    Top effort to name 100 lads, can't fathom Langer and Ponting being in the same world team, the difference in ability and performance was substantial.

    I just liked the idea of having the top 3 from Australia's most successful ever team back together. But yeah, swapped him for the obvious Bruce Mitchell.

    would rather have Imran Khan than either Wasim or Dennis Lillee in that first 11 IMO. also think McGrath could be higher up. but otherwise not bad
