CricFit”s Test Team of the Year: The second segment of Rewind 2015 emphasises on the top performers at Test level, who have shined resplendently in 2015. Only last week, the ICC announced the Test and ODI Teams of the Year for 2015. Following the footsteps of international cricket’s governing body; Cric Fit has made a genuine effort to pick a squad involving the 15 best Test players of 2015. And, here goes the list.
Disclaimer- The selection of the following players has been done in accordance with the conventional ICC format of picking a 12 member squad. The period under consideration ranges from 1st January, 2015 to 12th December 2015.
The hoary Biblical story of David and Goliath suggests that a nine feet tall Philistine giant named Goliath, accompanied by a troop of Philistine soldiers had gathered for war against Israel.
He was slayed in the end, for the betterment of the Israelites, by none but the youngest son of Jesse also called Goliath who did the seemingly impossible when the latter was in his teens.
David Andrew Warner, who is gradually turning into an allegory of the fabled David, has been taking the bowlers apart with his raging Gray-Nicolls ‘Kaboom’ in white uniform in 2015. The 29 year old left handed opener from New South Wales has amassed 1277 runs in 22 Test innings at an enviable average of 58.04 with 4 centuries and 7 fifties in the calendar year. Although, he couldn’t live up to what was expected of him in the Ashes in England, the latter part of the year has seen him caress two consecutive tons against New Zealand in Brisbane (163) and Perth (253) respectively.
