    I'm assuming that we vote for our 3 favourite teams as per usual. Not sure why Jimmy has placed a vote next to everyone.

    At the risk of appearing anal retentive - I would like numbers next to each player. Looking at long rows of mere names is confusing to my brain. OK I'm weird, but happy that way just the same.

    Completely agree with this.

    If it's 1945-77 the selections of David Gower, Allan Border and Kepler Wessels are ludicrous, the selection of Joel Garner highly suspect and the selection of Javed Miandad a tad iffy.

    It was when they made their debut, or if they played enough matches after the war.

    Bagapath replaced Lawry with Washbrook?

    ANDY
    The attack of Roberts-Procter-Dev-Tayfield-Mushtaq-Hazare-Simpson is superb because of its skill and variety. Simpson-McGlew-Hassett form a rock solid top order, and Mushtaq-Dev-Procter provide the fireworks in the middle-order. With Tallon going in at No.9 the team has good batting depth.

    POTHAS
    The class of the batting line-up (right down to Jim Parks) was too hard to ignore. Statham-Toshak-Valentine-Chappell-Walters is a reasonable attack that is transformed by the inclusion of Dennis Lillee. With Lillee it has just enough firepower to claim the 20 wickets necessary.

    BAGAPATH
    Bagapath's bowling line-up is highly imaginative and I really like the combination of Hall-Pollock-Botham-Qadir-Mankad. Hutton and Washbrook work really well together, and Vishy gives the middle-order some much needed stability. The lower-middle-order of Botham-Kirmani-Pollock means the batting line-up will be no push over, and do just enough to support the bowling attack

    Fred's team probably the best....
    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta
