Name a countries current best XI for all 3 formats using 33 unique players

NUFAN

Y no Afghanistan flag
The scenario
The country you decide to use is playing a Test ODI and T20 series all at the same time so you are required.to select 3 XI's consisting of 33 unique players. Each country is playing 3 matches in each format where you'd get 2 points for a win, 1 for a draw/tie and 0 for a loss and no player, no matter how injury prone they are is in risk of being injured. If someone is currently injured you can select them and you can pick anyone who is basically available for selection.

Who makes your teams?

My initial thoughts. I feel like Abbott needs to be there somewhere and the T20 is lacking spin options unless captain Arun Finch rolls his arm over. Klinger is unlucky, no room for Watto.

Reckon the Windies almost actually do this

Test: K Brathwaite / Chandrika / Da Bravo / S Hope / Chanderpaul / Blackwood / + Dowrich / *Holder / Roach / Bishoo / Gabriel
ODI: De Smith / K Powell /+ Fletcher / *Samuels / Simmons / Carter / Mohammed / C Brathwaite / Narine ??? / Taylor / Rampaul
T20: Gayle / Dw Smith / J Charles / K Pollard / Dw Bravo / Russell / *Sammy / + Ramdin / Cooper / Badree / Santokie

Dunno if these are the best, more what seems to actually happen.

edited mine, stupidly forgot Hazelwood and Bailey, and added NCN instead of Tait.

edit: and edited again, forgot Finch.

Warner back to the test side from the T20 side (in place of Bancroft) and Finch to open in the T20s

He came close to the T20 but thankfully found Sharjeel is showing form in domestic.


But what I am most interested in is which side you pick The Big Show. Knowing he needs the big stage to care and turn up, it might be tricky
