    CW's greatest ODI team of all time

    Bit of discussion around this on different levels at the moment, so though we could do something along these lines:

    Select your 3 greatest ODI XIs of all time. Your 1st XI, 2nd XI and 3rd XI.

    Anyone selected in your first XI will receive 3 votes at the end. 2nd XI players will receive 2 and 3rd XI players will receive 1 vote. At the end we'll tally and present a balanced XI, based on the votes plus discussion as required.

    * please keep in mind that your XIs need five bowlers, plus a keeper.

    Tend to think that two quality bowling allrounders at No.7 and No.8 is stronger overall than having a specialist batsman at No.7 and 2 part-time bowlers.

    Is Greenidge generally considered superior to Haynes in ODIs?

    How good an all rounder SWaugh was in ODIs early in his career has been forgotten a bit. Was a noted death bowler.

    1st XI

    Sachin Tendulkar
    Shane Watson
    Ricky Ponting
    Viv Richards
    AB DeVilliers
    Andrew Symonds
    MS Dhoni +
    Wasim Akram
    Joel Garner
    Muttiah Muralitharan
    Glenn McGrath

    I'm basing this as an 1st XI I think is most likely to win, rather than picking the out and out best specialists. Having Watson and Symonds in the top 6 and also sharing the fifth bowling duties gives me heaps of leeway to select the best fielders available. Ponting, Richards, DeVilliers and Symonds will form a potent inner circle fielding combo. Dhoni at 7 and Wasim at 8 give the batting ample depth, and the thought of McGrath and Garner opening the bowling is tantalising. Tendulkar at the top provides the glue, and Watson, Ponting, Richards, DeVilliers and Symonds are a brutal middle order.

    2nd XI

    Adam Gilchrist +
    Hashim Amla
    Dean Jones
    Virat Kohli
    Brian Lara
    Mike Hussey
    Kapil Dev
    Shane Warne
    Brett Lee
    Allan Donald
    Waqar Younis

    3rd XI

    Mark Waugh
    Sanath Jayasuriya
    Kumar Sangakkara +
    Zaheer Abbas
    Javed Miandad
    Michael Bevan
    Andrew Flintoff
    Lance Klusener
    Dan Vettori
    Shaun Pollock
    Shane Bond

    Absolutely You have probably seen me asserting that before. Greenidge IMO is second best ODI opener after Tendulkar, ahead of not just Haynes but also Anwar, Hyaden, Ganguly, M. Waugh etc.

    Agree ftr.
