    We should've had one pre WC just to compare

    With 3 Asian Teams in the semis, how about an Asian WC XI vs Rest WC XI ?
    Which would be the stronger team ?

    Asian WC XI

    1. Dilshan
    2. Tendulkar
    3. Sehwag
    4. Sangakara (vc)
    5. Mahela
    6. Yuvraj
    7. Afridi (c)
    8. Zaheer
    9. Malinga
    10. Gul
    11. Murali

    Well if it's on performances in this World cup, the Asians would do it because they've won more matches for their team. If it's just a hypothetical ODI, it'd depend a lot on where it is.

    Nonetheless, I'd say:

    Strauss
    Amla
    Trott
    Taylor
    De Villiers
    Watson
    Ten Doeschate
    Lee
    Steyn
    Southee
    Tahir

    Would say it's pretty close, but for the openers.
    I'm always suspicious of shops that sell bait.

    Dilshan
    Sachin
    Trott
    Mahela
    ABD
    Yuvi
    MSD (+) (*)
    Afridi
    Southee
    Malinga
    Zak



    Picked MSD over Sanga, as I feel his captaincy and field settings played a crucial role in India's victory, along with how he shuffled the bowlers. He also showed himself to be a man for pressure situations, his innings will go down as one of the all-time great captain's innings. Gotta respect that.
    Trott over Sanga at 3 as he was more consistent. ABDV over Sanga because MSD has the gloves, and ABDV is more electric in the field. Plus, can bat lower in the order and give it that fire power.

    Bowling attack more or less picks itself. 3 seamers, Afridi + Yuvi + Dilshan for spin.

    Considering SC conditions, Peterson ahead of Lee I reckon. Watson gives you the third seam option.

    12th: Southee

    Steyn and Murali had a couple of excellent spells but were nowhere near their best, I'd have rated Malinga, Southee, Lee, Tahir and Peterson's performances higher. Moving Watson out of position only to supplant Ten Doeschate or another batsman has to be the weirdest call.
    would take afridi in pace of murali..rest ok for me
    Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.

    Steyn had an excellent WC on a personal level, and he is one guy on that SA team you certainly cannot accuse of lacking bottle. Felt sorry for him, Amla and ABdeV when SA went out. Silenced the doubters who said he is a mediocre ODI bowler.
