    For Sri Lankans, Bat Avg < 40, bowl avg > 30

    Marvan Atapattu
    Michael Vandort
    Asanka Gurusinha
    Arjuna Ranatunga
    Roy Dias
    Prasanna Jayawardane
    Ravi Rathnayake
    Chaminda Vaas
    Rumesh Ratnayake
    Rangana Herath
    Lasith Malinga

    Ratnayake at 7 is bit thin on batting, but both Vaas and other Ratnayake are good with bat.
    Diuretics are used to look good at TV shows

    I played for 20 years in the Lankan team, I did not have any problems as a Tamil - Muralidaran

    Vaas averaged over 30?
    5-0

    RIP Craig Walsh (Craig) 1985-2012

    Proudly supporting the #2 cricketer of all time.

    An Aussie line-up:

    Victor Trumper
    Bob Simpson
    Neil Harvey
    Clem Hill
    Stan McCabe
    Doug Walters
    Adam Gilchrist
    Jack Gregory
    Jason Gillespie
    Craig McDermott
    Arthur Mailey

    Simpson, Walters and McCabe would share fifth bowler duties - Big Garth and Big Merv both a bit unlucky. Lee too, I suppose.

    And few teams could top this one for quality of fielding - Simpson, Harvey, Hill, Walters and Gregory in particular were all magnificent fieldsmen.

    A team from the Caribbean:

    Gordon Greenidge
    Conrad Hunte
    Rohan Kanhai
    Richie Richardson
    Frank Worrell
    Clive Lloyd
    Jeff Dujon
    Learie Constantine
    Andy Roberts
    Wes Hall
    Alf Valentine

    Worrell and Lloyd to share fifth bowler duties, and like my Aussie team above the fielding is superb. I was tempted to throw Walcott in as 'keeper since he averaged sub-50 with the gloves, but decided that was probably too much of a cheat.

    50 and 25 seems rather lenient now. What's the best you can do with batsmen who averaged under 40 and bowlers who averaged over 30 (35 for spinners)?
    I'm always suspicious of shops that sell bait.

    Lamb
    Gatting
    Stewart
    Flintoff
    Giles

    My attempt...

    Bruce Mitchell
    Vijay Merchant
    Neil Harvey
    Stan McCabe
    Frank Worrell *
    Adam Gilchrist +
    Ian Botham (4)
    Vinoo Mankad (5)
    Kapil Dev (3)

    Shoaib Akhtar (1)

    Edit: Gilchrist in place of Ames. Completely forgot that he averaged under 50.

    The choice is unbelievably rich and difficult for someone who likes elegant batsmen (rarely do any of them average above 50 ) Personal choice here, not claiming it's the 'best' or that it's 'balanced' etc. Only chose those have experience of watching, thus Aussie bias.

    G Greenidge
    M Slater
    VVS Laxman (wrong position, but I had to have him)
    M Waugh
    C Hooper
    D Martyn
    A Gilchrist
    K Dev
    B Lee
    J Gillespie
    A Qadir
    'It is hard to recall a batsman quite so serene, so unrushed, so unflappable.' Chris Ryan on ... look to the left. Ahhhh.

    All about the all-rounders.

    Thought that having 19th Century players was kind of cheating.
