    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.
    Len Hutton - Jack Hobbs - Ted Dexter - David Gower - Walter Hammond - Frank Woolley - Ian Botham - Alan Knott - Hedley Verity - John Snow - Fred Trueman

    Victor Trumper - Bill Lawry - Don Bradman - Greg Chappell - Allan Border - Keith Miller - Monty Noble - Don Tallon - Shane Warne - Dennis Lillee - Glenn McGrath

    AWTA. At first glance I reckon kyear's looks the strongest of the lot so far.

    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.

    With Boyc's holding up one end Imran would give Hanif the green-light to attack. Thought about Majid for sometime, but I think that Hanif is the better batsman overall by a significant margin;

    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.

    It will be interesting to see if one of the (remaining) modern time legend will be picked or not...

    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.

    Yeah, I'm in the same boat. Obviously there are players I want, but I'm relying on luck to land them.
