    Hmm. Hard to split their bowling but Trumble is the better batsman (considering era) and has a really good catches to matches ratio. Therefore Trumble

    The book Test Cricket Lists by Graham Dawson compiled a list of A to Z teams. I'll try and copy some later on. My copy is only current up to 1997, so some changes since then.

    1 Ken Barrington
    2 Gary Kirsten
    3 Kumar Sangakarra
    4 Jacques Kallis
    5 Rohan Kanhai
    6 Keith Miller
    7 Imran Khan
    8 Alan Knott
    9 Kapil Dev
    10 Anil Kumble
    11 Ken Higgs

    Okay, so Barrington is not usually an opener,but he did open a few times in Test Cricket. Am I overlooking someone instead of Higgs? I love how this team has 4 gun all rounders!

    WG Grace
    Sunil Gavaskar
    George Headley
    Greg Chappell
    Graeme Pollock
    Garry Sobers
    Adam Gilchrist
    George Lohmann
    Lance Gibbs
    Joel Garner
    Glenn McGrath

    12th man: Garth le Roux

    I'd back that team against any of the rest.

    We are also leaving out some pretty good opening batsmen: Gooch, Greenidge, Graeme Smith, Geoff Boycott

    On reflection the other sides are damn good too. But the Gs have the best batting line up I reckon.

    I forgot to mention thaty sub fielder is of course Gary Pratt

    Yep the G's batting lineup is awesome.

    My favourite team is the K team, it's probably not the best team on show, but I can't see this team getting defeated much (they should hold on for draws).

    I absolutely love this, and will be doing it in my head all day. I will resist the temptation to visit cricket archive though - as all of us must. This matters too much to cheat.

    I forgot about :Kevin Pietersen, who's better KP or Kanhai? I think it's tough, but I naturally normally go for the cricketer who has finished his career.

    Man Kapil Dev at 9 is just awesome.
