    1.Chris Gayle----------Avg:42.19
    2.Tillakaratne Dilshan--Avg:40.99
    3.Ross Taylor----------Avg:47.22
    4.Graeme Pollock------Avg:60.97
    5.AB de Villiers--------Avg:50.46
    6.Andrew Symonds----Avg:40.61
    7.Adam Gilchrist-------Avg:47.61
    8.Vernon Philander----Avg:25.78
    9.Chaminda Vaas-----Avg:24.32
    10.Merv Hughes-------Avg:16.65
    11.Derek Underwood--Avg:11.57

    12.Abdul Razzaq--------Avg:28.62

    Same 11 for both fast and slow pitches.

    Bowlers (in order of workload)
    Chaminda Vaas--E/R:2.69---355wkts
    Merv Hughes----E/R:2.94---212wkts
    D.Underwood----E/R:2.11---297wkts
    V.Philander------E/R:2.73---171wkts
    Chris Gayle-----E/R:2.63-----73wkts
    T.Dilshan-------E/R:3.03
    A.Symonds----E/R:2.57

    MJJ has a brilliant Bowling lineup going into this series but i believe that my batting lineup is more than up to the task of neutering them. I've got big hitters in Gayle and Dilshan with a combined 1700 4s opening for me. A solid and steady middle order of 5 players with a combined batting average of 49.37 will either shore up or build the innings, the star players being the South African pair Graeme Pollock and ABD.

    @prath92 better to have the teams in the same order in the OP as in the poll.

    Batting looks even, but bowling belongs to MJJ especially with that Warne factor.

    :lol: I noted you were winning comfortably anyways, and rightly so. You have a more balanced team and despite that collection of big hitters RT has over 3 matches, you should get the series win. Just wanted to balance out the scoreline and knew it wouldn't matter.

    I've got 2 bowlers in Hughes and Vaas who weren't the best ever but they were extremely consistent with line and length. Hughes helped Australia to establish themselves during the 80s and Vaas was alongside Murali the reason for Sri Lankas ascendancy in the 90s.

    Derek Underwood is the best spinner to come out of England and can be talked about in the world's top 10...i honestly don't see why my bowling attack is being poo pooed especially when my batsman line-up is better imo than MJJ

    Depth of the batting is impressive. So you’d get a draw in the flat pitch. But his bowling - particularly with Warne in game three - would get it done
