    I'd be shocked if any agree with that reasoning.
    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    Richard probably does.
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    Anyone want to join the Society?

    Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.

    I can assure anyone I don't. All-time XIs, as Liam recently stated, are about good players, not who might make the best team.

    So Matthew Hayden is better than Arthur Morris , Bob Simpson , Bill Lawry , Geoff Marsh , Sid Barnes , Bill Woodful , Ian Redpath , Mark Taylor , the list goes on , he's got a good average but you must take into account the quality of pitches & standard of opposition he's made runs against compared to the guys listed above.

    I was a huge fan of Mark Waugh , if I had to chose the XI I wanted to watch then I'd pick him , but for the XI I wanted to win I think chosing Waugh ahead of Border , Walters , G.Chappell , I.Chappell , Mcabe , Keith Miller , Ponting , Warwick Armstrong , David Boon , Charlie Macartney , Victor Trumper & many others may be pushing it a little.

    It's a big one to bite into for a first post, but in for a penny...

    You really have to go to the books, and not just the statistics, but also the impact that the players had on the game. This, IMO, warrants Trumper's selection in an Australian all-time side (and justifies Warne's despite the statistics). So my all time Australian side:

    Trumper
    Ponsford
    Bradman
    G.Chappell
    Border
    Miller
    Lindwall
    Healy
    Warne
    Lillee
    O'Reilly



    other squad members:
    S.Waugh
    Tallon
    Spofforth

    I was sort of hoping not to have to answer that question. I think I'd have given it to Waugh if he'd have made the first 11, but I think in honour of the extreme improvement made under his captaincy I'd give it to Border.

    Thanks iamdavid,

    I like you batting line-up, but I think your bowlers are too recent. Mine would look a bit like this:

    1.S.Gavaskar
    2.J.Hobbs
    3.*D.Bradman
    4.G.Headley
    5.G.Sobers
    6.B.Richards
    7.+C.Walcott
    8.R.Hadlee
    10.D.Lillee
    10.S.F.Barnes
    11.W.O'Reilly

    Other squad members:
    Imran Khan
    L.Hutton
    S.Tendulkar
    M.Marshall

    Again, I laboured long and hard over captaincy. Big temptation to leave Hobbs out for Hutton, but I think this is the better side.
