The first day, they would face an attack of Marshall, McGrath, Ambrose and Lillee on a green, bouncy, seaming pitch. The second day would be rained out and on the third day the wicket morphs into a sticky wicket of old, and you have to face an attack of Underwood, Warne, Murali, and one of the fast bowlers above.
Obviously the odds are way against you, and even the best partnership may have only 1% chance to survive, but if you had to pick the people with the best chance of doing it, who would it be?
- Scenario 1: Their job is to not get out for two days. Runs are unimportant, they just cannot get out.
- Scenario 2: Their job is to score a double century each in those two days. They may get out after scoring a double.
- Scenario 3: Pick the same two above scenarios but the players can't be from the country you support (and can't be Bradman).
Which ones would you pick for each scenario? Oh, and you can't pick Bradman. Remember, pick two people per scenario. You may pick the same people for each scenario if you wish, or different ones.
So you could now have up to eight names (four players for each of the first two, and then four more players for the same two - though players could obviously repeat).
