Test XII - Right Here / Right Now
« on: December 29, 2020, 09:03:11 PM »

ooooooh - it's tough to pick an XI for this right now this instant - however, I have had 5 Amstels and 4 Heinekens, so I reckon I'm a 'proppa selecta' - here's my best possible 12. You will of course disagree....................................

Elgar
Bravo
Williamson*
Smith
Labuschange
Stokes
DeKock+
Ashwin
Broad
Bumrah
Abbas
Rabada - 12th


Anyone want to pick and XI to play against this lot? How about:

Crawley
Sibley
Taylor
De Silva
Du Plessis
Shakib*
Watling+
Jamieson
Nortje
Anderson
Boult

9. Cummins
10. Hazlewood

Tough putting broad and Anderson in a world 11 given they go missing on the subcontinent

Icc bowling rankings make interesting reading with wagner at number 3

Interesting how many have Smith given his shocking run of form since the 2019 Ashes.

I spent like an hour on looking at this last night and still can't choose a side. No love for Babar Azam?

If we assume no injuries, I think (bearing in mind the perennial issue that we have with the few standout candidates to open) that I would go:

Latham
Labuschagne
Williamson (c)
Kohli
Azam
Stokes
Watling (w)
Cummins
Archer
Lyon
Boult
12th Man - Bumrah

Azam is obviously not fit, so that spot would be a toss up between Root, who I would make open and move Marnus down, and Rahane.

Those with most grounds to take offence would be QdK, Broad and Starc.

Where's the hypothetical game being played? Makes a huge difference. How about a World XI to play the current No1 side, Australia (lol), in Australia?

1. Latham
2. Elgar
3. Williamson
4. Azam
5. Kohli
6. Stokes (c)
7. De Kock
8. Ashwin
9. Rabada
10. Wagner
11. Bumrah
Squad members: Anderson (in for the pink ball game), Root, Rahane, Archer and Yasir.
