    Interesting mixture of the great and not-so-great there.

    Just the first players you could think of, or were you trying to actually put together the best team possible?

    Because yet another person leaving out O'Reilly after I already pointed it out would get on my nerves.

    Can't believe Howe_zat had the sheer nerve to post this team without reading through my 3 elevens first.

    So many good openers to choose from. And SLA bowlers.

    Oddly enough, I put down the first 10 names I could think of and then had to google a spinner, in an impressive showing of inadvertently ignoring you.

    That's a filthy bowling attack. But surely there must be room in there somewhere for the wizardry of IDK Salisbury?

    20 wickets at 76.95 in 15 Tests

    And yet you still didn't include the greatest combination of right hand opening batsman and slow left arm bowler in history.

    Done.

    Assuming a timeless Test (which it would need to be with the 'bowling' attacks on display), who, aside from the batsmen's averages, would emerge as the victors in a contest between my Left Arm Filth XI and my Right Hand Gash XI?

    The Filth have comfortably the better bowling. But the Gash have the batting. Might be quite good to watch.

    However the thought of the Gash bowling ad infinitum to the likes of Shastri and Border starts to make the Roebuck Leap seem like a blessed escape.
