    Your Dream Series

    OK, here's the deal.

    You can have 5 matches, with any players(past or present, mine will be present) in any teams, with any format, at any ground, and if you wish, any umpires or other little things like that.

    My 2 teams:

    Team 1

    A Strauss
    M Trescothick
    B Lara
    B Hodge
    J Kallis
    A Gilchrist+
    A Flintoff
    A Agarkar*
    S Warne
    S Harmison
    G McGrath

    12th Man: S Jones

    Team 2

    V Sehwag
    M Vaughan*
    S Tendulkar
    K Pietersen
    P Collingwood
    G Jones+
    S Pollock
    A Giles
    I Pathan
    S Harmison
    M Murrali

    12th Man: R Ponting

    Match A

    50 over ODI

    WACA, Perth, Australia
    Umpires: B Bowden, S Bucknor

    Match B

    5 Day Test Match

    Kingston, Jamaica
    Umpires: S Taufell, D Orchard

    Match C

    60 over ODI

    Eden Gardens, Chennai,India
    Umpires: B Bowden, D Bird

    Match D

    5 Day Test Match

    Cape Town, South Africa
    Umpires: A Dar, R Koertzen

    Match E

    Timeless Test Match

    Lords,London,England
    Umpires: D Bird, D Shepard

    No umpire gets more than 2 Matches, (Bird and Bowden get 2) and Each match is on a different continent.

    Yours?
    Or something.

    Your Team 2 looks pretty weak compared to Team 1, especially with Ponting as the 12th man.

    I think a great current series would be a test match series (6 day tests) with the teams:
    Aus test team vs combined Asian test team vs combined SA,Eng,NZ,WI test team. I can't really decide on a venue but I would say better to have one conutry as the venue for the whole series so that the players are not constantly having to adjust to different conditions.

    I agree, the second team is too weak. A dream series would be a tri-series... Australia vs South Asia vs Rest of the World. Now that would be entertaining! It would consist of three Twenty20 matches, 7 ODIs and 5 tests.

    Dream series? Either the West Indies of 1984 against Australia of 2001 or today, or an all time XI matchup.

    1st XI
    Jack Hobbs
    Herbert Sutcliffe
    Viv Richards
    Walter Hammond
    Greg Chappell
    Steve Waugh
    Imran Khan
    Alan Knott
    Richard Hadlee
    Alan Davidson
    Muttiah Muralitharan

    2nd XI
    Len Hutton
    Sunil Gavaskar
    Donald Bradman
    George Headley
    Brian Lara
    Gary Sobers
    Adam Gilchrist
    Keith Miller
    Shane Warne
    Sydney Barnes
    Glenn McGrath


    Tried to match them up reasonably evenly. I'd pick the second XI to win, though.

    Eden Gardens, Kolkata, India. Although the Chidambaram, Chennai would be a better choice IMO.
