    My votes go for:

    Red Hill: Seriously good side. Batting line-up is really, really good, power up top, sheer skill with Amla & Lara, dynamism with KP and a quality WK-batsman in Ames. Tavare at 7 is not an ideal pick, but could do a stoic job with the tail. Hadlee is an ATG all-rounder, and boosts the batting and the bowling. Larwood and Walsh add a touch of fire, whilst Macgill could have been an ATG in another generation.
    NUFAN XI: Talent all through the team, particularly in the bowling. With Marshall, Donald, Statham & Gibbs, there's an attack that can bowl out anyone, and the batting is quality with Smith and Sutcliffe up top. Punter adds the grit at number 3, whilst Viv provides the power. May and Waugh are both quality at five and six, and Marsh is a decent keeper. Would go toe-to-toe with Red Hill's XI.
    Aldo XI: More difficult to select the 3rd team, but I like this team. I like Sanga and Younis at 3 and 4, and the three Aussies are really strong. Karthik is perhaps the only weak-link (something which Red & NUFAN don't really have), but he's a capable batsman and gloveman. The bowling has one of the best spinners, and two of the best fast bowlers - as well as Stuart Broad.

    There are several in Nufan's lot that I don't like very much, but I have to concede it's the strongest team - honourable mentions to all the others, but especially Red Hill's and Aldo's, who get the other two fertang votes

    My team not getting a single vote is yet another proof that Bradman was a hack. CW finally concurs.

    NUFAN and Red Hill's teams are probably the strongest, but Morgieb's is my favourite by a distance.

    Hobbs, Kanhai, the 3 x Ws, plus Qadir and Oldfield together are all very easy on the eye. Roberts and Bedser outstanding.

    I thought my team was much more balanced and had a decent chance but then I noticed Red Hill and Nufan's teams.

    Ankit, never pick Bradman when you are at the mercy of somebody else for your other 10 players.

    What you laughing at? T & F are placed way too close on the keyboard it seems.

    S***, totally forgot about this. If anyone cares, Red Hill's XI runs away with it, with NUFAN in second. Cheers everyone.
