    That's true...but that's because England play so many tests! Anyways, if we have to pick a team now, it has to be based on numbers available to us as of now.
    Hasta la vista, baby. I'll be back.

    The stats for all 4 are pretty similar- around a 100 Tests, around 8000 runs at average of 50.

    Few things that stand out are Sehwag's strike rate in Tests which is way ahead of the other 3 and Hayden's centuries which are more than his 50s (only one to do so out of the 4) which means he converts his 50s into 100s most often and scores big.

    Hence I would pick these two. 3 are left handers so with Sehwag anyway it would be a left-right combination at the top.
    Hasta la vista, baby. I'll be back.

    My reasons as I mentioned left-right combo, aggressive intimidating pair, Sehwag's strike rate and Hayden's big scores.

    Just 3 votes. I don't think this can work. It's better to drop the idea.
