Bowling looks weak with only two frontline quicks and a couple of medium pace bits and pieces type bowling as back-up.

Bit harsh: Waugh and Ponting could be quite useful medium pacers, albeit that Ponting didn't bowl as much as he ought to have done.

A slow start followed by an explosion of strokeplay. That bowling would be quite a handful.

Roy's All Time XI

Cook
Amla
Tendulkar
Sangakkara
Pietersen
Kallis
Flintoff
Warne
Bishop
Anderson
Steyn

Bishop is the unexpected one in that line up. Steyn should be at 10 and Anderson is a bit of a surprise. I would have Ambrose, who I think is better than those three.

Anderson is a good bowler but even at peak, apart from in real swinging conditions, nobody with any real notion would take him ahead of any number of real greats of the game. Even within recent memory he's manifestly inferior to all of Ambrose, Walsh, Donald, Pollock, McGrath, Wasim, Waqar.

Do modern players have no idea of the game's history? You'd get that perhaps Bradman, Hobbs and even Sobers might be too distant but Glen McGrath?

I had Ambrose because he must have been the most frightening bowler of the lot to face.

7 wickets for 1 run v Australia

I'm going to give them the benefit of the doubt that the question they were asked was actually best players you've played against or alongside.

Otherwise Kallis instead of Lara is just lolsome and the omission of Marshall unfathomable.

I think Ambrose and McGrath are the absolute pick of that very exclusive list I gave but obviously a strong case to be made for all of them. I can't really pick between Ambrose and McGrath. For fear factor and the attributes of the big scary fast bowler, has to be Ambrose but for sheer utility McGrath has a tiny edge, albeit that Ambrose was pretty damn good for economy and utility too.

Do you think Roy has played with or against Bishop?

Roy won't have played against or with Bish will he?

Oh, beaten to the punch.

Bet you a tenner Bishop was his club's overseas pro or something similar.

It's too leftfield otherwise.

Good call, although it doesn't sound like they necessarily played together:

Imagine facing Ian Bishop in the nets as a 10 year old!

Plenty of pace to work with, although he probably didn't crank it up bowling to 10 year olds.

I like that Test XI though I feel your ODI XI might have some trouble with its bowling, though the batting there could possibly take care of most of it.
