    All Time Australian XI game

    So everyone here has gone for a food enduced afternoon sleep.

    I think its time to revive the World XI game from a few years back but just work on an individual country. Obviously if we are just picking the best XI its like any old thread, but the plan is to keep going and going until we have an Aussie O XI which would be the 16th best team.

    So Ill follow a similar path throughout, if I ask for the best 2 middle order bats, ill allow a voting for a period of time (min 24 hours) and the two highest voters get selected, if there is a tie, either next vote wins or my vote will be the decider (if i havent voted already). Team balance will be important so instead of just asking everyone to name 11 players ill do it in a way so that we dont have 4 complete bunnies in the tail. Cool?

    Ok so for Australian Test Cricket..
    1. Select who think have been the two best ever opening batsman
    2. Select your first drop/number 3
    3. Name your two opening quicks.
