    I could live with that team KK, as it's probably as strong as any.

    What has become obvious is that England hasn't had a stand-out No.3 since I can't remember (Dexter or Barrington?). Michael Vaughan seems to win by default because of his captaincy.

    He'd do a sterling job for you. Just don't let him face any nasty fast bowling.

    I really thought I'd get a lot more stick for picking Jones over Jimmy than Fraser over Broad. Maybe I'm not the only one who regrets not getting to see much more of him at his best.

    The legend of Jones; made all the more stronger by the fact that he hasn't played a single test since Trent Bridge 05 - a potential lifetime ago for a cricketer.

    In his "my 100 best pals and one or two cricketers" book, Warne mentioned how the Aussie dressing room mused over exactly how they should (or could) combat Jones. He compared batting to him with playing "russian roulette".

    And I imagine Warne should know
    World XI Since 1990 -

    1. Gooch 2. Dravid 3. Ponting 4. Tendulkar 5. Lara 6. Kallis 7. Gilchrist 8. Akram 9. Warne 10. Ambrose 11. McGrath

Take the qualification period back 5 years though and of course he has to be in the side.
    I hear you. But it's AB. I would put him down on the team sheet as an automatic along with Steve and Tubby. I started watching in 88 so those 3 were massive. Always a spot for AB in an Aussie top 6 IMO.
