    Playing Selector: Team of the decade - the 00s

    It is December 2009. The truly pedantic ones will say the first decade of the new millennium will finish only by 2010. But it is time to select the CW dream XI of the 00s.

    As always, we will select two openers, two opening bowlers, one wicket keeper, three middle order batsmen, one spinner, the fourth bowler (who will be selected from the top runners up of bowling polls) and the last player - who will usually be an all rounder or additional bowler or additional batsman depending on the team composition.

    The stats posted on the thread will always be the numbers against the major test playing nations. The ICC/Aus match stats and all stats against Bang/ Zim will be excluded. But I will be giving separate links to stats for all the matches so that some of you who prefer to look at them can do so. There may be additional names on these lists from the options available in the polls. If anyone wants to vote for them they can write down the names in the thread. As long as they didnt vote in the polls, these votes will be counted separately. We will sleect the skipper in the end.

    Team so far

    Openers
    Matt Hayden (miles ahead in the polls)
    Virender Sehwag (leading Smith by a decent margin)

    Fast bowlers

    Shaun Pollock/ Dale Steyn/ Shoaib Akhthar (Tight race so far)
    Glenn McGrath (Clearly the No.1. choice to take the new ball)

    Two out of Lara, Dravid and Kallis, one out of Pollock abd Steyn, and Warne are likely to make it to the team soon.

    It would be great having Dravid come in when Hayden gets out first, and Ponting come in at 3 when Sehwag gets out.
