Drinking XI, England

by

Strauss: A bottle of port. Robust, classical and good for after-dinner speaking.

Cook: A dry white wine. A safe choice: always available and popular with the ladies.

Bell: A half of premium lager. Small and perfectly formed although lacking a bit of character.

Pietersen: Long Island Iced Tea. Full-on, unsubtle and gets the job done in style.

Collingwood: A peaty single malt. Earthy, ginger and never goes out of fashion.

Flintoff: A foaming pint of real ale. England. Amazing. Difficult to keep well.

Prior: A Vodka Kick. Mouthy and brash. A hit with the lads.

Swann: A cheeky red wine. Sanguine and, um, cheeky. Better with age.

Anderson: A campari and soda. Red. A bit hard to fathom but still a class act when ordered.

Harmison: Cognac. Finest in its vintage form. Makes your eyes water. Expensive.

Panesar: Hair of the dog. You never think it’ll work but it almost always does. Hairy.

12th man, Owais Shah: Gin and Tonic, a highball cocktail, founded in India. Appropriate for any occasion. Never drunk.
