    Explain where Smith would fit into England's LOI side then?
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    Anyone want to join the Society?

    Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.

    In place of Samit Patel. Very good fielder and not bad with the bat. His bowling is better than Patel.

    It can be someone other than Smith too. But Monty would feature in Australia's Test team regularly while he doesnt get a lot of chances in the England side because of Swann

    In place of someone who isn't in the team already? So a specialist 12th man?

    you know, england wants an all-rounder, and kinda has an opening spot free......
    Indians can't bowl - Where has the rumour come from as I myself and many indian friends arwe competent fast bowlers ?

    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

    In his heyday, Stuart Mac Gill could be traded with any other team for an empty spot in the Australian team. tbf though - there were hardly any gaps in the Australian squad of that time.

    Maybe he could be traded with a finger spinner who would be useful when touring Asia.

    There were so many other Australians one the fringes of selection who'd have walked into most teams in the world at that time too.

    It really depends on whether you have a short or long term perspective as I cant imagine Monty being much use to Australia outside of the subcontinent

    This reminds me of the cricket trading game Hurricane run. We should do it again IMO.

    Count me in, and I am Pakistan.

    My starting 15 man squad:

    Nasir Jamshed
    Azhar Ali
    Fawad Alam
    Younis Khan
    Misbah ul Haq (c)
    Asad Shafiq
    Adnan Akmal (wk)
    Saeed Ajmal
    Umar Gul
    Junaid Khan
    Wahab Riaz

    Umar Akmal
    Mohammad Hafeez
    Mohammad Irfan
    Harris Sohail

    First come first served. Pick a team with a 15 man squad and each person will have upto 5 swaps to improve their squad.

    How about Dunedin's rain in exchange for a few degrees of that 35C Hyderabad heat?

    I would possibly take that. We aren't playing Rahane anyway, and whilst he probably has plenty of years ahead compared to Mitch Johnson, who is a 30+ year old sook, India could really use him.

    Interesting trade nevertheless.

    Possibly.. But I feel Ojha Vs MJ was a very balanced trade given that they are both bowlers who can't make their sides first XI even though their sides basically suck atm..

    That is also a balanced trade. Problem is Ojha may not be effective in Australia, Eng and SA I guess. But if it were a "loan", my God would Australia jump at that trade.
