    Probably Southern Hemisphere. The Northern Hemisphere seems to lack something in bowling resources compared to the Southern Hemisphere team.

    Hmm.. yeah you're right. The batting order made it seem that way, perhaps. Then I think Gilchrist's batting could be the difference between the sides.

    I guess some in the Southern hemisphere team would have felt unlucky to miss out...like Hayden, Border, Nourse,Donald, S.Pollock,Crowe and so on.

    I'm sorry but SH has NH covered

    How exactly do you figure NH have the stronger bowling line-up?

    Honestly can't see how you can separate the attack of Trueman/Marshall/Imran/Murali + Sobers from McGrath/Hadlee/Lillee/Warne + Kallis. I reckon those bowling attacks pretty much cancel each other out with Bradman & Gilchrist giving SH a slight advantage overall.

    Would have Hayden instead of Trumper and Miller instead of Kallis. Batting will take a bit of a hit but still stronger than NH XI but the bowling will improve a lot. Lillee, McGrath. Hadlee and Miller for pace, and Warne for spin - 4 prong pace attack + spinner.

    B. Richards
    Hayden
    Bradman (c)
    Ponting/ G Chappell
    G Pollock
    Miller
    Gilchrist (wk)
    Hadlee
    Warne
    Lillee
    McGrath

    Grrr, can't believe I forgot about Miller , totally agree with that amendment. Would still have Trumper or even Morris > Hayden though.

    Might be cheating, but how about Bradman opening with Ponting and Chappell and 3/4?

    Also Bob Simpson averaged about 55-56 as opener, so he's in with a shout.

    Marshall > Hadlee
    Murali > Warne
    Ambrose > Lillee but Lilllee > Trueman
    Imran > Mcgrath
    Sobers = Kallis or Kallis slightly > Sobers

    All contentious but NH have a slightly stronger bowling line up.You are right about Gilly and Don giving SH a slight edge overall - in hindsight I would go for SH as well.

    ^ Miller replacing Kallis probably give SH a slight edge in bowling too

    7. Gilchrist > Knott
    8. Imran > Hadlee

    Or the another way to look at it is ranking them all which for me would be;

    1) Marshall
    2) Hadlee
    3) Ambrose/McGrath
    4) Lillee
    5) Imran
    6) Miller (sorry I've stolen Miller off Ikki & dropped Kallis )
    7) Sobers

    Can't separate Warne & Murali, both have good records in England.
