    How about Daren Lehmann?
    Yeah they probably will be fillers. Lehmann sounds alright.
    How about Geoff Lawson or Jack Ryder for the last spot.

    Certainly deserves to be in there ahead of some of the fillers. I'll put him instead of D Fleming.

    We'll start at 0900 GMT. So thats a half hour from now. It'll give people a chance to review the list.

    The rest of the 64 would be at an utter disadvantage if I included him.

    Sorry for the delay, my computer was acting up. Making a battle now.

    All the battles have selected by a randomizer, so nobody blame me for the matchups.

    Round 1, Battle 1

    Alan Davidson

    44 matches, 1328 runs @ 24.59 | 186 wickets @ 20.53



    vs

    Jack Ryder

    20 matches, 1394 runs @ 51.62 | 17 wickets @ 43.70

    Alan Davidson for me - the finest left armer before Wasim (not that there are all that many to choose from!).

    Btw, I do not know if this is too late but, can we put Don Tallon in for a filler?

    On what grounds? His test career didn't last long and wasn't impressive, and yes I realize he got a late start.

    My word, Test match bias. Bevan's not even in.

    Davidson for me.
