Yesterday in the Sunday Telegraph Mike Atherton and Ian Chappell named their best post-war Ashes XIs - but with a twist. Athers picked hia best post-war Australian team and Ian Chappell did likewise for England. Here's what they came up with:
Ian Chappell's England XI:
Interesting ommissons - Botham, Laker. Statham, May.
Mike Atherton's Australian XI:
Interesting ommissons: Bradman (Atherton said he was past his best post-war...hmm), Ponting, I Chappell, a couple of Waughs. a sixth batsman, Miller, Jeff Thomson.
Interesting teams with some controversial ommissions...but do you agree with them? And if not who would you have picked?
