Forty Funniest Cricketers of All Time - Master List
Here are the forty funniest cricketers of all time. Because, as the tagline says, 'funny cricket > good cricket' and it's about time that was reflected in a set of wildly subjective rankings.
The criteria for 'funniest cricketer' should become clear as you read through, but in big picture terms, I'm looking for players who did funny things on the international stage while playing. (Apologies to all those hilarious Klub Klowns playing in club cricket. And apologies to your Jimmy Neeshams who might be very funny on the Twitter, but less so on the field of play.) I also mostly stick to players I've seen being hilarious in my lifetime. (Although there are a few exceptions whose comedy legend transcends time, as you'll see.)
