    Bond
    McGrath

    Even though Astle hasnt played much, he has looked good and no openers have done particularly well. His bowling could also be handy.

    Kirsten
    Astle/Gibbs (depending on who does better in the finals)
    Kallis
    Rhodes
    Cairns
    Bevan
    Boucher
    Pollock
    Vettori
    Bond
    McGrath

    Martyn, Harris & Ntini were all very close, I really wanted to put Ntini in because he has bowled superbly but has not claimed enough wickets and I needed to balance the side with a spinner.

    why would u rather have kallis apart from the fact he can bowl? Ponting is a much better one day batsman and the worlds best felder.

    Yeah but this is just for the series isn't it?
    I'd have Ponting ahead of Rhodes if this was a career side.

    I'd have to disagree with Ponting being the best fielder, I don't there is such a thing as a top fielder.

    Jonty Rhodes is a good ground fielder but drops quite a few catches
    Chris Harris is a good ground fielder but drops his fair share of catches
    Ricky Ponting usually doesn't turn up with both ground & catching skills at their peak.
