    Sehwag in ODIs and no Kumble in tests are glaring mistakes, IMO.
    We miss you, Fardin. :(. RIP.

    ***Official*** Super Series

    Well, with the World XI sides picked I thought it would be good to have one thread to discuss the event, rather than many threads.

    Here are the sides:

    World XI Test squad Graeme Smith (capt), Virender Sehwag, Rahul Dravid (vc), Sachin Tendulkar, Brian Lara, Jacques Kallis, Andrew Flintoff, Shaun Pollock, Mark Boucher, Steve Harmison, Shoaib Akhtar, Muttiah Muralitharan, Daniel Vettori.

    World XI ODI squad Virender Sehwag, Sachin Tendulkar (vc), Jacques Kallis, Brian Lara, Kevin Pietersen, Herschelle Gibbs, Andrew Flintoff, Shaun Pollock (capt), Kumar Sangakkara, Shahid Afridi, Shoaib Akhtar, Makhaya Ntini, Muttiah Muralitharan, Daniel Vettori.


    And the article...Smith picked to lead World XI

    The color of immortality, nature and envy - you are truly a unique person. While clearly the color of nature, you also symbolize rebirth, fertility and hope in the world. On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!

    I think it will be very close, which gives away the fact that Australia, inspite of their poor form right now, are still better than most other teams in the world.

    No Kumble in the Test side is a mistake. I'd rather Kumble than Vettori. Don't know about Pollock being captain for the ODIs either..

    He wasn't even picked in the wider 30 earlier in the year. IMO he would be quite valuable in this series.

    Muttiah "The Tiger" Muralitharan is a million times better spinner than Kumble,so,there is absolutely no need of a third class spinner like Kumble when you have a genius like Murali in your team.

    Yes the Aussies respect his power, and he always seems to play well against the World champs.

    With Flintoff in at 6, I think they can afford to play another spinner. And I would rather be it Kumble than Vettori.
