    World's Greatest All-Rounder - Poll 6 - Sri Lanka

    I will do a series of polls, 1 for each test playing nation (now including Zim and Bangla + a combined associates poll) to see who you believe is the best all rounder of that country. I will then place all of the poll winners in another poll, to determine who the worlds best all-rounder is.

    This poll will end in 1 week.
    Next Poll: South Africa

    The poll isn't up yet, but Vaas better be on it or I'm boycotting.

    Arnold has retired by the way.

    Dilshan a bit stiff not to get a mention.

    Arnold is still on the central contract list, so he counts, Dilshan i always only rated as a batsman

    Dilshan is certainly a better bowler than Arnold. Especially given Arnold has retired!

    No problems. This is what the forum is for - putting forward opinions on players, teams, tactics etc. I'm just trying to get some life into the thread.

    Sorry but these polls are getting annoying. Not telling you to stop, just thought I'd let you know.

    Sanath's in the last dash of his career so Vaas for me, five years ago this may have been a harder decision to make.

    Chandana too.

    Maharoof FTW. Though he's not really that good either.

    Jayasuria's the only one of these who arguably plays the role of an allrounder in ODIs. The best of the lot too.
