    Has to be Ponting. The one time Ponting's the cut-and-dried best choice and SST's not around to enjoy it.

    I've left out Asanka Gurusinghe from the 300 + list because his average was around 26, and made batting avg of 30 as the cut off.

    I went for Ponting, but only because Richards could probably slot in at #5.

    Richards - only man who could deny Ponting this slot. Punter will have to go in at 4.
