    Best IPL XI

    With all of the group matches over, who would you select as the best XI players for each position in the IPL. Mine would be...

    1. S Marsh (Punjab)
    2. G Gambhir (Delhi)
    3. S Jayasuriya (Mumbai)
    4. S Watson (Rajasthan)
    5. K Sangakarra+ (Punjab)
    6. R Sharma (Deccan)
    7. A Mørkel (Chennai)
    8. I Pathan (Punjab)
    9. S Warne (c) (Rajasthan)
    10. S Tanvir (Rajasthan)
    11. G McGrath (Delhi)

    Seems like a good lineup to me, but probably a bit too seamer heavy with Warne and Jayasuriya the only spinning options.

    For Indian IT20 XI (not based solely on IPL, but also T20 matches)
    1. V Sehwag (Delhi)
    2. G Gambhir (Delhi)
    3. Y Pathan (Rajasthan)
    4. R Sharma (Deccan)
    5. Y Singh (Punjab)
    6. M Dhoni (Chennai)
    7. I Pathan (Punjab)
    8. P Chawla (Punjab)
    9. Z Khan (Bangalore)
    10. M Gony (Chennai)
    11. S Sreesanth (Punjab)

    The speed at which a fielding team gets through the innings is overrated.

    Parthiv Patel got more than a few chances at the international level,
    more so than Yusuf Pathan, Amit Mishra,Sohail Tanvir etc who didnt make your list on that count. (though Tanvir has recenty gotten many breaks due to the sporadic availability of Asif, Gul and Akhtar)

    The wk-bat that really fits this list may be Wriddhiman Saha who wouldnt even have been in the Bengal Ranji team if Deep Dasgupta hadn't ICL'ed . Alternatively YV Takavale.

    Warne as coach will see this team do quite well.
