    Some key points...

    1. 11 players can participate in a cricket match.
    2. The most suitable 11 players have been chosen.
    3. The composition of the team shall not be changed.
    4. The matter shall now end.

    Others have been severely criticized for similar if not lesser comments.
    I am talking about in terms of there's no points at stake etc.

    There's a difference between Tests and warm up games.

    Over here this sort of side is selected from teams without a game where possible, but if not possible then players are selected with the idea of not penalising or benefitting others.

    Yes I have, and that is why I asked if he was being rascist.

    From the fact that he couldn't understand a comment I left....not my fault, nor his I guess, but the comment of "durka durka" ie: from Team America, where the creators suggest that "terrorist people" (all middle eastern people basically from this take-the-**** of lame western ideolgy ((mainly american)) )are viewed as speaking a substandard language ie all words are :durka durka mohammed alah durka durka".

    Hence, rascist if I was not of Western culture :P, even though I am, and just screwed up the sentence.

    Sorry, needed to answer that. Rascism is poo.

    I was led to believe that the CW chairmans xi was picked to see the players who are very very borderline to be in the test team in the future ..... who may not be in the first test xi but who could be in the rest of the series.

    ?

    So, I was led to believe that this 'warm up' game is infact tied to the test series one way or another. Meaning it still has meaning, and that being selected in this team (regardless of where the player comes from .... red/blue/green/black).

    Also, don't all teams in CW play at the same time? So all teams would be 'penalised and/or benifited' on the same dates? Which is irrespective of selection if the cw chairmans xi want the strongest team.

    Thanks for clearing things up.

    The chairman's side isn't a 2nd XI though!

    It's a mixture of players with varying reasons for selection.

    Exactly, .... a -mixture- meaning that the mixture doesn't mean equally numbered from the different clubs

    I think this thread has gone horribley out of control. My bad.
