    Representatives XI

    Becauses XIs are fun, and I have time to kill. A silly but interesting excercise:

    Who would you pick in a current World XI if you were only allowed a maximum of one player per country? Obviously this includes a few of your favourite associate players.

    Test:

    Shane Watson
    Chris Gayle
    Kumar Sangakkara
    Sachin Tendulkar
    Ross Taylor
    Ryan ten Doeschate
    Shakib Al Hasan
    Graeme Swann
    Dale Steyn
    Umar Gul
    Hamid Hassan

    ODI:

    Chris Gayle
    Sachin Tendulkar
    Kumar Sangakkara
    AB De Villiers
    Mike Hussey
    Ryan ten Doeschate
    Shakib Al Hasan
    Dan Vettori
    Umar Gul
    Hamid Hassan
    James Anderson
    And we still haven't walked in the glow of each other's majestic presence.

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "The committee discussed the issue of illegal bowling actions, and believed that there are a number of bowlers currently employing suspect actions in international cricket, and that the ICC's reporting and testing procedures are not adequately scrutinising these bowlers."
    - Even the ICC's own official press release thinks things must change

    Slight bias may come into it but he's a good bowler imo.

    The Steyn/Kallis dilemma sucks alright. Have selected Steyn myself, purely for the balance of the side despite rating Kallis the better cricketer.

    Test XI

    1. Sehwag (IND)
    2. Joyce (IRE)
    3. Ponting (AUS)
    4. Chanderpaul (WI)
    5. Sangakkara + (SL)
    6. Ryder (NZ)
    7. Ten Doeschate (NED)
    8. Shakib (BAN)
    9. Steyn (SA)
    10. Gul (PAK)
    11. Anderson (ENG)

    Good batting depth.

    Sanga isn't the best off spinner in the history of cricket? News to me.

    Hmm nah, Tamim and Kallis are definitely viable alternatives depending on the balance you want. And I didn't pick RTD.
