    Pretty sure this was discussed in a heap of threads of late.

    I vote Pietersen because he plays for England and I like England players better. There, easy.

    I'd take Sangakkara personally.

    Kumar Sangakkara is by far the more versatile and more consistent player. You don't even need their career records to figure that one out.

    Sangakarra at this point in their careers, but I believe Pietersen will make a much better fight of it by the end of his career.

    I think we need to weed out the biased English vote, discuss preferences for skin tone, and analyse their respective swaggers at the crease.

    Athlai doesn't lie. And he doesn't do sarcasm either, so you know it's true!

    What's Sangakkara's record like against Warne and McGrath?............

    Seriously, I'm not even going to bother getting into this conversation. I'll just let wtf_ben(insertrandomnumbershere) make a **** out of himself.

    The irrelevant third option made me laugh, the suggestion that Pratters is better than anyone, heh.

    Realise it's in jest, but no need to aggravate what's already a bit of a tense situation between you guys.


    Anywho, would definitely take Sanga over KP at this stage. Still early days for KP (and Sanga too, tbf, he's only 32), so who knows in a few years time.
