    All time Australia XI vs all time England XI

    I have come up with an all time Australia XI to face an all time England XI. What do you think of it and how do you think I could improve my sides.

    Australia:

    Victor Trumper
    Bill Ponsford
    Don Bradman
    Greg Chapell
    Steve Waugh (cpt)
    Keith Miller
    Adam Gilchrist (wkt)
    Ray Lindwall
    Shane Warne
    Dennis Lillie
    Glenn Mcgrath

    12TH MAN: Alan Border

    England:

    Jack Hobbs
    Len Hutton
    Wally Hammond
    Dennis Compton
    WG Grace (cpt)
    Ian Botham
    Alan Knott (wkt)
    Alec Bedser
    Jim Laker
    Fred Trueman
    Sydney Barnes

    12TH MAN: Harold Larwood
    It will be very close I would tip Australia to win in a five match series.

    I think you are right Bradamn should just give Australia the advantage.

    In the England side you have no lefties at all. Woolley or Gower come to mind. Woolley would add to the spin bowling with Laker. England have always favoured a left handed off spinner against the Aussies.

    Who would you leave out though?
    You know it makes sense.

    England

    1. Hobbs
    2. Sutcliffe
    3. Hammond
    4. Ranji
    5. Compton
    6. Ames
    7. Botham
    8. Rhodes
    9. Trueman
    10. Barnes
    11 Laker

    Australia
    1. Trumper
    2. Ponsford
    3. Bradman
    4. Greg Chappell
    5. Harvey
    6. Miller
    7. Warne
    8.Lindwall
    9.Oldfield
    10.Lillee
    11.Orielly

    Both teams bat deep.

    There are three top grade fast bowlers and two spinners in Australia and England have two pure fast bowlers, one off spinner, one left arm spinner, a useful medium pacer in Hammond AND arguably the greatest bowler of all times, the incomparable Barnes

    Australian spinners are both leg spinners. Cant help it. At least Orielly is not a conventional leg spinner and was more in the fastish/Kumble mould. England have much more variety

    Australia are always favourites once they have Bradman but in this case England have Barnes !!
