    He was also an awesome wicket keeper. You have to have seen him to realise how good he was behind the stumps

    Curious that when Cricinfo ran this, Engineer wasn't even an option.

    I knew he didn't make their eleven, but not even making the shortlist is nuts. There probably aren't many more under-rated Test cricketers on that evidence.

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

    Syed Kirmani

    I saw enough of Kirmani during the 80s to convince me that he wasn't far off APE Knott in terms of skill. And maybe even better when standing up to the stumps because of his renowned stamina in hot Indian conditions. Apparently Kirmani had no breaking point and would be just as sharp when making a stumping at 6 pm as 11 am.

    Admittedly not as talented as Engineer with the bat, but still a stubborn No.8 who scored some good runs against decent attacks and averaged 27.04

    I'm surprised that this is almost a done deal after a couple of minutes.

    OK, Farokh Engineer it is. Can't see Kirmani or anyone else making a comeback from here.

    Wondering where to go now? I'm thinking bowlers.

    Please select a TRIO of bowlers. That is, 2 opening bowlers and a first change.

    It will be interesting to see whether the first change bowler is a third quick or a spinner;

    Quicks
    Javagal Srinath
    Kapil Dev
    Zaheer Khan
    Mohammad Nissar
    Amar Singh
    etc

    Spinners
    Anil Kumble
    Bishan Bedi
    Erapilli Prasanna
    Subhash Gupte
    Bhagwah Chandrasekhar
    etc

    Please note that your 3 bowlers may influence who is later selected in the No.6 spot (eg. a specialist batsman, or an allrounder like Vinoo Mankad, or even Kapil Dev for the brave). So choose carefully.

    Kapil Dev
    Javagal Srinath
    Bishan Bedi

    (Kumble 4th bowler)

    I'd actually bowl Kumble before Bedi on most wickets, but Bedi is first picked spinner.

    It appears (maybe) that most CWers will be choosing a spinner as their first change bowler. So in a way the first change bowler will be a popularity contest to see who India's all-time favourite spinner is.

    Or will CWers do something farely unique and give the Indian ATG team a 3 man pace attack for a change.

    This will be interesting!
