    As far as I am concerned, the true competition is between Inzy, Waugh, Flower and Lara. (as much as I love Dravid, I don't think he should play at five) Personally it's hard for me to choose between Flower and Inzy and Steve Waugh's record speaks for itself. Waugh will probably be a deserved selection here.

    Viv's record at no. 5 doesn't do justice to his talent. Gotta be Isaac.

    As tempting as it is to jump onboard the patriotic bandwagon & vote for Thorpey, I'll have to go for BCL as it just seems counter-intuitive to me to have a best XI from 86-06 & him not to be there!

    Viv Richards doesn't even stand a chance. This is not an all-time XI nor is it a 1980s XI. Take a look at the statistics and you'll see that Richards didn't accomplish much in the defined period for this poll. Lara or Waugh are the clear frontrunners with Inzy in 3rd. Lara for me, you can't possibly leave out one of the two best batsmen of the past two decades out of this team just because we've got too many Punter-loving Aussies on here (Oh wait, I think I voted for him too)

    Can't go past Steve Waugh. If he misses out on this team it would be a catastrophe. But, so would Lara missing the team.

On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!

    Yea, Lara gets my vote too.

    Does anyone fancy a 2nd 1986-2006 World Test XI? Would be interesting to see who these guys play against.
