    Cricket All-Stars 2015 - Sachin's Blasters vs Warne's Warriors

    I didn't see a topic about it but thought its worthy of its own thread. These are legit ATG sides, only perhaps a decade or so too late. But it should be fun to see some of the rivals of the 90s buddying up and just enjoying a good game of cricket.

    The draw happened yesterday and they split 28 great players, and Ajit Agarkar, as follows:

    Sachin's Blasters:*Sachin Tendulkar (c), VVS Laxman, Sourav Ganguly, Virender Sehwag, Brian Lara, Mahela Jayawardene, Carl Hooper, Lance Klusener, Shaun Pollock, Moin Khan, Graeme Swann, Glenn McGrath, Muttiah Muralitharan, Shoaib Akhtar, Curtly Ambrose

    Warne's Warriors:*Shane Warne (c), Matthew Hayden, Ricky Ponting, Michael Vaughan, Jacques Kallis, Kumar Sangakkara, Andrew Symonds, Jonty Rhodes, Saqlain Mushtaq, Wasim Akram, Daniel Vettori, Courtney Walsh, Allan Donald, Ajit Agarkar

    The matches are as follows:

    1. 7th Nov - New York
    2. 11th Nov - Houston
    3. 14th Nov - Los Angeles

    FWIW, these are the two line-ups if I was selecting the final XI:

    Blasters:
    1. Tendulkar
    2. Sehwag
    3. Lara
    4. Jayawardane
    5. Laxman
    6. Klusener
    7. Moin (who else can keep?)
    8. Shoaib
    9. Murali
    10. Ambrose
    11. McGrath

    Warriors:
    1. Hayden
    2. Vaughan
    3. Ponting
    4. Sangakarra
    5. Kallis
    6. Rhodes
    7. Symonds
    8. Vettori
    9. Warne
    10. Wasim
    11. Donald

    Any predictions? Who has still got it? And who will be ridiculously past it?

    Teams looking pretty well balanced. I'd give it to the Warriors because Vettori/Warne/Kallis are all pretty close to match fit in terms of bowling. Both batting lineups still would be pretty gun you'd think.

    Oh didn't see you left out Pollock. I'd definitely imagine he'd be in better condition than the other quicks from Blasters.

    Probably. I just can't choose who to omit from McGrath (that line and length will still be perfect), Ambrose (just too cool) and Shoaib (will still be ever the showman).

    I hold Pollock's bland personality against him.

    I also left out Ganguly, Hooper, Swann, Saqlain, Walsh and AA.

    would love to watch wasim bowl again
    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta

    "This is a clash of strategy. And of methods, culture and politics. This is a new-era rivalry. Not as ancient as the Ashes, or as passionate as India-Pakistan. Two countries that are so different, yet share rampant egotism, high self-opinion and a belief that being born in their country is superior to other births. This brings together a belligerent bunch of brats, bullies and braggers."- Jarrod Kimber

    Warriors have the better batting, Blasters have the better bowling. Should be good. Would have Swann over both Pollock and Ambrose.

    So happy that you've finally accepted Jacques Kallis as our Lord and Saviour.
