    A few weeks ago I'd have gone for Punter without hesitation, but currently I think it's a toss-up between Sangakarra & Kallis, with Sachin nibbling their ankles and looking a pretty reasonable facsimilie of his previous self.

    As far as Inzy is concerned, that's not a list - it's a menu.

    I'd no idea he was even still playing.

    In any case - clearly Jamie How currently. Well, maybe Rohit Sharma if he can keep-up the stunning form of his recent 37*.
