Great fielder! 2. Dilshan - Aggressive opener. Great stats (average of near 50 at nearly 90 Strike Rate) and a useful spinner too. Will be my fifth bowler with Yuvraj 3. Dravid - The Wall.

Yuvi - ICC Tournament GOAT contender. 45 average with nearly 90 strike rate 6. Bevan - ODI goat and decent ICC player (Average of 40ish) 7. Imran Khan - Can rebuild in times of crisis and smash it if needed at the end. Brilliant player. 8. Richard Hadlee - Great all rounder (poor average in World Cups) but he is a fantastic number 8! 9. Morkel - can wack the ball Tail - they will try and fail to wack the ball Bowling: 1. Imran Khan (Fast) - Average of 19, econ of 3.8, strike rate of 29 Legend! 2.

Will bowl a few overs if needed Why I win: 1. Amazing Bowlers: All 5 of my main Bowlers average 21 or less, all are wicket takers and my sixth bowler averages 27 and is a wicket taker too. I even have a 7th(Dilshan) in case multiple bowlers have an off-day! My bowlers are legends of the game - Imran, Hadlee, Walsh, and Qadir. I have amazing balance - Pace, and all 3 types of spin. 2. Amazing fielders: Bevan, Gibbs, Williamson, Yuvi - we will be getting some run outs, and saving 20+ runs in the field 3. Balance batting: Two aggressive openers, great innings builders in Dravid and Williamson Williamson, two GOAT finishers in Yuvi and Bevan, and the experienced legends in the lower middle order (Imran, Hadlee) in case of trouble. All bases are covered. One note: My stats are ICC Trophy + World Cup. Overall, I take this in a close one due to better bowling, much better fielding, and a better balanced batting. Crappy writeup Batting The great Viv Richards leads the line up with a 100 against his name in a WC final. He was pretty much the best batsman in world ups until Sachin came about. Sangakarra, one of the best players of all time in any format and Martin Crowe, player of the tournament in 92 WC, further cements the middle order. Crowe was phenomenal in that world cup both as a player and a captain. Ganguly and Jayasuriya open the batting. Ganguly, an all time ODI great, has exceptional ICC record. Jayasuriya, man of the series for WC 1996, will be the X factor upfront. Watson will play the role of enforcer/finisher in the line up with support of Brendon Taylor, who was absolutely brilliant for Zimbabwe in 2015 WC with aggregate of 405 runs. Bowling Alan Donald, Zaheer Khan and Mitchell Starc is a superb trio of pacers. Donald was consistent for SA in WCs as his records reflects while Zaheer Khan had a great world cup for India in 2003 (despite the poor performance in the final) and was possibly India's second most important player in 2011 World cup win. Even in the 2011 final where his final figures were not good due to leaking runs in the end, he pretty much set up the win by choking SriLanka at the beginning of the innings. Starc was the best player in 2011 WC final and the very reason Oz won that WC. Mushtaq Ahmed takes up the role of spinner having played the same role in 92 WC win for Pakistan with excellent figures. Watson and Jayasuriya join the line up with both capable of bowling 10 overs each. Other bowling options are Richards and Ganguly making 8 bowlers in total. Summary - 10 out of 11 players have better record in ICC tournaments compared to their career one. (Borderline for Donald too). Overall team has great pedigree in terms of historically great ODI players with match winning performances in world cups.
