    Its hard to see a team which should move places. Just out of left field I quite like the World F XI. I think quite a fair few of the players in this XI are better players than just looking quickly at their averages.

    Shane Bond

    Swings the ball at pace, top quality player aside from the obvious impediment.

    Neil Adcock

    Rapid, dangerous and menacing. Qualities I love in a fast bowler.

    George Lohmann

    Obviously a very classy bowler in his time. Not sure where really to rate him, but would love to slide him into this team. It will probably also help this side with the simming process, with his stats!

    Saeed Anwar

    Classy batsman, scores in a 360 arena.

    Trevor Goddard

    Great leader, and willed himself towards victory and contribution however he could, much respect.

    Bond, Tyson and Fazal would make a pace attcak for all wickets and conditions

    For the opening bats Stewie Dempster and Roy Fredericks, not because Fredericks was particularly good, but he was great entertainment

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

    Batting votes
    Anwar- fantastic left-handed stylist who is often underrated.
    Barlow- about time he got picked, his stubborn resistance will go well with Anwar's flair.

    Bowling votes
    Tyson- could have been an all-time great had it not been for injury. Very, very fast by all reports. Unstoppable in the second innings, too.
    Lohmann- often unplayable with his medium-fast seamers.
    Spofforth- definitely a fast and furious bowler who has earned his place in history with the nickname of 'demon bowler'.
    Oh for a strong arm and a walking stick
