    If you combine two of the three best sides in the world at any given time chances are they'd beat a ROW XI.

    Yeah and it's not even close. When even Teja can admit Anderson is better than someone, he definitely is.

    Yes. Only would go with Morne if you want a bit of variety and you consider Jimmeh to be Steyn-lite.

    You're probably right, although Eng and SA seem a long way ahead of the pack.

    Actually a combined Aus-Pak would probably thrash a combined Eng-SA in UAE
    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

    Yeah, I guess. Included Morkel because I figured Steyn and Anderson have virtually identical bowling styles, whereas Morkel creates a point of difference. But Anderson is probably the right choice.

    FMD, NZ have given Amla 20% of his runs and more than that % of their own total in misfields today.

    Terrible stuff.

    of course there is....the same English side that you want to incorporate with SA were bundled out for some pretty paltry scores in UAE. With the tracks taking a bit of spin Ajmal and Rehman can again wreak havoc and the Aussie pace attack can be bowled in short bursts.

    And SA were outplayed in 2 of the 3 tests recently as benchmark just reminded

    Definitely take Anderson over Morkel and making de Villiers keep is ludicrous when you then leave out the best keeper-batsman in the world.

    no way... Kallis and Amla are magnificent against spin. So are Cook and Prior. Plus, KP has the ability to pull a bunch of rabbits out of a hat on any pitch, like he's shown on numerous occasions this year.

    You do realize that Cook, Prior and possibly KP will be the only batsman from the 'same English side' that will be in the combined side right?

    Not a chance in hell. Especially 'thrash'.

    Wow, I can only presume that SA must've lost that series then, right?
