Fair enough , you los tyou're second choice seamer as well as you're captain/third best batsman
Our Best (arguably the greatest ever) spinner to suspension
Our no 1 strike bowler (second fastest in the world)
Our no 2 strike bowler
Our best seamer (the backbone of our attack)
Our experienced number 5/2nd spinner
Queensland seamer Noffke who would have played if not for injury.
