    So, if you had to pick a team to win a test in only 3 or 4 days, who would you select?

    - Barry Richards
    - Victor Trumper
    - Don Bradman
    - Brian Lara
    - Viv Richards
    - Garry Sobers
    - Adam Gilchrist
    - Mitchell Johnson (2013/14 version)
    - Dale Steyn
    - Dennis Lillee
    - Murali

    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

    Both would probably get you quicker wickets than Imran since you are looking to wrap up the match in quick time. Of course under normal circumstances Imran is a better option

    Since he has played in only four games Barry would make it to the not-on-the-honor board XI for any ground in the world. He can open wth andy ganteaume. We can accept this as a standard practice and choose teams without them so that we can consider proper test cricketers also.
