    the first two picks are easy.

    Tendulkar
    Miandad

    the next one is tough. Imran Khan is porbably batting too high at 6, but if Dev and a good keeper/batsman are selected I think it may be manageable. Therfore..

    Imran Khan to bat at 6

    Perhaps we should've just made Engineer open instead of Sehwag.

    Sanga isn't the best off spinner in the history of cricket? News to me.

    If only Sanga was Ind-Pak the team would have great balance. I might be tempted to pick Inzi @6 and get Kapil for Waqar. Waqar real value is with the old ball but with Imran and Wasin already there that area seems to be covered. Also Kapil could do the role of the workhorse allowing Wasim and Imran to keep charging in whenever they are required.

    There's no way you could leave Waqar out.

    I'd rather Waqar in than Kapil, with Imran down at 7 or 8, and the attack being

    Wasim
    Waqar
    Imran
    Spinner

    Will change my vote for #6 from Imran to Inzamam

    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

    It seems we have these options available now-

    1. Sunil Gavaskar
    2. Virender Sehwag
    3. Rahul Dravid
    4. Sachin Tendulkar
    5. Javed Miandad
    6. Imran Khan / Inzamam / Imran / Mushtaq
    7. Kapil Dev / Imran Khan / Engineer / Imran
    8. Syed Kirmani / Syed Kirmani / Wasim / Kirmani
    9. Wasim Akram / Wasim / Waqar / Wasim
    10. Waqar Younis / Waqar / A Spinner / Waqar
    11. A Spinner / A Spinner / 2nd Spinner / A Spinner

    For first option, along with Imran, Wasim and Waqar, Kapil's addition is a bit overkill for me. For second option, fifth bowler is an issue. For third option, there is not much batting depth in the line up although bowling combination is great with frontline 3 pace and 2 spin options. Fourth option is the best combination because the team has got everything and can't find any weakness there. Just my two cents.

    I agree. Your option 4 is the most balanced team. You've got the 3 'must have' fast-bowlers, 2 contrasting spinners, the best keeper to come out of Asia, and excellent batting depth. Still miss Kapil Dev though. Legend.

    Note: If anyone can find some video of Mushtaq Mohammed bowling then that would be great.

    01. Sunil Gavaskar
    02. Virender Sehwag
    03. Rahul Dravid
    04. Sachin Tendulkar
    05. Javed Miandad
    06. Mushtaq Mohammed
    07. Imran Khan
    08. Syed Kirmani
    09. Wasim Akram
    10. Saqlain Mushtaq/Erapalli Prasanna/Anil Kumble etc
    11. Waqar Younis

    The problem with picking Inzi or someone over Imran is that while it would improve the batting, the bowling would be kinda compromised too IMO.

    If I was picking this side from the outset, I'd go...


    - Sunny Gavaskar
    - Virender Sehwag
    - Rahul Dravid
    - Sachin Tendulkar
    - Javed Miandad
    - Inzamam ul Haq
    - Imran Khan
    - Syed Kirmani (wk)
    - Wasim Akram
    - Waqar Younis
    - Bhagwath Chandrasekhar

    But I don't think you lose that much if you include Kapil as the extra bowler really....

    - Sunny Gavaskar
    - Virender Sehwag
    - Rahul Dravid
    - Sachin Tendulkar
    - Javed Miandad
    - Imran Khan
    - Kapil Dev
    - Syed Kirmani (wk)
    - Wasim Akram
    - Waqar Younis
    - Bhagwath Chandrasekhar

    And if you wanted to be a bit more creative....

    - Sunny Gavaskar
    - Farohk Engineer (wk)
    - Rahul Dravid
    - Sachin Tendulkar
    - Javed Miandad
    - Inzamam ul Haq
    - Imran Khan
    - Kapil Dev
    - Wasim Akram
    - Waqar Younis
    - Bhagwath Chandrasekhar

    Personally like

    Sunil Gavaskar
    Virender Sehwag
    Rahul Dravid
    Sachin Tendulkar
    Javed Miandad
    Mushtaq Mohammad
    Imran khan
    Syed Kirmani
    Wasim Akram
    Erapalli Prasanna
    Waqar Younis

    Anil Kumble would also have added to the batting depth, but with Mushtaq wanted the variety of the off spinner.
    Aus. XI
    Simpson^ | Hayden | Bradman | Chappell^ | Ponting | Border* | Gilchrist+ | Davidson3 | Warne4^ | Lillee1 | McGrath2

    Syed Kirmani catching a ball while doing a CARTWHEEL. That's right, at the same time. Why? Because he can;
