In the Chappell - Border - Waugh poll thread (Chappell vs. Border vs. Waugh) we got caught in a detailed discussion about whether they would make it to a world xi representing post packer era cricketers. I think this deserves a separate thread.
The last supertest between aus and WI concluded on april 10th 1979 (Cricinfo - 5th Supertest: WSC West Indies v WSC Australia at St John's, Apr 6-10, 1979)
I am going to use April 11th, 1979 as the starting date for working out the stats. I will keep a minimum cut off limit of 2000 runs for batsmen (average > 40) and 100 wickets for bowlers (average <30 ). 2000 runs and 100 wickets for all-rounders. batting avg > 25; bowling avg < 35) And 2000 runs and 100 dismissals for wicket keepers. Since the cut off limit is pretty low I want to leave out the matches against zimbabwe and bangladesh and the stats involving the ICC supertest between aus and World XI.
let me come up with a list of candidates in the next post before we start the discussion. I will also set up polls if necessary
