The condition is too stringent. That's injustice to virendra sehwag, MS. Dhoni (captain), Yuvraj singh, Zaheer Khan, Ravichandran Ashwin, Brendon McCullum, Ab de villiers, Hashim Amla, Dale steyn, Glenn McGrath, curtly Ambrose, chaminda vaas, saeed Ajmal.

May be All time 22 (11 on each side).

then it becomes too easy. if we get around 7-8 teams, then we can match teams and have a vote (play-off) for the best team.

I have a similar thing for football (soccer) too.

Keep in mind - the team should be equally good in all formats (T20, 1-Day,Test)

Challenging!

01) (Batsman) Sachin Tendulkar (India) 
02) (Batsman) Sanath Jayasuria (Sri Lanka)
03) (Batsman) Brian Lara (West Indies) - Captain
04) (Batsman) Rahul Dravid (India)
05) (Batsman) Shivnarine Chanderpaul (West Indies)
06) (Wicketkeeper) Adam Gilchrist (Australia)
07) (All-Rounder) Lance Klusener (South Africa)
08) (All-Rounder) Wasim Akram (Pakistan)
09) (Bowler) Dale Steyn (South Africa)
10) (Bowler) Glen McGrath (Australia)
11) (Bowler) Mutiah Muralitharan (Sri Lanka)

Wasalam

#5 was a difficult spot to fill. Could have put in Inzamam ul-Haq or Muhammad Yusuf, but decided to go with Chanderpaul - I think he was too under-rated, especially since at the time the West Indian team was in a decline.

I mean the team should be for all 3 formats. And 250, as you mentioned are not enough for test and ODI these days.

They are great. No doubt.

who cares about test they will do 350+ in ODI easily.

Nobody watch test matches anymore. Nobody got time for it. :D lol

There's a reason that it's called Test Cricket - it is the ultimate test of character, technique, courage, skill, persistence, stamina and dedication.
I too follow scores. Who will watch 9 maiden overs out of 10.

agreed.

@Lover of Ahlulbait (ams)    @Ron_Burgundy    @Sindbad05   @ali_fatheroforphans    @starlight     @Ibn al-Hussain

We have 7 teams. ali_fatheroforphans will have to re-submit his teams.

If we can get 1 more entry, then we can have playoffs.

Ideas on how to run playoffs:

Simple put 2 teams against each other and we vote on who might win. For example Ron's team vs SM14    sindbad vs starlight, etc. Then 4 winners pitted against each other and we vote and then final team and we vote.

Or do you guys want to get scientific and bring in stats, etc.
