    In a team of the year I'd definitely include him anyway because he was certainly one of the best batsmen this year, but I'm definitely starting to come around to the idea that he'd just miss out on a genuine World XI because of his unsuitability to where he actually bats (strange as that sounds).

    Cheers, was wondering whether he actually had a better year than Kallis.

    Then again Kallis ended Ponting's career so has to make the team. On that ball alone.

    Nah, no way. Had a huge series against us. Scored at least a 50 in every test.

    Would imagine if Bangladesh were removed from his figures he'd have a very similar average. Yes he scored the big double, but he failed twice in the first test too.

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."

    Batting lineup pretty straight forward as you said. Bowling attack probably a bit tougher, but considering Kallis' presence I'd probably pick two spinners.

    Siddle
    Johnson
    Herath
    Kumble
