U19 12th Man
Have to go with Jacque Khallis as well. Where's Wally..I mean Flintoff ?

Special Mention to Ian Harvey !!!

Andy Giles (who is he) :p
Darren lehmann and Sachin Tendulkar are not really all rounders, darren also just got dropped by the Aussies. Where is Oram, Flintoff and Bravo not a very good pool mate. 8-)

Anyway i would say Flintoff in ODIs, his current from has been amazing, but i think Kallis is a better all rounder overall, but Smith hasn't used him well in ODIs or Test since he got the captanicy.


U19 12th Man
I reckon, everyweek there is a thread like this out. Who is the best batsman, Best XI, Best bowler....And don't get me started on the INDIAN squad naming.

Is there any point to these threads?

Kallis' bowling is not good enough to call him an All Rounder any more IMO - unpenetrative.
Yes Marc but if they can include Sachin ....

It was clearly designed to inflame Flintoff supporters.

I will vote for Mohammad Rafique
I have already voted for Sachin :p

I suppose if he is good enough to make the list then he must be given at least one vote :sleep:

The missing all rounders
1. Flintoff
2. Pollock
3. Sehwag
4. Rafique (why not)
5. Vaas (his batting is better than Sachins bowling , no :p )
6. Nicky Boje - is he not an all rounder if Giles is one ?
7. Ganguly (Even 5 fors in ODI's)

Remind me if I missed some :sleep:


International Vice-Captain
I decided to vote for "Andy" Giles. Unproper polls call for unproper votes.


U19 12th Man
I think Afridi at the moment is the best all-rounder, his bowling is really good now, to the point where you can expect his analysis to be something like
10-1-44-2 which is phenomenal considering the current state of pitches in ODIs. On the batting side, you can expect a 30 off of 15 balls as well. He's perfect at #8: he's not expected to build an innings, and he can be the firecracker you need. After all, if you're depending on your #8 to save you, you're in a lot of trouble no matter who you are.
