    ONE international player.........

    So, you can have one international player on your national side.
    Who would it be?

    I would choose Jacques Kallis for England because he's perfect in every way

    In the short term for Aus, Murali to replace Casson or Steyn/Flintoff (assuming fitness) to replace Johnson.

    For all my reservations (for the obvious reason), it'd be Murali for me. In my watching lifetime we've never had a truly world-class spinner (think my lifespan overlaps with Deadly's test career, but certainly never saw him play) so it'd be amazing to see what difference one would make to us.

    I think Monty's perfectly adequate, btw and this isn't a pop at him at all, but Murali is obviously a couple of leagues above in terms of effectiveness.

    Currently I'd love Brett Lee. I understand why one would want Steyn since he's younger, but I reckon add Lee right now (who IMO is the better bowler), and his peak would be able to coincide with the last couple of years of Sachin, Rahul, Laxman and Sourav.

    Of say the last decade I'd choose McGrath or Ambrose.

    Why go short-term, try Ajantha Mendis instead, so far 19 FC games, 111 wkts @ 14.54

    Dale Steyn for India...fast bowling hasalways been our weaklink...With great batsmen around, I would want a great fast bowler to spearhead our attack...I would choose Dale Steyn over some other fast bowlers because he is young and has a large amount of cricket left in him...So, he'll be able to serve Indian cricket for many years (unlike some other great fast bowlers of today)...

    All time - Bradman or Sobers or Grace.
    Currently for Australia - Mendis or Steyn or Sidebottom.

    For Australia definitely Mendis. Heck any number 1 spinner from another country (apart from Pakistan and West Indies) would be fine.
