and no you cant do your favourite eleven
smali, is there any particular reason it's a favourite XI as opposed to a greatest XI?
no particular reason except that I favor some of them for aesthetics rather than them being strictly greater players

Which brings me to my 3rd selection. Arguably the greatest left arm bowler ever to play the game if Bradman's word is to be taken.
Wasim Akram is the most skillful fast bowler that I have ever seen in all my years of watching cricket. Period. Now some may ask what was it that made Wasim so skillful? Well, everything. The way he would set up the batsmen by dragging him across the crease. He could do everything with the ball that others could only dream of. Inswing, outswing, movement off the seam, yorkers, swinging yorkers, sharp bouncers, good slower balls, and he could do all of this of a few steps and without losing too much pace. He could bowl six different types of deliveries in one over, he did have that kind of variety and that would keep the batsmen guessing. He always gave you that feeling that he something special was around the corner. Some magical delivery would be coming up soon enough. And sure enough come it did. To me cricket has not been the same since Akram retired. If you think I am very different in my assessment of him as a bowler just go and ask Allan Donald, Glenn McGrath, Curtly Ambrose, Brian Lara, Stephen Fleming and they will tell you that I speak nothing but the truth
Current Favourite XI 1. Cook 2. Gayle 3. Sangakarra 4. Clarke* 5. Chanderpaul 6. Rahane 7. De Kock+ 8.Johnson 9.Steyn 10. Herath 11. Roach
I want West Indies to be competitive again
seriously though, he is one of my favourite left armers, his swing was the best I've ever seen, followed by Damien Fleming. Just amazing control for a swing bowler as well. Handy with a bat too. Good selection
yes, I totally forgot. He could be handy with the bat too
Team so far
2. Mark Waugh
9. Wasim Akram
11. Michael Holding
In retalation i want to let loose Marshall and Garner on Junior with the new cherry and watch them fry his ass with nasty bouncers.
Wasim Akram is everyone's favourite, isn't he? I loved his hearty toothy grin after trapping a batsman.
