Because I'm feeling like a particularly cruel bastard I'll pick these teams apart with what I just instinctively feel are 'weird' picks.
Ian Sea - Dhoni? GTFO. Morkel and even Vaughan also seem a bit dicey to me. I'm probably harsh on Vaughan because of the whole "not used to only drafting since 1970" thing though so I'm willing to give that one a pass; he was a world class batsman for at least part of his career.
Lifetime Fan - I really like most of this team, but Gayle at seven puts me off. He'd probably do a decent job there in reality but it's just so, so far out of position that it just doesn't seem like a proper draft pick to me. Really stands out. Probably the least flawed team though; my favourite.
Navman - De Villiers keeping wicket is an instant turn off; he's only just barely good enough to do it at Test level, let alone in a compilation of the last 40+ years. Also has a tail like a rat and a very unproven even if talented bowling attack.
Stu Monty - Symonds getting a run ensured I wouldn't give this team a second look anyway, but making Andy Flower keep wicket and open the batting alongside Michael Hussey just takes the piss. Hussey did it at times, yes, but rarely, and Flower never even score a Test hundred batting above five, plus his workload would end up ridiculous if he had to do it long term. He was also a poor glovemen. What are you doing with your life, Stu?
Jairzinho - Virat Kohli. Enough said.
Red Banjo - I don't mind this team too much, but we have another long tail here (Healy is listed at 6..) and Klusener shouldn't be getting anywhere near a Test draft. That middle section of the team really lets it down.
