    Best Ever XIs

    My blog has a series of Best Ever XIs with each team being selected from players who's names all start with the same letter of the alphabet, eg, A, B, C, D etc...

    A complete list is here (I've reached I so far), but it occurred to me that folk at this forum would have plenty of opinions on this!

    Damn, that G team looks fairly handy. Would give the B team a run for their money.

    Good luck on the Q and Z teams, mate. Probably be a lot of Pakistani players in there, I reckon.
    Favorite XI: WG Grace, VT Trumper, IVA Richards, DCS Compton, FMM Worrell (c), GS Sobers, AC Gilchrist (wk), H Larwood, SK Warne, T Richardson, SE Bond

    meh i cant help it, if i didnt select them i would be making a false world xi.

    I would gladly select more english, i mean an english player, but none so far have really put their hand up.

    they turn up to training late and slack off, i cant put them ahead of these elite athletes.

    Australia is the only pure race of the human species. With pure fluid. Therefore, a world XI should have at least 9 or 10 Australians in it.

    How dare you!! Australians are not convicts. The are the greatest cricket players on God's green earth. God made Australians to play cricket. Everyone else is rubbish. Now the ICC is gaining too much control. Having non-Australian umpires in Australian home tests is sacrireligious and not what God planned for.

    no most of us arent, the ones in prison obviously are.
