    Cringed when I saw Warne was going to do it. He has no place doing world XIs.

    People actually get upset at this sort of thing?

    I saw who the panel picking it was and switched off straight away.

    I do think that Kohli is class though and I'd be very surprised if he doesn't eventually end up averaging over 50. Is he up there with the other 3? Maybe or maybe not atm but he will be there in no time IMO. The dude can bat.

    Nah, Williamson will play on average four tests per yes over his career and end up being regarded as a lesser player than his contemporaries. Sorry, but it's true. Not his fault, but it will happen.

    Rate him very highly, especially in tests. He's a classical player of the highest order.

    It was picked by Warne, Raja and Atherton.

The point being neither of these people are particularly well informed about current cricket, they watch barely a handful of games involving the big teams and don't really follow anything outside of that. Herath and Steyn missing out and Starc getting picked on the day he took 11 wickets is a testament to that.

    [

    Since 2014, KW averages 73, YK averages 57. Both Azhar Ali and Hafeez average higher than Cook in the same period and in far less number of games, Hafeez as as many hundreds and Azhar has more.

    Picking AB as a keeper is kinda cheating but I sort of understand that selection. But if anything, Sanga should have been selected as WK batsman ahead of AB.

    But bottom line is that this team should not be taken that seriously. And here's the thing about Kohli though. I believe he is a great batsmen and his test average doesn't bother me that much. It's only a matter of time before he gets it up there. And he is also not a lesser batsman than KW, Root and Smith. But if we are picking a current Test XI, there is no way he gets number 4 ahead of YK or KW today.
    You are not seriously suggesting Hafeez should be in a World XI ahead of Cook are you? You didn't actually just compare those two? Hafeez shouldn't play for Pakistan abroad, let alone a World XI.

    Of course you were going to be first to make the joke, seeing as you were on the other side of the wall.

    I didn't start the thread based solely on this panel and its thoughts, it was just a good example of how overrated Kohli is and like I said I'm done with it. He's not a top 10 test batsman and yet he's treated like he's the top dog, or one of anyway.

    Man, I love KW and I think it is a travesty that he is not recognized for what he is in such lists - one of the best batsmen going around today, period. But threads like this really make me wanna sorta hate him... There are bigger travesties in those very sides chosen than just KW and yet we are waahhhing about him, really?
