    Who would you pick in a combined England-Pakistan XI?

    For me

    1 Trescothick
    2 Butt
    3 Inzy
    4 Yousuf
    5 Bell
    6 Afridi
    7 Akmal
    8 Flintoff
    9 Akhtar
    10 Harmison
    11 Kaneria

    Personaly i think this team would be better than world XI

    I'd have to say Hoggard's in better form than Harmison atm...
    Strauss over Butt,
    And i'm tempted to see Geriant in there but not sure if i can justify it

    Geraint over Kamran Akmal? Perish the thought.

    Just say it, "because he's English". I really can't see any other reason you'd want him in there.

    Anyway mine would be (This isn't based on the recent series, but overall what I'd probably like to see)

    Trescothick
    Strauss
    Younis Khan
    Yousuf
    Inzy (c)
    Flintoff
    Afridi
    Kamran Akmal (wk)
    Shoaib
    Harmison
    Kaneria

    I was actually conflicted on where to bat Afridi. You're probably right however, as batting Freddy at 7 would give him more of a rest considering his bowling.

    Vaughan ahead of Younis Khan maybe?
    Stedders' Supported XI
    Tamim Iqbal, JA Burns, UT Khawaja, CA Lynn, Shakib Al Hasan, SE Marsh, +AT Carey, AC Agar, PJ Cummins, Mustafizur Rahman, JP Behrendorff.

    RIP Fardin. RIP Craigos. RIP Prince.

    tough to pick a clear winner out of these two but younis khan learns to build on his numerous starts he certainly be a better player at the end of both player career. Vaughan's batting has dropped off considerably since his golden patch in australia and will only get 1 or 2 really high scores in sequence with a lean trot. Great captain, tho

    1. Anwar (he's got a massive beard)
    2. Butt
    3. Younis
    4. Yousuf
    5. Inzamam-ul-Haq
    6. Clown (he was born in England, so he qualifies)
    7. Akmal
    8. Razzaq
    9. Naved-ul-Rana
    10. Akhtar
    11. Kaneria

    And none of em play for England... Oh well. Only the best can make it on the team.
    I bowl seam-ups and take the pace off the ball.

    - Trescothick
    - Strauss

    - Shoaib Malik
    - Youhanna (I cant call him anything else)
    - Inzy

    - KP
    - Flintoff

    - Akmal
    - Harmison
    - Shoaib
    - Kaneria


    If Vaughan is fit, he would replace Shoaib Malik or Kevin Pietersen depending on whether the team needs Malik's off spin or not ?
