    Haha, I like the thought of doing it this way.

    1. Mathew Sinclair
    2. Shane Watson
    3. Jacques Kallis
    4. Jason Krejza
    5. James Anderson

    Sinclair can keep wickets, Watto's picked as a batsman.

    Sanga isn't the best off spinner in the history of cricket? News to me.

    Just imagine how much funner my team would be. Jeets being the man, Shakib being awesome, Ryder being an icon, Gayle being cool and McCullum playing the game so hard it makes him bleed.

    I think there'll sooner be another Bradman than another Warne. - Gidgeon Haigh

    [Warne is] the greatest bowler ever produced in this entire world - Muttiah Muralidaran

    [Warne is] the greatest bowler of all time - Glenn McGrath


    In my opinion Shane Warne is the greatest cricketer who's ever lived - Ian Botham

    Warne is the greatest cricketer to pick up a ball ever.
    And is the greatest bowler I have ever laid eyes on. - Brian Lara

    That's it. Would bowl the opposition 5 a side team out in 5 balls, removing the need for another bowler. Then he'd knock off the winning run with a first ball 6, removing the need for any other batsman, or even a guy at the other end for running.

    Really wanted to go with Viv at #2, but Sobers gives me the spin option with just as good batting.
