    Damien Martyn


    1. Len Hutton
    2. Bruce Mitchell
    3. David Gower
    4. Mike Hussey
    5. Shivnarine Chanderpaul
    6. Clyde Walcott +
    7. Keith Miller
    8. Fazal Mahmood
    9. Jim Laker
    10. Alec Bedser
    11. Courtney Walsh

    12th man: Damien Martyn

    Not entirely sure whether to go with Hussey or Martyn for number 4. What's the general thought amongst you lot?

    I prefer Hussey for this particular team.

    Very solid opening pair but Gower is unpredictable. He can be sublime, but is just as likely to fail. Therefore, I think that you need a more solid batsman at No.4 who can stiiffin up the middle-order with Chanderpaul.

    Hussey or Chanderpaul would also work well with your attacking batsman Walcott and Miller and allow them to play shots. They would 'hang-around', rotate the strike, and enjoy watching their team-mate hit 4s.

    Lastly, both Hussey and Chanderpaul are capable of very long patient innings that can last well into the tail. I'm not sure about Damien Martyn though.
    "I strongly feel the ICC should take action to ban the doosra since it just cannot be bowled legally. Ashley Mallett has said the 'doosra is nothing but chucking' and Australian spinners, including Shane Warne, have raised an alarm against coaching it in Australia." - BISHAN BEDI (2010)

    To have everyone in the batting position that suits them best, I'd go

    1. Hutton
    2. Mitchell
    3, Walcott
    4. Gower
    5. Miller
    6. Chanderpaul
    7. Hussey
    8. Mahmood
    9. Laker
    10. Bedser
    11. Walsh


    Slightly unconventional, but looks like it'd work to me.

    OK, house full of guests just left. Great time. Now drunk.

    Do I want a batsman, bowler, or allrounder?

    Thinking with 9 remaining neurons.....

    Love your team KK. However, having a bloke at No.3 who can give the ball a tonking is important in my view. Hammond is a commanding player and therefore a perfect first drop.

    Sobers should be told to pull his finger out and bat a little higher at No.5.

    Dravid made his best innings at No.6 and is just the right man to protect the tail for your team. Or farm the strike to Hammond, Pietersen, or Sobers, as the case may be.

    But I'm happy to be wrong...
