    Tough choice given the long tail that would be presented if either of Murali, Warne or Saqlain are selected.

    Given we are talking about an all time great ODI XI, I would expect the top seven and Akram to do the run scoring. On that basis I select Muralitharan, in my opinion the best spin bowler to ever play ODI's. You can only imagine the carnage he would unleash if he had a high quality pace attack in support.

    I went for Murali too.

    I considered Hogg and Vettori as they would make the batting stronger, but figured both players would look a little out of place in an all time ODI team.

    Thinking about this a little more, why couldn't we have picked 2 spinners, because it's almost certain that the number 7 is going to be a pace bowler. Always love the 3 quicks and 2 spinners combination.

    the top runner up spinner will be included in the poll along with allrounders and top runner up middle order batsmen.

    Warne. Statistically as good or close enough to the others. Was absolute champion at WCs and has an amazing record there. His performances in 99 will be amongst the greatest in the history of cricket. He also was a decent bat and excellent slip fielder.
    I think there'll sooner be another Bradman than another Warne. - Gidgeon Haigh

    [Warne is] the greatest bowler ever produced in this entire world - Muttiah Muralidaran

    [Warne is] the greatest bowler of all time - Glenn McGrath


    In my opinion Shane Warne is the greatest cricketer who's ever lived - Ian Botham

    Warne is the greatest cricketer to pick up a ball ever.
    And is the greatest bowler I have ever laid eyes on. - Brian Lara

    Saqlain for me .

    His record in Odi's,both average,economy and even strike rate is immense.

    I know Murali or Warne will win based on their test performances but ,Saqlain was the ultimate ODI spinner.

    Vettori solely for the batting, shortens the tail.

    Murali if it were a stronger tail.
    Direbirds FTW!

    He never really produced the goods batting in ODIs, an average of 13.05 backs this up.
