    Symonds is the clear standout...

    why is steve waugh in the poll?

    hes already in the team.

    Anyway Symonds, obvious choice. He dominated Pakistan in 2003 and hasnt looked back from there

    Bevan not being in the team would be pretty ridiculous.

    ... Symonds is a class one-day cricketer and a top world cup one. Not sure how you could dispute that.

    Symonds isnt "classy" but he is brute force.

    Bevan couldnt hit boundaries like Symonds does.

    Dravid, Symonds, and Bevan would all be up there.
    5-0

    RIP Craig Walsh (Craig) 1985-2012

    Proudly supporting the #2 cricketer of all time.

    Sanga isn't the best off spinner in the history of cricket? News to me.

    Can't believe I'm voting against Bevan being included in a one-day team, but especially when you are comparing WC performances rather than overall career, Symonds is the man. More explosive, and since he's matured, quite capable of mounting a rescue. Plus he's a much better fielder and also a better bowling option.
