    Can't be a Test XI as there aren't 11 Test sides, so I assume this is for ODIs?

    I would pick Kennedy Obuya over Niall O'Brien 6 out of seven days a week. And on the seventh day I still opt for Ashish Bagai from Canada

    They scored a single, declared and still won by an innings

    I started a thread where you had to pick an XI with one per team a few years back, think there you were allowed to pick 2 from one team though. Seem to remember SS picking four Aussies because he refused to pick anyone from Bangladesh/Zimbabwe

    Might have a go at this later

    On form, ODI XI...

    Sachin Tendulkar (India)
    Shahriar Nafees (Ban)
    Shivnarine Chanderpaul (WI)
    Jacques Kallis (SA)
    Kumar Sangakkara (SL)
    Mohammad Yousuf (Pak)
    Tatenda Taibu (Zim)
    Daniel Vettori (NZ)
    Stuart Broad (Eng)
    Dave Langford-Smith (Ire)/Thomas Odoyo (Kenya)
    Nathan Bracken (Aus)

    Harsh on McCullum, but I had to fit a Taibu in, and Vettori had an excellent series against England.

    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    Because Grant's an opener, Andy isn't, and Rodders picked Flower to open the batting.

    And for all I know, "Bula" might be a wicketkeeper.
