    Murali ahead of Warne, for mine.
    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    Not sure about Lara. Test team, yes, but ODIs, other players could be looked at.

    Was about to say the same about Lara, but then in his prime he was one of the top ODI players in the world. And his career accomplishments are pretty huge. That said, I'd still question his inclusion somewhat.

    Utterly ludicrous IMO to do a ODI team that mixes the likes of Richards, Imran and Garner with the 1990s crop.

    The game of the '70s and '80s was different to how it has been the last 2 decades and you should do separate teams if you want to do the excercise properly.

    Different sports, IMO.

    Imran, Lara and Jayasuria are the contentious spots here IMO, and probably the spinner as well.

    Would have Tendulkar opening myself, with someone like Jones or Ponting in the middle order. Don't mind Lara that much, though there are a few other candidates that could challenge him for that spot. Tough to call.

    Wouldn't pick Imran based on his record either. His economy rate is the most notable feature, and 3.90 isn't that remarkable for pre-90s ODIs. He was obviously a fine bowler, but as a number 7 I'd rather see Klusener or Kapil picked. Kapil was probably the better striker of the ball, and is better suited to closing the innings. I don't think there's any doubt about Klusener there either. You could also pick Pollock, but he's a bit lacking in the batting area for numbr 7 IMO, like Imran.

    Take your pick from Murali, Saqlain and Warne for the spinner's spot.

    I'd say Jayasuriya is there because of the way he helped revolutionize the approach to the first 15 overs of ODI cricket.

    Jayasuria is a good choice for mine. Very aggressive opener, and you can afford to be with batting depth like this. He could also be useful as a part time spinner as well.

    I'd bring Klusener and Murali in for Imran and Warne. Obvious case of two guys very suited to this form of the game over two legends who couldn't match their Test match quality.

    I'm a bit iffy about Lara as well, and I'd like to bring in another middle order bat from the earlier era, but I can't think of anyone better off the top of my head.

    Switch Lara for Dean Jones and shuffle around the order a bit.

    i would replace tendulkar with miandad in the tms team
    sure tendulkar has better stats but always fails when it comes to the crunch situation

    Murali > Saqqie\Bhajji IMO.

    I'd also prefer Bevan at three to Lara.
