    Yes, what PEWS said...

    Klusener was a good bowler - but I won't back him to consistently bowl 10 overs in every match regardless of conditions opposition etc, especially at this level. Klusener would do well with an established 6th bowler like Jayasuriya.

    Have absolutely no problem with Kapil, and to a lesser extent Flintoff bowling 10 overs every match...
    Yes weldone, that would be a superb bowling attack.

    But I just want to go back to Imran Khan for a minute. The suggestion by some that he doesn't deserve to be in the first XI is inaccurate.

    His figures are;

    Wickets = 182
    Average = 26.61
    Strike Rate = 40.9
    Economy Rate = 3.89
    (Joel 'The Benchmark' Garner = 3.09 runs per over)

    Any Economy Rate that is under 4 runs an over is excellent, and brilliant for a 5th bowler who is not expected to take wickets because that is the job of the opening bowlers. Incidently, 3.89 runs is exactly the same stat as Wasim Akram !

    Also, it is generally accepted that Imran is the best batsman out of all the 'great allrounders'. He is therefore the perfect No.7 IMO. Especially when there is no tail to speak of.

    Gilchrist is already in the first 11 isn't he? Or does it change that he's not opening?

    Dhoni
    Warne and Lee

    I'm happy with Pollock, Lee, Hadlee, Warne and Saqlain behind a powerful top 6.

    Whatever happens, I'll be disappointed if a quick strike bowler doesn't get selected to compliment Hadlee and Pollock.

    EDIT: I also think it's a classy 5 bowlers. Currently the top 3 don't bowl so Im reluctant to weaken the batting at 4 and 5 by picking someone worse who can bowl a couple of overs that might e required if you include an all rounder possibly.

    Sanga isn't the best off spinner in the history of cricket? News to me.

    I am not a mind reader, a neither am I a clairvoyant. Also, I'm too lazy to second guess, or 'read between the lines'.

    So, when making a statement SobersNo.1 you have little choice but to try and be a little more coherent, or I'm going to ignore you and move on to read something from someone that either makes sense, or is at least funny.
