    My ATXI:

    Hobbs
    Gavaskar
    Bradman
    Tendulkar
    Richards
    Sobers
    Imran Khan (c)
    Knott
    Hadlee
    Marshall
    Muralitharan

    12th man: Lillee

    Only recent change for me has been Knott for Gilchrist. I have sort of come around to feel in a hypotetical team with such a great top 6, i can opt to go for the supreme glovesman instead of Gilly.

    For Lindwall? May give you slightly less with the ball but much more with the bat. Apart from Trumper I think that's still a very good side, but Lillee, McGrath, Warne and Miller are enough as a bowling attack - for balance - really.

    Also something I just realised, in Benaud's XI he doesn't even put Malcolm Marshall in the candidates, let alone getting picked for the XI.

    Lindwall was superior with the ball and in a batting attack which contains Bradman and Gilchrist I really don't think you need the extra 15 runs that Miller might give you. Much more preferable to get the better bowler IMO.

    Yeah I don't know why. Perhaps it is due to Border's relative success against Marshall? You must not forget that Benaud has watched Australia more than any other team and Border was the most successful batsman against Marshall in the world.

    Miller is only slightly less effective than Lindwall as a bowler TBH. Lindwall's equal if you are talking dollars and cents (average and SR) and only comes up short in wickets per match (he bowled less). As a 3rd pacer that difference probably means even less; especially with a spinner in the caliber of Warne.

    Gives you much more with the bat, an excellent fielder and also a good leader. Your team, but I don't think it effects the balance much at all if you really wanted him in the team.

    I'd be much more included to play Miller for one of the batsmen in that team. I wouldn't play him for Lindwall - if you're only going to have four bowlers, which is fine, they really should be the best four available to you on bowling alone IMO.

    With a team that has Bradman you'd get away with it. Generally, I'd remove a bowling all-rounder for a bowler. The alternative gives you too much drop in quality for that discipline IMO.

    Yea Ponting would have to go out unfortunately in that team. Having Miller in the AUS ATXI to give 5 bowlers in invaluable.

    Also Simpson>Trumper.

    Ponting is largely regarded as the 2nd best batsman since Bradman. It would probably be worth playing him as an opener over Trumper than dropping him. To drop a batsman I'd probably drop Border, but his captaincy is easily worth 5 runs per innings I'd say.

    No, Miller misses out simply because the quality of the team is so high that I can't fit him in. If anyone were injured however...
