    It depends on who your team are. If they are already strong in batting you might choose Muralitharan and Shoaib. If they are stronger in bowling you could try Dravid and Lara etc. See my point? For Yorkshire I would choose Dravid and Kallis.

    Yorkshire XI

    M.Vaughan
    M.Wood
    R.Dravid
    J.Kallis
    M.Lumb
    A.McGrath
    C.White
    R.Blakey (wk)
    C.Silverwood
    M.Hoggard
    S.Kirby
    THE ULTIMATE CRICKET WEB ARCADE EGGS CHAMPION

    RIP Fardin Qayyumi (AKA "cricket player"; "Bob"), 1990-2006
    RIP Craig Walsh (AKA "Craig"), 1985-2012

    Ideally, McGrath and Tendulkar.

    But on today's form alone, Dravid and Muralitharan.

    So why do it? Now all you've done is try to turn it into another bloody Lara/Tendulkar thread.

    Just tell the guy which two players you'd pick for your county team and be done with it. Ideally, there shouldn't be any discussion here at all.
    After all, it's a matter of opinion when it comes to this.

    A. Because he is an aussie.
    B. Because they are both two of the very top players in the world.

    Well, maybe, except that Vaughan is not really a Yorkshire player any more, and it's doubtful whether Hoggard will play very much either.

    Kallis's performances in England are among his weaker ones, usually ascribed to some uncertainty against a moving ball - which only emphasises that he might well be a fairly poor choice for a team playing its home games at Headingley. Darren Lehmann has been such a fantastic success at Yorkshire that it would be madness to replace him with Kallis.

    But I'd entirely endorse Dravid, especially after the ghastly disappointment that Yuseless Singh turned out to be.

    Cheers,

    Mike

    ponting was named as the leading cricketer in the world, great number 3 batsman and top fielder, Warne is the best spinner in the world, and can handle the bat abit, good 1st slip as well.... only other one would be Dravid, but Pontings a better OD player...

    Hmm... I'd go with Dravid and either Warne or Bond, depending on how well Bond fares in England. If he's up to speed and his average stays as low as it is, I'll choose Bond. If he's losing his touch after his injury, I'll take Warne.

    Even though I hate the bastard.

    I'd personally go for Ponting and Murli.

    I dunno what the fixation with Lara is at the moment...his form had being dreadfull for the first 3 tests and he even looked out of touch for the 4th one (yes his 400 was magnificent none the less) but he'll struggle in england if he bats like he has this winter.

    Er, Brian Lara had 3 bad Tests. Before that he had the second most runs in the world after Ponting and Ponting got to face Bangladesh and the West Indies, while Lara faced Australia and South Africa. It's not as if Lara has done nothing lately aside from the 400.
    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    Technically incorrect. Unless they ban Murali.
