    The ICC Super Series

    Has we all might have know already Australia will be taking on Rest of the World sides in 3 ODI'S indoors at the melbourne indoor stadium and the 6 day super test at the SCG. To me the ODI'S will be evenly contested but the super test Australia will win simply because n i stress on it again Australia superb bowling attack, Here what The Rest of the World XI might be:

    Stephen Fleming * - skipper
    Virender Sehwag or Strauss (Depending on his ashes performance)
    Rahul Dravid
    Sachin Tendulkar
    Brain Lara
    Jaques Kallis or Andrew Flintoff
    Kumar Sangakara + - Keeper
    Shaun Pollock
    Shoaib Akhtar
    Steve Harmison (also on ashes performance) Shane Bond (if he comes back and bowls has quickly and has well as before) or even Vaas or Pathan or Ntini
    Anil Kumbel or Daniel Vettori (Extra spinner due to nature of SCG pitch)
    Muttiah Muralitharan

    so if u look at that team the batting is powerful but if their is any bowling at that can tie them down is australia because, and if u look at the facts other than lara n tendukar McGrath n the pact have good records againts all the rest. While their bowling wont really destroy australia.

    More importantly it's ridiculous for fantasists and realists to try picking the World team now.
    Just think how many players are up for consideration now who wouldn't have been 6 months ago, and the other way around. I mean, who on Earth would have thought there'd be any question over Harmison's place, for instance, 4 months ago? Yet now he's as much part of the pack as anyone.

    Australia or World XI?
    Couldn't really care less.
    Though I must say it'd get Australia even more stupid admiration if they won.

    Fantasist, obviously.
    The only realists are Sunny and his panel.

    I get sick enough of everyone fawning over this "best side ever" as it is; then we'd get the "has anyone else ever beaten a World XI?" added to it.
    I just can't stand the thought.

    How would you feel if it was England that was doing all the winning.

    That is something I cannot know.
    If it was England doing the winning in the exact same circumstances I'd feel exactly the same.
    I don't let nationalistic bias get in the way of my judgement of cricketdom.

    That is something we cannot either know or even realistically guess at.
    And the far-fetched guesses I'd take are that they're maybe, just, in the top 10.
