An Aussie XI in players by the best in that fielding position (That I've seen, for the opening bowlers, who will be McGrath and Lee)

Keeper: Adam Gilchrist
1st slip: Matthew Hayden
2nd slip: Ricky Ponting
3rd slip: Steve Smith
Gully: Michael Hussey
Point: Michael Clarke
Mid-off: Patrick Cummins
Mid-on: Nathan Lyon
Short Leg: Cameron Bancroft
Fine Leg: Lee/McGrath

In an XI format:

Cameron Bancroft
Matthew Hayden
Ricky Ponting
Steve Smith
Michael Clarke
Michael Hussey
Adam Gilchrist
Patrick Cummins
Brett Lee
Nathan Lyon
Glenn McGrath

Obviously Bancroft is the weak link in there. I was tempted to go Marnus short leg, Lyon at point and Warner at mid-on but eh, Bangers is the better SL
Okay, doing this for a "still playing" group (in FC cricket minimum)

Keeper: Tim Paine
1st slip: Matthew Renshaw
2nd slip: Steven Smith
3rd slip: Aaron Finch
Gully: Peter Handscomb
Point: Nathan Lyon
Mid-off: Patrick Cummins
Mid-on: Glenn Maxwell
Short Leg: Cameron Bancroft
Fine Leg: Pattinson/Hazlewood

Renshaw
Bancroft
Smith
Handscomb
Finch
Maxwell
Paine
Cummins
Pattinson
Lyon
Hazlewood

Talk about Finch/Hank with the stick all you like, both have fantastic hands in the cordon.
