    Can't be given that Stokes is there
    What if all the switches get stuck on 'destroy'?

    Since the start of 2015, so around 18 months (this XI seems to have been picked on about that time) Root has 2208 runs at 59 with 5 100's. Smith 1856 @ 71 with 7 100's, Williamson 1500 @ 83 with 5 100's and Kohli 884 @ 52 with 3 100's.

    But he has that X factor, that, that.... What? He doesn't have the career record, nor the recent past. Is it because he's aggressive? He has the lowest SR over that time between those four, so it can't be that. Unless by aggressive you mean random bouts of emotion throughout a game.
    As someone posted, apparently Warnie was part of panel, and he was calling KW, "Williams" when commentating at the WC lol, so that ought to tell you something.

    i don't care for virat kohli but it's hard to get worked up about a team compiled by a bunch of old english blokes.

    world elevens without dale steyn dont count, so i don't think small country syndrome is needed here.

    Big daddy Kane was recently the number 1 draft pick in the CW draft. Steady the ship williamson is therefore not only the best batsman but best player in the world.

The two unlucky players to miss out in my opinion are Amla & Williamson. This is also a squad, the final 11 would be picked depending on conditions.

    lol @ picking Sangakkara in a 90's side. Does Shane Warne not remember the 99 SL series?

    His 90s world XI is weirder than the current on IMO.

    it's because of his potential to be a better allrounder than hadlee if he takes wickets and is a good captain

    Also how predictable is Steve Waugh missing the 90's side?

    Gilly in that side would've made 2% more sense considering he played a handful of tests in the last few months of the 90's.
