    Athlai doesn't lie. And he doesn't do sarcasm either, so you know it's true!

    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.

    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.

    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.
