    My boozers XI.............

    David Boon (c) - 44 cans of beer on a plane
    Doug Walters - makes it on legend alone
    Geoff Howarth - Former NZ captain - serious drinker
    Darren Lehmann - Always seems to be around drinkin
    Keith Miller - read he was a party animal
    Andrew Flintoff - His 40 odd hour binge after the ashes
    Ian Botham - Well anything to get high
    Rod Marsh (wk)- Say no more
    Merv Hughes - Just look at the gut
    Shane Warne - Always hung with merv in the early days
    Chris Pringle - Often bowled at his best hungover from all reports

    If Inzy got tanked up on mescal he could always claim that it was from eating too many agave worms.

    I'd draft Symonds in for Lehmann, since Symonds actually showed up to a game in the professional era still drunk, and I'd drop Warne too. Warne was a drinker early and pre-test career, but he gave up drinking entirely in an effort to get fit in 92 or so. No player fit for the boozers XI would ever give up drinking for cricket.

    Good team otherwise, though.

    How many would he have had if they'd still been travelling by boat?!
