    I can't really contribute to a Windies one, they've been mostly rubbish in my time. First time I remember them is 1991 and they were already on the way down. BC Lara is of course a genius and I saw plenty of Curtly and Courtney, but not them at their real pomp.

    What next? An England ODI team? A WORST England XI?
    Let me loose on a worst XI! James Vince, I'm gunning for you

    Yep. Greenidge and Haynes must open
    Wolves have ambition and wit... why is it such a crime?

    Didn't get any drugs off him either.
    Listen, I went down the pitch to a 13 year old Charlotte Edwards and was beaten all ends up .
    Carole Baskin is to blame.

    Habib and Lathwell have to be in a worst XI. Even Paddy can’t defend that Somerset opener.

    Ian Blackwell, Gavin Hamilton, Andy Lloyd, Simon Kerrighan,
    Carole Baskin is to blame.

    Andy Lloyd started one innings of one Test before Malcolm Marshall broke his eye socket. Not sure that qualifies him for the worst ever.

    Scored 10 never seen again. If he was half decent he would have had a second chance. England were bang average then. Leftie perchance?

    10 not out and not really, he lost partial sight in his eye, didn't play for a year and by his own admission couldn't play at the same level

    I should have gone Haynes ahead of Ritchie Rich. My mistake. Still both super players.

    We could do this for India and Pakistan as well (I want dear departed Abdul Qadir as a spinner in that Pakistan line up!)

    Iíd have gone left field and gone for Stokes but Gooch was winner by a huge margin.

    Anyone up for a World XI from the same period?

    I never played against Charlotte, but I did play against her dad.

    Adding my thanks to Sniffer. I've contributed to this thread more than probably any other for ages.
