    IMO it has to be Imran or Hadlee. I went for Paddles for patriotic reasons and the fact I think that the batting in this team is already strong enough.

    It just has to be Jacques Kallis, imo, but apparently I'm the only one who agrees.

    steve waugh - team of the last two decades without him is a mockery, and he can bowl a bit. protest vote really given imran's lead...

    LOL at pollock being included here - definitely a bowling allrounder for 8, or at most 7, not 6.

    The color of immortality, nature and envy - you are truly a unique person. While clearly the color of nature, you also symbolize rebirth, fertility and hope in the world. On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!

    not really. i can see two votes against his name. you are not alone!

    I went for imran. with ambrose, mcgrath, imran, warne and murali this bowling line up will give any all-time XI a run for its money. you can substitute one great name with another. but the quality of this bowling attack is as good as any in the history of the game. if someone can present a better bunch of bowlers from the same era i would be surprised.

    the batting looks formidable too. only teams from other eras can better this bunch. for example, the batting line up of 1919 - 1939 era (between world wars) would be hobbs, sutcliffe, bradman, headley, hammond, ames (wk) and gregory. there cant be a better line up certainly!!

    but before we congratualte ourselves on a job well done, lets us wait and see if imran actually wins this poll and if murali is the fifth bowling option!
