    Tough choice IMO, Elisha's filty mouth clinches it for me.

    Kumble hasn't been a wicket-taking ODI bowler for years. Harbhajan hasn't been one for months. Sreesanth has done nothing to suggest that he's a good ODI bowler. Over-rated much?
    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."

    Nahh, lot's of people here on CW are over-rating the Lankans IMO. They are a good side, a good outfit, however, they don't have the fire power and the talent (IMHO) to go on and win the WC.

    I'll, honestly, be surprised if they even make the semis. And you can quote me on that.

    Kumble hasn't been a good economical bowler since 1999, either...

    Its not wise to write off class bowler like Kumble.Harb might have struggled in recent times, but have the ability to deliver the goods on slow tracks of WI.As for Santh, he has been an expensive bowler in OD , but his recent form shows that he is a wkt taking bowler.

    Two legends of India and Pakistan in Abdul Qadir and Kapil Dev have predicted India to win the WC, interestingly Qadir gave his own team Pakistan the least possible chance to even reach the semis!!

    Taking two wickets after crapping 60 runs on an avg. doesn't mean anything. So no Santh's not a good ODI Bowler, neither is Kumble. Harbh, No he is not a wicket taking bowler either.

    I like the Lankans, but they're being talked up a lot, generally by neutrals. Seems the in-thing to do at the moment.

    I'd favour Pakistan out of the 3 sub-continental teams.

    Recent times??

    Since the start of 2002, Anil Kumble has played 55 ODIs, averaged 43.41 and gifted 4.81 runs per over. How many years grace does he get before I can write him off?

    In Sreesanth's last 14 ODI matches (since his 6-for against England last year) he has taken more than one wicket in an innings on 3 occasions. He's taken a total of 15 wickets in that time at an average of 41.13, with a SR of 45podd and an economy of 5.46. What about that indicates that he's a wicket-taking ODI bowler?

    And between 1999\2000 and the end of 2001 he played 36 ODIs (against ODI-standard teams) and averaged 36 and gifted 4.77-an-over.

    Kumble hasn't been a good ODI bowler for a long, LOOOOONG time.
