    Boeta Dippenaar has that 'rabbit in the headlights' look about him, doesn't he. I've seen that in Ian Bell.

    To include the Marshall twins in there is probably overstating their skills. Well, maybe Hamish should be in there, but James.... I still cannot believe that he's played international cricket.

    I quite like Runako Morton though. There's an element of danger about him. He's certainly a personality, and cricket certainly needs some of those at the moment. May his grandmother rest in peace

    Akmal is more incompetant keeper out of him and Dhoni. Only Brendan 'Fraser' Taylor comes close in ineptitude.

    Afridi test record is quite decent and apart from that he hasn't played much test cricket recentley.

    Cant believe how I missed out Saj and Plunkett.

    Can not think of two more vacant cricketers than Boeta or VRV, they look like they would be in the SEN classes at school.

    Without a given criteria though, you could name Rawl Lewis, for example, forevermore. Threads like this should really outline the qualification criteria in the first post. Played a test in the last year? In their team's first choice XI? In their team's first choice touring squad? It's all too subjective as it is.

    Dhoni is really harsh, I'd have him for England, tbh.

    I'd put Prior as wicketkeeper, its a pre-emptive strike, but I'm quietly un confident

    FFS, that wasn't even my idea, and it's every bit as much about tec as me.

    This is for Tests though, and although Dhoni's stats there are alright, they're terrible compared to what he's done in ODIs. Especially if you take out his 148, that leaves his average at 25.36.

    But G.Jones should be higher than him in consideration for this XI regardless.
