    I have a feeling this will be a whitewash.

    Unfortunately for Hayden, who IMO is the third choice opener for this team.

    Tendulkar and Gilchrist.

    13 voters within 10 minutes is impressive. Quickest start for any poll on CW I know of.

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

    Voted for Tendulkar and Anwar.

    Tendulkar the automatic choice.

    Tempted to select 10 or 12 names for the second opening partner. Question of which style of opener to select. The highly attacking Gilchrist, Jayasuriya or Sehwag. Perhaps the more slower accumulators like Waugh, Greenidge, Hayes or Ganguly. Selected Anwar as he combines the two styles so well (much like Tendulkar). A player capable of having the scoreboard read 0/90 off 15, and yet still go on to score the big century.

    I love that Tendulkar has a 100% record at the moment.

    On 2nd thoughts; scrap that. Sachin Tendulkar and Adam Gilchrist. Any chance of getting my poll vote changed?
