    The problem here was that I was happy with the top ten, then it all got very "okay, I could put this guy anywhere between 24 and 38" - and I found about 30 who fitted that description. I don't see anyone outside that 50 making my final 40.

    Still not pleased with stupid Liam giving me stupid Pakistan.

    Feel free to have a go if i've made any glaring omissions...
    If Luke Wright or James Tredwell get anywhere near the World Cup we could well lose to Zimbabwe or Kenya...
    I find it hard to believe Afzaal and Ealham are so far down the list, below rubbish like Mahmood, Plunkett, Harrison, Sidebottom, etc.
    I also can't see Hoggard getting anywhere near ODIs again and quite rightly.
    That Collingwood, Vaughan and Strauss are so high up says it all, really.

    I simply don't see what the point in picking as many as 40 is... as demonstrated by the fact that the like of Harrison, Wright, Tredwell, etc. are in an England one.
    Even 30 would be pushing it - 25 would be a better number.

    Liam gave you Sri Lanka though. He gave Harry stupid Pakistan.

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."

    Considering that they're feature articles, yes, they do.

    Yes, but you can get away with it, you won't get banned for making a pretty-innocent comment that gets blown out of proportion by your own carelessness in not making it clear what you meant!!!!!!

    Most of it was done on last year's OD averages...=/
    tbh i thought Ealham was well past it....

    Collingwood is a fairly average batter...a fairly average bowler...but his fielding puts him in almost alone

    No-one can ever be selected for fielding, it's just a side-consideration.
    IMO Collingwood is below average in batting and bowling and is extremely lucky to still be in the picture for ODIs.

    39 year old Trevor Penney....picked as a subsitute fielder in the Ashes purely for his fielding....(but that's a completely different situation in all fairness)
    Arguably though he only got picked for warks. so long because of his fielding....
