Whoop yeah, its time to pick the rest of the team.
We are almost there. Its time to fit in 2 spinners. And we will wrap up with 2 more quicks.
So vote for the two best spinners in ODI history.
(We are picking a greatest ODI XI based on votes)
The XI so far.
Vote here. on the left hand panel!
Oh dear – one vote with commonsense – and one with lust….
Madness that hardly anyone’s voting for Saqlain – great average, great strike rate (both better than Warne’s and Murali’s) and two hat-tricks – what more does he need to do?
Ceci> Which ones the one with lust ?
Dave>I know Saqlain was gun when he played. Original doosra boy!
No Sachin and Saurav in here ? Is that a joke or is this non Indian greatest ODI whatever whatever 🙂
Dont blame me, Blame the voters!
Are all voters non Indians ? Thank god i dont see a Kalu or Saeed Anwar here 😛
My XI would be
Sanath Jayasuriya, Adam Gilchrist, Viv Richards, Sachin Tendulkar, Ricky Ponting, Michael Bevan, Imran Khan, Shaun Pollock, Muralitharan, Joel Garner, Glenn McGrath
six bowlers, and eight top order batsmen, will take on the martians very well.

In fact Saqlain was getting poorer as his career progressed. When Indians and Lankans got to know his doosra, he was manhandled by players like Ganguly, Sachin, de Silva and Ranatunga. Not to mention Jayasuriya as well. Warne and Murali on other hand kept their best performances at a length easily longer than Saqlains entire career. For me Murali > (Warne = Saqlain) in ODIs.
