    Heaven v Earth

    With all the select XI's floating around it's getting harder to come up with something different, but here's an attempt.
    The Heaven team must all be dead and the Earth team still alive.

    Heaven
    1. Hobbs
    2. Headley
    3. Bradman
    4. Walcott
    5. Grace
    6. Hammond
    7. Grout
    8. Marshall
    9. Larwood
    10.Trueman
    11.O'Reilly

    Earth
    1. Gavaskar
    2. Richards(B)
    3. Richards(V)
    4. Tendulkar
    5. Lara
    6. Sobers
    7. Gilchrist
    8. Warne
    9. Lillee
    10.Hadlee
    11.Murali

    It would be Hell and Earth for some of those fellas.

    Earth
    1. Gavaskar
    2. Barry Richards
    3. Tendulkar
    4. Lara
    5. Sobers
    6. Imran
    7. Gilchrist
    8. Warne
    9. Wasim
    10.Hadlee
    11. McGrath

    Put Wasim in there for some left arm variety, though Ambrose is unlucky.

    Heaven/Hell

    Hobbs
    Hutton
    Bradman
    Headley
    Hammond
    Keith Miller
    Cameron
    Trueman
    Laker
    Marshall
    Barnes

    Put Cameron in there just because I wanted to put a lesser known name in there somewhere. But by all accounts, he was an excellent keeper.

    Who?

    Aside from Bradman, who's a given....
    Cricket Web's 2013/14 Premier League Tipping Champion

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "I don't believe a word of Pietersen's book, but then I don't believe a word anyone else has said either."

    McGrath exists everywhere, heaven, hell, earth. For him, a specific place is just a transient thing. He is omnipresent, in hell, as well as in heaven.

    So he's watching you in the toilet is he? Off-putting to say the least. I s'pose at least he refrains from sledging you there.
