    Tendulkar
    Miandad
    Mushtaq

    Mushtaq for the balance and fifth option assuming we will select 3 pacers and 1 spinner next. Also as it's a subcontinent ATG XI, captain can rely back to double prong spin attack if required. I wouldn't mind either of Mushtaq or Vinoo for that matter. With either of them, team isn't losing much on batting but rather gaining more balance in the process.

    I completely agree.

    Incidently, this performance by Mushtaq against Clive Lloyd's team in 1977 is superb and could only be achieved by a handful of individuals;

    4th Test: West Indies v Pakistan at Port of Spain, Apr 1-6, 1977 | Cricket Scorecard | ESPN Cricinfo

    It was tempting to put Imran at No.6 because after batting 20 times in that position he averages 61.86 ! However, I still think that Imran is better suited to No.7 which seems a more natural place for him, and less likely to hyper-extend his talents.

    yeah also I believe Imran will lead the attack and will be the captain. It'll be too much burden if he has to come at no 6.

    With Imran at No.6 the team will probably end up with a 4 man pace attack and a single spin bowler.

    If Mushtaq is in the team you could pair him with Saqlain, maintain a strong middle-order batting line-up, and still have 3 ATG quicks to knock over the opposition's top order. IMO a 3-2 combination is inherently stronger than a 4-1 which tends to be repetitive and is less adaptive to pitch conditions.

    On the other hand, you could shorten the tail by playing Kapil Dev. The best keeper Syed Kirmani would then be able to be played. For example;

    06. Imran Khan
    07. Kapil Dev
    08. Syed Kirmani
    09. Wasim Akram
    10. Bishan Bedi
    11. Bhagwath Chandrasekhar

    This team needs all of imran, akram, waqar and kapil to form the pace attack and one spinner to support them. Not too many batting line-ups can dominate this attack. If dhoni keeps wickets and bats at no. 7 the batting is good enough to withstand any opposition.

    These are confirmed so far, and there is a tie between Imran and Inzamam for the 6th spot from what I counted.

    In that case the 6th spot should go to Imran because none of those specialist batsman bowl (I don't think that Sehwag's offies count). The team would be very much confined to a 4-man attack and therefore disadvantaged relative to the other ATG teams.

    can I change my vote for Azhar and vote Inzi?

    I really don't see how an SC XI will survive against a good quality opposition with only 5 frontline batsmen?
    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

    I don't think there has been an Adam Gilchrist type keeper in test from India or Pakistan
