    Current Test XI

    I don't know if this exercise has been done before but let's give it a try.

    Pick two test playing nations, from which one has to be the country that you support and the other can be any of the remaining test playing nations. Make up a current Test XI from your selected countries.

    For me Pakistan and South Africa.

    Smith
    Amla
    Younis
    Kallis
    Yousuf
    Misbah (c)
    De Villiers (wk)
    Afridi/Ajmal
    Gul
    Steyn
    Morkel

    If Asif and Amir were playing, I would have them in for Morkel and Gul respectively.

    Never in a million years would I have thought Brumby to admit this!!!!!!

    Turbs had a thread about team merging quite recently, worth a look.

    As I said in there, England & South Africa seem to compliment each other extremely well at the moment. Perhaps not coincidentally.

    Smith
    Cook
    Trott
    Kallis
    KP/Bell
    De Villiers
    Prior
    Swann
    Steyn
    Morkel
    Anderson

    I'm always suspicious of shops that sell bait.

    England and Australia

    Cook
    Strauss
    Trott
    Pietersen
    Bell
    Hussey
    Prior
    Bresnan
    Broad
    Swann
    Anderson

    Good god, the 10-1 ratio would have been the same the other way round in the 90's and early 00's with probably Thorpe as the only player to get in the Aussie side. Shows how it can turn.

    This looks like a really good combination. Good blend of attacking and defensive batsmen,
    bowling looks awesome aswell, Taylor,Edwards,Roach and Vettori along with the part timers Gayle, Ryder and Williamson.
    I wonder why WI have never played Jerome Taylor, Edwards and Roach together in their test 11.

    Because it would involve one/two of them coming out in a stretcher...
