Ah, OK - someone edit the thread title then please?
How did Ten Doeschate make it?:@

He is also a name that stands out from the 2007 WC and someone that made a large contribution to the Tournament far over and above proportional to the games he played or the victories his team had.
I can understand why others would disagree though, but IMO there was no other exceptional candidate that demanded to take the place over him :)
Great article - disgrace that RTD is in at 7 ahead of Shane Watson :p. RTD was very good, and being made 12th man would have been fair recognition of his efforts, but Watto was clearly a better performer for mine, especially in the number 7 role.
Bond stiffest for mine.
RtD impacted games more with the bat and was certainly more valuable to his side than Watson was to Australia
Aus already has half the players in the side (inc 12th man), no need to get greedy and want Watson in there as well :tongue:
Would point out that Watson barely got the chance to bat, and when he did, got little or no time at the crease.
I would have Jayasuria in, IMO
