    Reckon from the last 20 years Australia has produced 3 full teams of very high quality.

    4th team starts dropping off when you have to decide on Emery, Manou, Paine or Wade as keeper and a host of spinners who are not named Warne, MacGill, Miller. Tim May might actually be the next best, Lyon's start has moved into the mix too.

    Like this. The compensation for a specialist glovemen is dealt with well by a strong 10 and 11 and two genuine bowling all rounders. More interesting than the usual sides IMO.

    AWTA. Would be tempted to chuck in Murali and Mehala as well (the most common bowler and outfielder combination in test history)

    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

    Who would others pick as The Dead's wicketkeeper, and the Living's opening combination?

    Also, would you find a way to get Murali in the team?

    Ugly but effective XI

    Cook
    Graeme Smith
    Miandad
    Chanderpaul
    Steve Waugh (c)...arguable, but couldnt find another suitable batsman
    MS Dhoni
    Mike Procter
    Jeff Thomson
    Malinga
    Courtney Walsh
    Muralitharan

    Needed a better bowler than Malinga in there... Croft maybe? any suggessions?

    Chanderpaul is already in there.

    If Malinga is going to be replaced I think it should be by a batsman personally, or a predominately batting player anyway. Dhoni at 6 and Procter at 7 is blekhh.
