We are the world

Happy Fourth, guys -- it's a holiday, and there is a fireworks party for later, but figured I'd spend a part of the day doing some spring cleaning on the comp, and *some* holiday-schedule blogging.
A second cut of 20 players to comprise the World XI squad has been announced (VVS Laxman, for whose inclusion Srinivas Nippani made a case on Rediff the other day, does not find a place, I notice).
Your take? Such exercises always lend themselves to second guessing -- I must confess for instance that good current form or no, Shivnaraine Chanderpaul would struggle to make my third World XI in ODIs. Let's hear from you first, though... what will -- form and fitness being a given -- be your final pick from this lot? For Tests and ODIs? Let's try and get the first cuts in, and see if we can't pick the playing XIs by, say, Wednesday?
