    I'm actually at a loss as to how Burgey's picked an Australian Ashes XI without Steve Waugh.

    Because as great as he was, the other blokes were better.

    Surely Martin Bicknell, Mark Ealham and Mark Illott are unlucky to miss out there?

    Is you number 11 Nick Cook, the left arm spinner? I remember him often failing to release the ball in his delivery stride, like he had the yips or something. Was very odd.

    Yep, we have a plethora of inept bowlers to pick from but I think you are harsh on Bicknell, had he been picked against any side but a marauding Aussie one he'd have had a very good test career. Don't get as many wickets as he did on the Oval pitches of the day without being a very good bowler. Showed that in his brief return v SA 10 years later.

    Yeah it was a bit odd he wasn't picked for an entire decade. They could have done a lot worse.

    Not that it matters to anyone but pedants like me, but I'm sure DKL took 167 wickets against England. Being out by 39 wickets there, I'm assuming you forgot to count his '81 series.

    You're welcome.

    Trevor Bailey once said very positive things about Mark Ilott, and he played against the Aussies in 1993, so I assume I can select him based on WR8/9?
