Rest of the world will kill Australia. Easy. I'm pissed off Gayle was left out. Hopefully he gets a show in the second match. I'd have Gayle in ahead of Sehwag due to the fact that Gayle can score faster.

Leaning on a comfortable win for Rest of the World,Series maybe 2-1 R-O-W!!! :eek:
Yeah i dont mind Gayle but wouldnt be that pissed of mate Sehwag is just a lethal IMO!!!!Would like to compare strike rates if you disagree,i love watching Sehwag play myself,the fact that Gayle can score faster :confused: !!!Seems to be too much talent and depth on the visiting side!!!

Chris Gayle

Matches: 121
Innings: 118
No: 6
Runs: 4362
HS: 153*
Average: 38.94
Strike Rate: 78.79
100's: 11
50's: 23
4's: 513
6's: 58
Catches: 54

Virender Sehwag

Matches: 125
Innings: 122
No: 6
Runs: 3728
HS: 130
Average: 32.13
Strike Rate: 95.81
100's: 7
50's: 18
4's: 516
6's: 55
Catches: 50

Gayle's played less matches, scored more runs. He has a better average but Sehwag has the better strike rate. Sehwag has 18 50's compared to Gayle's 23 and 7 100's compared to Gayle's 11.

Goes to show that Sehwag can't consolodate on starts. He can hit the ball, but he gets out more before 50 than what Gayle does. Gayle's averages shows that in ODI's he can hang around at the crease whilst score runs on a consistent basis.

It's IMO, that based on these results, Chris Gayle deserves to be in the team due to the fact that the only thing Sehwag has on Gayle is strike rate.

Gayle all the way!

Actually i thought Gayle was on the team was talkin to a few mates last nite also talked about Ntini aswell!!!!!back to the subject if you want to use stats then how can you compare say who has the most opportunities or say has to performed of recent times!!!India there line up is rock solid and has been for awhile while Windies went through the bad patch and i would say Gayle would ve had alot of chances to perform then!!!But cant argue wit both players special talents,somebody got to miss out!!Chris Cairns would be another unlucky omission!!! :rolleyes: :wavey:

I'm joining you on it. Despite the ROW team being stronger, the Aussies are wounded from the Ashes and will be desperate to prove they're still the no.1 team. ROW team is very impressive, but I get the feeling they're not too bothered about it and will probably showboat a little bit. Flintoff and Pieterson are both still drunk from celebrating the Ashes as well.

End of the day, I have my doubts whether 11 superstars will be able to gel as a team in such a short time

I feel Aussies will pinch Game 1. Also one dayers is such a hit and miss game that the winner is not necessarily the more talented team.

No, I did not say that because Sehwag got 6 that Gayle is better. I said Gayle was better before this match even started. I was just stating that Sehwag didn't perform which means Gayle has a high chance of taking his spot on Friday.

Doesn't matter about Lara. His position is safe. Sehwag's isn't because he has another opener to contend with, Gayle. Sehwag got 6, so they will more than likely give Gayle a run on Friday. They'll give Gayle a run in anycase same with Ntini eventually and Gayle's run should come Friday.

Chris Gayle is in for the ROW in replace of Afridi. Should have taken out Kallis instead.

Personally, I think Kallis will be subbed out.

You'll need it. Your bet isn't on runs it's on performance points. :lol:

Points are scored as follows: 1pt per run, 20 pts per wicket, 10 pts per catch and 25 pts per stumping. With Aussie sportsbooks, Brett will also earn 50 points everytime he yells f*** off you pommie b******

So Brett only needs to hold a catch and take a couple of wickets and your bet is a loser. At least he's not looking like getting a a bat though.

why did you all back ROW?

these guys couldn't give a toss about this pointless series - whereas for the aussies, its a chance for them to "redeem" themsevles somewhat.

how many kids grow up saying "when I grow up, I wanna play cricket for the ROW"?

its just like pre-season AFL and NFL, players dont intentionally say "I'm going to play crap today", but because there is no real incentive to perform well - they simply don't. look at Indiannpolis's performance in the pre-season, or similarly look at Carlton in the AFL. The ROW isn't a proper team, and they dont see themselves as one either - end result, they are far less likely to win than Australia.

if you like, simply refer to the old adage - "a champion team will beat a team of champions".

these ROW players are collecting a nice paycheque, but they couldnt really care less if they don't win a game - who will be blamed? no one, because nobody cares...

Pollock has no idea. Gayle should have been on and Gayle should have been bowling.

If Gayle doesn't open the batting, the World XI may aswell not bat. Gayle will get them off to a major awesome start and that's what they need. Time will tell. Open with Sangakkara and Sehwag and you're right Jim, they don't give a toss.

on paper they look good, but in their heads I'm sure they don't really consider themselves a team - its more of a paid holiday.

a team isn't just a squad of 12+ players - its a group of people who spend a lot of time together, know each other well, and work day in day out for a common goal - could you say that about ROW?

Glad Kallis got out. He'll be out for Afridi on Sunday.

Gayle and Sangakarra have set it up. Just up to the rest to score a run a ball and the occasional boundry and they're fine.

Up to Dravid and Flintoff to keep their wickets and stay ahead.

Bolar Bolabi
10-07-2005, 01:02 PM
They picked this team on reputation and not on form.

Ideally, Lara shouldn't be in the team, neither should Kallis. Has Pollock done much this year?

IMO, Lara shouldn't be in the test team, Chanderpaul should instead. Chanderpaul has been a consistent test batter all year and should take Lara's test spot.

This team is losing, not because they don't give a crap, by their reactions, they do care. It's just their out of form reputation players whom are going to be destroyed on Sunday and the test match will be over in 5 days IMO. Australia will rip them a new one in Sydney next week.

I havn't seen the test team, but I assume it's picked on reputation too? I think Australia is the bet to place next week or the draw.

Shane Bond should have found a place in this one day team. Sure he's coming back from injury, but he's taken a lot of wickets for NZ lately. He's in form.

Gayle and Sangakarra got this team off to a flyer. It was the out of form middle order whom stuffed things up. Lara hasn't played a match since May. Even selecting Tendulkar would have been a mistake.

IMO, the test team should read.

1. Graeme Smith
2. Virender Sehwag
3. Rahul Dravid
4. Inzamam Ul Haq
5. Shivnarine Chanderpaul
6. Andrew Flintoff
7. Kumar Sangakkara

Note: He was our leading run scorer.
Note: It was on Sri Lankan dustbowls.

In the 2 series they played.

Chanderpaul - 723 runs
Lara - 724 runs

Chanderpaul did however dominate and was more consistent in all our test matches.

Based on this and based on the fact that Lara hasn't played a test sine June and Chanderpaul has, I'd have Chanderpaul in the team ahead of Lara.

You can't seperate the two. But Chanderpaul has been more consistent than Lara - I should know as I follow West Indies cricket closely whereas you don't. And as Chanderpaul has played a series in July, he gets the nod ahead of Lara for me.

You said Lara has been better all round....I can't see Lara's name in the test team that toured Sri Lanka. When they were together, it was an even contest with Chanderpaul being the more consistent one. Lara didn't play the series of Sri Lanka, Chanderpaul did. Chanderpaul should be ahead of Lara purely because Chanderpaul is the form batsman.

If Lara played the series of Sri Lanka, yes I'd have him in ahead of Chanderpaul. But as he didn't, Chanderpaul is the one who should get the nod.

Looking at things, all things considered, Chanderpaul is one of the most consistent batsman all round this year.

Chanderpaul is stiff not to be in the test team. Very stiff.

He has scored 877 runs this year in 8 test matches.

Chanderpaul is sitting 4th with most runs this year, yet he isn't in the test team. Watch Chanderpaul finish the year with most test runs. He is going to shine in Australia in November.

If Chanderpaul shouldn't be in ahead of Lara, he should be in ahead of Dravid.

And to further prove my argument, he should be in the one day side too.

He has played 17 one dayers this year for 650 runs and a highest score of 85 with an average of 43

Dravid - 18 one dayers for 636 runs and a highest score of 104 with an average of 39

Afridi - 21 one dayers for 555 runs and a highest score of 102 with an average of 29

Kallis - 15 one dayers for 423 runs and a highest score of 87 with an average of 30.

He should at least be in the one day side ahead of Kallis.

Chanderpaul is stiff and a very underrated player and I can't wait till November when he shines. He should be in both teams for the world XI. :mad:

Unbelievable. As BG will testify, I back Gilko to top score in every ODI Australia play, I love the guy. However, my intelligent self decided to pass on today's match for the first time in about 20 games. So obvious :rolleyes:

A champion team will always beat a team of champions, and we could easily see another empty performance from the World XI. Australia are the ones with something to prove.

Australia to win the 2nd match at even money :)

C'monnnnnnnn :cool:

World XI - Most Wickets

Any other player @ $15

So in other words, Chris Gayle to get the most wickets for the World XI

This is Gambling on Pollock using him, especially at the death.

ROW is going to be destroyed in the test match. It will probably be over within 4 days. There's only 3 changes to that pitiful side and the out of formers are the ones staying. Hahaha.
