When MSN Sport asked me to put together a World XI for the 50-over form of the game, I knew I wanted variety and flexibility with bat and ball. Most importantly, I wanted proven match-winners, be they big hitting batters, wicket-taking bowlers or outstanding fielders.

I've left out 'bits-and-pieces' cricketers and I've picked players who are in form right now. I think my XI would be a good bet for victory on any surface anywhere in the world. One thing's for certain: I wouldn't mind coaching this side.

What do you think of my choices? Let me know in the comments or on Twitter @DGoughie

Why are there always spam adverts on these pages?? 12 on this page alone. Why doesn't msn stop these anoying sites from advertising?? Is it just me or does this annoy other people?? No matter how many times they are reported as spam sites MSN still allows them to advertise, why?? Surely with all the techy stuff at their disposal MSN could stop these adverts if they wanted to, but it appears that MSN allows them to advertise for some reason !!!!!   Why ????
