    Worlds Greatest All-Rounder - Poll 8 - West Indies

    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: Bangladesh

    Bravo has grossly underperformed, and his bowling seems to be getting more rubbish with time, whereas it should be improving. Therefore, I went for Gayle. Aveaging nearly 40 in both forms of the game, and his bowling, esp. in ODIs is very effective.

    Given I voted on the basis of test cricket for every poll and you seem to have done the opposite, the results could well end up strange and inconsistent. I'm assuming we'll have others voting on the basis of one or the other as well...

    Only in about the 5th poll though, and not in the opening post. I'd voted on most on them already when he said that and then I decided to keep at least my own votes consistent.

    Guess I was lucky that I read that in my third one, and the first two were the same in both game-forms.
