The only criteria for selection is you have had to have seen the player live in any format or level of cricket!
Alastair Cook – 12,472 reasons why. Top bloke also.
Mike Atherton – These two openers should get you off to a steady start
Joe Root – Yes, batting at 3 but coming in at 150-1 after 65 overs would suit his game
Kevin Pietersen – Genius with a bat in his hand.
Paul Collingwood – Surprisingly choice, but made the best of his limited ability. Quality fielder.
Ben Stokes – All 3 disciplines
Ian Botham – Say no more, only saw him in his twlight years for Durham.
Jack Russell – Quality keeper. I’m sure i saw him Durham v Gloucester back in the day.
Graeme Swann – Control with the ball and could rattle a few quick runs down the order.
Steve Harmison – On song he could hurl it down.
Jimmy Anderson – Control, swing and 10 million wickets.
