    Surely Danny Morrison merits inclusion ahead of Agarkar who has a century at Lord's for crying out loud.

    Agarkar is far from a tailender, he has a test hundred at Lord's.

    Add Donald in the list. Jimmy Anderson also.

    From India, Ashish Nehra was a solid no.11. Chahal isn't far off. Bhagwat Chandrasekhar was another legendary no.11, India's best spinner in overseas conditions.

    I think Danny Morrison & Chandrasekhar has to be there.

    In olden days (1920s-30s), there was an Aussie SLAO spinner - Bert Ironmonger. He was a genuine No. 11 in those days standard but quite a decent spinner to play for Bradmanís team.

    Now, one day this guy was playing for NSW and those were the days of analog phones - once you get connected, you better hold on to it. His batting time came (those were eight ball overs) and he started for his turn - normally his Captains wonít bother him for that trouble (declare at 9 down) but this time the game was on knife edge and a settled top order was at other end, so Ironmonger had to go.

    He took guard and was ready to face his first ball - a phone call came at dressing room; itís from Mrs. Ironmonger

    : Hi there, is Bert available? Itís a bit urgent
    : Sorry mam, he has just started batting
    : Ok, no problem. I can hold on for few minutes.

    Bert Ironmonger played 14 Tests for a great Australian generation - winning 12 of those 14 Tests and took 74 wickets at an astonishing average of <18 (In time less Test era of 1920s-30s when average of 29 was considered excellent) with two 10fors..... and scored 42 runs at 2.6 in 21 innings, of which two brought 22 and 20 of those 22 came from edged boundaries. A rough estimate is that, of his 42 runs, almost 80% came from boundaries .... when opponentsí foolish captain withdrew 3rd man & fine leg to plug covers & mid wicket!!!!

    Agarkar shouldn't be on the list. He has a Test century.

    Rest are fine.
