    Cricket trade week

    In Australian football this week its 'Trade Week', the one week of the year clubs are allowed to trade players and picks in next years player's draft amongst themselves.

    If such a week was possible in international cricket, what kind of deals would you like your country to make. Remember, the management of both teams have to agree for a trade to take place, so any suggested deals have to have at least perceived equal value to both sides.

    To start off, I'd want to address the one glaring weakness in Australia's roster - a young-ish Test quality spinner. Options that are available would include Kaneria from Pakistan or Paneser from England. I'd offer England their choice of Chris Rogers or Brad Hodge for Panesar.

    Ideal trade deals:
    Pakistan: Jaffer + Gambhir for Asif
    England: Karthik (Dinesh) for Jimmy Anderson/Chris Tremlett
    Australia: Laxman for Johnson, M

    I would give
    - Ganguly for Bond to NZLand and
    - Kumble for Stuart Clark to Australia.

    To add weight to the offer I would give Ravi Shastri and Gavaskar for free as incentive

    I'd ask for Asif and Clark. The Pakistanis and Australians can have any and all players they want in exchange.

    In any case (specific trades):
    Rahul Dravid for Stuart Clark.
    Rahul Dravid, Sreesanth, Munaf Patel, Irfan Pathan for Mohammad Asif.

    You reckon Asif is worth four times what Stu Clark is?

    No doubt - which might be worth an extra player. Wouldn't have thought it was worth an extra 3.

    Hmm, Your best bat and whole seam attack for an unproven, injury prone player that has played only 10 Tests in nearly 3 years

    No deal on that one for mine. We don't need Laxman in our middle order, whereas I think Johnson will be in our best pace attack from the end of this coming summer and will stay there for several years to come.

    And who doesn't seem to be causing the SA batsmen anywhere near as many problems as Clark did.

    We don't need him, but if we had him then at least he couldn't play against us...

    Slightly different conditions you'd think, but I like your thinking anyway...
