    England Pre-ODI ODI XI

    01. Jack Hobbs
    02. Frank Woolley
    03. Denis Compton
    04. Walter Hammond
    05. Ted Dexter
    06. Patsy Hendren
    07. Les Ames
    08. Maurice Tate
    09. Harold Larwood
    10. Brian Statham
    11. Sydney Barnes

    Note: Hammond, with Dexter and Woolley in support, should be able to bowl 10 reasonable overs between them.

    Athlai doesn't lie. And he doesn't do sarcasm either, so you know it's true!

    In fact, I should swap Jaisimha and Hazare in the batting lineup - yes, definitely.

    After consideration:

    World XI:

    Victor Trumper: Spectacular free scorong batsman, good fielder
    Jack Hobbs: Could anchor the innings, lead the charge, on anything in between. Great cover fielder and capable of fiddling a few overs if required.
    Charlie McCartney: Powerhouse batsman, good SLA bowler
    Graeme Pollock/Wally Hammond: Hammond#s decent support seam bowling and outstanding fielding might get him the nod but so might Pollock being a southpaw.
    Gilbert Jessop: Legendary fast scorer, outstanding cover fielder and another very useful back up bowler.
    Keith Miller: Almost made for the One Day game
    Albert Trott: Hard hitting batsman, reputedly bowled everything from slow leg breaks to fast stuff, sometimes all in the same over.
    George Hirst: Powerfull batsman with a great temperament for late in the innings. Big hearted left arm pace bowler.
    "Jock" Cameron: Quick scoring batsman and fine keeper.
    Harold Larwood: Notably accurate fast bowler who could move the old ball around. No mug with the bat.
    Hedley Verity: Bradman rated him the most difficult bowler he played against because "there was no breaking point with him". Ideal mentalityfor the game. Decent late order batsman.

    England XI:
    Hobbs
    MacLaren/Stoddart
    Hammond
    Compton
    Jessop
    Crawford (very good FM bowler - hard hitting batsman)
    Hirst
    Evans
    Tate
    Larwood
    Verity

    Didn't know that...we should probably make Manjrekar keep in that case:

    Vinoo Mankad
    Vijay Merchant
    Vijay Hazare
    Vijay Manjrekar+
    ML Jaisimha
    MAK Pataudi*
    CK Nayudu
    Lala Amarnath
    Subhash Gupte
    Amar Singh
    Mohammad Nissar

    Edit: Just noticed 3 Vijay's at nos. 2-4. Awesome
