    Who would you rather have?

    Who would you rather have on your cricket team? The world's best batsman (Ponting)? The world's best fast bowler (Ntini, I suppose)? The world's best spinner (Murali)?

    Now that McGrath has retired from cricket, this might be a hard choice.

    I won't rate Ntini as the best fast bowler as he is only good on bouncy and fast tracks but on slow and low flat tracks he is a pretty average bowler (recent example :- WC 07).



    So SS even if you are bit tubby i would still vote for you mate.

    When fit is the big issue. And point is taken regarding ODI bowling, but I don't really take that into consideration tbh. He's a very good Test bowler, who hasn't proven himself on flat tracks yet. But with the retirement of McGrath, the field is wide open anyway.

    Brett Lee: 231 Test wickets @ 31.60, 267 ODI wickets @ 22.65
    Shane Bond: 74 Test wickets @ 22.10, 125 ODI wickets @ 19.22

    You should probably wait for someone who isn't biased to give a fair answer, but I would say that Bond is a better bowler than Lee.

    People who voted for Ponting over Murali.. would you still have voted for Ponting if the poll had said Warne instead of Murali? If no, why? A bit curious.
