would have to be younis or jayawardene. but then you're dropping a player who's played 80 or 100+ test matches who averages 50+ for someone who is averaging 60 but from only 11 matches and even including his test matches in his FC record he's only averaging 40 for his overall FC record.

i'm not downplaying faf's test record, it's stellar and if you are talking recent success then yes you have to consider him but you also have to consider that he's played a lot less and therefore there is somewhat of an unknown about his consistency (especially considering his domestic FC record) whereas with the others they're all proven performers over many many years at the test level.

Did I tell you since BCCI NEEDS money the match will be held in Indian dusty bowl? Big 3 without any spinners, it is easy to guess who would win it.

Chanderpaul being the eldest in the squad should make way for Faf. I'm taking into consideration the fitness levels of players. In terms of batting mentality, Faf comes the closest to Chanderpaul.

nah chanderpaul has averaged nearly 80 in the last 2 years whereas younis has averaged 45 and jayawardene 49 and if you're thinking strike rate don't worry because for that period younis has been around 44 with both chanderpaul and mahela around 48. i think you'd have to leave out younis for faf, age shouldn'y be an issue as long as the performance is there.

Yeah, but i would go for youth, this team definitely needs a younger player (i know what you are going to say,why not williamson?) ,but Faf is the right guy for this team if there was ever a need for a World Test Team,.

No I'd def go for faf over Williamson. I don't see the need for youth in a team like this, I'd rather just pick the best XI at the time.

Big three have kohli, Faulkner, and Finn as youths. Why can't we even the proportion by including some youths.

I don't have an issue with youth, but they need to be good enough to match the experienced hands, Williamson isn't quite there yet imo, faf maybe but for me he hasn't played enough....don't get me wrong you include who you wish to I have no issues, I respect your opinion as I hope people respect mine regardless of whether we agree or not.
