    The one player you want to play for your country

    Which player would you want from any other country. Remember if you select someone who is 35ish they may only play for 1-2 more years.

    I'd go for Hussey for NZ. We need an Opener and If I recall Hussey started as one.

    Sanga isn't the best off spinner in the history of cricket? News to me.

    For England

    It would have been Gilchrist a few years ago, and maybe still is.

    Tossup between him and Kallis.

    For SA

    Ponting or Murali

    Taking age into the equation - Kevin Pietersen. Otherwise Murali.

    It'd have to be a wicket keeper of some variety, surely...

    some gun bowler, Bond with less injuries probably

    Flintoff maybe can bowl fast and can bat...

    Flintoff it is.

    I was under the impression that Gilchrist was a keeper. Am I mistaken?

    Yeah, I was referring to your "Tossup between him and Kallis." comment. Kallis would be very useful for England as it would allow Flintoff to bat 7 and Read/Jones to bat 8 without disrupting the bowling too much. However their wicket keeping options have been so dire recently that you'd just have to take one..

    I believe McKanga would like Geraint Jones for Australia.
