    Probably have Marshall at 8 or 9. At least ahead of Murali.

    Given that he was no mug, I'd endeavour to have Bradman at his favourite position.

    Gilchrist easily. And if you're going to have one spinner: Warne.

    Interestingly, Flower's average could well end up ahead of Gilchrist's, couldn't it? Is it currently above that level?

    By a considerable distance.

    Gilchrist, all things considered, has had an incredibly strage career.

    Averaged 59 in his first 43 Tests (61 innings) over 3-and-a-half years, and has averaged 37 in his next 40 (61 innings). Substandard sides excluded, obviously. And in that 2nd period 37 doesn't tell an accurate story - there was one 8-Test (8 innings) streak where he averaged 107, and in the other 53 he's actually averaged 26.67.

    A really, really odd career.

    This is the one and only time I've ever heard mention of Hobbs and Gavaskar opening together.

    Seriously - if you transported Sir John Berry forward 60 years he'd probably barely recognise the thing - and same if you transported Sunny back that time.

    Comparing the 1920s to the 1970s just isn't really on IMO.

    And it's quite possible that I could beat that with...

    Hutton (Leonard, not Richard)
    Fredericks
    Headley (George, not Ron or Dean)
    Weekes (Everton, not Bam Bam)
    Tendulkar of 1990-2002
    Stephen Waugh of 1993-2001
    Walcott (Clyde, not Theo)
    Botham of 1977-1981
    Hadlee (Richard, not Dayle or Dad)
    Lindwall
    Underwood if we were playing on uncovered wickets

    IOW, there are a million all-time XIs you could pick that are about as good as each other.

    Amazed at the number of people willing to leave Tendulkar out, TBH.

    What's an X1?
    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."

    Short-term memory is a terrible thing.

    Not leaving him out completely. He definitely has a case, along with a few others for that spot. Aside from Sobers and Bradman, most others only have a 'claim', not a right.
