    Tie-breaker for 2nd Opener in 1946-65 World test XI

    This is a 3-day tie-breaker for the 2nd Opener for the 1946-65 World Test XI (since we couldn't decide which of the three below should partner Len Hutton):

    Hanif Mohammad (Pak): 48 tests, 3584 runs @ 44.80 (11/15) HS 337 ----- (2578 @ 42.96)

    Arthur Morris (Aus): 46 tests, 3533 runs @ 46.48 (12/12) HS 206 ----- (3381 @ 45.68)

    Bob Simpson (Aus): 41 tests, 2999 runs @ 45.43 (4/19) HS 311 ----- (2599 @ 52.22) ----- 37 wkts @ 47.21


    btw, the 1946-65 World Test XI so far:

    1. Len Hutton
    2. ................
    3. Clyde Walcott

    I will vote for Hanif Mohammad seeing as how Sutcliffe didn't make it into the tie breaker.

    Sorry earlier openers thread I got Hazare and Hanif mixed up - my bad.

    Anyway, therefore I shall revote (and despite my liking for a left/right hand combination of Morris and Hutton) and cast my ballot in favour of Hanif Mohammed and Len Hutton.

    it has to be morris. hanif is also a dour player like hutton. and a right hander. morris would bring in more exciting stroke play and help upset the line of opening bowlers with the left - right combination.

    I originally voted Simpson - but given he's not going to get up, out of Hanif and Morris, I choose Morris, for the reasons Bagapath outlined.

    Couldn't split them, so I looked at how the voting was going and ended up going for Hanif to even it up.
