    What other teams would they make........

    This may have been done before I'm not sure, but I thought it would be interesting to get people thoughts on how many and what other teams a player would make in both tests and ODI's. It would be good if we could have at least 5 opinions on one player before moving on to another.

    Anyways, lets see how it goes.........

    I'll start off with England's Ian Bell.

    Tests:
    IMO would make.....

    Bangladesh, New Zealand, West Indies, Pakistan, Zimbabwe, Sri Lanka, South Africa (over Amlia)

    wouldn't make....
    Australia, India

    ODI's:
    would make......
    Bang, W.I's, Zim, Pakistan,

    wouldn't make.....
    Australia, NZ, SA, SL, India

    You may want to ignore minnows Bang & Zim

    Patel, test wise (assuming each team plays 1 spinner and not two):

    Bangladesh, West Indies, Pakistan, England.

    ODI wise, I think he's third best ODI spinner behind Murali and Vettori, now that Hogg has retired. And he can't even make the NZ side that often!

    Yeah I know they do have a couple decent U19 bats coming through. Maybe not even Bermuda anymore.

    I dont think there is a remote chance he would be picked for England if available

    Think Patel might have a better shot of being selected for Australia (assuming MacGill's not available) than for England.

    If he isn't selected for the West Indies tour we'll know who is responsible for the car bomb that goes outside Cricket Australia's Head Quarters then?

    AWTE.

    Anyone like to try their hand at Michael Vaughan?

    And I think Bell would make Sri Lanka ODI at this stage, now that Atapattu is out of the frame. Better than Kapugedera and Chamara Silva IMO.

    He wont get selected. Cullen will get selected after one good match in two seasons. Doesn't mean he isn't better then an average Kiwis tweaker,

    Would make:

    Tests: Bangladesh, India (as opener), New Zealand, Pakistan, South Africa, Sri Lanka, West Indies & Zimbabwe.

    ODIs: Bangladesh, West Indies (maybe...) & Zimbabwe.

    Andrew Symonds - Test cricket only!

    Not including Zimbabwe or Bangladesh which he would obviously walk in, I'll say the West Indies and maybe Pakistan or Sri Lanka (PEWS will lynch me). Not India or England (especially if the likes of KP finds his form again and if Andrew Flintoff comes back and if he does successfully) IMO and I'll say no on South Africa or New Zealand.

    He would make them all expect India, unless he wants to open the batting. England is 50/50. But I reckon he would have been given a chance in the before Collingwood If he went down the English route. England were every much interest in him as potential specialist batsmen before he made his Australian debut. New Zealand he would get in ahead of Taylor or Sinclair. South Africa he would slot in ahead of Amla, not at three, but 5 or 6
