    hansie cronje can slot in somewhere.

    I think Harbajan would captain the side because hes clearly the best at embarassing his team and country.

    Not that easy where the requirement is "frequently". Some have the odd brain snap, but it can be rare. Not that many who've gone cocoa bananas and lasted, but arrogance widens the field a fair bit.

    Good thread though. Here goes:

    Openers:
    Gavaskar (not frequent so much as a player, but the brain fade in Melbourne + the ongoing mad rants of today help), Edit: Jardine (Arrogance personified. Was going to go for a retired Aussie test opener but I want to try and jag an interview with him for the site, so I subbed Jardine in)

    Middle order:
    Miandad (serial pest, the Lillee incident), G Matthews (coz he's Greg Matthews), Botham (pissed and aggro on flight to Perth, dressing room destruction with DK, Miss Barbados effort), Afridi (coz he's Afridi)

    Keeper:
    Healy (more so early years but his commentary embarrasses from time to time), Zoehrer (was a complete embarrasment - go with him I think).
    Bowlers:
    Lillee (can't be in the Botham and Miandad incidents yet not get a run),
    Sreesanth ("I am Sreesanth - I am not scared of anyone"- kind of sad and funny after the last weekend's incident)
    Akhthar (there's only so many things you can put in a post like this)
    Harby (see Akhthar) - run a close second by Warne mind you - pick Warne if its a spinning deck in lieu of Sreesanth.

    Coach: J. Bracewell.

    Best I could come up with without thinking too much about it.

    Harbhajan Singh, and as much as I love Andre Nel, has to be a place for him somewhere..

    I've got a real dislike for Irfan Pathan.. I'd be horrified if someone as smug as he looks turned up for my side..

    Well, I only gave it a moment's thought. And when I think "cricketer" for a short period, Andre Nel doesn't pop into my scone .

    Worthy of a captain/ coach role though.

    Jesse Ryder should waltz into this team. Unless the dressing room door is locked, in which case he'll smash a window and let himself in.

    Or he'd just not bother and go to the pub instead.

    His name doesn't deserve to get mentioned in a thread like this. Busts his arse for the team, trains the house down and went back and did what he could to try and get back into the best XI rather than have a whinge.

    Someone having a 'smug' look doesn't qualify as an embarrassment to his country I reckon.

    Irfan is the last Indian cricketer I'd say was smug, he just looks like a great guy, always looks friendly and happy. Yuvraj on the other hand...
