    Lara, Tendulkar, DeVilliers is probably the most exciting part of any of these sides. Fairly good 3,4,5

    Thanks for the votes, guys.

    Probably one of the best batting line ups I have achieved in these things with the likes of Sobers, Hutton, Pollock and Kanhai. The bowlers were trickier to gather but I sorta expect Fazal and Waqar to form a similar partnership as Waqar did with Wasim.

    Thanks for voting everyone (he says, through gritted teeth) - think that was 11 pretty strong XIs to choose from - and congratulations to J_C and AldoRaine. Hope you enjoyed the draft.
