    Australia and Pakistan are the best to start with, but after a while England and subcontinent teams become the best.

    No, he's worse than bad!

    Seriously, I've never seen him do anything at all worth bothering with.

    As for England, wait a few years and you'll kick bottom.

    In the game I mean.

    He played 30 tests for me at an average of around 29, which is better then Jones and Foster do.

    don't keep with trescothick(choose a specialist) and solanki and flintoff won't do you much good in tests - infact solanki is complete junk in ICC(just like real life i suppose)

    I've always used Crawley or Kenway as keeper until something better comes along.

    Pick M Powell to open. M Bulbeck, G Hamilton, M Hoggard, Gilo and R Anderson as your bowlers, your middle order Bell, Pietersen, Thorpe.

    That's horribly substandard. There are better 'keepers in England.
    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."
