    Andy Blignaut. Not sure if he'd like living in a tiny village in the middle of the Devon backwoods though.

    Becuase our ground is very small and he'd smack huge sixes all over the place, and his bowling would be far too quick for E Division East of the Devon League (the lowest possible 1st team league in the county). And he's a Zimbabwean. I would have a kiwi but I fulfill that role in our side.

    Freddie Flintoff would fit perfectly into my school team - we're short of an all-rounder at the moment, and I'm sure he'd be good for morale.

    Simon Jones as a batsman. Happily bats last, although he's quite a good tail-ender batsman and deserves a promotion. We're always having trouble finding out who will bat at No. 11

    I think the fact that he bats 11 is more to do with Hoggard's resilience and Harmison's natural ability than anything else - Jones doesn't have a lot of natural ability (although his cover drive is very handy), but he can't resist a swing if it's in the slot - you only have to look at a couple of his dismissals this summer to know that he's a bit of a have-a-go hero, whereas Harmison just bats as if he's playing OD cricket, as opposed to slogging like Jones.

    But if you're going to have a no11 in your club side, he might as well be a Test match quick bowler eh?

    Bob for me.

    A combination of Dravid and Vettori would be awesome!

    Anyone want to join the Society?

    Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.

    I wouldn't mind if Bradman came down from Heaven and joined our side... Yep, even at that age.
    We miss you, Fardin. :(. RIP.
