    Bradman, but the other 6 are all very good batsman. Hammond, Ranji and Headley should find their way into the team I hope.

    Sympathy vote for Wally. Headley wasn't that bad either.

    Agreed that the ref has the responsibility to stop the fight.

    I hope a couple of the other batsmen get in this XI in other slots (Hammond, Headley) but for No 3 there is only one choice - The Don.
    Ian Botham, Freddie Flintoff, Kevin Pietersen, Brian Laudrup, Gazza and Daniela Hantuchova....a fan of you all FOREVER!!!
    Can't wait to see Australia field a crap leg-spinner like Hollland or Hohns again.....
    Congratulations to Daniela Hantuchova on her 3rd career title....
    Bob Woolmer 1948-2007..farewell to the best coach England never had...
    Arise Sir Beefy....
