    what do people think?
    Pretty fair. I'd normally make the harsh call on Weekes and include Hunte as a specialist opener, but given the disparity between the two, and Walcott for that matter as well, it's not the worst idea to convert one of the middle order into a makeshift opener.

    I'd have Ambrose ahead of Roberts, and probably Holding ahead of Gibbs. The third and fourth seamers are a bit of a raffle given the depth of talent.

    Dujon for keeper for mine as well - I'm not a fan of the Walcott as keeper scenario, always feels like a bit of a cheat to me.

    I normally have, therefore:
    Greenidge
    Hunte
    Headley
    Richards
    Lara
    Sobers
    Dujon+
    Marshall
    Holding
    Garner
    Ambrose

    Welcome to CW by the way.

    Following my recent rejig of my world alltime XI, I came out with:
    Hobbs
    Gavaskar
    Bradman(c)
    Richards
    Sobers
    Gilchrist+
    Imran(vc)
    Hadlee
    Marshall
    Warne
    Murali

    Not only can I not seem any team you care to compile, excluding those players, maintaining a winning record against that team, I think it could hypothetically tour the world, month in month out, with its depth of bowling, without ever dropping a series.
