My team is the most balanced. The reason is everyone in my team has a specific role and they are proven performers. I have my team made so that in any circumstances the team will still be able to score 150+. To me nadim bhai's team is made erratically due to the inclusion of Luke Wright at no. 8, the inclusion of Martin Guptill (who will be a weaklink as he will be overshadowed by the presence of Gayle) and the unrealiability of Rohit Sharma. It is proven that if Gayle is in a team then his presence is too big and so everyone else will struggle around him simply because he is a one man team. We all witness this in the IPL when he plays for Bangalore.
As to Tiger Ez's team the opening pair of Sehwag and Dilshan are the most unrealiable pair. As they both like to hit sixes, they are not T20 batsmen with both having mediocre averages of 28.48 and 27.58 respectively. With the pair simply not being good enough the responsibilty to make runs will fall onto Virat Kohli who might set the world alight in the international scene, failed to do anything in the recently conducted IPL5 with an dissapointing average of 28 and with a horrible strike rate of 111.6. He is sure to fail in the circumstances and this will easily lead to a top order collapase for TigerEz's team. So all the weight of the runs will fall onto Mike Hussey as he will need to make the runs. The unstable team of TigerEz will surely lead to loss after loss after loss.
And i dont need to talk about how bad BD_Rox's team is because it is a shocker.
BD_Rox knows how bad his team is so he created two new accounts (called Joy_Bangla and Joy_Bangla12) so he could vote for himself 3 times.
. As for my team. It is easily the most realiable and can play out of any situation when it is approached. All players are experienced and they know the art of winning matches. They are a unit and they will gel to together. All my batsmen from no. 1 to 6 have averages of 30+ and all have strike rates of 127+. My batsmen are all guaranteed to score runs at a healthy rate. Warner and McCullum are a deadly opening batsmen combination as they are both hard hitting batsmen. Warner is a proven T20 specialist who is the best batsmen in the world when he gets going. McCullum is the perfect batsmen to compliment Warner as he too is a hard hitting batsmen.
Shaun Marsh is a truly sublime T20 cricketer. With a mouth watering average of 41.31 he makes T20 cricket look elegant with his beautifully timed cover drives and his charismatic cut shots. He is a solid no. 3 batsmen and is a dependable batsmen when it comes to making runs. Kevin Pieterson is the perfect batsmen to come at no. 4. He is a lethal batsmen in T20 and he proved it during IPL 5 with the third highest average in that series (an average of 61) and with an smash buckling strike rate of 147.34 with a high score of 104*. He is a true sensation in T20 cricket and thats why he will be a perfect no. 4 batsmen for any team. Shaun Marsh and KP are the sensations when it comes to no. 3 and no. 4 batsmen.
Brad Hodge is one of the underrated players in the T20 circuit. He is a great timer of the ball and a scintillating batsmen when on song. He values his wicket more then anyone else but he also plays accordingly to the situation. This makes him a straightfit into the no. 5 position. If he needs to he will hit 6's but when there is a collapse (which there wont be) he can really pull his weight and get the team to a total. A true player who plays for the passion of the game he is a great addition to any team due to his vast experience and intellect of the game.
Suresh Raina and Kieron Pollard are the most dependable finishers of the T20 circuit. Suresh Raina is a similar player to Brad Hodge but with an added advantage, he can hit, hit big. He can also play in any situation and is very useful with his handy offies. Kieron Pollard is one of the prized possession in the T20 arena. A proven match winner he can send the ball into orbit with his hard hitting powess with the bat and can change the game with his effective medium pacers. With a strike rate of 160.63 he is the go to man when the team is needing sixes. Perfect finisher and slots straight into the no. 7 position.
The bowling of my team is a fright to the opposition. The face of Morne and the speedster Tait will scare the living hell out of anyone. Morkel showed his value this IPL5 as he ripped into the opposition and topped the wicket charts. The wicket taking powess of Morkel will compliment the speed demon of Tait. Tait action is hard to read for the opposition batsmen and with an average of 21.79 he will be sure to pick up wickets.
The spinners Ajmal and our very own Razzak will bamboozle the opposition. Ajmal is a natural wicket taker as he picks up wickets regularly (with an average of 15.97) and is also very economical T20 bowler (economy rate of 6.34). His variations will toy with the opposition and this will create headaches for any team. Razzak will be the partner in crime as he will ensure that he will give away as little runs as possible. He too has an average of 19.70 with an economy rate of 6.43. He will get the job done.
Now it is obvious that my team is the best. From watching the IPL it is evident that team combination is the key to winning matches and it is also evident that my team has the best team combination. Now all i need you to do is to go to the voting poll in this thread and vote me.
