    Adams would do well too.

    Not sure about Johnson.

    Johnson will do better than Adams.

    Test wickets >>>>>>>>>>>> County wickets, IMO. No mug with the bat, obviously, either.

    This is a FC competition though.

    Johnsons FC record is ordinary ,though obviously he has test wickets plus his recent form is not great.

    Reckon they'll do equally well.

    Only talking about bowling though. Obviously Johnson gets a big edge with the batting.

    Centurymaker's team looks solid.

    he took around 10 wickets at an avg of 23 in sheffield shield last season despite being out of form (avg'd 34 in 2010 in tests) and scored a hundred haha
    Adams' a handy batsman too btw

    So what exactly is the criteria then? I thought it was career with a slight bias towards recent series, but with Tests counting where appropriate? In that case I don't see how Joshi for example is a good selection as he's played Tests and proven to be mediocre at them.
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    That was a very long time ago though.
    I remember Prince saying that dominating domestic circuit is more important...

    No idea, I would say ask PEWS but he's given the answer many times - pick them as you would expect them to do if this were real.

    FC cricket played by Johnson - 2 Shield games and 4 Tests. That's quite obviously at a far higher level than some random Indian batsman bashing club standard bowling attacks.

    What do you expect? 2/3rds of his wickets are test wickets and it probably took him a year or two to settle into FC cricket.

    Don't forget that he was the ICC player of the year in 2009!! Took so many wickets!

    Just checked. his first-class debut was in 2001 so that explains why his fc avg isn't lower- Slow starter. Took him 6/7 years to get a test cap.

    We were comparing Andre Adams and Mitchell Johnson here in case you did not notice.

    And btw,India is the no.1 test team FWIW and have some pretty good batsman coming up.

    Thats precisely why Kohli is not in my starting XI.

    Kohli in this draft gets a bit of disadvantage as he has been playing ODI cricket with the country and so has not been able to play more of FC cricket.

    So because ODI's don't count ,he has basically not played any cricket relevant to this for that period.

    In terms of potential though and performance in international cricket, Kohli has done more than any young English Batsman i can think of.
    And Badrinath,Mukund,Rahan,Vijay,pUJARA etc.. have done well on overseas India a tours too. Though not sure how that is taken into account.
