    world 11

    i think this team could possibly the best in the world today. they may not be the best 11 in the world but the best i could fit in the world today

    1. mathew hayden
    2. michael vaughen - captain - not the best english batsman but he cna open. picked over justin langer and virender seghwag mainly for his captany
    3. raul dravid
    4.sachin tendalker
    5.bryan lara
    6.jaques kallis
    7. andrew flintoff
    8. adam gilchrist - although kumar sangakara is pushing him
    9. shaun pollock
    10.shane warne - just over murili
    11. sreve harmisson

    i believe this team has the best batting line up but the but the bowling could be a problem. im not sure the bowling of kallis and flintoff r good enough but i wanted them both in. maybe one of theses should make way for another fast bowler or if playing on a turning pitch murili

    How can you not have Murali who is clearly the best bowler in the world by far, and has been for a while now. Tendulkar does not merit a place anymore.

    Murali 19 1049.1 322 2195 149 14.73 7-39 17 6 42.2 2.09

    And Murali played mostly at Old Trafford which is one of the more susceptible pitches to turn in England, and Warne plays predominantly at the Rose Bowl, which usually has its games all over by day 2 with the seamers eating the sides for breakfast on a minefield...

    There are times and places for Warne v Murali, and now isn't one.

    If that is true them why is Shaun Udal outperforming any Lancashire spinner, why is Mascarenhaus the only Hampshire bowler with exceptional figures this season, why have no championship matches finished in 2 days this season, and why have Lancashire played host to some of the least successful spin bowlers of recent years.

    it is certainly easier i think to come up with world class batsmen than bowlers. there r lots of great batsmen to chose from for a world 11. i had to include dravid and tendalker there records r increadible and they r still getting runs

    I agree that maschrenhas has be brilliant and in my opinon should be in the england one day sqaud but warne did win hampshire the match today with 6 wickets.

    None of those are recent years, Udal is getting bowled very, very rarely, and the pitch has improved a lot this season.

    For any argument either way there's a legit counter... why can't you just let it rest that they're both exceptional players, and it's quite easy to rate either above the other.

    And any chance of less text language, please Kenway?

    Yes there is definitely a paucity of top class bowlers these days. There are currently 12 batsmen with a PWC rating above 750, and just 7 bowlers with such a rating. There are only 5 current bowlers in the all-time great category (Murali, McGrath, Pollock, Warne, Kumble), in 1999 there were 10 (Donald, Ambrose, Pollock, Muralitharan, McGrath, Kumble, Waqar, Walsh, Akram, Warne).

    Could the last point possibly be that Messrs Fitton, Yates, Barnett and Keedy are all rubbish?

    Also I note that the last example you give is 1996, which is 8 years ago and before either bowler played CC.

    You have a far less stringent all-time great threshold than most if you include Kumble and ssme of those others.
