    Heavily Australian, but hey, can you blame me?
    Botham's got to be in there for his early Ashes exploits... would have him in there for Lillee...

    To clarify, when I say Ashes, I just mean a team made of Aussie/English players. Can't really see a reason for putting in Botham over Lillee, the team already has great batting depth with Miller/Gilchrist/Warne.

    If even you think something is nostalgic enough to warrant a disclaimer, then oh my. Do I even want to read what follows??

    Same theory but Aus/Eng sides. Watchability is key in selection here:

    - Jackson
    - Trumper
    - G. Chappell
    - McCabe
    - Miller
    - Kippax
    - Tallon
    - Lindwall
    - Warne
    - Lillee
    - Mailey


    - Hobbs
    - Ranji
    - Gower
    - Hammond
    - Compton
    - Woolley
    - Botham
    - Evans
    - Larwood
    - Trueman
    - Barnes

    Not trying to be a prick, genuinely curious here, how do you have nostalgia about players you have never seen play?!
    If you were that old, and that kind, and the very last of your kind, you couldn't just stand back and watch children cry.

    Can't answer on his behalf, but there is footage of most of those players available. Also, written word can paint a picture.

    Ashes, I'd say. S.C has slightly weaker batting and ROW has slightly weaker bowling imo.

    Marshall, Ambrose and Hadlee best seam attack of the lot though I would say.

    Mushtaq Mohammad a little of of place as well, given the stature of the other players in these sides.

    Really would replace Tayfield with Holding, Garner or Procter, but know most people here likes to have spinners in their teams.

    No arguments here, but Tayfield is really nothing special when the other teams have Warne and Murali, not to mention Barnes (who I envision as O'Reilly-like, perhaps faster). Mushtaq, compared with Miller and Sobers does seem kinda out of place, but who else is there? S.C has a keeping edge though :P

    Would probably just play the 4 bowlers and have Dravid.
