Just went off the top of my head tbh. Didn't think of him.

Could replace either opener and I'd be happy.

Those are the only ones who got at least one vote at #1 rank. Fewer than I would have thought. Because Brandman did not play ODI cricket, there several players who have a claim to be considered the greatest ODI player ever. Interesting that Wasim Akram ranked #2 overall has not been ranked at #1 by anyone!!

Is that what you call Sachin coz of his multiple endorsement deals? :p

You can be sure there was a lot of voters who jigged this voting. There was tactical omission of Sachin involved in one or two top 25s I am sure, same with Murali. That allows Wasim to get in, I feel as he might have been on everyone's list.
