WI all time XI

1 greenidge
2 hunte
3 headley
4 lara/worrell/weekes/kanhai
5 viv richards
6 sobers
7 walcott
8 marshall
9 holding
10 ambrose
11 garner/gibbs

i think the WI XI is possibly the most straight forward one to select. hunte and greendige are their 2 best openers, the other contenders being fredericks and haynes. headley undoubtedly their best #3. lara gets the #4 spot, averaged 60 there, though he was best at #3 you can't move headley from the #3 spot. viv takes the #5 spot, he was best at #3 like lara but as said can't move headley, #5 was his next best spot. sobers at #6. walcott is their best keeper batsman. then a 4 man pace attack most likely, gibbs if you want a spinner. sobers can chip in with the ball both pace and spin. 5 genuine bowling options with sobers and either 4 pacers or 3 pacers and a spinner. 7 genuine batsmen with walcott at #7 and marshall being decent at #8.
