Ron Reed and Vic Marks have done it. And so has Uncle JRod.

Here is mine.

  1. Sehwag – The innings against South Africa and Poms at Chennai. Enough said.
  2. Smith – Gambhir is unlucky to miss out, but Smith scored more runs, and at crucial times.
  3. Pietersen – The guy can bat.
  4. Tendulkar – I don’t want to explain this one.
  5. Ab – Loads of runs, and with style.
  6. Chanderpaul – I hate to do this. I mean I really hate his tape under his eyes, but he made runs, and buckets of it.
  7. Dhoni – The best keeper batsman in Tests today.
  8. Mendis – Amazing debut against the best players of spin in the game today.
  9. Ishant Sharma – One of the three awesome pace bowlers. His spell to Ponting was one of the best spells of fast bowling in almost a decade. 
  10. Dale Steyn – Look at the number of wickets.
  11. Mitchell Johnson – Very impressive young bowler with a lot of heart and good cricketing sense.

Reserve bowler – Zaheer Khan – again amazing cricketing sense. Reserver batsman – Gautam Gambhir.

Any ideas??

My team would be similar.. would replace Johnson with Zaheer in the starting eleven though..
