    I reckon you really just pick Mathews.

    Being a world class batsman who can bowl is probably more effective than being a hit or miss batsman and hit or miss bowler.

    Ye I agree Mathews is the best player of the 3
    Just stokes' threat with the ball recently has become so important in a format where you have to bowl the other team out

    I wouldn't, you've clearly already suffered some head trauma.

    Yeah, it's Mathews IMO.

    Shakib is stiff not to get a mention at all in the thread so far, and I think he's probably the best Test allrounder in the purest sense of the word, but if you told me I needed to pick someone to bat in the middle order and be the fifth bowler in a Test I'd definitely take Mathews.

    Nah. You should have read the OP. This thread wasn't started by Daemon, there is no excuse.

    Agreed. He's averaged around 34-35 with the ball in the last two years, which is not bad at all considering his consistency with the bat.

    People letting his mediocre captaincy color their opinions of him a bit IMO.

    maxi for odis
    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
