“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.


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


Rahul Dravid (India)


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


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?
