I vote for any beard which was grown to promote and raise funds for Everyman's fight against testicular cancer!

Stroller, this is a piece of incisive, wel-researched journalism.

You can tell there's going to be a fair few trawling through the profiles on cricinfo, having a laugh about the beards, then wallowing around afterwards wondering where 45 minutes of their lives have just gone. Speaking of which...

Sorry, but I can't claim to have written the budgie story! What a pity

Brilliant.

Freddie and Monty are former beard of the year winners aren't they?

Reminds me of the quote from KP's mother though (about his 'skunk' haircut in 2005)

'No matter what happens, a mother will always love her son.'

If inflicting pain is a sport then Chuck Norris has the best sporting beard by far...Seriously though I think he was Karate world Champion or something so he gets my vote.

I'm growing a beard at the moment through sheer laziness, does that count?

Sebastian Chabal (French rugby player) certainly deserves a mention

BUT, the winner must surely be All Black Jason Eaton ... I defy you to find a better beard in any sport, anywhere - with the possible exception of Eastern Bloc women's weightlifting ...

Beat this puppy!

I asume the little picture is Jason Eaton, because the big one is Justin Lee Collins surely.

Inziman-ul-Haq usually had a quality beard, and whilst we're on the cricketing theme, can I mention Bill Frindle, he is the bearded wonder after all.

Alain Robidoux the Candian snooker player had a dodgy chin and covered it with a dodgier beard.

I think Sebastien Chabal is kind of fit. Is that just too bizarre?

That is quite weird Hannah.
Speaking of rugby players, George Chuter used to have a santa claus beard.

David James sometimes has funny beards. Amla obviously.

surely this beard worn by Jimmy Hill is the clear winner, although i did like Roy Keane's "ive been painting the lines with my beard" beard.
