Our readers have been making their picks for a test cricket World XI. Wayne Parker went off template with an ODI team, but we thought it was one worth sharing:

Here's something for all you cricket aficionados out there - my suggested World XI ODI team:

Jesse Ryder - New Zealand: A hard-hitting opening batsman who can also field in key positions.

David Warner - Australia: Another hard-hitting batsman with no fear and, like Ryder, is an outstanding fielder.

Virat Kohli - India: One of the new breed of Indian players who plays with swagger and flair.

AB de Villiers - South Africa: Possibly one of the most complete batsman around. He is outstanding in any form and has one of the best cricketing brains around.

Dwayne Bravo - West Indies: A gutsy all rounder who will give you 100 per cent all day long.

MS Dhoni - India: The best wicket keeper-batsman in the world and possibly the best ODI captain.

Ravichandran Ashwin - India: An outstanding off spinner who's not bad with the bat either.

Mitchell Johnson - Australia: Has raw pace with swagger and arrogance to boot, can be handy with the bat as well.

Sunil Narine - West Indies. Possibly one of the hardest bowlers to pick on the international stage at the moment.

Dale Steyn - South Africa: A great swing bowler with pace to burn and will bowl all day.

Trent Boult - New Zealand: A left arm swing bowler with a great future.
