    I'm the biggest Hayden hater around, but seriously. How can you not include him?

    Jayasuriya is my 5th bowling option alongside Styris while Fleming has been good in the tournament, and has made the side as captain.

    Basically I didn't want Hayden because I don't like him very much.

    If Brumby can include Smith, the not liking criteria doesn't count for much.

    Thing is, I don't mind him. But I prefer Jayasuriya, and Fleming is a Kiwi. We all know three can't go into two.

    I really like Jayasuriya actually, he is one of my favourite sub-continental players.

    Hayden's the front runner for man of the tournament at the moment, it's absurd to leave him out.

    Anyway, I'd go with:

    Hayden
    Jayasuriya
    Ponting
    Kallis
    Styris
    Clarke
    Gilchrist
    Hogg
    Malinga
    Bond
    McGrath

    Most of them pretty much pick themselves at the moment IMO. Smith and Pietersen a little unlucky with the batting, but I don't think any of the others can be left out really. Kallis could miss out for Pietersen, but he's also there as a bowling option. Smith and Jayasuriya is close, Jaya has also bowled pretty decently though.

    The bowlers are cut and dry. Murali will probably work his way in by the end of the tournament, but Hogg's been the best spinner so far. Malinga's dominated, Bond's not bowled badly in any game, and McGrath's the leading wicket taker.
