    Went for Watson, Dan and Baxter after some thought. Some really good teams in there considering the clauses we had. Most teams gave me something to think about before casting my vote.

    Down to five, As I said Marcuss all of them are very close and I have to nit pick.
    Yours was the last of the four to be eliminated, very strong team with no weaknesses, just as everyone knows not really a fan of Larwood or Wasim and Laker was at his best on a wet track. Love the top six.
    You are quite safe though, so all is good.

    Kyear
    01. Sunil Gavaskar
    02. Alec Stewart
    03. Ricky Ponting
    04. Sachin Tendulkar
    05. Douglas Jardine*
    06. Mushtaq Mohammad
    07. Mike Procter
    08. Richie Benuad
    09. Malcolm Marshall
    10. John Maclean +
    11. John Snow

    Very well balanced team with an excellent captain and even better attack. The middle-order is not the best on show but that doesn't matter too much with Gavaskar, Ponting and Tendulkar at the top of the order, and then Procter and Benaud to protect the tail. Maclean lacks Test match experience, but his FC experience (1968-79) makes him OK.

    Blakus
    1. Victor Trumper
    2. Bob Simpson
    3. Rohan Kanhai
    4. Graeme Pollock
    5. Tip Foster
    6. Keith Miller*
    7. Matt Prior+
    8. Richard Hadlee
    9. Curtly Ambrose
    10. Bill Voce
    11. Bishan Bedi

    I do like the bowling attack of Hadlee-Ambrose-Miller-Voce-Bedi a lot. The question is, will the team make enough enough runs with Foster in the middle-order? I'm also never quite sure about the ability of Pre-WWI batsman when facing up to modern fast bowling, despite the fact that Trumper is a legend. However, the class of Kanhai and Pollock, the toughness of Simpson, and the skills of Prior and Hadlee in the lower order should mean that the team scores enough runs to win.

    Monk
    1. Arthur Morris
    2. Saeed Anwar
    3. Clem Hill
    4. Greg Chappell
    5. Wally Hammond
    6. Clive Lloyd *
    7. Kapil Dev
    8. Wayne Phillips +
    9. Alan Davidson
    10. Allan Donald
    11. Clarrie Grimmett

    I think that Monk's team is very dynamic. It has a long list of attacking, but also sound batsman who can pile the runs on quickly. Grimmett and Davidson can 'turn the screws' at one end when bowling, while Donald and Dev attack at the other. The bowlers are backed up by a great captain and excellent slips fieldsman. The only real blemish is that Phillips was an average Test match keeper. But few of these teams are perfect.

    Watson
    01. Geoff Boycott
    02. Hanif Mohammad
    03. Brian Lara
    04. Dudley Nourse
    05. Vijay Hazare
    06. Javed Miandad
    07. Imran Khan *
    08. Ray Lindwall
    09. Jackie Hendriks +
    10. Saqlain Mushtaq
    11. Joel Garner

    As for Watson's team - its batting is solid right down to Imran Khan, and made dynamic by the brilliance of Lara and Miandad. I defy any opposing line-up to keep-out Lindwall-Imran-Garner-Saqlain for too long on any type of wicket, even if it is Gold Tier. The keeper is an ATG, and the Captain inspirational. Admittedly Boycott is a bit of a bore, but I think that it would be overly picky to let him colour the rest of the team. No really, I can't see any other team on show beating this one in the long haul of a 5-test series - with the possible exception of kyears. That match-up would probably end 2-2.

    very good team actually, was going to vote, but KK's team is better than just one vote. Viv and Warne in the same team in it self was worth my vote.
