    Lillee is the greatest fast bowler ever but he wouldn't make a Post WSC XI unless his whole career is taken into account. I wouldn't choose Alan Knott for the same reason or consider Greg Chappell - though with Richards, Lara and Tendulkar the middle order picks itself.

    1. Gavaskar
    2. Greenidge
    3. Richards
    4. Tendulkar
    5. Lara
    6. Botham
    7. Gilchrist
    8. Hadlee
    9. Marshall
    10. Warne
    11. Murali

    i would go for this team

    Gavaskar

    Viv Richards
    Tendulkar
    Lara
    Imran (C)
    Gilchrist (WK)
    Marshall
    Warne
    Lillee
    Murali

    12th man: Botham
    Reserves: G. Chappell, R. Hadlee, Ambrose, McGrath, Border

    The article can be found here

    http://kurtrudder.*************/2008...-wsc-test.html kurtrudder dot blogspot dot com

    I wrote the article......take the time to check out the link.......I put together an extensive archive of videos for each player as well.

    Lillian Thomson makes a good point about the portion of their career within the time span......it had something to do with Lillee missing out on the final XI. I felt Gavaskar and Richards still achieved enough after WSC to get in the side.

    Why is that? Half his career is played post WSC, and does roughly as well.

    No PMs here.

    Just Google "kurtrudder". It is the first result, I believe.

    He was nothing like the same bowler after WSC, in England in 1981 he took a lot of wickets on fairly helpful surfaces bowling little more than fast-medium and was actually overshadowed by Terry Alderman.

    3 spinners would be too much anywhere except on rank turners in India. Replace Kumble with Wasim Akram and perhaps Langer with Hayden and that would be my team. Although I might be tempted to have Ponting over Steve Waugh..


    Edit: And Imran instead of Kapil.

    Thats actually true if you take WSC to mean after it ended rather than after it started as I wrongly assumed.

    Steve was not better batsman but much better captain than Ricky Ponting.

    As batsman:Ponting>Waugh

    As captain:Waugh>>>>>Ponting.
