    What about Flintoff on current form?

    Get him cheaply and the tail is quite exposed...
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    Chanderpaul? His highest score is 140odd. Lara's crossed 200 more times than any other player bar Bradman.
    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    IMO:

    Australia: Hayden/Ponting/Gilchrist
    Ind: Sachin (Dravid is second although if the other team is Australia, Laxman is the man)
    NZ: Richardson
    WI: Lara
    SA: Kallis - by a mile
    Pak: Inzy or Yousuf
    Eng: Hard one. In his prime, Thorpe. Nowadays, Vaughan, maybe Flintoff.

    The color of immortality, nature and envy - you are truly a unique person. While clearly the color of nature, you also symbolize rebirth, fertility and hope in the world. On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!

    Sri Lanka - Kumar Sangakkara, Sanath Jayasuriya

    Doesn't naming entire top orders (or even two players) kinda defeat the purpose of the exercise?

    For me:

    Australia: Hayden
    Pakistan: Inzamam
    India: Dravid (Laxman vs Australia)
    WI: Lara
    SL: Jayasuriya
    NZ: Fleming
    SA: Kallis (was completely Kirsten before his retirement)
    ENG: Thorpe

    Yeah your probably right, but out of Ponting, Hayden, Gilchrist and Martyn seriously who's the danger man?

    They all are!

    It was difficult for me to pinpoint just one individual from strong batting lineups.

    I'll try again then,

    Australia: Ponting
    India: Tendulkar
    WI: Lara
    Pakistan: Inzamam
    SL: Jayasuriya
    NZ: Richardson
    SA: Kallis
    ENG: Thorpe
    ZIM: Vermeulen
