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!

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

1. Rohan Kanhai, AB de Villiers, Eddie Paynter
2. Wilfred Rhodes
Kevin Pietersen and Stan McCabe finish 1,2 with Chanderpaul and Kanhai tied. I think the top 2 batsman should bat at 3,4 so I went for Shivnarine Chanderpaul to bat at 5. The fact that he's a lefty adds to the balance of the side too.
Hugh Tayfield finished ahead of Kumble by one vote.

1) Select someone for the number 6 position
2) Select a bowler for the vacant number 8 position. He doesn't have to bat at 8..

Aubrey Faulkner - good enough to bat at 6 plus serves as a fifth bowler.
Jeff Thompson - for a G XI to compete with the other sides, they need something to differentiate them; provide something nobody else has. Thompson does that with pure speed.
Aubrey Faulkner- Simply too good to be still available.
Jason Gillespie- Very under rated and a great support bowler.
Peter May and Brian Statham
Oh for a strong arm and a walking stick
Faulkner easily the best cricketer left. Definately a batsman first when you consider his numbers against those of his associates, so can bat #6.
Maurice Tate for #8. Test centurion and county double-centurion, and yet Wisden called him the founder of modern seam bowling.
