    all time 11 with a difference!

    added one more all-time 11 thread but this one is with a difference

    whats different is that you can only pick players that you have watched in a full game [not in highlights]!

    shoot on!

    I was wondering that, did you mean watched in live play, or on TV?

    Not that it makes a lot of difference.

    All seen live:

    Barry Richards
    Sunil Gavaskar
    Vivian Richards
    Greg Chappell

    (and I saw him keep wicket!!)

    David Gower
    Derek Randall
    Ian Botham
    Bob Taylor
    Shane Warne
    Richard Hadlee
    Joel Garner

    Attending a couple of Lord's finals in the early 80s (when Somerset were playing) accounted for Richards and Garner. Chappell kept wicket for the Australians vs a Rest of the World XI at Arundel in 1977, the first 'proper' match I ever saw.

    Don't think it makes much difference in my case, I pretty much picked those names off the top of my head - although I haven't seen much live Test cricket in the last 10 years so there are plenty of 'oldies' - about the only way I could make that team stronger is by substituting Randall (now 12th man) with Imran Khan, who I saw make some of his 100 at the Oval in 1987 (his last Test in England).

    First memories of watching full live games of cricket on the television came circa 1991/1992 World Cup. Attended my first ODI in 1995, so I admit I don't have a huge range of players throughout history to choose from. Has an Australian bias because the majority of games I seen at the ground live are Australian contests. Also reflects the dominate team throughout my period watching cricket.

    Matthew Hayden - Dominated the opening batting position for near on a decade.
    Saeed Anwar - Does not look out of place in this side. Under-rated.
    Ricky Ponting - Fantastic batsman, for so much of his career you felt a century was on the cards everytime he strode out to bat.
    Brian Lara - For mine, the best batsman to watch when in full flight
    Sachin Tendulkar - Automatic selection
    Steve Waugh - Tough leader, tough batsman, backbone of the side
    Adam Gilchrist - Clearly the best.
    Shane Warne - Genius leg spinner
    Curtley Ambrose - As dangerous as they come. Have great memories of big Curtley coming into bowl at the MCG.
    Allan Donald - Anyone who seen him bowl circa mid 90's can appreciate just how brilliant a bowler he was. White lightening for sure.
    Glenn McGrath - Metronomic accuracy. Never failed to take big hauls of wickets whilst going for zero runs


    So many other cricketers could easily make it. Murali, Sehwag, Dravid, Walsh, Flintoff, Younis, Akram, Inzy, Cairns, Kirsten, Kallis, Pollock, Jayasuria, Sanga, Gooch, Pietersen, Healy, Stewart, Flower...on and on.

    If we're counting tv, add in Viv Richards in Waugh's spot and Marshall for Pollock.

    At the ground:

    Hayden
    Gilchrist
    Lara
    Tendulkar
    Ponting
    Inzamam
    Cairns
    Pollock
    Donald
    McGrath
    Muralitharan

    So many great players, yet hardly any of them did well when I saw them (which was more than once in the case of Hayden, Gilchrist, Tendulkar, Ponting, Cairns, McGrath and Murali).

    The only ones I've seen do well are Hayden (181*), Cairns (one 80-odd in about 8 innings) and McGrath (took 3-for in one game I saw).

    Watched live at the ground:

    G. Smith
    Trescothick
    Kallis
    Lara
    Pietersen
    Chanderpaul
    A. Flower+
    Flintoff
    Vettori
    Gough
    Muralitharan

    That's some batting line up! The relatively poorer bowlers just shows how lacking quality bowlers have been in the English game for the last 4 or 5 years (since I've started going to watch cricket at the ground), and the fact I missed out on seeing an Ashes match last tour (plus Steyn being injured for the Oval test last year I guess).
