There are a number of differences from my team over on Cricketgeek.

I was weighing up using Dravid as an opener. He only batted there 5 times out of 23 innings, but he was more effective when he opened than at number 3.

Likewise I had Hussey instead of Pietersen and Mawoyo instead of Sangakkara.

I had 3 different quicks.


I liked the look of Mawoyo when I saw him play, but I don't think he's played enough tests to go into a team of the year,

I like the look of the Reverse Sweep XI, apart from maybe having Hafeez opening with Cook. I might do my own XI soon if I get around to it.


Hah, I just came across this in The Wesden Cricketer. It was right above my Worst Test XI of 2011. ->

The Reverse Sweep

Ha ha, I've just published mine too - I see we went for the same middle order and keeper with Johnson being a must-pick
