Of the cricketing variety, that is. The Match Referee Awards for the best dressed/looking at this year's Brownlow Medal night has become the most viewed page on our blog, by a long way. We have received numerous emails leading up to and after the ICC Cricketer of the Year Awards asking us to do a similar post.
Like many of our readers who have written in, I must admit that I too was disappointed to see practically no red carpet pictures of the event. It is rather strange, given the Indian tabloid media's propensity to print pictures of anything with a half-pretty face and two legs.
However, we are hard-working people at here at The Match Referee, and we don't like to disappoint our loyal subjects. Hence, hot on the heels of Stick Cricket's hotly contested poll, we have managed to procure a few snaps of the better looking, better halves of current and former international cricketers (you gotta love Google). Now its up to you to pick your favourite WAG (wives and girlfriends)and tell us who is tops (click on the images to enlarge).
<-- Simon Katich doesn't seem to hit the ball too well these days, but he has a good looking wife in Georgie Willis. Respect. --> The receding hair line and prominent bald patch on the top of his head didn't hold Jaques Kallis back from pulling in the stunning former Miss South Africa, Cindy Nel. Any relation to Andre?
--> No cricketing WAG list is complete without a contender from Bollywood. Last we heard, Kim Sharma was wowing Yuvraj Singh with her classic good looks.
<-- Ian Harvey could not make the most of his chances in the Australian team. It seems he made all the right moves when selecting his better half - Amanda Harvey.
--> Matthew Hayden has also found himself in the Aussie selectors' bad books recently. Methinks it may be his culinary skills that are keep him in wife Kellie Hayden's good books. Just as an aside, that mop cut goes pretty close to Dizzy's mullet as the worst hairstyle, ever.
<-- Nathan Bracken is on top of the ODI wicket-taking list this year. Given that he's not all that pleasant on the eye, he'd be on top of the world after managing to dupe the vivacious Hayley Bracken into marrying him.
--> This is Graeme Smith's girlfriend, Minki Van Der Westhuizen. The South African model has been such a hit with cricket loving men the world over that, apparently, after voting on the Stick Cricket poll, one gentlemen was forced to ask, "How the **** did Graeme Smith get her?" Here, here.
<-- The number of people searching on Google with the phrase "Brett Lee Wife" is amazing. Some have ended up here, but probably not found what they were looking for. Liz Kemp qualifies for this WAG list of her own accord, however, this picture is also dedicated those poor souls who have forlornly clicked on many a page, without managing to catch a glimpse of "Brett Lee Wife".
<-- The hearts of a million lasses turned black when Andrew Flintoff announced he was tying the knot. You can't really blame the man, for he has done well for himself with Mrs Rachel Flintoff.
--> Vinod Kambli may have failed as a cricketer and as a Bollywood actor. However, he can count on many a hoarding for Bollywood movies with wife Andrea Kambli's (formerly Andrea Hewitt) face plastered all over.
