    Tests - a bit tricky actually IMO. Probably Sehwag, ahead of Steyn and Watson.
    ODIs - Dhoni, ahead of Watson.
    T20s - have repeatedly demonstrated that I don't follow it enough to have an informed opinion.

    Would take Steyn myself for tests, he is fulfills the most important role in the side and is quite clearly the best in the world. Sehwag and Sachin probably my second and third, maybe Johnson as well. They would be my first 4 picks.

    Tests - Kallis.
    ODIs - Dhoni.
    T20s - Pollard wouldn't be a bad shout, IMO.

    Pollard? Bowls pies with the ball and is a major International dud with the bat; has a lower batting average in T20i's than Luke Wright ffs. Don't get why Pollard's rated so highly, a few OK innings on very flat pitches and he's suddenly the first name on the team sheet in T20 cricket? =/ Even Yusuf Pathan's done it on a more regular basis than Keiron Pollard. Pollard's basically Napier without the bowling.

    Tests: Dale Steyn
    ODi's: Dhoni/Watson
    T20i's: Gul/Vettori

    Fair enough, I haven't watched enough T20Is or T20s from other leagues to have an opinion on this really. I was just throwing his name out there.

    Yeah I can see Pollard not even being the first name on the West India T20I team sheet. Gayle and Bravo would probably be the first IMO. Then the likes of Pollard, Chanders and Taylor.

    This, although with a big question mark over Mitch.
