    Had no idea Prior averaged that high with the bat, or that Sanga was no better than Dhoni or Haddin with the bat when keeping too.

    Any poll for best keeper that includes not just Jones but Prior as well is seriously flawed.
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    Anyone want to join the Society?

    Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.

    Where is Prasanna? He's not my first pick, but I would probably pick him over half of the keepers nominated.

    EDIT - not enough runs it seems.

    He shows up on the other table, including minnows in the opponents. you can vote for him if you dont want to choose anyone from the given list.

    EDIT: okay. you have gone for gilchrist too. i hope gilly walks in with 100% support. he deserves it.

    There is no way anyone could credibly vote for anyone but Gilly in this poll

    Gilchrist a dead certainty for wicketkeeper of the decade IMO, although Andy Flower's batting average is very impressive over his 16 test matches this decade.

    Went with Sangakkara, one of my favourite cricketers and I feel he should be in the team of the decade.

    I'd pick Gilchrist 99 tims out of 100. The hudredth time I'd think of picking Sangakarra and still take Gilly.

    Edit : Harsh on Flower perhaps.

    Would have been more tough if Gilly was NOT one of the choices .....
    Maybe we decide on who is the 2nd best....?
    My favourite X1
    Viru Sehwag, Matty Hayden,
    BC Lara, S Tendulkar, VVS Laxman, Andrew Flintoff,
    Adam Gilchrist
    S Warne, C Ambrose
    D Steyn, G McGrath
