    - Choose one player dismissed by one of the following bowlers- Fred "The Demon" Spofforth, Bill "Tiger" O'Reilly, "Fiery" Fred Trueman, Colin "Funky" Miller, or Greg "Mo" Matthews

    - Choose your favourite player from the pool of unselected players when you use this clause, and in one sentence tell us why he's your favourite.

    The other five players are your own choice.

    Please note that the Poll Questions should have said; 'Please select the two best and strongest Test teams.'

    (But I'm not sure how to edit the Poll question)

    Harsh streaks ahead, then Monk over Watson
    Every 5 years we have an election and have to decide who are the least obnoxious out of all the men. Then one gets in and they age really quickly. Which is always fun to watch.

    When you have Bradman in a team, it is hard not to vote for it.

    I'd love to watch Monk's team play day five going for a win, but Harsh's team is INCREDIBLE. It was my first draft of any sort, so I'll get better no doubt. Watson's side is good too. So much fun, can't wait to do another one.
    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

    Love the enthusiasm And Monk did a brilliant job to get this done in record time ! Honestly, Monk's team is the most fun Incredible lower middle order and bowling.
    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.

    ****en diplomat, your's is the best for my view. Monk's is the funnest as you say and I think Watson's is going to run a close second, I'm not overly disappointed, I really like some of the guys in my side who others won't really. But yeah well done to Monk for a fun draft!

    I may also have a few beers under the belt ****

    Must admit that my team is a bit overly predictable. Marshall, Lillee, and Imran would probably form the strongest attack in the history of the human race, and the batting is rock solid, but nothing very imaginative in the selections.

    Ambrose-Lindwall-Barnes, and McGrath-Hadlee-Akram-O'Reilly are more fun, and Harsh's batting line-up cannot be beaten.

    Thanks again Monk.

    Elementary, my dear Watson, your batting line up is awesome, when you get to Sanga at 6, I can't see you side having less than say 350 very often on a bad wicket. Then a very capable bowling side behind that.

    Cheers Monk. Yeah Dan V's a solid player but not an ATG which is more what was needed! oops

    For me Watson and Monk just has the best bowlers and with batting lineups like these the est bowling attacks would have the best chance of winning.
