    Current India/Pak XI Combined

    Lets say if India and Pak didn't seperate, what would the current India/Pak XI be?

    For Both Tests and ODIs

    Sehwag
    Sachin
    Younis Khan
    Inzi
    Dravid
    Mohd. Yousuf
    Dhoni (wk).......................Can't wait for some heated arguements on this.
    Pathan / Razzaq
    Harbhajan Singh / Kumble
    Umar Gul
    Munaf Patel

    ..........................Looks pretty strong to me, only if they didn't seperate! The only thing that could be a problem is the fielding.

    Just Kumble, not Harbhajan. No Dhoni, no Pathan. And no Patel.

    Dhoni would still be ranked higher than Akmal I think, considering what a nightmare Akmal had in England recently with both the gloves and the bat. I don't really like the idea of Tendulkar opening in test's, would be tempted to put Shoaib Malik there, put Dravid at 3, Yousuf at 4, Sachin at 5 and Inzi at 6. Razzaq probably over Pathan, Kumble definately over Harbhajan.

    Sorry, I thought the side would give a preference for proper cricket.

    Yousuf and Dravid at 4 and 3 could be one dangerous line up. Both batsman are in the top 5 for hardest batsman to get out.

    I don't think this "if we didn't separate" thing works here. Many of these cricketers are good because playing against their rival neighbors brought out the best in them.

    Not that I think you're trying to, but lets not start something here. You might just give some trolls reason to flame.

    Let's pretend that none of the Continents ever separated and the Earth is covered in one gigantic land mass and "Imagine all the people sharing all the World".

    Then the team would be 10 Australians + Murali but they would have no one to play.

    I thought my post was pretty self explanatory. Basically what I'm saying is that how far do you think Pakistani and Indian cricket would've gotten if not for the rivalry between them?

    Just about as far as it has gotten with the rivalry. The rivalry means something, but it doesn't just spontaneously produce heaps of talent.

    Do you think Pakistani and Indian kids would have been as excited about cricket if all they had to watch on the telly was their team facing New Zealand, Bangladesh, and Sri Lanka?

    The Pakistan-India thing has historically been a good rivalry not just for the great cricket between the teams, but also for the political tensions that provided a larger backdrop to the series.
