    They've named Australia's greatest ever one day side

    Australia's Greatest XI (in batting order)

    Adam Gilchrist
    Mark Waugh
    Ricky Ponting (vice-captain)
    Dean Jones
    Steve Waugh (captain)
    Michael Bevan
    Andrew Symonds
    Shane Warne
    Brett Lee
    Dennis Lillee
    Glenn McGrath
    Greg Chappell (12th man)

    The only ones I'm a bit suss on are Lee and Chappell. No AB is a little surprise, but you can't deny any of the batsmen named deserve their spot. Hussey would be knocking on the door once he gets a few more games under his belt, probably in place of Bevan.

    Love to have this side heading off to the West Indies next week :p

    Mark Waugh always disappoints me- yes he was possibly the greatest one day batsmen and no doubt when on fire he was awesome but got out so many time playing dumb shots- it was always him getting himself out rather than a good ball...just used to piss me off- he could've done alot more than he did....but just the same he deserves to be there.

    Mark Waugh out - AB in.

    It is absolute bull**** that AB is not in there... Dean jones aside there was no better in our team in that era and he is and will always be the original ICEMAN... steve waugh is regarded as the ICEMAN but AB pulled us out of more **** than anyone. He was a champion.
