    2005 World ODI XI - Based on performances for the year

    My Oneday World XI for the year 2005 is.....

    I provided their stats for the year...

    GILCHRIST - Batting ave 35 Batting SR 103
    VINCENT - Batting ave 48 Batting SR 108
    INZAMAM (c)- Batting ave 55 Batting SR 89
    PIETERSEN- Batting ave 65 Batting SR 103
    HUSSEY - Batting ave 146 Batting SR 108
    SYMONDS - Batting ave 41 Batting SR 91 Bowling ave 39 ER 4.81
    STYRIS - Batting ave 39 Batting SR 74 Bowling ave 31 ER 4.23
    VETTORI- Batting ave 21 Batting SR 98 Bowling ave 27 ER 3.93
    BOND - Bowling ave 18 Bowling ER 4.41
    MURALI - Bowling ave 26 ER 3.98
    McGRATH - Bowling ave 19 Bowling ER 3.65


    Super sub Lee/Kemp

    It might seem a suprise that Styris beats allrounders Flintoff/Kemp and Pollock. But his stats for the year were better.

    This team has very strong deep batting and has Styris and Symonds sharing the 5th Bowling slots.

    Thoughts??

    If you have alternatives, please provide their 2005 stats as part of your argument

    yeah dhoni should definitely be in for gilchrist. graeme smith as an opener. muralitharan shouldn't be there, perhaps brett lee in his place. whatever, this side is kind of boring as its not even close to being a true "world XI".

    51 wickets at 19.94 and someone who can bat at 9 against someone who's only played 9 games and taken 17 wickets and is not great with the bat....

    Don't think that side needs the extra batting, and Bond is actually quite a useful hitter and has a firstclass 100.

    As far as bowling goes, I'd take Bond everytime over Lee since Bond actually uses his Brain when he bowls

    Bond's been good, but come on. Lee is the leading ODI wicket taker in the world this year by a fair margin, that too at a superb average and a solid economy rate, and he can bat and field far better than Bond. It's a no brainer - Lee is a must-pick.

    Especially since Bond basically had two good ODI games this year, in which he took 10 of his 17 wickets, one of which was against Zimbabwe. In his other series, he struggled. How can you pick a guy for a team of the year based on two games?

    I'd have them both in the side. Perhaps at the expense of Styris, who would be SS.
