Its difficult to name a W XI, but one would assume that Bradman is the first man in. He will always be the man at no.3.

No issues, that's the whole point of a forum.

It's just a personal thing, I hate selfish players and FTBs to be in my current XI, hence no Kallizzzz

Ironically, no Bradman in both of our lists.

He hadn't played the best of the bowlers like Marshall or Warne, played like 90% of the matches against the same opponent. So I don't know whether he'd make it to my All time XI. Way too many good playaz.

The lists are flawed. You are always having to make a team that is specific to the era in which the game was played.

Bradman and Len Hutton played in a different time and were by far the most prolific batsmen of their time. Same goes for Worrell, Weekes and Walcott. For that matter, this group isnt including W.G Grace at all. Fyi, Bradman faced his own challenges facing Larwood without any protective gear.

Most glaringly the names of Graeme Pollock and Colin Cowdrey isnt anywhere in your lists. Among bowlers you're missing out Michael Holding, Courtney Walsh, Curtly Ambrose who in their periods dominated fast bowling in Tests.
