    Your 3rd XI

    This may take some work, so Im not expecting a lot of replies.

    However, what is, in your opinion, the 3rd XI for your Country (if a game was to be played tomorrow).

    This is mine for England
    1. Butcher
    2. Denly
    3. Sales
    4. Patel
    5. Bopara
    6. Trott
    7. Blackwell
    8. Pothas
    9. Plunkett
    10. Tremlett
    11. Lewis

    Toughest decision was Denly, Butcher and Trott over Carberry. In fairness not seen enough of Carberry to make a decision where as Trott and Denly have rising reps and Butcher is the experienced campaigner.

    EDIT- I forgot Jon Lewis. He is now included and Gough drops to 4th XI

    Assuming the current team is the 1st XI, if you are interested in guessing, what did I pick as my 2nd XI (assuming fitness) ? Ill give Tres for free as I included him before I saw he had retired.

    This is my guess at Goughy's 2nd XI:

    1) Key*
    2) Trescothick
    3) Ramprakash
    4) Shah
    5) Hildreth
    6) Rashid
    7) Flintoff
    8) Prior+
    9) Hoggard
    10) Harmison
    11) Caddick


    Would've probably guessed at Swann, but he's already nixed him.

    Bolded are correct
    Interestingly Hildreth and Rashid both star in my 5th XI. It is certainly possible that Ive been out of the UK too long
