    Current (beg April 2008) World XIs by age

    I thought it may be interesting to breakdown World XIs by age.

    So using 1st April 2008

    21 and under XI
    22-26 XI
    27-31 XI
    32 and over XI

    Id be interested to see the demographics. Id expect the older teams to be heavily Australian based and the younger ones less so.

    Ill post my teams in a bit.
    If I only just posted the above post, please wait 5 mins before replying as there will be edits

    Hmm, are there 11 people who've played a Test that are 21 and under?

    Can't think of many. Stuart Broad is one, but beyond that, I'm stuck.

    Sharma's the obvious one, but then I'm out without using cricinfo.

    Blokes like Joe Denly & Phil Hughes who haven't played tests but will should come into consideration for this team tho.

    Surely some of the Bangladeshis are under 21?

    I know Sharma is only 20 but he hasn't played a Test. Same with Suresh Raina, they've both played ODIs but not Tests. So if you want to count both formats, they'd both be competing for a spot.

    Piyush Chawla has played both ODIs and Tests, so Chawla and Sharma would be two who'd make it.

    For 21 and under:


    I think we have a spinner and two members of a Test bowling attack:

    1. Chawla
    2. Broad
    3. Sharma



    We have the following ODI players:
    1. Raina
    2. Sharma


    Uthappa is 22, or I thought he'd make it.

    That's a good one - so we have our bowling attack then.
    1. Chawla
    2. Southee
    3. Broad
    4. Sharma


    Unless there are better bowlers in the international circuit that I've missed.

    Meant Rohit Sharma (the ODI/T20 batsman). Should have been more clear .
