    Surprised we all have the same choices for the final 3 selections, so far anyway. I wonder if anyone would have had India winning the 1983 WC instead of the great WIs side of the period

    Last edited by Mr Mxyzptlk; 05-01-2007 at 10:56 AM. Reason: Ponting out, on account of the lack of Aussie Tests
    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."
