    Ha ha, great side that - and a hell of a testament to Tendulkar's career.

    Based on performances since I was born:

    1. Virender Sehwag
    2. Rahul Dravid
    3. Brian Lara
    4. Sachin Tendulkar
    5. Jacques Kallis
    6. Steve Waugh
    7. Adam Gilchrist
    8. Shaun Pollock
    9. Curtly Ambrose
    10. Muttiah Muralitharan
    11. Glenn McGrath

    I know I cheated making Dravid open but he's been so much better than all the openers IMO that I couldn't resist.

    Based on cricket I've seen/followed:

    1. Virender Sehwag
    2. Rahul Dravid
    3. Kumar Sangakkara
    4. Sachin Tendulkar
    5. Jacques Kallis
    6. Brian Lara
    7. Adam Gilchrist
    8. Shaun Pollock
    9. Dale Steyn
    10. Muttiah Muralitharan
    11. Glenn McGrath

    Not that different as you can see. Again cheated with Dravid, but yeah, same reasoning obviously. Smith and Hayden obviously a bit stiff, as was Warne who I'm sure I'd bring in at times dependant on conditions etc. I also found it hard to not find a place for Chanderpaul.

    I just realised that I managed to completely forget Ponting for no particular reason. He can open with Dravid.

    An Australian team based on cricket I've seen would be interesting. Most of it would pick itself but Hussey, Martyn and Clarke would be competing for two places and I'd have to choose between Lee and Clark for my third seamer; two such different cricketers in so many ways. I'd even be tempted to chuck Watto in ahead of Langer so I could pick MacGill as my fourth bowler.

    You can scratch the fast bowlers of that list because you can't compare a batsman carreer with a fast bowlers carreer that is insane

    And the start before and after don't make much senseless How many started playing at 16? Not many silly comparisons really. Pull list of cricketers who had 23 year carreer.

    Slightly biased I had a 'Merv the Swerve' t-shirt as a youngster. Would be interested to see JBMAC's side.
