Post by jaybro » Fri May 10, 2019 7:28 am

Jaybro’s All Time XI

Graeme Smith
Matthew Hayden
Ricky Ponting
Brian Lara
Jacques Kallis
AB De Villiers
Adam Gilchrist
Andrew Flintoff

All time XI across teams + formats
Guys we've watched playing
Creating a balanced team of eleven from our favorites, not necessarily the best XI possible. Picking the best team out of our favorites.

A nice idea indeed.

Here's CrimsonAvenger's All Time XI in batting order:

AB de Villers
Rahul Dravid
Kane Williamson
Kumar Sangakkara
Steve Waugh (C)
Andy Flower (WK)
Heath Streak
Anil Kumble
Kagiso Rabada
Javagal Srinath
Shane Bond

Unlucky to miss out but in the XV: Saeed Anwar, Chris Harris, Paul Strang, Mike Hussey

Haha, yes. The first international series I watched was England vs WI before the WT20 2014. The first series I actually devoted time to was India's tour of England. Explains why there's no Gilchrist, Tendulkar, Ponting etc.

Fair enough, how old are you? Are you a Zimbo?

I feel bad for any cricket fan that didn’t see the 2005 Ashes series in England, nothing I’ve seen since has even come remotely close to that series for quality of cricket played and quality of the competition, such fine margins played at such a high standard with the highest stakes

My word. Although, in my case, seeing meant listening on a LW radio. Freddie Flintoff would be my first pick from that series.
