    Combined XI

    A few of us did these in one of the threads in CC. Be interesting to see what people put now and then how they evolve as the series progresses.

    Cook
    Sehwag
    Trott
    Tendulkar
    Laxman
    Bell
    Prior+
    Swann
    Khan
    Tremlett
    Anderson

    Prior V Dhoni the closest call for me.

    Interested in why people are picking Dhoni. For captaincy alone is a fair call, but I'd have Prior given his run scoring lately. Rest of it's straightforward.

    What if all the switches get stuck on 'destroy'?

    yes Captaincy+Batting = Dhoni

    For the case of only Batting = Prior!!!

    A Prior-Dhoni thread could be an interesting read. Might as well make use of the subforum

    Cook
    Gambhir
    Trott
    Pietersen
    Laxman
    Bell
    Prior
    Harbhajan
    Tremlett
    Anderson
    Zaheer

    I'd have Sehwag, Tendulkar and Swann ahead of Gambhir, Pietersen and Harbhajan, but I'm going for who I think will have the better series and it'll be interesting to see how right I am in a couple of months.

    Pietersen will suck big time if Yuvraj plays. Or if Bhajji bowls left handed.

    Dhoni > Prior in all conditions on average.

    Has to be something like this, really, not much to debate besides the keeper. Maybe you could find a way to shoehorn in Gambhir in place of Bell, but meh.

    Yeah,maybe Gambhir could sneak in ahead of Bell but that can upset the balance a bit.

    Prior has a very good record in every country except South Africa, IIRC. And he has three centuries in the last year to Dhoni's none.

    For Prior
    Prior is (everso slightly) younger, has a better batting average, more hundreds in fewer games.

    For Dhoni
    11 662 people like the cricinfo profile of Dhoni whereas only 147 people like the profile of Prior
    If I only just posted the above post, please wait 5 mins before replying as there will be edits
