    Most Indispensable player in World Cricket?

    Its a simple question, who do you guys think is the most indispensable member for their team.

    The obvious answer should be Murali but it would be interesting to see who is # 2 i would think its is Kallis.

    Kumble is so indispensible, he made the list twice.

    I think it's got to be Sangakarra mainly due the side he plays in.

    I was thinking (after Murali obviously) Fleming - he's held a sometimes quite ordinary bunch of players together and gelled them into a real team.

    Not so sure about Ntini, seeing as Andre Nel would potentially be the spearhead if Ntini wasn't there.

    Rafique - no chance. Enamul Haque jnr is almost up there in the Test arena, while Rafique has been below par in one-dayers recently. Bangladesh are swaying towards playing only one main spinner in ODIs, with the likes of Saqibul, Alok, Mehrab jnr, Rajin providing backup (although two of those are not even decent part-timers).

    Murali has basically and single handedly carried his team throughout his playing days. I know they have had some good players but really, he has been there go-to man.

    Jungle Jumbo raises a good point about Fleming though, but say if he was unable to continue playing I think we have a very good replacement as captain in Daniel Vettori if his back is up to it.
