    Between O'reilly, Grimmet and Verity for me.

    W.J. O'Reilly. Though I'm tempted to go with Ironmonger for the extra batting strength he'd bring to the line-up.

    The original ferret?

    His wife rang up the dressing rooms at MCG to speak to him, when she was informed that her husband had just gone out to bat, she replied; "i'll wait"
    You know it makes sense.

    This is a very tough one. I could make strong cases for a number of the guys listed.

    However, I've always been a huge fan of Verity and even if not allowed I have taken into consideration his incredible feats in the County Championship.

    Verity

    well, nothing wrong with that choice. i have sometimes wonderd how verity would have felt when he was shot (and later died in a POW camp) in sicily in WWII. would he have dreamt of those glorious summer days in england when the world was peaceful and he was playing the gentlman's game in front of an adoring audience? of those wonderful seasons spent playing county matches, taking wickets and drinking beer with mates? did he replay those of moments of success against bradman and other aussies? war sucks.

    i have gone for oreilly. too many people rate him the best. cant find anything wrong with his record either.

    Clarrie Grimmet - 80 more wickets than O'Reilly in just 11 more Tests...mind you I think the "Tiger" should get the last bowling place...
    Ian Botham, Freddie Flintoff, Kevin Pietersen, Brian Laudrup, Gazza and Daniela Hantuchova....a fan of you all FOREVER!!!
    Can't wait to see Australia field a crap leg-spinner like Hollland or Hohns again.....
    Congratulations to Daniela Hantuchova on her 3rd career title....
    Bob Woolmer 1948-2007..farewell to the best coach England never had...
    Arise Sir Beefy....
