    All time Asia Vs Rest of the World - Test

    Mine......

    Asia

    S.Gavaskar
    R.Dravid
    J.Miandad
    S.Tendulkar
    A.De Silva
    Imran Khan (c)
    K.Sangakara (w.k)
    Kapil Dev
    W Akram
    M. Muralitharan
    W. Younis



    I decided to open with Dravid (ahead of H Mohammad and S Anwar) to fit in a strong middle order. I'm sure many would take Z Abbas or Inzamam over De Silva, but thats how high I rate Avavinda. Good bowling attack with the 2 Ws opening with Imran and Kapil to follow and of course Murali the lone spinner.

    ROW

    J Hobbs
    W Hammond
    D Bradman (c)
    V Richards
    B Lara
    G Sobers
    A Gilchrist (w.k)
    R Hadlee
    S Warne
    M Marshall
    D Lillee

    Like with Dravid I decided to play Hammond out of position as an opener. Lara was lucky to nudge out Chappell, Waugh and Hammond. Also Lillee ahead of Mcgrath was a tough call.


    Who would win with these above lineups??

    ROW easily. You've got Bradman, Sobers and Gilchrist playing, three players which would make it into any team, not to mention all the others.

    Yes I think ROW would cross the line with all of their oars out of the water.

    Rowing joke there
    You know it makes sense.

    Asia don't have a chance with that batting lineup. Take out one of the seamers and put Hanif Mohammad or Inzamam in and they might have an outside chance.

    There was a thread like this a while ago I think.

    My teams:

    Asia XI
    Sunil Gavaskar
    Hanif Mohammad
    Rahul Dravid
    Sachin Tendulkar
    Javed Miandad
    Kumar Sangakkara (k)
    Imran Khan (c)
    Kapil Dev
    Wasim Akram
    Muttiah Muralitharan
    Anil Kumble

    Rest Of The World XI
    Jack Hobbs
    Len Hutton
    Don Bradman (c)
    Viv Richards
    Greg Chappell
    Gary Sobers
    Adam Gilchrist (k)
    Richard Hadlee
    Shane Warne
    Fred Trueman
    Glenn McGrath

    Plenty of changes could be made to the rest of the world side obviously. Marshall and Lillee unlucky to miss out as bowlers, Miller could come in as an all-rounder, Lara and Hammond just missed out as batsmen etc.

    The fact that a maximum of about 3 of the Asian side would make the ROW side means it's a one-sided affair for me.
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.

    i don't think it would be as one-sided as folks make it out to be....although r.o.w would be slight favourites going in....

    Bearing in mind that man for man the ROW side are miles ahead, I don't see how it could be anything but a one-sided game.
