    Let's just say the names were player a,b,c.
    I agree that Imran's stats are the worst out of the three. High number of not-outs inflate average, and SR is below Kapil and Pollock.

    Plus, Klusener can't play spin? Utter tripe.

    As I've always said, we should've had Lara opening with Tendulkar, and should've picked Dhoni as the wicketkeeper.
    "I want to raise my hand and say one thing. Those who complain about my love for the game or commitment to the game are clueless. These are the only 2 areas where I give myself 100 out of 100."
    - Sachin Tendulkar, as told in an interview published in Bengali newspaper Anandabazar Patrika after his 100th International century (translated by weldone)

    I second that wholeheartedly. My XI goes like this:

    Lara | Tendulkar | Viv | Ponting | AB | Dhoni +| Klusener | Wasim | Warne | Garner | Murali |

    You obviously didn't watch the video harsh, because if you did you'd see Klusener clueless against Warne et al.

    The title is sarcastic because everyone knows he picked Warne about as 'well' as Daryl Cullinan.

    The team already selected makes it difficult to pick Klusener at 7 due to the lack of other bowling options. Lara at 5 was a big mistake imo. Anyway I'll go with the following two as they probably make the most sense balance wise:

    Michael Bevan
    Imran Khan

    He's a hell of a lot closer to that then Gilchrist is to being a top rank opening batsman.

    bevan and Imran for balance
    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

    With the benefit of hindsight, I reckon we should have gone with the following:

    01. Sanath Jayasuriya
    02. Sachin Tendulkar
    03. Viv Richards
    04. Dean Jones
    05. Andrew Symonds
    06. MS Dhoni+
    07. Lance Klusener
    08. Shaun Pollock
    09. Wasim Akram
    10. Joel Garner
    11. Muralitharan

    10. Joel Garner

    That's a good side balance-wise even if you replace Jones and Symonds there with batsman ABC and batsman XYZ respectively.
