    Andrew Symonds or Glenn Maxwell?

    In an ATG Aust ODI team? They have similarities. Aggressive batsmen who can quickly take a game away, absolutely elite fielders, and more than handy with the ball.

    How is Maxwell anywhere close to making an ATG ODI XI for Australia right now?

    Yeah I'm not saying Maxwell can't form a case eventually, but this makes scarcely more sense than pondering over whether Jake Doran should be rated ahead of Arthur Morris. Maxwell's international career has barely started.

    Jake Doran is way better. Players that long ago were so **** by modern standards.
    The sort of general malaise that only the genius possess and the insane lament.

    Symonds for now. He will probably make an Aussie all time odi side.

    I think we did one a year or so back. IIRC it went something like:

    1. Gilchrist
    2. Waugh
    3. Ponting
    4. Jones
    5. Hussey
    6. Bevan
    7. Symonds
    8. Warne
    9. Lee
    10. Lillee
    11. McGrath

    Maxwell definitely hasn't done enough to force his way into that side

    Neither Watson by a mile. Maxwell will never pass him either because his bowling is way too weak.

    Think Symonds showed up when it mattered quite a bit more compared to Watto. Otherwise, they are close.

    Watsons bowling makes it easy Symonds bowling was just part timer material. Watson was a legit bowler in his prime. Maybe Faulkner could get there not Maxwell.

    I'm biased since i've always had a ranging stiff for Batswell but I choose him over Roy.

    Symonds was pure strength, Maxwell pure GOAT

    Watson pretty much won the 2009 champions trophy by himself what did Roy ever do that was more important? Can't recall ever?

    Had a huge influence in the 2003 World Cup.

    Personally though I'd find room for both of them. 6 bowlers in ODI's is important, despite Watto being inferior as an opener to Junior or Hayden.
