An interesting discussion opened up recently in 'The ATG ODI World XIs Game' thread regarding the relative merits of Kapil Dev and Imran Khan.
And so after the discussion I was wondering what the general concensus might be with respect to rating the great 'Bowling Allrounders' in the ODI format. Namely;
01. Ian Botham
02. Kapil Dev
03. Richard Hadlee
04. Imran Khan
05. Keith Miller
06. Mike Procter
My Question is:
Who is most likely to perform the best in a 50 over ODI World Cup Final?
The Parameters are:
They would bat in the No.7 position, and bowl 10 overs. Both opposing teams are 'Gold Tier', or close to it.
I have included Keith Miller because Jager will get upset if I don't, and who knows, Miller may get man-of-the-match anyway. Mike Procter didn't play any ODIs, but he played enough limited over matches in County cricket to give a reasonable idea of his talents. And so I have included him also.
