    I agree to an extent anyway; Dhoni should definitely be in that side. I don't really rate his batting at all though so I don't agree with moving him up to 7. He should bat at 9 as a specialist wicket keeper. There are really no other serious alternatives.

    Sanga isn't the best off spinner in the history of cricket? News to me.

    Ok, I will concede the point of the batting order. Fair enough. But has there been a better gloveman over 75 Tests?

    Yes. THIS is the way to make the team better. Spot on.
    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.

    In the above 25 category, the spinners need to average above 30 (that's what the OP said). So, I picked Prasanna. Qadir was my reserve.

    Similarly, in the above 30 category, spinners need to average above 35.

    Pretty sure Albie Morkel has a Test batting average in the high 50s.

    Below 40 batting, above 30 bowling, 35+ for spinners.

    Mike Atherton
    Aamir Sohail
    Nasser Hussein
    Carl Hooper
    Arjuna Ranatunga
    Brendan McCullum
    Brian McMillan
    Andrew Flintoff
    John Bracewell
    James Anderson
    Ray Price

    Pretty happy with this team, although Jonty Rhodes for Ranatunga might be a decent shout to improve the fielding.

    EDIT: So yeah, close to Howe's side.
    Just opened this thread for the first time ready to disappointed and to state that all teams devoid of Herbie Taylor should be considered invalid.

    Bannerman is very highly rated. He was the best Aussie batsman of his time. I am not sure he would fit in there.
