All Time Combined XI since SAs Re-Admission in 1991

(Qualification – Have played opposition)

Kirsten – top order grinder
Smith © - unorthodox, but effective
Younis – street fighter
Yousuf - Grace and elegance
Kallis – champion all rounder
Inzamam – the Sultan of Multan
Boucher (WK) – as good as they come
Wasim – deadly left arm
Saqlain – inventor of the ‘doosra’
Steyn – over 300 test scalps, magical wrist position

12th man – Waqar (toe crushing swing bowler on the bench)

Historically in head to heads
Most runs (Pak): Younis Khan (3 centuries in 9 tests)
Most wickets (Pak): Danish Kaneria

Most wickets (SA): Shaun Pollock
Most catches (either): Kallis (no prizes for guessing that one)
