    OK, I've seen the light, Changing my vote to;

    Michael Bevan
    Imran Khan



    Although I not entirely sure why I would select him over the other two great ODI allrounders - Dev and Pollock. It might have something to do with his 'synergy' with Wasim Akram, and the fact that Imran was a more adaptive and rounded batsman. He could slog like Dev or Pollock, but he could also defend when the need be. As for Klusener - can't play spin (??).

    Kapil Dev at No.7
    Innings: 75
    Ave: 24.17
    NO: 13
    SR: 87.55

    Imran Khan at No.7
    Innings: 26
    Ave: 28.52
    NO: 9
    SR: 81.51

    Shaun Pollock at No.7
    Innings: 81
    Ave: 29.69
    NO: 26
    SR: 88.94

    Question for you Watson.

    Looking at those stats, who do you think performed the worst at number 7? Don't include bowling, fielding, captaining etc. Cheers

    They look about the same to me, despite Imran playing fewer innings because he also batted 5 and 6. Hence my comment - 'not entirely sure'.

    I do feel that Imran and Wasim would combine well when batting together at No.7 and 8 being former team mates. They also bowled well in tandem. But again, that's just a hunch after trying to remember their efforts during the 1992 World Cup etc.

    No there are 2 different things here. You said 'not entirely sure' why you selected him and that's fair enough, my question was just about those raw stats and which was the worst, because for me Imran has the worst out of the 3 and I'm curious I don't think everyone would say the same as me.

    Let's just say the names were player a,b,c.

    I don't see how you can say that Imran's stat's are worse than Dev's or Pollock's as the Averages and Strike Rates are roughly the same. Pollock is ahead slightly, but I've assumed that his matches were less demanding overall - smaller fields etc.

    Maybe I have been biased by Test matches - in that type of cricket Imran is the better batsman by a some distance. And this team needs a good batsman at No.7 for the sake of balance!

    This team is going to look a bit odd with 2 keepers - Gilchrist and Dhoni.

    Surely Dhoni isn't the best ever No.6 batsman? He can't be.

    (No offence to millions of Dhoni fans out there)

    Why?

    I mean Bevan was great - but someone might prefer Dhoni @ #6 because he's more aggressive. Both were amazing finishers though, and choosing one among the two (on batting alone) is tough IMO.

    Now that I look at, there are not many batsman who average over 50 runs in ODI, let alone have a Strike Rate in the 80s as well.

    People picking Dhoni probably want someone aggressive at 6.

    Picking Lara at 5 is majorly ********, btw.

    Because his record there is very average - if you want to pick him pick him in the top 3.

    Fair enough. I'd still pick him there over Bevan etc, and I reckon he'd adapt.
