    Select THREE middle order batsmen: Best of 00s

    Here are the top middle order batsmen of the decade. I have listed out those who have scored 2000+ runs @ 40+ batting average against major test teams batting anywhere between 3 and 11. Please select THREE of them. Since Andy Flower misses the cut off by a whisker (and would make it if all opponents are taken into account) I have given him a wild card entry.

    Wouldn't it be better if we pick them by position ?

    Ponting, Lara & Dravid.

    Tendy just missed out since between WI 2002 to about PAK 2007/08 he really was below his best of the 90s.

    dravid, kallis and chanderpaul are too slow. tendulkar, hussey and clarke have had mixed fortunes. andy flower, steve waugh and de villiers didn't play as much as others. inzamam, yousuf, jayawardane and sangakara are just unlucky to miss out.

    i go for ponting, pietersen and lara. all excellent stroke players and champion cricketers. only issue is two of them are failures in india. but the decade belonged to them.

    My first instinct would be

    3. Ponting
    4. Kallis
    5. Chanderpaul

    Wow. Will consider a little longer before voting though.

    Edit : That was complete gut instinct, haven't looked at the stats.

    I know I want Ponting and Lara. Torn on the 3rd choice. It's between Tendy, Pietersen, and Dravid. Will take some time to decide.

    Picked Ponting, Inzy, Tendulkar. Inzy severely underrated I feel.
