    Red Banjo. In Viv Richards he has the ODI version of Bradman, and in Tikolo the one batsman better than the Don himself. Not a fan of Dujon below Streak in the order though. Bowling is strong, and has at least 7 options to get overs out of.

    AJBlaikie doesn't have enough bowling. Hooper is a serviceable fifth option for 6-7 overs, but isn't a viable fourth bowler. And Simmons > Dippenaar every day.


    Vega has a good opening combination, but the middle order is very one-paced - Waugh and Border are similar batsmen who were far better in Test cricket. Unless you're picking the 1980s version of Waugh, which would be gun, but you aren't because he's batting 4. Bowling attack isn't bad.

    But George's team simply blows him out of the water. Turner and Watson are a fantastic opening combination (plus gets the 5th bowler out of the way early), and how he got a middle order of Lara-De Villiers - de Silva - Lloyd is insane. Mathews is a good modern finisher, and Morkel is destructive. I'd argue the bowling is a tad light on strike power, but with 8 options by my count, finding a few economical overs to complement the three specialists he has shouldn't be difficult. Croft-Alderman-Watson-Morkel-Mathews-Narine-De Silva-Lloyd doesn't look too shabby at all.

    Yeah, all good points. I'm not as sold on Turner as you but he can't hurt.

    And I know we like to big up Tikolo but nah **** it let's big up Tikolo
    And we still haven't walked in the glow of each other's majestic presence.

    4 ****ty teams against each other

    Red Banjo and Vincent Vega to win these matches
    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
