    Southern vs Northern Hemisphere

    Instead of the World XI selections, how about a Southern Hemisphere vs Northern Hemisphere game....

    ....who would make the teams and who would win?

    Pretty good, although if this is a ODI I would have McCullum in for Boucher and Bond ahead of all of them in any format if he was available. And I would leave vettori out if test match unless it was a turning track

    Current, all-time, 1970-2001, 1930-current-day, 1900-1970, what-what-what?

    And is the subcontinent defined as part of Cricket's Southern Hemisphere or is it purely 100% geographical in that the antipodes and South Africa alone are SH?

    FWIW, I'd go, for a 1930-current-day NH (assuming England, West Indies and the subcontinent, and assuming UNCOVERED wickets)
    Merchant
    Sutcliffe (Hobbs played just the one year in the 1930s, and obviously he is possibly as obvious a selection as Bradman)
    Headley
    Hammond (c)
    Sobers
    Tendulkar
    Imran Khan
    Engineer \ Knott (w)
    Marshall
    Verity
    Underwood

    And SH:
    Woodfull
    Morris or maybe Richards (B)
    Bradman
    Pollock (G)
    Chappell (G)
    Miller
    Gilchrist
    Hadlee
    Lindwall
    Donald
    Lillee

    However, one could substitute in Grimmett, O'Reilly and Warne for any of the three specialist seamers and on uncovered wickets it would be unlikely to weaken the bowling.

    No, no, no....its a current team along the lines of the ICC # 1 ranked vs World XI game that never lived up to the hype....at least players would still be having "Hemisphere" pride to fight for

    Wow, the Northern Hemisphere selection is hard....too many good batsmen and not enough good pace bowlers...

    ....here's an attempt though

    1. Cook
    2. Sehwag
    3. Dravid
    4. Yousuf
    5. Pietersen
    6. Sangakkara +
    7. Flintoff
    8. Vaas
    9. Sidebottom
    10. Ahktar
    11. Muralitharan

    Reserves: Tendulkar, Younis, Flintoff, Kumble, Asif

    Hmm, in that case... as I am a little boerd (sic)...

    NH:
    Vandort
    Cook
    Dravid
    Tendulkar
    Chanderpaul
    Sangakkara (w)
    Pietersen
    Taylor
    Sidebottom
    Muralitharan
    Mohammad Asif

    SH:
    Smith
    Hayden
    Ponting
    Kallis
    Hussey
    Clarke
    Haddin
    Lee (B)
    Clark
    Steyn
    Nel

    And yes, fully aware that I've picked two players in there that couldn't 100% be currently said to be "Test players" (as Haddin STILL hasn't played and Nel is currently sidelined). I remain extremely confident they are the best players of their type currently. Poor old NZ - there's definately the chance that Taylor\Fulton\Southee\Hay might be in there in a few years' time, but sadly right now none make the grade compared to Aussies and Proteas.

    How can you possibly pick Yousuf and Pietersen ahead of Tendulkar and Younis Khan? Never mind Sidebottom and Vaas (or Shoaib or Murali FTM) over Asif?

    Well I said I was stuggling to sort out which batsmen to leave out....I did have Tendulker and Younis in the squad, however they'd likely replace Yousuf and Chanderpaul rather than Pietersen....Asif was also in my squad, so no problem dropping Vaas

    Hmm... right this moment, Chanderpaul > Pietersen (though you didn't have Chanders in your original XI) IMO. It's only in the fact he's likely to be around rather longer in future that KPP has it over Shivna.

    Would actually consider Chanders over Younis now I think about it, very much so in fact.
