Ryan ten Doeschate - A Legend in the Making
Sangakarra is a very good ODI batsman. He may not be showing it thus far, but then again neither has Sarwan. I'd easily rate him alongside Chanders and Sarwan.

Sarwan should bat at 5, with Lara at 3. Sarwan is at his best when he's forced to bat in the middle overs. He used to be one of the best closers in the game, if not the best.
Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? 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."
I don't think the West Indies were ever really as good as some people made them out to be.
I mean they're ranked pretty low for a reason and that's beacuse they're a very blow hot blow cold side with blowing cold being more like the norm.
They were reasonably impressive in the CT 2006, but were well beaten by Australia and Sri Lanka. THey were well beaten on tours to Pakistan and India ....even at home, they scraped a win over India last year and were hammered by RSA and Pakistan the year before.
And yet they were talked up as potential title winners......their current predicament doesn't surprise me in the slightest, beacuse I think their two decent performances in CT 2004 and CT 2006 gave them and others who backed them a false impression of their strength.
WI didn't look behind those results to see that they were still well off the pace off the top teams.
THE CT by itself is not a great gauge of how good a team is beacuse it is a knockout tourney......
