    "I don't rate him, so he shouldn't be there."

    That's the complete opposite point of the exercise, dumb dumbs. If you want to start a thread with your best ODI team, then go ahead, but this is for the people. DEMOCRACY, BABY.

    I disagree. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion so if that's what happens then suck it up.

    I was surprised to see Andy Roberts make the cut. I had to look up his record when I saw that he was getting votes.

    Also, 3 people voted Jonty Rhodes in 25th spot. He seems like the sort of player that people love and feel a need to throw him into their list because of the impact he had in the field.

    Yeah, Rhodes is perfectly acceptable because of his impact on the modern game.

    I was one of them. Definitely deserves recognition imo. Handy batsman and his fielding and athleticism was genuinely groundbreaking and set a standard which everyone aims for today.

    Don't think Harvey making the list is ridiculous at all. Voting him 2nd all time is hilarious, but hey, democracy. I'd like it if people who made oddball choices would post why though... Can lead to genuine discussion (hopefully) instead of "WHY DIDN'T YOU PICK MY FAVOURITE GARRHH"

    Me mentioning Jonty at 25th was just something I had noticed, perfectly reasonable to pick him there.

    Everytime we run this thing this happens. Half the people want the votes invalidated. Other half wants everyone to shut up. Neither is possible. See Donald Trump.

    I think this is the way it should be, If you are gonna come up with Harvey at 2, might as well explain it. Although something tells me that trolling is not a very good reason.

    Ffs this is not a democratic setup. It's Nuf's thing. If he thinks something is a troll vote, he should not count it. Democracy and Trump in this thread jfc.

    Obvsly Nuf thinks the Harvey vote wasn't trolling.

    Wish I could remember my list.

    I think I had a choice between Sanath and Gayle towards the end - took Sanath due to being worth more in the field, and he was used more with the ball. Think Gayle was under-utilised, and then has had a history of back injuries.

    I was hoping to get Rhodes in, can't remember if I did or not in the end though. First guy I remember hitting a six with the reverse sweep, too.
