Davo would make my list even if I only named 20 I think.
You can tell Crowe doesn't earn a living from writing as he has conspicuously failed to make any controversial selections - was expecting to see Ewen Chatfield's name there
And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW
Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta

Ashes (Australia + England)
Yes, no Miller or Botham. With a tail of Warne/Lillee/Barnes/McGrath, I went with Border for the extra stability.
Asia (India + Pakistan + Sri Lanka + Bangladesh)
Managed to have both Imran and Kapil in here, really think this team has great chemistry.
Rest of the World
This team does fall a bit short on spin, though both Sobers and Procter can turn it. Nobody from WI/SA/NZ/ZIM comes anywhere near Warne or Murali anyway.

Sub continent team probably the hardest to select, all three are really strong teams. Hard to call a winner.

Oh **** forgot Pollock. Oh and also, don't have much of a thing for Viv due to him only averaging 45 for the entire second half of his career...
And Pollock didn't get a chance to decline because he career lasted 20 Tests over 5 years? As for Viv averaging 45 over the second half of his career, how many averaged more over that period and compare the bowlers he faced even during that time to the ones faced by Hammond and Pollock, who somehow managed to miss facing every great fast bowler of his era and when he did face Lillee, he basically said Pollock wasn't comfortable vs the short stuff. Hammond for his part struggled against the only real pace attack he faced and it wasn't that great.
If Viv had retired after the same amount of tests as Chappell (when he admittedly should have) his average would also have been over 53 and if he hadn't missed two years in his absolute prime when he was playing WSC, his record would have been even more impressive.
To each their own, I just don't get the logic.
Who would win guys?
