    A Real 'World' ODI XI Side

    OK, I'm little bored and I've been thinking about this for a bit.

    Put together an ODI side containing 11 players from different nationalities

    e.g you must have one player from Australia, Bangladesh, England, India, New Zealand, Pakistan, South Africa, Sri Lanka, West Indies, Zimbabwe, and another player from another nation (e.g Steve Tikolo, John Davison, Ed Joyce)

    ODIs:

    1 Steven Fleming (NZ)
    2 Sachin Tendulkar (I)
    3 Mohammad Ashraful (B)
    4 Brian Lara (WI)
    5 Inzamam-ul-Haq (P)
    6 Andrew Flintoff (E)
    7 Steve Tikolo (K)
    8 Tatenda Taibu (Z)
    9 Shaun Pollock (SA)
    10 Glenn McGrath (A)
    11 Muttiah Muralitharan (SL)

    That would be a good side, but I would bat Ashraful down the order.

    Drop Fleming, bring in Bond.

    Drop Pollock, bring in De Villiers (now that is an big call but I'm a big fan of AB!. )

    EDIT: Aimed at JJ's side.

    Not really a big call, just a premature one since AB struggles to make the SA ODI team at the moment. He'll probably improve as time goes on and show just as much promise as he has shown in test cricket.

    I guess I meant it's a big call in that I think if he played in that side regularly now I don't think he'd look completely inept.
