    Weird, it was tied before Steve's vote but is now still tied? I thought his was the clincher and we could move on!

    Three way tie, even closer than the spinner and keeper votes.
    I was going by this tally (was it wrong?). Hunte with steve's vote should be on 8 now.
    Len Hutton - Jack Hobbs - Ted Dexter - Peter May - Walter Hammond - Frank Woolley - Ian Botham - Alan Knott - Hedley Verity - John Snow - Fred Trueman

    Victor Trumper - Bill Lawry - Don Bradman - Greg Chappell - Allan Border - Keith Miller - Adam Gilchrist - Alan Davidson - Shane Warne - Dennis Lillee - Glenn McGrath

    No reason why the South African team can't be started while we are waiting for this to end.

    Or as a tie break since Worrell wasn't part of the short list that it goes to Hunte, just a suggestion to save time, not a recomendation.

    Kinda forgot about this. For me, Worrell is a middle order batman and that's where he should play.
    Hunte is imo, the second best opener WI have produced and therefore gets my vote

    I would like to have Worrell purely for the leadership and getting everybody from the different places together. But perhaps that can be achieved by having him as the manager of the side in this hypothetical.

    That's a hell of a side, and 9 out of 11 the same as the one I would have chosen myself. The pace attack is unrivalled (particularly given that Australia picked two spinners) while the batting line-up is a match for anyone.

    The lack of a world class slow bowling option is disappointing, as much in principle as in practice, and potentially makes team v team comparisons difficult as the type of pitch will probably have a huge say in any theoretical outcome.

    Yeah I went with Dujon behind the stumps for reasons already debated to death in this thread, but Walcott was a magnificent cricketer I suppose at least one of the Ws deserved a spot.

    In theory yes, but Garner played the role of spinner for the W.I. in the '80's. He is capable, willing and most importantly effective at bowling long controlling spells into the wind with a better avg, s/r and econ of any spinner in history and was effcient at cleaning up the tail.
    Also concerning flat decks, Marshall, Holding and Garner are all proven performers on docile and spinning tracks.
