“If you can’t bowl, by all means throw”

Enter your own World Cup fantasy team here…

For a look at my competitors, try here and here.

Batsmen

Nick Knight (Eng)
Herschelle Gibbs (RSA)
Matthew Hayden (Aus)
Brian Lara (WI)

Keeper:

Rahul Dravid (India)

All-Rounders

Sanath Jayasuriya (SRI)
Sachin Tendulkar (India)
Jacques Kallis (RSA)

Chuckers

Brett Lee (Aus)
Muttiah Muralitharan (SRI)
Shoaib Ahktar (Pak)

My team includes 3 Chuckas, and at least 1 Muslim, Hindu, Buddhist and Christian. I was unable to find any Jewish players.

For extra points identify the player carrying a sexually transmitted disease!

Note: Andy Flower doesn’t make the team due to missing at least 1, and probably 2 matches. Dravid gets in ahead of Gilchrist because I can only have 2 Aussies, and I predict Brett Lee to be the most successful bowler of the tournament, so I had to have him.

Am I the only one who thinks listing Tendulkar and Jayasuriya as All-Rounders makes picking the team a little too easy?
