    Your Current World xi

    I'm surprised there isn't a regular rolling thread on this, updated after every series.

    Probably should wait till the end of the year but I'm going away after Christmas so thought I'd post this after the last round of tests and before the South-Africa vs England series.
    1st xi to face Mars :
    Warner
    Cook
    Williamson
    Root
    Smith
    de Villiers *
    Ashwin
    Starc
    Yasir Shah
    Steyn
    Anderson

    2nd xi
    Vijay
    Pujara
    Amla
    Younis Khan
    Mathews
    Chandimal *
    Shakib al Hasan
    Broad
    Lyon
    Boult
    Morkel



    Fire away!

    One of my pet hates, please specify if this is Tests, ODIs, T20s or combined forms. I'm not sure if the old cricketweb rule of thump of 'unless stated otherwise it's Test cricket' still applies.

    Correction: I've just noticed you stating tests.

    Surely Broad has to be in the 1st XI...

    You're right, I didn't specify explicitly, tests.

    Boult over Anderson for mine. Wouldn't change the batting though.

    On current form Boult wouldn't get near the team. Also Starc's injured. I know he'd look right at home on mars with that moonboot of his, but I think it might impact on his effectiveness somewhat. Broad in for Starc.

    Some definite ICC team of the year-style shenanigans going on with the wicket keeper selections...

    i know australia delude themselves with their home performances (look at the five minute wonder hometown hero Hazlewood selection) but you need to watch tests not involving them kthnx

    specifically, boult in the second and third UAE tests and in Sri Lanka.

    watch the aussies come in force

    de Villiers is keeping v England tbf.

    Though I'd still probably chuck Watling or Sarfraz into my XI.

    Depends what you mean by 'current'. You seem to mean 'right now'. I was thinking more 2015.

    Ashwin and Yasir because we reckon a martian surface might turn a bit? I mean, I don't the wicket will have seen water for, what, 200 million years?
