    The order for the WIs selections will be as follows-


    R1- Pick FOUR middle order batsmen

    R2- Pick FOUR bowlers for the bowling attack

    R3- Pick ONE wicketkeeper

    R4- Pick TWO opening batsmen


    So, first up is the middle order. Plenty of quality to choose from. Choose four from the list, or add your own, legit, suggestions....


    Garry Sobers
    Viv Richards
    Brian Lara
    George Headley
    Rohan Kanhai
    Frank Worrell
    Everton Weekes
    Clyde Walcott (will also be included in keeper list if not selected here)
    Shiv Chanderpaul
    Seymour Nurse
    Al Kallicharan
    Clive Lloyd

    Tough as it is to leave out the "W's", I think you're there with the first four names:

    Garry Sobers
    Viv Richards
    Brian Lara
    George Headley
    Cricket Web's 2013/14 Premier League Tipping Champion

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "The committee discussed the issue of illegal bowling actions, and believed that there are a number of bowlers currently employing suspect actions in international cricket, and that the ICC's reporting and testing procedures are not adequately scrutinising these bowlers."
    - Even the ICC's own official press release thinks things must change

    Oooh... this is going to be a difficult team to pick

    Sad that i have to leave out the W's, love Kanhai, Kallicharan, Lloyd and Chanderpaul too (severely underrated), but those first four are ahead of the rest by a decent margin imo...

    Sobers
    Viv
    Lara
    Headley

    Here come the kings.

    Do we only look purely at the batting ability or include all aspects of the player, like captaincy in Clive's case?

    Sobers
    Lara
    Richards
    Headley

    A lot of quality options for the last spot tbh, but the other three stand out IMO.
    5-0

    Proudly supporting the #2 cricketer of all time.

    In that case I will simply go for the big ones.

    Headley
    Lara
    Viv
    Sobers

    Already looks unbeatable and we haven't even begun with the bowlers.

    Some someone else will, Jager usually at least gives us a surprise or two. Ready to move on to the interested picks though.

    Yep

    Headley
    Lara
    Weekes
    Sobers

    I'd have Walcott ahead of Weekes but I want Walcott batting seven and keeping wicket.

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