    Zaheer's SR of 59.7 is first-class. It's unfortunate that his Average and Economy Rate are not.

    Incidently;
    Bedi's SR = 80.3
    Kumble's SR = 65.9
    Chandra's SR = 65.9

    (a nice coincidence there)

    interesting. I would've assumed Kumble would have a worse strike rate.

    still, I'd prefer Bedi and Kumble over Zaheer.

    I was tempted to put Zaheer in over Srinath.

    Dev, Srinath, and Kumble
    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

    Kapil
    Nissar
    Bedi

    BTW, would be a bit of a joke if Zaheer got in cos all the votes for the spinners got split across five contenders...

    I agree. Many of those who voted for Zaheer probably would in all likelihood prefer 2 spinners and 2 pacers to 3 pacers and a lone spinner, even if it meant Zaheer didn't make the list.

    I'd prefer the Indian line up to have at least two quicks.

    Kapil is the first quick chosen, and I don't see much difference between Srinath and Khan, but Khan is a left armer and gives some variety.

    India's inability to have produced a couple of world class pacemen is staggering. Khan and Srinath's records are similar to someone like Mitchell Johnson or Merv Hughes, decent bowlers but hardly world class. Yet, I still think a team needs at least two quicks.

    FTR, I think my team would look something like this....

    - Gavaskar
    - Engineer (+)
    - Dravid
    - Tendulkar
    - Hazare
    - Laxman
    - Kapil Dev(*)
    - Kumble
    - Khan
    - Bedi
    - Chandrasekhar/Prassana

    Having three frontline spinners is a bit ridiculous, but India would only really challenge other teams in spinning conditions, so might as well play to their strengths. Engineer opening allows this, and with Kapil at seven, the team is balanced.

    I think the team's best chance is a massive first innings score, then bowling the opposition out with spin on favourable pitches.

    Sehwag could open, and the team could play with four frontline bowlers, but I think it looks unbalanced that way. Mankad really isn't good enough for consideration as an all rounder.

    Kapil
    Zaheer
    Kumble

    Would prefer an extra spinner over Zaheer for first-change though.

    Here is the currrent score;

    Kapil Dev = 19
    Javagal Srinath = 9
    Anil Kumble = 8

    Bishan Bedi = 5
    Mohammad Nissar = 5
    Zaheer Khan = 4
    Bhagwah Chandrasekhar = 3
    Amar Singh = 2

    It appears that the pre-voting favourites polled the strongest and the predictable happened: Kapil Dev, Javagal Srinath, and Anil Kumble were elected

    It is possible that Bedi or Nissar may gain an extra 4 votes to overtake Kumble, but I doubt it very much.

    I was kind of hoping that we would perform a first and give India a 3-pronged pace attack, or be adventurous and choose a bowler like Chandra. But I guess the general perception is that Anil Kumble is India's greatest spinner and that's all there is to it - fair enough.

    So, unless people want to allow more time for voting I will assume the current batting order to be;

    01. Sunil Gavaskar
    02. Vijay Merchant
    03.
    04.
    05.
    06.
    07. Farokh Engineer
    08. Kapil Dev
    09. Anil Kumble
    10. Javagal Srinath
    11.

    Since I haven't received any requests to keep the voting going I'll assume that Kapil Dev, Javagal Srinath, and Anil Kumble are locked-in as the democratic choices. Therefore......

    Please select 3 batsman to fill positions No.3, No.4, and No.5 in the batting order;

    Rahul Sharad Dravid
    Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar
    Vangipurappu Venkata Sai Laxman
    Gundappa Rangnath Viswanath
    Mansur Ali Khan Pataudi (Nawab of)
    Mohinder Amarnath Bhardwaj
    Pahlan Ratanji Umrigar
    Sourav Chandidas Ganguly
    Mohammad Azharuddin
    Dilip Balwant Vengsarkar
    etc

    More straight-forward??
