    Surely it has to be the inspirational Freddie Flintoff. What has Paula Radcliffe (or anyone for that matter) done to get ahead of him?

    Such as?
    I can't remember the last time a cricketer won or has even been nominated for Sports Personality of the Year. There probably have been some before I was born I suppose.

    He said footballers have other award ceremonies, which cricketers do too.

    As for the BBC award, Jim Laker, David Steele and [obviously] Ian Botham have won it in the past.

    Yes but I'm sure footballers have more awards....

    Football Writers' Award
    Young Player of the Year
    Player of the Year
    Manager of the year
    UEFA best keeper, defender, midfielder, forward
    FIFPro awards....

    Then we have our own manager of the month etc.

    I know that, I was asking what these cricketers' other award ceremonies are.
    I'm talking about the main award here by the way. All I'm saying is that the last time a cricketer won was 24 years ago, whilst 2 footballers have won in the last 7.

    They have the ICC awards obviously. Don't get me wrong btw, Flintoff and the England team would be the obvious choices and almost certainly will win it.

    I live in Sydney and i support the swans (i know people who like essendon), but i don't really follow the afl much cause I like the rugby (and the a-league - omg, it's got to work! It really must succeed!). the only appeal in afl for me is the players (they have the nicest toned arms.)

    I hope the swans win.

    Have you heard of a player called Setanta O'hAilpin (he's Irish) I think he plays for Carlton. He was quite a celebrity over here, and a great hurler, until he decided to go and make his fortune down under.
    I've heard of him, well I do support Cork after all.

    ur right !! i cant think of many new great fast bowlers.

    the 90's produced legendary fast bowlers such as

    : waqar, wasim , ambrose, walsh, donald, mcgrath,pollock, vaas ......

    yet not many of late : unpredictable shoaib - brett (gives away too may runs) lee .

    although shane bond when not injures is the most destruvtive out of the new crop.
