    Cricket Web's World Twenty20 XI

    Cricket Web's World Twenty20 XI

    Ganesh takes a look back at the players that made all of the difference in the World Twenty20 in the Carribean. Will you agree with Cricket Web's best XI of the tournament?

    Lacks a fifth bowling option. Don't really know who I would've picked though.

    Shaun Tait imo. Open with Akmal, leave out Butt.

    ya..I didn't notice that

    I would drop Butt and go with Angelo Mathews..open with Kamran Akmal..

    I thought he had a decent tournment.. his knock against India was pretty good..

    Would pick Tait/Mohd Aameer instead of sidebum and Cameron White ahead of Butt. Line up would be:

    M Jayawardene
    K Akmal
    S Raina
    K Pietersen
    E Morgan
    M Hussey
    C White
    S Smith
    G Swann
    D Nannes
    M Aameer/ S Tait

    White, Raina and KP can share the 5th bowler duties.

England will win in Australia again this winter as they are a better side which they have shown this summer. 3-0 doesn't lie girls.

    Yes the fifth bowling slot kills the named team.

    Take a look at the three Twenty20 World Cup champions and the bowling lineup's for the finals.

    India 07
    - RP Singh
    - S Sreesanth
    - J Sharma
    - Y Pathan
    - I Pathan
    - H Singh

    Pakistan 09
    - M Aamer
    - A Razzaq
    - S Afridi
    - S Ajmal
    - S Malik
    - U Gul

    England 10
    - Sidebottom
    - Bresnan
    - Broad
    - Swann
    - Yardy
    - Wright

    A successful Twenty20 team needs five/six bowlers better than part-time status. I would be seriously worried if I was relying on one of KP, White or Raina to provide an option outside of the four named bowlers.

    Nice. Really backs up what we were talking about in the other thread a few days back. The seventh batsman rarely plays a big role, but the fifth bowler is every bit as important as the first four.

    Yeah, although he largely bowled pus I'd have Watson ahead of Butt for that reason if nothing else.

    Gotta have Tait in there too, IMHO. Bowled his overs for less than a run a ball. Vettori the only other bowler who bowled more than 15 overs to do that and he took 3 wickets to Tait's 9.

    My XI:

    Kieswetter*
    Watson
    Jayawardene
    Pietersen
    Morgan
    White +
    Hussey
    Smith
    Swann
    Nannes
    Tait

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."
