    Interesting that you have no england players in that team. I would say that Strauss and Trescothick are just as good as Graham smith and flintoff has too get into any world team especialy if it is based on current form

    Justin Langer
    Virender Sehwag
    Ricky Ponting
    Rahul Dravid
    Brian Lara
    Andrew Flintoff
    Adam Gilchrist (k)
    Shane Warne
    Shoaib Akhtar
    Muttiah Muralitharan
    Glenn McGrath

    Flintoff allows two spinners without reducing seam options. Only questionable ones really are Akhtar over Harmison, Pollock etc and Kallis missing out, but I think both can be justified.

    Bond has to do it post-injury against someone other than Zimbabwe first. If he's bowling like he was back around 2002-2003 though, I'd also be inclined to pick him.

    Before you posted that, I was wondering how people could include Langer over Strauss on form?

    Though I must confess that I'd take Langer over Strauss if it wasn't based on current form because he's more sound.

    I guess Gilly's opening slot is contreversial but with the aggression of flintoff lower down he could bat opening.
