    Asian XI

    The NZL/AUS combined thread got me thinking , if you could combine the Indian , Pakistani , Sri Lankan & Bangladeshi () sides , who would you pick.

    My test side-
    1.M.Atapattu
    2.S.Jayasuria*
    3.R.Dravid
    4.S.Tendulkar
    5.Inzamam Ul-Haq
    6.V.V.S.Laxman
    7.K.Sangakkara+
    8.C.Vaas
    9.S.Ahmed/Z.Khan/AA
    10.S.Akhtar
    11.M.Muralitharan

    Kumar gets in ahead of Moin Khan for his batting.

    One Day side-
    1.V.Sehwag
    2.S.Jayasuria
    3.S.Tendulkar
    4.S.Ganguly
    5.Y.Youhana
    6.K.Sangakkara+
    7.A.Razzaq/S.Malik
    8.C.Vaas
    9.AA
    10.Shoaib Akhtar
    11.M.Muralitharan

    Test:

    Jayasuriya
    Attapattu
    Dravid
    Tendulkar
    Inzamam
    Laxman
    Moin Kahn (I prefer Moin over Kumar)
    Agit Agarkar
    Vaas
    Akhtar
    Murali

    ODI:

    Tendulkar
    Sehwag
    Dravid (You cannot keep him out of a one day team)
    Jayasuriya
    Youhana
    Laxman
    Moin Kahn
    Agit Agarkar/Abdur Razzaq (Hard choice)
    Vaas
    Akhtar
    Murali

    Kumble would be hard to leave out. If on a turning wicket, I would say Kumble comes in for Vaas. It least Vaas offers something different.

    Ill come up with my teams later but Ajit Agarkar? Dudes he is an average bowler, nothing more, nothing less. Prasad was much better than him and even Nehra is better right now (wasnt able to perform well coz of injury) I dont think Agarkar would make the Indian test XI properly, let alone an Asian XI. I know he bowled well against the Aussies but he is not the class for an Asian XI.

    In interested by so many going for Sangakkara at number 7 as keeper.

    Surely if the top 6 is good enough for him to bat 7, you could pick a far better keeper to bat at 7?

    My team wouldn't be very different from the other ones on here, but personally, I'd go for Moin Khan as keeper.

    My team's bowling would have Kumble, Murali, Vaas, Akhtar, Z. Khan, one of them out, depends on the circumstances...

    The batting is hardly arguable, so I'll let that be.

    Sanga isn't the best off spinner in the history of cricket? News to me.

    Habibul is Bangladesh's claim to fame.
    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."
