6. Steve Waugh(c)

Watched in person?

We also did a "players I've actually met XI" which was quite fun

My 'Seen them live' XI would be, I guess.

1. Marcus Trescothick
2. Alastair Cook
3. Justin Langer
4. Ian Bell
5. Kevin Pietersen
6. Dean Elgar
7. Jos Butler (wk)
8. Peter Trego
9. Alfonso Thomas
10. Simon Hughes
11. Andrew Caddick

Though I have admittedly only spent about a minute trying to work out that so could probably do better thinking of all the players I've seen at Somerset over the years.

My "People I've met in person XI" is incomplete:

1. Justin Langer
2. Marcus Trescothick (wk)
3. Rob Key
4. ?
5. ?
6. Jos Buttler (wk)
7. Dennis Breakwell
8. Andrew Caddick
9. Paul Allott
10. Bob Willis
11. Joel Garner

Live at the ground or on TV is fine.
