    they are the no.1 all time team IMO.

    g. kirsten
    b. richards
    a.d. nourse (c)
    g.pollock
    j. kallis
    aubrey faulkner
    s.pollock
    m. boucher (wk)
    p.pollock
    h.j. tayfield
    a.donald

    - it has two excellent fast bowlers (one of them - donald - an all time great)
    - two good fast medium bowlers (one - s.pollock - all time great)
    - one off spinner - tayfield. again, an all time great
    - one leggie. faulkner who is one of the most devastating all-rounders of all time.
    - 4 batsmen - richards, g.pollock, nourse and kallis - with a 50 + average. one of them - g.pollock - is good enough for an all time XI.
    - 2 more batsmen - kirsten and faulkner - with a 40+ average
    - and the keeper - boucher - averages above 30.

    a very versatile team. you are welcome to relace b.richards with g.smith if you think barry hasn't played enough test cricket. it is still a fantastic team.

    no 2. Australia:

    trumper
    morris
    bradman (C)
    g.chappell
    harvey
    miller
    gilchrist (WK)
    warne
    lillee
    o'reilly
    mcgrath

    no. 3 England:

    hobbs
    hutton
    barrington
    hammond (c)
    compton
    ames (wk)
    botham
    rhodes
    truman
    barnes
    laker

    no 4. West Indies:

    greenidge
    haynes
    richards (C)
    headley
    lara
    sobers
    marshall
    ambrose
    gibbs
    garner
    Dont know y u wood place WI that low. Maybe it has sumthing to do with the fact that u have 10 men playing against teams of eleven. Ne way WI too far down IMO. Many of those South Africans were mostly unproven against 'certain' teams so an asterix remains against such players (G Pollock, B Richards, etc). Not their fault just the nature of politics.
    Cause Slifer said so.........!!!!

    sorry buddy. missed jeff dujon as wk. dont know how to justify why i placed them so low. i apllied the desperate method of adding up the batting averages and wickets per test ratios. ended up with this order. will stick to it.

    agree barry can be replaced. thats why i've said smith is there as an option. but g.pollock played enough to deserve his place i think.

    West Indies, easily. Next is Australia. A fair distance behind you get Pakistan. Then South Africa, India and England.

    I went with other. Their all-time test squad looks the good, IMO.
    The one, the only CW Black
    Code:
    47.3 W Coppinger to Heads 
        Smacked the ball straight into the groin of Iwuajoku who has fallen over, 
        miraculously with the ball still caught in his scrotal area! Out!

    Gotta love Hayden making the all time XI for Australia. Guess they've never managed to produce an opener that could play swing bowling for more than a tenth of his career.
    Tendulkar = the most overated player EVER!!
    Beckham = the most overated footballer EVER!!
    Vassell = the biggest disgrace since rikki clarke!!

    i dunno, but he has clearly improved in that area, added to the fact that he is probably the most dominant opener Australia have produced is a fair claim to be amongst the top 2 openers for Australia IMO.

    Out of interest, what evidence do you have of that?
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    the opener slots for Australia are such a raffle. you can make cases for or against any of:
    trumper, ponsford, woodfull, brown, morris, taylor, slater, hayden or langer.

    Yea, for India you pretty much know most of the lineup, i.e Gavaskar/Merchant opening, Tendulkar/Dravid/? in the middle over, Kapil Dev as the allrounder, etc. Places like Australia and West Indies have produced so much talent that it really becomes hard.

    As a West Indian, I still think Bradman would've done pretty well against the Windies 80's bowling assault. Considering how much faster they began to bowl, I'd guess he'd have a 50-70 average. He had very good reflexes (or so I'm told)

    Well that's an old thread...but I'd still go:

    1. Australia (Bradman leapfrogs them)
    1a. West Indies
    ...
    3. Pakistan/England/South Africa
    6. India
    7. New Zealand
    8. Sri Lanka
    9. Zimbabwe
    10. Bangladesh
