An attack of Marshall-Procter-Snow, a solid opening pair, and Tendulkar in the middle-order already make this very strong team kyear. Be good if you can top it off with a couple of strong picks.
Barnes in this match revealed himself once more as one of the most remarkable bowlers that this country has ever produced. He has a positively wonderful command of the leg break.... His great height makes it difficult for the batsman to follow the flight of the ball. He is useful on every kind of wicket, whereas few bowlers of his pace are able to bowl on a sticky wicket. - JACK HOBBS, 'My Cricket Memories' (1924)
AWTA. At first glance I reckon kyear's looks the strongest of the lot so far.
01. BRUCE MITCHELL (R8: Leg-spinner)
03. GEORGE HEADLEY ( R1:Illegal lmmigrant)
04. KUMAR SANGAKKARA (R4: National Blackout)
05. PETER MAY (R5:Captained Against)
07. ALAN KNOTT (R7: Fredfertang)
09. HEDLEY VERITY (R3: Merchant)
10. DALE STEYN (R2: 9th Wicket)
11. WAYNE DANIEL (R6: Debut)
Your team is also very strong Dan. I'll be interested to see who you manage to get for your fourth bowler.
Like Jager's and Watson's teams thus far, though the last ywo picks could swing everything. Only gripe though is Watson's openers, don't think I would be able to watch them bat together.
Hanif was the first star of Pakistan cricket, the "Little Master" who played the longest innings in Test history - his 970-minute 337 against West Indies in Bridgetown in 1957-58 - then followed it a year later with the highest first-class innings to that point, 499 run out. With such feats, broadcast on radio, he turned cricket in Pakistan from the preserve of the Lahore educated elite into the mass sport it is today. Although famous for his immaculate defence and never hitting the ball in the air, Hanif could also attack, and was probably the originator of the reverse-sweep. His versatility extended to captaining and keeping wicket, and bowling right- and left-handed in Test cricket. But in addition to being the jack of all trades, he was the master of one.

Virender Sehwag and I promise not to pick another Indian
I'm always suspicious of shops that sell bait.
Sehwag to open with Hutton. Nice combo.
Jager > Dan > Monk > Watson > KK
Leaving the 'dismissed (by) previous' clause this late may not have been the greatest of ideas, in hindsight.
I'm leaving the "high score on debut" to last because I cbf to do the research
Really wanted KP.
Oh for a strong arm and a walking stick
