    JC and SK are the two obvious candidates because their teams are nicely balanced and they have some stella players. Third choice was difficult but liked OS's team in the end because his 3-4-5 is very strong, and the bowling options are excellent.

    Really wanted to vote for Howe's team because I like the thought of Grimmett and Underwood bowling in tandem, and Mr_mr's team because of Barnes and Morris opening plus Cameron behind the stumps to Barnes and Chandra. But you can't vote for everyone.

    Looks like Red's star-studded attack with some help from Kanhai, Weekes, and Jackson may get him over the line as well. Nice work!

    I'd say Honest's team is my favourite. Very good balance, perhaps not statistically but each player would fill a role very well. SK next again a very good balance and brilliant bowling attack but the batting, wow Ponting , Pollock, Sobers
    Lastly went for Howe's team, an exciting outfit and plenty of variety in the bowling.
    Also mentions for RH great side and Watson (top side but not enough bowling variety)
    Thanks for a fun draft

    Would love to see a 5 Test series between the following teams as it would be very close, and there are so many great match-ups.

    JCs team would have to be one of the strongest I've seen in a Draft, but Marshall + Waqar, then Mahmood + Lohmann would quite a handful at any time, on any type of pitch. But then again, is it really more talented than Larwood + Procter, then Garner + Briggs. Perhaps not.

    So in the end, it might be a matter of whether Smith's mercurial middle order could string together enough brilliant innings to out-score the more methodical batting of Sangakkara's middle-order.

    Prediction: 2-2 with a rain interupted draw.
