Who gives a toss? As usual, you have selected teams for a ONE DAY
Here are my teams for Asia v The Rest over 5 days on an optimal pitch.
The Rest would win.
ASIA THE REST
Saeed Anwar Michael Slater
Marvan Attapatu Gary Kirsten
Sachin Tendulkar Justin Langer
Inzamam-ul-Haq Brian Lara
Yousuf Youhana Adam Gilchrist (wk)
Moin Khan (wk) Stephen Waugh
Abdur Razzaq Chris Cairns
Wasim Akram Shane Warne
Anil Kumble Brett Lee
Saqlain Mushtaq Alan Donald
Waqar Younis Courtney Walsh
The bowling department for The Rest is an incredibly difficult choice -
McGrath, Streak, Ambrose, Pollock, Vettori all miss out. Slater gets
the nod because you wouldn't play Athers and Kirsten in the same team.
Gilly is preferred to Stewart because the batting has such strength that
Stewart's solidity is less called-for than Gilchrist's dash.
Yes, friends, I *did* select SRT and BCL. If you flame me now, it
proves that I am on a hiding to nothing.
