    this is a tough one
    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

    Dean Jones assuming this was his natural position. Even otherwise deserves an honorary vote.

    Ponting. Don't see how it can be anyone else frankly. Only SRT has more ODI hundreds and Ponting has made almost all of them at number three.

    I vote for Lara here - in protest of him being excluded from the opener's poll.

    without my (admittedly somewhat unconventional) lineup options, Ponting is definitely the best number 3.

    still can't believe Gilchrist will be opening an ATG team. wtf.

    Given he'll most likely be keeping, is it really that ridiculous?
