    Find out next week, if the pace of each round is anything to go by.
    Haha. Excellent top order and wk. decent utility all rounders in Vaas and Shastri. Billy is always a good opening bowler option. Not bad at all....

    Very nice team KK. All solid, no fuss, tough sort of players.

    Are you going to give Stewart the burden of opening and keeping?

    Robin Smith opened in ODIs iirc. Would be better than nothing.

    Going for my keeper- Syed Kirmani, one of the greatest glovemen ever and a very handy bat with a couple of test tons, and also my spinner, Pat Symcox, a combative all round spin bowler with attitude.






    Monk's XI

    - Gordon Greenidge
    - Mark Taylor *
    - Richie Richardson
    - Graham Thorpe
    - Sourav Ganguly
    -
    - Kapil Dev
    - Syed Kirmani+
    - Wasim Akram
    - Pat Symcox
    - Rodney Hogg

    Knott and Kirmani are the two best and entertaining keepers that I've seen live. Although Rod Marsh had the bestest and loudest appeal, especially when taking catches from spinners. It's a shame that Kirmani is not quite up to being a No.7 batsman or I'd try and pick him more often.

    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.
