    Yeah especially given that Gayle's ineligible now, and they don't have a quality spinner, they'd deffo go for Sobers or Viv.

    Sobers > Sammy.

    Every 5 years we have an election and have to decide who are the least obnoxious out of all the men. Then one gets in and they age really quickly. Which is always fun to watch.

    I'd go:

    India: Kapil
    Pakistan:Imran
    Australia:Bradman
    England: Botham/Flintoff
    WI : Sobers
    NZ: Hadlee
    SL: Murali
    SA: Donald

    I know Kapil is the logical choice for India, but Mankad wouldn't be a bad shout either. We get an upgrade on Harbhajan and a vastly superior batsman at that. Plus Mankad also serves as a backup opening option that puts the likes of Vijay and Mukund out of business. He was a freak, Mankad. It's win-win all the way.

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

    imo tahir will turn that from a problem to a strength.

    WI definitely lead good leadership like Lloyd's
    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta

    Hammond - we need someone who can cope when conditions are more challenging for batting. He also gives us a 5th bowling option iirc.

    They need a better opener to partner Smith as well - I'd say they'd go for Barry Richards.
    Personally just think the guy would be immense in Test match cricket, accurate never give runs away and a perfect foil for Morkel and Steyn.
    Do I contradict myself?

    I have already said Bradman for the Aussies. AS FOR THE REST CHEW ON THESE GUYS.
    ENGLAND: Lord Ted Dexter dour tough strong impo good leader
    INDIA: Engineer best keeper I ahve seen from there punishing bat team man
    PAKISTAN: Imran Khan good leader thinking cricketer not afraid to experiment
    WEST INDIES: Toss up here.Frank Worrell for his batting and leadership or Wes Hall for his fire ,determination and never give upmanship
    ZIMBABWE: Andy Flower this is self explanatory
    SOUTH AFRICA: Hugh Tayfield match winner in his own right and the team need a good quality spinner who is consistent
    SRI LANKA: A young Jayasuria brilliant bat turn back the hands of time to when he debuted and he would lift this team

    Pretty good list but why Jayasuriya over Muralitharan given the fact that SL have always lacked firepower in the bowling department?

    For the Aussie team, I'd go for Alan Davidson, that way we'd get to see the back of Johnson.

    I am on record in several places on this forum as being a "non believer" in chuckers being included in great of whatever. That is my personal opinion only and has got me into strife here before.That's all the correspondence I will enter into. Sorry if i give offence

    " Davo" would be a good selection.Actually if memory serves me correctly he became, in the tied test at the gabba, the first test cricketer to take 10 wickets and score over a 100 runs in a test.But by dropping Clarke for Bradman you are replacing a batsman with the same ilk.

    Murali or Vaas please. Even a Ravi Ratnayake or a Rumesh Ratnayake will be some valuable addition to SL bowling line up.
    Diuretics are used to look good at TV shows

    I played for 20 years in the Lankan team, I did not have any problems as a Tamil - Muralidaran
