    Ponting
    Lara
    Pietersen
    Gilchrist
    Flintoff
    Warne (c)
    Akhtar

    Bond

    ODIs:

    Gilchrist

    Bond

    Not enough T20s played to make a team yet.

    As the post implies, I love explosive players/ express fast bowlers who intimidate with pace and I mostly selected individuals who have won matches on their own in the past.

    1) Wright
    2) Gayle
    3) Dravid
    4) Tendulkar
    5) Dean Jones (Not my favourite player personality wise)
    6) Graham Hick
    7) Hadlee
    8) K Dev
    9) Vettori
    10) I Smith
    11) D Morrison

    I voted for Dean Jones reluctantly because he is a quality batsman. But in Richard Hadlees testimonial game which was supposed to be about honouring Hadlee. He charged down the pitch and smashed hadlee over the top. Which I thought was embarrassing for Hadlee. And bad manners by Jones. If it had've been a regular game it would have been ok.

    I thought he meant live at a game. I would have picked a far different team otherwise. I had to go with Danny Morrison one of my players. Aussie can you clarify?

    Haa. Thats criminal if thats true. Although i'll admit i haven't gone to a FC match, List A or domestic T20 for Lancashire since 2006. No exciting players on domestic circuit to see in this country..

    Too many allrounders tbh. Should really have Chopra, Ganga or Dippenaar in for someone there, but I can't bring myself to drop anyone.
