The ATG Teams General arguing/discussing thread

So this is based off career acheivments as opposed to actual Stars preformances?

Steyn for example only played about 4 games and didn't really set the world on fire from memory
Yes exactly. Steyn and Wade wouldn't have gotten close to the side otherwise. Tbh Steyn might still not even be among the best XI of T20 players that have been at the Stars but he was a big name so he got in.

If it was based on Stars performances only then Luke Wright would have been one of the first picked

Read this XI on another site, an ATG England XI made of openers:

Jack Hobbs
Herbert Sutcliffe
Alistair Cook
Len Hutton
Dennis Amiss
Geoffrey Boycott
WG Grace*
Alec Stewart+
Trevor Bailey
Wilfred Rhodes
Dick Barlow

Now you mention it, many of England's best players have been opening batsmen. Maybe you could make a full team out of them....

1. Hobbs
2. Sutcliffe
3. Boycott (6)
4. Hutton
5. Grace (1)
6. Gooch (5)
7. Stewart+
8. Brearley*
9. Lloyd (4)
10. Rhodes (3)
11. K Jennings (2)

Would probably draw a lot of matches.
Seems to be all the rage right now, the ATG England opener side.

Opening pair that are proven in World XI-ish games too. Both made scores in the Tsunami game against a strong Asian XI

I was watching Amazon documentary on The Test and have finished 4 episodes.
My question is have MCG / SCG become road in recent years or they were always like this ? Because Australian team clearly was unhappy with the pitch and were disappointed when they lost the toss .Or this is just an excuse by them as they are no longer the team they used to be in past .

Just want honest opinion (Like Langer😎)
Didn't know where to ask .
