    left hand XI vs right hand XI

    well since there seem to be so many all time XI's going around i thought this one wouldnt be so bad

    left hand XI

    gary kirsten
    matthew hayden
    brian lara
    graeme pollock
    gary sobers
    allan border/clive lloyd(c)
    adam gilchrist
    alan davison
    hedley verity
    wasim akram
    bishen bedi
    (the bowling is kinda weak)

    right hand XI

    jack hobbs
    sunil gavaskar
    don bradman
    viv richards
    barry richards
    imran khan(c)
    alan knott
    malcolm marshall
    shane warne
    curtley ambrose
    fred trueman

    note- a person who bats left and bowls right(or vice versa) should be picked on basis of what skill they were better at. so someone like ambrose should be picked as a right handed player.
    Tendulkar = the most overated player EVER!!
    Beckham = the most overated footballer EVER!!
    Vassell = the biggest disgrace since rikki clarke!!

    A bowling line-up that Has Wasim Akram, Hedley Verity and Alan Davson isn't so bad.

    Not as good as:
    malcolm marshall
    shane warne
    curtley ambrose
    fred trueman

    But left XI bowling still not that bad.

    I'm not too dissimilar a batsman to Bradman.
    Both of us have batting averages below 100.

    Sorry but i think that Kirsten and Hayden are both better than Anwar. They compliment each other very well.

    I think Saeed Anwar is quite underrated.

    Anwar was a brilliant player, i'm not doubting that. However Kirsten was the perfect stonewaller yet Hayden is a very accomplished attacking opening test batsmen.

    He's one of the better exponents of swing, and in SL the conditions are not exactly the best for him.....He did very well in South Africa last year.

    Let's not start arguing about whether Vaas is the best/worst bowler in the world. Even though these are extreme views you know what i mean.

    Yes, but it's by no means a World All Time attack, so in that sense it isn't that great.

    Your Tendulkar bias is showing quite clearly once again tooextracool.

    Im astounded to find that Tendulkar, after all his achievements does not feature in your right handers squad.

    But anyway, everybody has their own opinion. Most of the time, these all time team discussion's are trivial anyway.

    ive mentioned my reasons as to why i dont rate tendulkar earlier and also made a list of 25 batsman who i rated higher than him before.......besides i dont think tendulkar is a better batsman than bradman or either of the richards.
