    Try and make a current XI with your favourite players.

    It kind of explains itself really, I thought I'd make this thread [even though it's probably been done before] to try and see who everyone's favourite players are, and such. It's harder than I thought to do, though. I didn't want to limit it to one form of the game, but feel free if you'd like.

    Graeme Smith*
    Lou Vincent
    Shoaib Malik
    Shane Watson
    Boetta Dippenaar
    Kevin Pieterson
    Mark Boucher+
    Shaun Pollock
    Heath Streak
    Shane Bond
    Nathan Bracken

    12th man: Ramnaresh Sarwan

    There's no Indian or Windies players in the XI for a few reasons. I wanted Sarwan in the XI but I like Dippenaar a little more, and I haven't seen the Indians play for a good while now. I think maybe Raina, or Sreeanth, or more likely Dhoni [although I think he looks really weird when he bats, maybe it's just me but his style seems strange.] will slot in there once I see them play a little more in the near future.

        Smacked the ball straight into the groin of Iwuajoku who has fallen over, 
        miraculously with the ball still caught in his scrotal area! Out!

    Well the crazy Indian fan I am, there's a chance I'd go for an all-Indian XI ... but I'll try to be less biased by having 5 non-Indians.

    TEST XI
    Virender Sehwag
    Rahul Dravid*
    Brian Lara
    Sachin Tendulkar
    VVS Laxman
    Adam Gilchrist+
    Andrew Flintoff
    Shane Warne
    Anil Kumble
    S Sreesanth
    Shane Bond

    ODI XI
    Sachin Tendulkar*
    Herschelle Gibbs
    Yuvraj Singh
    Andrew Symonds
    Mike Hussey
    Suresh Raina
    MS Dhoni+
    Andrew Flintoff
    Irfan Pathan
    Piyush Chawla
    Shane Bond

    Is that the deepest batting lineup ever or is that the deepest batting lineup ever?

    The color of immortality, nature and envy - you are truly a unique person. While clearly the color of nature, you also symbolize rebirth, fertility and hope in the world. On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!

    Sanga isn't the best off spinner in the history of cricket? News to me.
