    Sangakkara, not worthy of a place then Brumbers.

    I know he doesn't keep much now, but I'd put him in for Haddin. I'd have him ahead of Tendulkar too.

    I actually think the younger side might have the edge, this time around.

    Edit: susudear beat me to it.

    Had totally forgotten Sanga. Would make it as specialist bat, probly, but leaving out Haddin does give the 30+ team an ominous depth.

    If you were gonna play him as a specialist, who would you drop, Tendulkar? it's a tough call - in many ways dropping him for Haddin would make the most sense, but he obviously does a lot better when without gloves.

    With Sangakkara coming into the side the over 30's have comfortably the better batting lineup but the under 30's edge it with the bowling especially if Mendis is as good as he seems.

    Yeesh. Yeah, it'd be between Sachin and Kallis and the latter's rejuvenated bowling would put him ahead for me.

    Kallis I guess. Tendulkar's continuing solidly.

    Sangakkara's clearly better than all of Ponting, Kallis and Tendulkar right now. He should be the first name on the 'sheet. Those three can then battle for the other two batting slots, with Kallis' bowling obviously giving him an extra dimension.

    Yeah, I'd have Sangakkara, Chanderpaul, Kallis, then one of Ponting\Tendulkar, for the middle-order.

    Openers obviously Sehwag would be one, then Strauss easily the other for mine.

    Yeah, my point wasn't to question Sanga's worthiness but rather to ask whose place he would take

    Would comfortably have Tendulkar ahead of Ponting at the moment.

I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    I probably would as well, yes. But he's closest to the trapdoor.
