    There is no way that Jager would name Miller at 6!

    I hate to admit it but with Gary and Malcolm included - it works.

    I rate Sobers second/third with the bat at the moment - Archie's just a tantalising idea that struggle to say no to

    How can Sobers be mood dependent? Also works better with Richards opening instead of the ultimate stonewaller Sutcliffe and Bradman in his natural position.
    Also Miller in the top order seriously weakens that batting line up unneccecerily, especially with Tallon in the side. Marshall also mood dependent and Davidson isn't.
    Very strange team.

    Well thinking rationally I'd always have Sobers. Not sure how Sutcliffe is 'the ultimate stonewaller' tbh.

    Also for the record the team I posted is not my absolute World XI, although the top 4 and wicketkeeper are spot on.

    Interesting that Jager picks Tallon based solely on his wicketkeeping - one of the very few areas of cricket there's no accurate stat you can use to determine one's ability.

    Your world team is closest to mine. I will replace Tendulkar and Hammond with G. Pollock and Hadlee. Will keep the other 9.

    We definitely have similar ways of thinking. Pollock vs Tendulkar was a close call. Went for Tendulkar simply because he has been fortunate enough to have the opportunity to prove himself at the highest level all over the world and for a much longer period of time than Pollock. Hadlee would be my first choice replacement for Imran, Marshall or Barnes if any of them got injured.

    Since Barry Richards is in the team then we may as well re-establish the Richards-Pollock partnership to see if they can go one better than their famous Durban knock. Also, Knott is in the side for Tallon because he's just as good at keeping but can bat.

    02. Barry Richards
    03. Don Bradman
    04. Graeme Pollock
    05. Keith Miller*
    06. Garfield Sobers
    07. Mike Procter
    08. Alan Knott †
    09. Alan Davidson
    10. Shane Warnie
    11. Malcolm Marshall

    Ah, that's better. Order in the Universe restored.
