    The Professional XI

    If you wanted to build a side with tough, thoroughly professional cricketers (no fuss, no overt assholes, etc), what would it look like? People who carry themselves well (No drama off the field as well) and put in the work day in and day out and don't give an inch. Batsmen who stand up when no one else does, bowlers who will bend their back and bowl into the wind whether they are up by 500 or down by an innings.

    I'll start off: Border, Dravid, Waugh.

    Siddle - Big heart. Runs in all day, no matter what the score.
    Andy Flower - a world class bat head and shoulders above the rest of his side, and he always performed. Kept wickets when needed.

    Iain O'Brien - volunteered to bowl into the wind, won a test match with a dislocated finger
    Glenn McGrath - top three bowler of all time, and did it day in day out

    Obviusly he was the best player in the history of the planet but didn't always carry himself with the most calm of heads on the pitch - though I think that was just a few instances maybe so he probably belongs.

    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

    Kane Williamson seems to be a bit of a cricket nerd. Doesn't qualify performance-wise obviously.

    Dravid, Sangakkara, Gilchrist come to mind.
