    # 3 for 1986-2006 World XI (Final Selection)

    Based on the rules stated in the Preliminary Poll for the best # 3 between 1986-2006, the top four vote recipients will now go into a 3-day selection Poll.

    Note: The three runner-ups will go into the preliminary Poll for the # 4 position.

    The 1986-2006 stats for the # 3 final nominees are:

    Rahul Dravid (RHB): 104 tests, 9048 runs @ 58.75, 23 centuries, 46 fifties ---- [6818 @ 61.42]

    Younis Khan (RHB): 47 tests, 3884 runs @ 49.16, 12 centuries, 15 fifties ---- [2825 @ 51.36]

    Brian Lara (LHB): 128 tests, 11505 runs @ 52.05, 32 centuries, 47 fifties ---- [3484 @ 59.05]

    Ricky Ponting (RHB): 105 tests, 8792 runs @ 58.22, 31 centuries, 34 fifties ---- [6294 @ 66.25]


    EDIT: Oh yeah, the 1986-2006 World XI so far:

    1. Matthew Hayden (LHB): 84 tests, 7326 runs, 53.08, 26 centuries, 26 fifties
    2. Saeed Anwar (LHB): 55 tests, 4052 runs, 45.52, 11 centuries, 25 fifties

    Lara hasn't really played enough at 3 to win a vote for the position on its own IMO, and is better suited down around 5.

    So it's between Dravid and Ponting for me. I've gone Ponting.

    Best conversion rate of the four, best average at # 3 since Bradman, most agressive of the four, RHB to complement the two LHB openers, no contest..... Ponting!

    Lara is more aggresive than Ponting.

    Sorry, my mistake, but only just...

    Lara, SR 60.31
    Ponting, SR 58.22
    Younis Khan, SR 53.73
    Dravid, SR 42.24

    At least the Best average at # 3 since Bradman was correct

    What's the point of this? You had your one poll. Ponting won. Why another one? How many bloody polls do you want?

    What to do, Members complain that there's too many players in the Poll; please have a smaller group to vote on; the format of a preliminary poll, followed by the top 4-player selection poll is agreed in the Main 1986-2006 World XI thread and now an esteemed CW Staff Member swears at me

    Resignation pending.........

    Aggresiveness is more than S/R. Sir Viv's S/R doesn't tell you nearly enough about his aggresiveness.

    You need one poll, and that poll should have three-five choices.

    What in the ****ing hell is the point of a poll with 15 choices when 10 of those choices will get zero votes?

    My thoughts entirely. The only people who should change their votes are those who voted for wild, ridiculous options in the first place.

    Oh yeah, and who chooses the 3-5 players. I can't wait to see your outrage because Sir Viv wasn't nominated in the # 5 position ahead of Waugh, Border and Lara

    Make it six then. There aren't more than six people who have a chance to win.

    Sir Viv, Waugh, Border, Lara and two others.

    Seems fair to me. I doubt anyone will be outraged that Azharuddin didn't make it.

    What about Inzy, Thorpe, Gower, Kallis, Moh'd Yousif, Mark Waugh and/or the three runner ups from the # 4 position (i.e. maybe Dravid, Younis, Miandad).....oops, we're back to 13.....

    No one would vote for Younis, Mark Waugh, Gower, Thorpse, Inzy, etc. over Sir Viv, Steve Waugh, Lara for #5 test position.

    If they do, their votes shouldn't be counted as they are idiots.
