    Question is - How the heck is he going to earn the right to be aggressive in an all time XI?

    West Indies or South Africa for mine.

    Would like to go for Australia but tbh I think that both Trumper and Morris would fold too quickly when put under pressure by Marshall/Ambrose/Holding/Garner or Procter/Donald/Steyn. They might make the odd good partnership but I think that they would be too inconsistent over the usual 5 Test duel. It then becomes a question as to how many runs Bradman/Chappell/Border can score against a ball with some shine on it, relative to the West Indian or South African line-ups of course.

    But whether my guess is right or wrong, I think the team with the most 'counter-attacking' players who don't fold under pressure is most likely to win a head-to-head contest. That is, when the skill level is very close, character counts for everything.

    I actually created a thread for this type of discussion.

    People seem to forget that Headley, Lara, Sobers, Walcott and yes, even IVA were excellent players of spin. Lara scored almost all of his great innings againts Warne and Mcgrath and sometime Mcgill. Headley scored hundreds on uncovered wickets againts Verity, Grimmett and Ironmonger, Viv dominated Underwood and scored hundreds in India vs the quartet. It is a myth the the W.I and in particular this line up was weak againts spin.

    Thinking much the same as kyear. WI batsmen can handle spin though I'd still take a punt on leg spin against them.

    NFI which keeper. McCullum would refuse the gloves and ask to be selected in your XI at a batsman.
