International Coach
Jonny Bairstow (2012)

CricZo XI

Sunil Gavaskar /

Bill O'Reilly o
Allan Donald o

- Opening pair of Sunil Gavaskar and Gordon Greenidge are one of the best without any doubt.
- Skipper Worrell, Thorpe, de Villiers, Goddard and Bairstow makes a formidable middle order that can unleash an attack after the solid platform laid by the openers.
- Jonny Bairstow is as good a keeper as anyone else of this era and will do a fine job with the gloves.
- Allan Donald will be supported by Adcock, Starc and Goddard which is a fantastic bowling attack.
- Bill O'Reilly is mentioned separately because he is one of the very best of the trade.


Whatever it takes!!!
Honest Hunks

Simon Katich
Shane Watson
Ken Barrington (vc)
Stan McCabe
Carl Hooper
Aubrey Faulkner
Adam Gilcrhist (wk) (c)
Ravi Jadeja
Wasim Akram
Jasprit Bumrah
Patrick Patterson

A side for all conditions. Katich and Watson will be the fire and ice opening pair, Barrington will provide the solidity at 3, and McCabe the flair at 4. Hooper and Faulkner will look to add to the substantial scores they will walk in to and Gilchrist will then take the game away with his blazing innings at 7. Jadeja and Akram will score quickly and well in all conditions ensuring the 2 #11s hardly ever have to bat.

With the ball, Akram will create magic that will be sustained by Bumrah at the other end. Pat Patterson will bowl fast and hostile spells as the 3rd seamer/enforcer and will be supported well by Watson, who will also work when the ball reverses in tandem with Wasim. Jadeja and Faulkner will provide quality spin in all surfaces, while Hooper and Katich will chip in with match winning spells of the ball turning the other way in conditions that dictate their use.

Not unhappy with that considering I clearly didn't understand what was going on.
