Ok - here's a test for every cricket fan...
If (by some complete miracle) the ICC organised a test match between a Northern Hemisphere XI versus a Southern Hemisphere XI who would make your cut? (a question bound to generate some disagreements...) So basically, it's Australia, South Africa, New Zealand and Zimbabwe Vs. England, the four asians (SL, Ind., Pak., Ban.) and the West Indies.
Here's my teams (Assuming 6 batters, wicketkeeper, 1 spinner and 3 pace):
12th - Thorpe or Vaas
Pollock (c) (o2)
12th - Gillespie
Obviously some players arn't in their regular batting positions, but were too good to leave out...
