Forty Funniest Cricketers of All Time
38. Mohammad Irfan
As we'll see throughout this list, there are many different ways of making people laugh. To quote renowned humorist Liam Neeson, there's âimprov, stand-up comedy, funny monologues, crazy characters, sketches, slapstick, anecdotes, parody'.
Not all those forms will make the list. But you know what will? Out and out physical comedy. Where somebody amuses us simply because of their jarring deviation from the norm. It's not a particularly sophisticated or witty brand of humour, and not many such purveyors will make the list. But they do so here, via the amusingly extreme form of Mohammad Irfan.
Mohammad Irfan is very tall. The tallest man to ever play international cricket.
Here he is being tall in a huddle.
Here he is being tall while receiving a jumping high ten from a team-mate.
And here he is being tall that time he visited New York.
Kudos on being so amusingly tall, Mohammad Irfan. It's enough to make you the 38th funniest person in the history of cricket.
