    Gilchrist v Dhoni

    Whom would you pick in your All Time ODI XI?

    I would pick Dhoni tbh. His average has crossed 50 and will remain at that if he manages to stay not out the last 7 balls of the 2nd ODI v Australia.

    Dhoni can rotate the ball, then strike the ball miles in the death. He has played some terrific ODI knocks as well. Gilchrist gives you 35 runs @ SR of 95. Dhoni gives you 50 runs @ SR of 90. I don't think it is clear who is superior.

    It's an unfair comparison IMO. Gilchrist has it all behind him, Dhoni's barely even halfway there.

    He has played half the matches Gilchrist has. So you are probably right Uppercut.

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

    It is if you have watched them. Dhoni is still around the same age as Gilchrist when he debuted for Australia, I reckon he could be better one day. But certainly not today.

    Today Gilchrist.....

    but if dhoni maintain what he has done with bat and glove so far ...the captaincy could tilt it in his favor may be after 6-7 more years
    Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.

    Indeed.

    That said, I'd probably open with Hayden (or someone similar) and Tendulkar in an all-time XI. So there's not really any room for Gilchrist, but there's room for Dhoni.

    Wouldn't mind if a mod closed this thread. Wouldn't make me look less silly mind you.
