    Good to see Frog got his mate Voges in the team.

    If I'd have named it there would have been a Pakistani or two - and no f**king Warner - Ali deserves that spot Warner's stellar record away from Australia should count for something... and Voges, LOL too funny

    Davey Dumb Dumb and Don Voges are pretty big rivals for the biggest myth in World Cricket - once Davey gets on a plane he becomes Shaun Marsh's bitch

    Speaking of myths, how did kane Williamson get a gig? 10 tests 1 hundred (113) 753 runs at 47 this year.

    This minnow basher is seriously overrated.

    Does it change if you make it September-September, as the article said the team was selected on?

    It would have affected Dom Voges' record in a big way, as well as Smith who has done well in the latter part of this year

    Yeah, thankfully he got to play a few tests in Australia to get a taste of the wickets that boost the averages of Warner, Smith, Clarke, Burns, Khawaja and Voges

    Australia 49.38
    England 38.33
    India 37.12
    Pakistan 36.00
    South Africa 35.60

    Dumb dumb is, obviously

    We're minnows anyway, apparently, so why would you adjust?

    And as I said, if he got to play on your wickets all the time and batted lower his average would be higher

    Well if our batsmen got to face your bowling lineup all the time their averages would be higher too.

    But kane would still average less than davey and smith.

    Williamson already averages more than Dumb Dumb who really shouldn't be discussed in the same conversation as Smith and Williamson

    Voges FFS?? That's hilarious.

    Williamson was going great guns until South Africa in August. Hasn't been the same since then...not sure he'd get a gig if it was based on calendar year.

    Have they been pretty rigid on batting lineup for the top 6? Only explanation I can think of for Smith missing out.

    Kohli has been immense since his double hundred v us. Dominated the series v England, but obviously that doesn't count.

    If you swapped Khawaja for Warner, Kohli for Williamson, Smith for Voges that would be an awesome team.

    p.s. even if you didn't swap them, it's still a great team because it has no Wade. Thanks.

    Maths not your strong point is it?

    Australia 642 from 13 completed innings (+1 NO)
    England 460 from 12 completed innings (+1 NO)
    India 631 from 17 completed innings
    Pakistan 468 from 13 completed innings
    Sri Lanka 827 from 9 completed innings (+ 3 NO)
    South Africa 356 from 10 completed innings (+ 2 NO)

    3384 runs from 74 completed innings is 45.73

    Poor trolling AG very poor

    To do it any other way would require them to pay attention.

    I mean its a pretty good team but there should be some thought put in it. Its not like smiths record over the period wasnt great he was the next best run scorer during the period (hence why he is 12th man) but even a tiny bit of analysis could see that smiths runs were "better" than voges

    Its great trolling. Hooked JJ (admittedly not hard to do) and got a response from a reasonable poster like you.

    I didn't include the not outs because I didn't put much effort into it because I knowJJ is too thick to notice.

    Williamson averaging 45 against the best teams is about where he's at. Look at his work against the likes of England, Pakistan South Africa and India. Averages in the mid thirties
    Despite the hype from some kiwis he's not in the same class as Smith or Kholi.

    Williamson shouldn't be discussed in the same conversation as smith unless the conversation is 'which overrated kiwi averages almost 10 runs less than Steve Smith?'
