Just a shame that Shane Watson got runs. Otherwise I'd have him heading up this merry band of players.

I'd also look at Chris Gayle. Poor given his record and suprosed to see no Graeme Smith, he is clearly not a T20 opener.

Mock Wah

By reputation or level of expectation.. Graeme Smith should have made it ahead of Vijay.

The Reverse Sweep

Yes, I'd have loved to have had Watson in, but alas he did get some runs and had a very high strike rate. Smith was close but Gayle did score 98 against India so it might have been a bit unfair to include him!! It was close between Vijay and Gambhir, but in the end nine runs in three innings against proper sides swung it for me!

The Reverse Sweep

True Smith has a better reputation, but Vijay arrived from the IPL having hit the highest score and with a reputation as a thrasher at the top of the order. It was a close call though with Gambhir too!
