    Someone else. An easy pick I think, given there are so few others to choose from, I'd have thought

    True mate, true. Trying to imagine the utter **** I'd cop on here if my career ever led to my living in the UK.

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."

    Is it presumptuous to say my 5 year old son will be? Too much pressure? Though I have built his action so he looks like a left-arm Jeff Thomson

    Between Pietersen and Greig for me. I'd probably go for Pietersen though. Been top class for England, and he's still got a good few years left in him. Expecting him to finish his career as one of England's greats.
    It's obviously Pietersen and you know it.

    He has a strong case, but so does Tahnny. Any bloke who can average over 40 with the bat (in an era generally reckoned to be worse for batting than the current one), a bit over 30 with the ball and bowl medium-fast and off-spin is always going to be a useful player.

    Useful player, but not alltime great material which Pietersen potentially is.

    Without Tony Greig what might have become of England in 1974/75 doesn't bear thinking about - for me KP still has a bit to do to get past him - I'd put KP just ahead of Alan Lamb and level with Robin Smith

    An African-born XI?

    1) Strauss*
    2) CL Smith
    3) RA Smith
    4) Pietersen
    5) Lamb
    6) D'Oliveria
    7) AW Greig
    8) Prior+
    9) Pringle
    10) Edmonds
    11) Radford

    Bowling's a bit light, but bats a long way down.
