Test world XI

Before we start this test is being played in South Africa because it is the most equal place in the world.

  1. Tom Latham, Tom has an outstanding year an has a test average of 41,6. Also, wicketkeeping is another string to his bow.
  2. Aiden Markram, relatively new to test cricket but has an average of 44. This is very good for someone new to international cricket.
  3. Chestewar Pujura, the wall of Indians batting. His series against Australia showed why he is one of the best batsmen in the world. He outscored Virat.
  4. Virat Kohli the best batsmen in world cricket.
  • 5. Joe Root when on form very close behind Kohli but he just doesn’t get enough 100’s.
  • 7. Jos Butler, he has had an incredible year performing when his team have needed him against Pakistan, India, Sri Lanka and the West Indies.
  • 6. Ben Stokes, I will always say this, when on form the best all-rounder in world cricket.
  • 8. Pat Cummins at the time of writing he is the best-ranked bowler in the world. Also very handy with the bat.
  • 9. Nathan Lyon, for me he is the best off spinner in the world.
  • 10. James Anderson the best ever swing bowling exponer.
  • 11. Jasprit Bumrah the most exciting bowling prospect. As good as any at the moment.

    1. Root ahead of Williamson, not sure about that. Stokes and Cummins both susceptible to injury so if one goes down… but aren’t all fast bowlers. What about Boult?

      Impressed by Buttler in the last Test, thought the experiment might be floundering overseas but he showed that he can adapt.

      What about Keaton???!!!

      We’d all pick different teams but decent XI you’ve put together.
