    A lone Australia all time test XI would be able to beat a combined England, India and Pakistan one so there is no point. Pakistan and India's greatest ever test teams barely managed to even touch Australia in test series. In the end the only thing we were left to cherish was individual brilliance from some members.

    No shahzad , a combined Indo-Pak XI won't be able to beat a combined Aus-Eng XI. Heck they won't beat an all time Aus XI,Eng XI,SA XI, West Indies XI

    Matthews will walk into any test team at the moment he's in red hot form with both bat and ball.

    his bowling is very part time in my view!! he is doing gud as a batsman but has to beat other batsmen of better caliber. these days even players of mathews caliber also get runs!!

    He's performing better than our babay at 27. He is a gun player for SL and has his best years ahead of him.

    Afridi will be captaining T20 team and of course appearing in a lot of ads. So I don't see the connection.

    Exactly.
    3rd Highest Runs in 2014, 4th Highest Average and Most Wins as captain in 2014. I don't know what Misbah is doing the Test Team of the year. If nothing else, Smith should replace Misbah.
    MAthew Averages 20 runs more, and Smith averages 24 runs more per innings than Misbah.

    His player selection in the OP (Misbah ahead of Mathews, Smith and Root) shows that why he should have retired long time ago! :p

    What is the title of the this thread? "Team of the Year 2014 ". Who performed better in 2014 - as a batsman and as a captain? Misbah or Mathews?

    Aren't you going to create a thread for "ODI team of the Year 2014"? Would you include Misbah in that team?

    Misbah dint play 2 series but win against Aus was a massive one for us and we jumped from No. 6 in the ranking to No. 3 and now 4 in the ranking so i think Misbah was a more successful captain and is more reliable too/ this team is for tests but as far as odis are concerned, Misbah missed couple of series recently and matches as well!!

    I'll take an injured Mathews over Sanga and Misbah. He is top 3 bat in the world right now. No team can handle him.

    Team of the Year is supposed to be made out of players who performed the best in that year lol thus Mathews deserves a place. Beastly performance by him in 2014.

    well steve smith failed in uae totally. mathews deserves to be in the 11 but he looks ugly as a batsman but gets the runs and he is a poor bowler slow medium pace thats about it but will have to include him ahead of misbah on popular choice and stats!!
