Once you get down to choose the final XI it is hard to omit some of the greats. After seeing Miraz's test openers I think my slow coach Gavaskar is out of his league. But his numbers are way up there and I can't ignore them.
Miraz's ODI also has more bowling option with Kallis. But I think my part time bowlers Jaya and Richards can handle 5 overs each in any pitch.
