Dang! after the SLan bashing yesterday i am ready to put their 11 as the Asian 11.

Well may be get Yuvraj instead of Arnold and Mash instead of Maharoof. That is the best I can do.

S Jayasuriya
S Nafees / S Afridi
S Tendulkar
K Sangakkara (wk)
M Yousuf
R Dravid (capt)
Y Singh
M Mortaza
C Vaas
M Asif (disregarding his ban)
M Muralitharan

* I included Afridi simply because of entertainment value for these kind of games. If unnecessary, then Shahriar Nafees can go ahead. The bottom four can easily take care of the bowling duties, with part-time services from Jayasuriya, Tendulkar, Yuvraj, and heck, even from Mohammed Yousuf!

out of 11, 6 of them from Pakistan, 4 of them can't make their own team. Afridi, Sami, Asif and Shoby. Nationalism at its best. I am sure you wish you had the other 5 players playing for Pakistan too.

A team without a spinner is doomed to flop. I considered Malik and Jaya as a part-timer at best.

this "hamsa bara kaun hain" kind of attitude is killing slowly pakistani team.. do u know that pak_Rox?? Just the latest WC is one example.. so learn to appreciate others game then you will learn something.. otherwise development is not there and you must be blind...

Why r there so many indian's and pakis' in the XI? team should have players from super 8 teams and 12 and 13 man from the rest.
Beside some players r not even selected by their own board.
If this is game for fun then i think we should select all bollywood people which will be more entertaining then watching players from the team outside S8.

(Facing opener) Sharuk khan
(Non-striking) Salman khan (The above took all his awards, even in cricket)
(vc) Mandira debi
Karina Kapur
Rani (WK)
John Abraham (alrounder)
Bipasha basu
(C) Amir Khan (slogger)
Sri Devi (still can jigi with it)
Hema malini (experienced)
Bacchan (the older one ofcourse - Devastating at his peak)

You have flair, you have stars, you have performers, you have sexiness, you have youth. This team is as balanced as it can get.

You have 10. Maybe adding Jayasuriya would give some bowling option as well. :)

Tharanga
Jayasuriya/Imran Nazir
Jaywardana (captain)
Rahul Dravid (vc)
Mohammad Ashraful
Yuvraj Singh
Sangakkara
Muralitharan
Lasith Malinga/Abdur Razzak

I like this team. Not entirely sure about Imran Nazir though, he can be an alternative to Tharanga but I think Jayasuria's ability to bowl as well makes him an easy choice. I think Shoaib Malik could be his replacement.
