    went with Anwar and Tendulkar
    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta

    very very tempted to choose sanath jayasuriya or shane watson to go in with tendulkar. in the end, i decided to never ever select a team without adam gilchrist and chose him to partner sachin.

    Went with Jayasuriya over Gilchrist. Not sure I can justify leaving Gilly out of the XI altogether but for now I'll run with it
    Every 5 years we have an election and have to decide who are the least obnoxious out of all the men. Then one gets in and they age really quickly. Which is always fun to watch.

    Gilchrist and Sachin.

    Has been my opening all-time XI odi combo since I started making them and nothing has changed since for me. Would have been cool to see them both play in the Ipl together tile we saw Sachin and Jayasuriya open together.

    Sachin and Gilchrist. Ideally though the WK should be picked first.
    5-0

    RIP Craig Walsh (Craig) 1985-2012

    Proudly supporting the #2 cricketer of all time.

    Tendulkar the obvious choice for his own era's XI.

    Couldn't help myself but vote for Nick Knight.

    Don't see why Gilly would be a chance at the 6 or 7 position, he rarely batted there. Looks like he'll partner Tendulkar anyway.

    Pretty happy to see Mark Waugh get a few votes, brilliant opening bat.
