    21st Century one-per-team XI

    Basically, what is the best team that can be made with one player from each Test nation (and two from one)?

    Caveat is that the have to have played in the 21st century.

    My best attempt was:

    1. Hayden (AUS)
    2. Cook (ENG)
    3. Lara (WI)
    4. Tendulkar (IND)
    5. Williamson (NZ)
    6. Al Hasan (BAN)
    7. A. Flower (ZIM)
    8. Akram (PAK)
    9. Steyn (SA)
    10. McGrath (AUS)
    11. Murali (SL)

    I wanted to go 1. Smith and 9. Warne but the bowling had too much spin in that case.

    Ambrose retired in 2000.... so, not technically 21st century....

    Big of a cop out to include the likes of Wasim and Flower because you wouldn't necessarily think of them as 21st Century cricketers.

    1) Matthew Hayden
    2) Virendar Sehwag
    3) Ricky Ponting
    4) Kumar Sangakarra
    5) Brian Lara
    6) Shakib Al-Hasan
    7) Brendan Taylor (+)
    8) Graeme Swann
    9) Dale Steyn
    10) Mohammad Asif
    11) Shane Bond
