    AB de Villiers ahead of Trott IMO.

    Reckon no one would have predicted Southee to be in there pre-WC. Everyone else (including RTD to some extent) was never really going to stretch anyones imagination.

    Not sure about Jonathan Trott either. Not the most fashionable of players, especially in ODIs, which quite often leads to his contribution being undervalued.

    Yeah, played well in Australia for damn sure, but still think a lot of people would have expected an Amla, for example, to outperform him.

    But if we have to include other players - I'd have to go with

    T. Dilshan
    S. Tendulkar
    K. Sangakkara (k)
    A. De Villiers
    Y. Singh
    R. ten Doeschate
    S. Afridi
    R, Peterson
    T. Southee
    Z. Khan
    I. Tahir

    Plethora of bowling options (5 bpnafide spinning options and 3 pacers) and whilst batting looks a little light, I'd expect this team to defend most totals based on their WC form.

    Not much between these teams, seems to be a consensus over about 15 or so players. Two to have been overlooked so far would be Brett Lee and Ross Taylor.

    Dilshan
    Tendulkar
    Trott
    Sangakkara
    Jayawardene
    Yuvraj
    Ten Doeschate
    Afridi
    Malinga
    Zaheer
    Tahir

    De Villiers
    Taylor
    Lee
    Southee
    Peterson
    And we still haven't walked in the glow of each other's majestic presence.

    ICC team has been announced. Some questionable selctions to say the least.

    Tendulkar
    Dilshan
    Sangakkara ( Wk /Capt )
    Jayawardena
    De Villiers
    Yuvraj
    Watson
    Afridi
    Steyn
    Zaheer
    Murali

    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.
