Team Selector: Pick your combined Test XI of the 1990s

As part of Wisden’s 1990s in Review series, we want to know what your Test team of the 1990s, a combined XI of the decade’s best performers in men’s Test cricket, would look like.

It was a fascinating decade of Test cricket, as the balance of power in the world game shifted away from the all-conquering West Indies side of the 1980s, as the Australians rose to new heights under the captaincy of Steve Waugh.

We’ve selected a shortlist of players and below you can drag, drop, fiddle and ponder your way to what you think the Test team of the 1990s should look like. You’ll then get a graphic generated for you of the XI you’ve selected, allowing you to share your team with the world. If there’s anyone you’d like to be able to pick who isn’t listed, be sure to let us know!
