    Bill O'Riley.

    That extra few km/hr / flater trajectories are amazing in ODIs (He's also the best valid spinner (IMO)).

    Enjoying reading this thread, particularly the explanations behind the picks. Good work.

    Very nice pick. Always thought that having the ability to turn the ball both ways is one of the crucial aspects in becoming an ODI spinner, hence why Murali & Saqlain are generally regarded as better than Warne.

    Would have been my spinner, had he lasted.

    I was tempted to first pick him. I think my other pick (Hammond) would have lasted so it wouldn't have mattered.

    As I'm less creative with my picks and just pick the best players available, Jack Hobbs.

    Okay then I'll go with the best available oneday spinner in my opinion in the form of the foxy miserly Clarrie Grimmett. Hell with his accuracy, subtle variety and street smarts he might even be used as a death bowler depending on the remaining bowlers I get in this draft

    Alan Davidson. Perfect bowler for the OD format. Economical and being a left armer adds nice variety. More than handy lower order bat as well.

    Great pick, but Davo's wicket-taking ability should not be overlooked, either. Deadly accurate, sure, but not just there for control. Probably the best pure bowler pick so far
