    Mine .....

    Cairns

    Lara

    Note: I left the likes of Gilchrist and Sewag as being openers I've seen less of them in the last 10

    I'll choose lower order batsman, simply because it's more likely to occur.

    Klusener
    Cairns
    Afridi
    Flintoff
    Razzaq

    Others that could have been chosen (I'm specifically choosing from the middle to lower order) have been Symonds, Yuvraj, Lehmann, Pollock and I've probably forgotten others.

    There is a huge difference between being a big hitter and a great batsman. All of the above could hit any bowler in the world with gay abandon on their day, but none could be relied upon to win you a match. I would take Bevan or Tendulkar over all of these any day.

    I didn't start this tread intending to simply name great batsmen...The thread was.....5 top batsmen you'd like at the crease for the slog overs(last 10).

    And personally in the slog overs i'd prefer the 5 that I previously mentioned.

    I probably should have been more specific in that in a tight run-chase I would probably prefer Bevan of Tendulkar.

    I was actually referring to a situation where there were wickets in hand and the batting side just needed to put the foot down a blaze as many boundries as possible.

    brendon mccullum is the perfect sort of player for the last 10 overs IMO, he can play big shots, is as fast as anyone between wickets, rotates the strike almost at will and above all is great at improvising when required - although he hasn't fully proven himself yet he will do in time

    Yes McCullum is very promising, not quite in the Cairns, Afridi category yet. But in a slightly different and often clever way he can do heaps of damage in the last 10.

    I personally think McCullum is talented enough to be in the NZ side as a batsmen alone. The fact that he's Keeping well is a big bonus.

    Razzaq
    Cairns
    Inzamam
    Gilchrist
    Sehwag

    [I haven't seen enough of Flintoff to put him in that category]

    And of course Klusner at him pomp dwarfed all others.

    Team I'd want to be in the last 10 overs: Pakistan if we are playing the combination of Razzaq, Mahmood, Malik and Moin.

    I can't quite see this favour of Afridi. I wonder how many people would have put him in their top five if it weren't for his exaggerated style and the recent trashing.

    He averages 15 at No 6, 25 at No 5, 14 at No 7 and 20 at no 8. [20 mainly due to his recent inning] with only two fifties in over 40 matches.

    Compare this to Razzaq, who averages 30 of 44 matches with 1 hundred and 3 fifties at No 6, 33 at number seven from fifty-nine matches [many fifties], and 45 from 19 matches at number 8.

    Good point. Can't deny that Afridi is incredible unrealiable. However I select Afridi along with my other choices on the assumption that they would be firing and on top of their form. Even if that is 1 out of 20 innings for Afridi.
    I certainly not talking about the most consistant batsmen, or batsmen that I'd want batting for my life.

    If I had a fantasy game, I suppose it would be something like Gilchrist, Sewag and Ponting at the top batting for the first 20 overs, the likes of Lara, tendulkar and Kallis taking the next 20....and then the likes of Cairns, Afridi and Flintoff and co finishing the job in the last ten.

    Now it that all clicked together....You could have a 400 score...
