    I don't think Kallis has ever opened the batting.

    Murali for Pollock if the conditions suit.
    why in the world would anyone have Pollock over Gillespie or kasparowicz?
    Tendulkar = the most overated player EVER!!
    Beckham = the most overated footballer EVER!!
    Vassell = the biggest disgrace since rikki clarke!!

    problem is that if andrew symonds is the measuring stick, then you might as well come up with a list of batsmen who wouldnt make the australian side, as there would be very few.

    Yea, but I had to get him in there somewhere . I think he'd make a good opener though.

    Because this is assuming they are in their prime I'm guessing? And there ain't no way in hell you can argue that at their peaks Kaspa is better than Pollock!

    And even then, all 3 bowlers are past their best now-a-days anyway if its referring to current form.

    Lara would not make it based on the performances of the past 12 months. And neither would Sangakkara, at least as an opener (he averages 37 as an opener in tests).

    But Gilchrist's form isn't as good either, so he might make it (but not open!). And Dravid is most definatly not a number six. I'd put him in place of Lara.

    In the last 7 matches, Lara only averages 36.

    Yes Sanga would. Who would make it in front of him? In test cricket, the only one possible is Akmal and I think Sanga's past 12 months have been better. Can't confirm that though and am too lazy to statsguru it.

    Yes, after statsguru'ing it, I'd agree with you. He has been doing better than Gilchrist.

    pollock's peak was so long ago that there is no point even talking about it right now. in the last 5 years, kaspa and gillespie have been far better performers than pollock.

    I can't believe you'd take Kasprowicz over Pollock even in this day and age.

    Jeez TEC, I know you're a huge Kaspa fan, I got used to that when you would constantly claim Kaspa deserved a ODI spot ahead of Lee, but by Golly I never thought you'd claim Kaspa better than Polly. (I hope you realised that rhymes!)

    Anyway, since the start of the 2001 up until now, a comparison between both players shows that Pollock trumps Kaspa!

    Kaspa in his prime was a far better bowler than Pollock since 2001.
