    I think Kohli as an ATG by the time he finishes his career is a given.

    Root, Smith, Warner should get there too. Don't know if Amla will get there given his sub par performances when it 'matters'.

    QDK should potentially get there but he is still at such an early stage in his career, too early to make a comment on ATG status tbh.

    Dhawan - will go down as a very very good ODI opener, given his ICC achievements. Avg 44 SR 90 is not an average player by any means

    The rest - No
    Why isn't Kane included?

    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta

    I got pelted with abuse for saying England were over hyped, and lo and behold, England were over hyped.

    India and England were not over hyped. They still are the 2 best teams on paper.

    What was overhyped though was our bowling attack imo. Looked toothless in a lot of the games for long periods. All those run outs against SA and Jadhav helped cover up some of the cracks. Bhuvi was outstanding though and Yadav/Bumrah had decent games and 1 crap outing. each.

    Indian attack was quite balanced. Had a fairly bit if variety and were generally quite accurate. A more attacking bowler probably needed in periods where containment didn't work but overall the attack was very good.

    Shame for them then that it wasn't the ICC Champions Trophy of Armchair Cricket then, they'd have walked it!

    But seriously I laughed before the tournament at suggestion England are/were favourites, and now they're the only team of ENG, PAK, IND, AUS, NZL, SAF and SRL not to win this competition - or the World Cup for that matter, let's pencil them in as favourites for every ODI competition from now and forever.



    I think the problem is England have some high profile names and they don't always perform, not as consistently as you need in knockout competitions anyway. Wasn't until this tournament we saw how good Pakistan's bowling unit is, definitely better than India's, and apart from cracking under pressure facing 300+ from India and not having batted 1st in the tournament, Pakistan hadn't done much to suggest they couldn't win it.

    Of course India might have won it had they batted 1st, psychological advantage flushed down the dunny and the chance to put a big score on the board and Pakistan under pressure down with it. Real shame was none of the semis and the final were close games, did like the excusism coming out of the England camp when Pakistan humbled them though

    I expect they've got a surplus at the moment.
    What if all the switches get stuck on 'destroy'?
