    Atherton
    Gooch
    Gower
    Thorpe
    Pietersen
    Prior
    Botham
    Flintoff
    Swann
    Anderson/Gough
    Willis

    Rather slim pickings on the bowling, especially if I'm not allowed Willis.

    Willis is allowed and that's a good team. I'm thinking personally that I would already rate Cook above Atherton.

    Boycott retired in '82 so I'd take him over all of them if I'm allowed to include him.

    "Predictably, the ending of his international career did not end the argument about Pietersen's merits, as an army of informed commentators and Piers Morgan weighed in to defend or attack him."

    Ha, hadn't realised Deadly finished in '82 as well - in that case I reckon this would be my team too, with just Anderson to potentially replace Gough.

    Yep, agreed. Definitely Anderson though for mine.

    Sorry if already been done, but make a best possible XI using one player from each Test nation, and the eleventh from an associate. All time.

    For me:
    1)Hobbs
    2)T.Iqbal
    3)Bradman
    4)Tendulkar
    5)Kallis
    6)ten Doeschate
    7)Flower (+)
    8)Akram
    9)Hadlee
    10)Muralitharan
    11)Holding

    Disclaimer: I am a biased South African. Anything I say is likely to have something in it that ultimately favours the Proteas.

    Bart King so much better than ten Doeschate, surely. Then you can pick Sobers instead of Holding.

    EDIT: Wait, why the **** did you pick Holding ahead of Marshall anyway?

    1st XI
    Hutton | Hobbs | Bradman* | Richards^ | Tendulkar | Sobers5^ | Gilchrist+ | Khan3 | Marshall1 | Warne4^ | McGrath2
    2nd XI
    Sutcliffe | Gavaskar* | Headley | Chappell^ | Lara^ | Kallis5^ | Knott+ | Hadlee3 | Ambrose2 | Lillee1 | Muralitharan4
    3rd XI
    Greenidge | Richards^ | Ponting^ | Pollock | Hammond^ | Worrell5* | Waite+ | Akram3 | Steyn1 | Holding2 | O'Reilly4
    4th XI
    Morris | Simpson^ | Sangakkara | Weekes^ | Border*^ | Walcott+ | Faulkner5 | Laker4 | Trueman1 | Garner3 | Donald2

    Couldn't think of a replacement for King, so he maintains his place in both XIs.

    Well Mike Denness played for Scotland so he probably counts if you're looking for a cheaty associate option.
