    Your current World XI bowling attack

    If you go with a 3/1 combo

    Steyn
    Philander
    Anderson
    Ajmal/Swann

    If its a sub cone like track then a 2-2 would suffice

    Steyn
    Anderson
    Swann/Ajmal
    Herath/Rehman

    I'd go along with those attacks, Philander as yet unproven in sub con so Jimmy would get nod over him for now at least.

    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left

    Tanvir Ahmed can play the spinner role.

    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

    I would go with Xuhaibs attack.

    The grunting assasin. He bowls you with his deadly grunts.

    If you were that old, and that kind, and the very last of your kind, you couldn't just stand back and watch children cry.

    If I'm picking two spinners though then I'm picking Swann. I don't care if he turns it the same way as Ajmal; he's still miles ahead of all the left arm spinners AFAIC.

    So that means:

    Steyn
    Anderson
    Ajmal
    Philander / Swann depending on conditions

    So you now agree that Swann is the 2nd best spinner in the world. Something that you got me banned for you ****

    I don't want to get in a moderation debate in here, but you got that infraction for trolling regarding it, not for your opinion. The same thing would happen right now if you did the same thing again.

    I don't want to get into that pathetic piece of moderation either but this thread is the right place to say Ajmal > Swann because teams need to be selected.

    Ajmal > Swann
