    Name a countries current best XI for all 3 formats using 33 unique players

    The scenario
    The country you decide to use is playing a Test ODI and T20 series all at the same time so you are required.to select 3 XI's consisting of 33 unique players. Each country is playing 3 matches in each format where you'd get 2 points for a win, 1 for a draw/tie and 0 for a loss and no player, no matter how injury prone they are is in risk of being injured. If someone is currently injured you can select them and you can pick anyone who is basically available for selection.

    Who makes your teams?

    Beat me to starting this thread

    Cook, Compton, Bell, Root, Ballance, Bairstow, Stokes, Rashid, Broad, Wood, Anderson

    Hales, Moeen, Vince, Taylor, Morgan, Buttler, Bopara, Willey, Plunkett, Tredwell, Finn

    Roy, Wright, Lumb, Pietersen, Billings, Ansari/Shah, Patel, Woakes, Mills, Parry, Topley

    Pretty close to sacrificing the T20 side there
    We are lost
    We can never go home

    If we needed 33 players we'd probably start picking some more Ireland players though

    ODIs

    1 Guptil
    2 Worker
    3 Ryder 7
    4 Elliot 6
    5 Brownlie
    6 Corey Anderson 4
    7 Ronchi
    8 Bracewell 3
    9 NcCullum 5

    Test ODI T20
    David Warner Usman Khawaja Aaron Finch (c)
    Ed Cowan Nic Maddinson Ben Dunk+
    Steve Smith (c) Callum Ferguson Shaun Marsh
    Adam Voges George Bailey (c) Chris Lynn
    Joe Burns Glenn Maxwell Peter Handscomb
    Marcus Stoinis James Faulkner Moises Henriques
    Peter Nevill Matthew Wade Mitch Marsh
    James Pattinson Mitchell Starc Gurinder Sandhu
    Peter Siddle Patrick Cummins Kane Richardson
    Josh Hazlewood Nathan Coulter-Nile Jason Behrendorff
    Nathan Lyon Jon Holland Doug Bollinger

    My initial thoughts. I feel like Abbott needs to be there somewhere and the T20 is lacking spin options unless captain Arun Finch rolls his arm over. Klinger is unlucky, no room for Watto.

    Reckon the Windies almost actually do this

    Test: K Brathwaite / Chandrika / Da Bravo / S Hope / Chanderpaul / Blackwood / + Dowrich / *Holder / Roach / Bishoo / Gabriel
    ODI: De Smith / K Powell /+ Fletcher / *Samuels / Simmons / Carter / Mohammed / C Brathwaite / Narine ??? / Taylor / Rampaul
    T20: Gayle / Dw Smith / J Charles / K Pollard / Dw Bravo / Russell / *Sammy / + Ramdin / Cooper / Badree / Santokie

    Dunno if these are the best, more what seems to actually happen.

    edited mine, stupidly forgot Hazelwood and Bailey, and added NCN instead of Tait.

    edit: and edited again, forgot Finch.

    Warner back to the test side from the T20 side (in place of Bancroft) and Finch to open in the T20s

    "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
