    The worst RoW side

    pick a side with the worst regular current players from all sides except Australia, Bangladesh and Zim. My hunch is that even they would have done better than this selected lot.


    I will do mine later. I g2g right now. But I hope everyone has fun selecting this side.

    Probably the World XI who toured here in 71/72. They'd be pretty ordinary these days

    8. A Giles
    9. M Sami
    10. Naved-ul-Hasan
    11. C Martin (c)

    Chris Martin is skipper for obvious reasons

    have to disagree with that, i rate both of those rather highly to be honest, salman is a decent prospect, and chandana is a decent player as well.
