    Hammond's team would beat Bradman's team.
    Sunil Gavaskar – Len Hutton – Don Bradman – Garry Sobers – Viv Richards – Keith Miller – Imran Khan – Jock Cameron – Richie Benaud – Malcolm Marshall – Bill O’Reilly

    Never mind Pollock (over-rated), Rice (no tests) , or Weekes (no wickets). Where's Trevor?

    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

    Ok below this is not the ATG Aus team I would pick

    Hayden
    Barnes
    Bradman
    G Chappell
    Ponting
    S Waugh
    Glichrist
    Miller
    Davidson
    Lindwall
    Warne

    But the challnege for other world teams is to pick a side that has an aggregate average that is over 500 (the above list is at 517)

    Keeper has to have kept for the majority of his career.
    4 bowlers have to have averages of 25 or under and taken over 100 wickets.

    With a pre-WWII XI, how many spinners would you play? I'm thinking three frontliners...

    1. Hobbs (57)
    2. Sutcliffe (61)
    3. Hutton (57)
    4. Hammond (58)
    5. Barrington (59)
    6. Paynter (59)
    7. Prior (43)
    8. Botham (34)
    9. Rhodes (30)
    10. Trueman (22)
    11. Larwood (19)

    499

    Edit: Turns out you can do it by picking Henry Wood (68) to keep wicket, which also means you don't have to skimp on the bowling. Bit of a cheat though.
