    Test Team of Last Two Decades

    Pretty much all my cricket watched in the said period. I started watching in 1991.

    My team would be -

    Sehwag
    Hayden
    Lara
    Tendulkar (captain)
    Ponting
    Kallis
    Flintoff
    Gilchrist
    Pollock
    Akram
    Murali

    C'mon, Mcgrath simply has to be there.
    The speed at which a fielding team gets through the innings is overrated.

    Pollock is awesome as well and can bat too. The batting has huge depth with Akram coming in at 10. Akram has a test highest score of 257.

    At the end of the day, Flintoff was a pretty average all-rounder for all bar 18 months or so of his career and shouldnt go close to a team of the decade let alone this

    Also, given the depth of the batting, you might as well pick the best bowlers so punt Pollock and select Ambrose or McGrath

    Matthew Hayden
    Brian Lara
    Sachin Tendulkar
    Steve Waugh (c)
    Jacques Kallis
    Adam Gilchrist (wk)
    Shane Warne
    Waqar Younis
    Curtley Ambrose
    Glenn McGrath

    Few interesting choices in there, like Warne over Murali (the batting clinches it) and Waugh over Ponting (batting at 5, captaincy and team dynamics). Waqar Ambrose and McGrath would make a helluva pace trio.

    If you want to go conventional, * for captain.

    Athlai doesn't lie. And he doesn't do sarcasm either, so you know it's true!

    Well said the owner of the house she has a most idiotick run.'

    What about a team of the 70's + 80's to take them on? Who'd win?
