    No J.Wright/A.Jones N.Astle at the same point of J.Wright last match had already scored a 11 centuries J.Wright 1. I dropped A.Jones for R.Twose and pushed evry one up the list.

    All well saying it, but up to SL getting Test status, he had an FC average of just 31.42 (and it only actually got over 30 in the English summer before SL's first Test - so would he really have been selected before that point for Tests anyway?

    The four bowler look was mainly because i don't think another NZ bowler deserves to be in there.
    Martin Donnelly, Stewie Dempster, Bruce Taylor and Jack Cowie should all be pushing for places. The only thing against them (except maybe Taylor) is the fact that they played stuff all tests. Their first-class records are superb, and they also were excellent in the few tests they played (Dempster averages 65 from his 10 tests ffs!!).

    I don't understand how Ponting couldn't be included in any Aussie All-Time Test XI really....his record speaks for itself. And it's not as if the quality of bowling he has faced has been awful. And he always scores big just when it's needed...

    Well, no-one saying he's bad obviously. But can he lay claim to one of say two or three positions in a side when one is already spoken for (Bradman)? You are aware that there's been over a hundred years of rich Australian cricket history that's gone on before your time so I don't understand how you could not understand how Ponting might not be in an all-time XI especially with the likes of Harvey, Chappell, Waugh etc competing. Quite perplexed by this comment actually.

    Dempster was an opener for NZ. Think he batted 4 for whichever county he played for though. Oh and Bond>Bartlett definately. Bartlett I think is our quickest bowler ever, but his record doesn't compare to bowlers like Bruce Taylor, Chris Cairns etc. Vettori>>>>Petherick as well, despite his test hat-trick on debut.

    And you don't have Martin Crowe in that XI.

    Not worth including any spinners in the test team? Surprising when you have guys the quality of Saqlain or Abdul Qadir to pick from...

    Yeah I'd have thought Saqlain would be a shoe-in for any Pakistan ODI side.
