With apologies to the cricket haters out there. No match on today.
A dream team that as - I think it's Ian Chappell that sometimes puts it, can 'play for my life'. Of players I've seen, hence no Bradman. I want grit as well as talent.
1. Mark Taylor (C) AUS - tough, resilient, great captain
2. Matty Hayden AUS - run machine
3. Ricky Ponting AUS - genius
4. Sachin Tendulkar IND - genius
5. Alan Border AUS - read comments M.Taylor - brilliant protector of the tail
6. Adam Gilchrist AUS - genius
7. Shane Warne AUS - flawed genius
8. Daniel Vettori (VC) NZ - read comments M.Taylor, great all round cricketer
9. Wasim Akram PAK - left arm genius, and could bat
10. Dennis Lillee AUS - genius, and fiery, no mug with the bat either
11. Curtly Ambrose WIND - genius, and fiery
Apologies to Gordon Greenidge and Des Haynes, Muttiah Muralitharan, John Snow and Steve Waugh. Never saw Keith Miller, but I reckon he'd have been a useful addition.
Nobody could beat my team. Pace attack in particular absolutely sensational.
