Ban: umm, do I even have to list names here?
Eng: Bopara, Bresnen, Patel
Ind: Mr Million Dollars/2weeks of gully cricket, The Pathan brothers, Vinay Kumar,
NZ: They've lost all their ALRs, so he can easily replace one of them, N McCullum,
Pak: dare I say Afridi, considering they have Ajmal? Abdur Rehman, Hammad Azam
Srl: Mathews, Randiv
WI: Sammy, Pollard, Bravos, Dwayne Smith, A Russell.
True, Kallis lost his bowling a bit, but that's due to the fact that they've had some awesome young bowlers coming in in last few years. But back in the day, Klusener, Pollock, and Kallis would dominate. Kallis is more of a batting ALR now, it's his strong suit.
Can Shakib get into any side with his batting? I should say bowling, considering his current form, but overall, bowling is his stronger side. So I'll ask for batting.
