    Country's whose ICL teams would beat their 1st XI's

    A truly frightening prospect for anyone who cares about the survival of international cricket (as we know it)..

    There are already two, Pakistan and Bangladesh.. Who will be the next? And how long will it take?

    I doubt there will be anyone else...

    ICL Would aim to get Srilanka but all their "players" are in the ipl.

    The NZ one would be pretty strong, not sure if they would beat us but it'd be close.

    Can definitely see how Pakistan's players might see the ICL as the way forward. Teams not exactly beating a path to their door just now so they might think there's nothing to lose & a lot (financially speaking) to gain.

    Suspect a few more fringe English players might make the leap too if the ECB & BCCI can't come to some kind of arrangement regarding their taking part in the IPL.

    NZ's ICL players are mostly pretty average, can't see them overtly troubling NZ's best available XI. Bond's the only really good one, though Tuffey could've been damn good but for all his injury and other problems.

    If you are a Pakistan player, why would you stay put? No one except India wants to play you (and even they may not be sure). I'd join the ICL immedieatly unless I can get a similar IPL contract.

    Frankly, I don't know if Pakistani cricket has a future. This preoccupation with terrorism by all the touring countries isn't going away.

    Astle and Cairns are geriatrics, and McMillan wasn't that good tbh

    Would the Bangladesh ICL team really beat their current team? I highly doubt it

    Was watching some late night ICL highlights on Fox Sports last night.

    Wasn't that bad. Could never actually get into it, but it was quite funny seeing a grey haired Gillespie bowling, Stuart Law standing at first slip, Ian Harvey bowling his slower balls etc.

    Whether they are old or not, they were still fantastic players when they played international cricket, two of the worlds best.

    The NZ, Pak and Bangladesh ICL teams could beat the international XI's, but West Indies can also beat Australia if they play enough. They aren't as good but they have enough talent in them to pull off occasional upsets.

    Yeah, but you have to look at what they're like now for there to be any meaningful comparison, not what they were like 5 or 10 years ago.

    Yeah I watched a bit of the game before, where someone [was it Tuffey] hit a 6 to win the game. Nathan Astle was actually on fire, he took 4 for 19, pretty tame shots some of the dismissals though.

    Maybe a few Irish, Scottish and Kenyan players in a non-test XI
