    Another one! Asian XI vs. ROW XI - Twenty20 fundraiser match

    http://uk.cricinfo.com/db/ARCHIVE/CR...19JAN2005.html

    Well, we've already spent a fair amount of time here posting our World XI lineups for Twenty20 in the past year - now we actually get to see them! Well, hopefully they'll be top class, anyway. I look forward to this.

    Can anyone be bothered to see how many countries will have players available for that game - outside of Australia, Bangladesh and England?

    Anyway inevitably here are my ROW XI & Asian XI, the ones in bold are the ones that were in my original overall World XI from a few months ago (change Malik for Rafique if you count that he can't bowl).

    Gibbs
    Gayle
    Strauss
    Lara
    Flintoff
    Symonds
    Gilchrist
    Cairns
    Vettori
    Harmison
    McGrath

    Jayasuriya
    Sehwag
    Tendulkar
    Sangakkara
    Shoaib Malik
    Abdul Razzaq
    Shahid Afridi
    Vaas
    Shoaib Akhtar
    Kumble
    Murali

    what is strauss doing in the 20/20 format ? i would think Ricardo Powell is more suitable than Strauss...he is the west indies version of afridi.

    Should be fairly obvious, he's a very good batsman, he can play all the shots AND hits the gaps and is a very good fielder. Look at his effortless 50 against Australia in the Champions Trophy - faster than a run-a-ball.

    haha what a joke... strauss should not even get a look in at the 20/20 format.... if your reasoning is "he can play all the shots" why cant Ponting, Astle, or others get in?

    You gotta pop dimi Mascarenhas in there. The guy owns at 20/20. That he doesn't get in the england ODI is irrelevant.

    i'd think they would only use high profile international players

    I'd say Gilchrist should open the ROW side with Gayle, with Ponting instead of Stauss at 3 and probably someone like Powell or Clarke at 7.

    Astle!!!!!!!!

    Fleming shows him up on a regular basis. He also takes too long to do anything and seems to spend all that time hitting fielders and playing and missing.

    I dunno, it seems like these bits and pieces players don't really work in internationals. The way Harvey and Hogg have done *really* well in English domestic Twenty20 but they're not nearly as effective in internationals.

    But there haven't been many international twenty20's to compare to though, so until there has been we just don't know.

    I meant in ODIs, I don't see them being any more effective in international Twenty20 because there are just so few of their type around that bowl effectively.
