    In regards to your side Tangy, I'd switch Jardine to 5, making Hammond first drop and Compo following him in at 4. I'd also easily select Trueman over Statham, as much as I admire the latter.
    Oh for a strong arm and a walking stick

    I wonder what McCabe could have achieved with the bat had he not had to open the bowling in 19 of his 39 matches.

    That being said, Chappell ranks before him in my eyes very comfortably

    Yes DRJ has to be a movable feast, as he was never much of a dasher - as to Fiery Fred I might in certain circumstances agree with you, but not when I have my red rose tinted spectacles on (which is 95% of the time), and on a more practical level I can't see Fred getting on with DRJ, or wanting to be Larwood and Botham's straight man

    Imagine Fred's anger when he's forced to bowl into the wind while Lol steams in from the other end

    I think McCabe is very possibly the most underrated player the game has seen, and indeed a while ago, I suspect before your time here, I wrote a feature explaining why - still it's his own fault as, rather like Keith Miller, he couldn't really be bothered if the going was too easy

    Will have a go with an SA XI although I'm bound to miss out someone!

    1)B.Richards
    2)Smith
    3)G.Pollock
    4)Kallis
    5)Nourse
    6)Faulkner
    7)Proctor
    8)Boucher (+)
    9)S.Pollock
    10)Donald
    11)Adcock

    It's really impossible to pick the last 3 - Donald and Adcock were tough, but the real biggy was Shaun P vs Steyn vs Peter P. Went for Shaun based on the fact that he would give a variety to the bowling line up but on a different day my choice of last 3 spots would probably be vastly different.

    I'll take a shot at the Pakistan ATXI

    Hanif Mohammad
    Saeed Anwar
    Inzamam ul Haq
    Javed Miandad
    Mohammad Yousuf
    Salim Malik
    Imran Khan (c)
    Wasim Bari
    Wasim Akram
    Waqar Younis
    Saqlain/Ajmal/Qadir

    12th Man: Shoaib Akhtar

    A pretty formidable line up
    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

    Too harsh on Faulkner. But can't keep Steyn out any longer, and can't have Faulkner as the only spinner (in my mind he was a batting all-rounder).

    Why the Graeme Smith hate? Record is very good and would captain team to boot. Trending Steyn over Pollock. Would keep Faulkner as Kallis can always help if more pace is required.

    Richard is/was a fan of Fat Gray which, to some, is of itself reason enough to dislike him.

    Herbie Taylor worthy of a mention, imo anyway

    So many other good reasons to dislike Dicko too tho, tbf.





































    Yes, this post was in...
    Cricket Web's 2013/14 Premier League Tipping Champion

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."
    - Barney Ronay on Mario Balotelli
