    Twenty20 Dream Team

    If there was an auction of all the players who ever played cricket, I would spend my entire fortune (worth about $17.85) and build the following team.

    this team, i believe, can save my life in Twenty20 cricket against any opposition, anywhere.

    victor trumper
    adam gilchrist (wk)
    don bradman (c)
    viv richards
    george aubrey faulkner
    garfield sobers
    frank woolley
    keith miller
    imran khan
    ian botham
    kapil dev


    Reserves:

    walter hammond
    richard hadlee
    wg grace
    jack gregory

    I dont think don bradman would be agressive enough... he only hit one 6 in international cricket. I mean i love and respect the guy and hes great beyond belief.. but there is no real way we know if he would have played hyper type cricket like 20/20 well.

    Back in those days...you actually had to hit the ball over the fence for it to be a six, instead of 10 metres inside the fence.

    The bats were pieces of wood, not nearly as good as modern bats.

    That was only because it minimised the risk of getting caught out, I bet he could have hit loads more, but he just didn't.

    FTR, he scored 300 runs in a day.

    looks more like a test XI SS...

    For starters your openers are rock solid. they can bat for sessions without edging a single ball, but can they make use of field restrictions and go over the top? i dont think so. if you're sure of this being your twenty20 team then i wonder what your test team is!

    Yes, they can. Bradman scored 300 in a day, and averaged 100 scoring at a rate that was very fast by their standards, with very substandard equipment compared to today. He'd be fine.

    i dont think sunil gavaskar belongs in a twenty20 team. neither does jack hobbs.
    but ofcourse, this is your team. just dont bet your life on it.

    Truthfully, if I had to bet my life on a cricket game - I'd do it on this team.
