    3 Spin All-Rounders for ODI

    Many similarities between these 3 spin ODI All-Rounders.
    They could open an innings.
    They were devastating in their batting abilities.
    They could captain a side.
    And they could bowl spin, 3 different types ( OB, SLA, LBG)

    Which of these was the greater ODI player ?

    Think that Afridi has ended up being better value to his side when not opening.

    Probably Jayasuriya is a better player, exacerbated by how long he was at the top for, but personal, unmitigated bias means that I'm voting for Chris Gayle.

    Not sure how this is a no contest to be honest.J ayasuriya averages 32 in ODI cricket while Gayle averages nearly 40. Their bowling records are almost identical. Jayasuriya for me is one of the most overrated players going around on this forum. Above average at best, but his reputation is inflated for the impact that he had in the 96 world cup. Maybe we should start hyping up Geoff Allott while we're at it.
    Tendulkar = the most overated player EVER!!
    Beckham = the most overated footballer EVER!!
    Vassell = the biggest disgrace since rikki clarke!!

    Jayasuriya can never be over rated by Indians. The scars are that bad.

    I'd rather have Gayle play against us than Jayasuriya. Matara Marauder was that destructive.

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

    So fielding and captaincy are non-issues? On and off field behavior if you want to add some more.
