    India probably has the edge. They have 2 explosive, well settled and consistent and fearsome openers like Sehwag and Gambhir at the top. A solid reserve in Vijay. A middle order to die for in Dravid, Laxman and Sachin, a wicket-keeper batsman like Dhoni who may be modern game's best such after Gilchrist.

    I don't consider Yuvraj as a worthy test player He is too inconsistent. Couldn't handle either pace or bounce in SA and Aus at all. Can't play either swing or spin. He can only play well on helpful tracks. I think he is just a flat track bully. The only time he applies himself is when his place in the team is in question.

    Bowling needs consistancy since no bowler we have goes past a series without fitness and injury issues. Bhajji is an idiot and inocnsistant and yet he is supposed the only assured bowler in the team. BCCI destroyed Ishant like they destroyed Pathan by over playing him in meaningless games. Mishra should be persisted with in tests. Ojha looks good. The rest will continue to come in the team and play and go out getting hurt again!

    I would have to go SA due to them being the only team that seems to be leaving out a seriously long list of talented players.

    Here is a list of any batsman that can make the SA team: Smith, Elgar, Amla, Kallis, Khan, Smuts, Kuhn, Rossouw, AB, Prince, Cook, Rudolph, Peterson, Bailey, Vandiar.

    ... which makes me wonder why you get so worked up about two SA players deciding to move to England.

    In tests - India
    "This is a clash of strategy. And of methods, culture and politics. This is a new-era rivalry. Not as ancient as the Ashes, or as passionate as India-Pakistan. Two countries that are so different, yet share rampant egotism, high self-opinion and a belief that being born in their country is superior to other births. This brings together a belligerent bunch of brats, bullies and braggers."- Jarrod Kimber

    I'm sure we could all make a list of untried, untested players that could play for our countries. Doesn't make them any good though.
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    Anyone want to join the Society?

    Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.

    India for sure.

    North, Watson, Hussey and Katich would struggle to make the Indian top 5.

    Yeah, it's India. Especially if they fit Vijay into Yuvraj's place.

    South Africa aren't too far behind, but they're definitely behind.

    Well, North can't make Australia's top 5
