    Not having Michael Bevan, Joel Garner and Vivian Freaking Richards in an all time ODI team is an absolute crime against humanity. You left out the two out of three greatest batsmen of all time and the greatest fast bowler of all time (in ODI format).

    Not peculiar at all. That's a good lineup. I think I would have Ponting in there somewhere though, probably for Klusener.

    Yes Richards should probably be in there probably at the expense of Beefy. Don't think you could find a place for Garner but I would probably not have Imran Khan in there and include Bevan

    He was a great hitter alright, capable of winning games from impossible situations at times

    Garner is only the best ODI fast bowler of all time.

    He was definitely a great ODI bowler. Whether he is the best of all time is debatable but fair enough if you think he is. He's definitely up there.

    I don't really think there's much debate over Garner's position as a one day bowler. He conceded more than 50 runs only 3 times, and ended with an average of under 19. You don't leave him out.
