All time ODI XI

I'll definitely allow it because you know I love Abbas, but you're still a hipster for it.

You also admitted the other day that you deliberately like to create teams that struggle to cobble together ten overs for the fifth bowler because that's what ODIs are to you. I smiled when I read it because like, I totally agree as a nerdy kid who was obsessed with the Mercantile Mutual Cup (Aus 50 overs domestic for those who don't know), but I think it may reveal your bias if you want to bat Dhoni at 7 and get 10 out of Watson/Sachin/Viv to fit Abbas in.
Abbas with 60 odd games can't be in the XI.

Babar S/R is pretty meh compared to Abbas

Plus he never played an innings like this
Not comparing them, point is you need at least enough matches to have your success verified. Garner barely makes it at nearly 100 matches.

But 60 games is really too little to justify in an ATG XI. Maybe an Asian ATG XI ok, but you are comparing him to players who have hundreds of games under their belt. Abbas basically scored all the centuries in his career in a two year period.

why does CW always soak 30 pages up when the topic of AT ODI XIs is raised. Thankfully it's the highest-quality discussion, always and forever. :ph34r:

they still aren’t a patch on the riveting content discussion that is a slippy comparison thread
