    It only took four minutes whilst using a RNG.

    Will stake my claim by mentioning my recent predictions on Bracken's greatness in ODIs, MacGill's direness, Watson's beautiful face, Jaques entering the Test Side, Johnson not being flash and Stuart Clark having a good start to his Test Career. Off the top of my head. I spend WAY too much time studying cricket from a grade level and along with Pasag and a few others, would be one of the main Aussie contributors in Australian tour threads.

    In the end though, there's a huge amount of worthy contenders in the list above and any combination would be better than the present lot. Maybeh. Best of luck to 'em all.

    Solid looking field, it must be said. Surprised social didn't get the nod too, would've probably got a vote off me if he had.

    Anyway, saggers, Faaip & arch for me. Archie the chairman.

    One vote for Smith, and then one for T_C to balance out the Watson love. Burgey to provide an older hand.

    Smith gets a pick due to his excellent knowledge of the domestic scene. Top_Cat gets my shout as I habitually read anything he has to say in the game, he's an authority, and archie is one of the most knowledgeable people on here, and is incredibly fair.

    Was really tough though, wanted to vote for Gelman, Nath, Wright, Fuller. Not to forget EWS.

    Voted for Burgey, Pasag and Top_Cat. But honestly, could have been any 3 of this list. Easily the toughest poll. Full of worthy contenders. Will probably pick a diff. 3 if you ask me tomm. All the best to everyone.
    We miss you, Fardin. :(. RIP.

    Whoever drops Johnson for Bollinger in the test team straight up gets my vote.

    Can't believe Burgey hasn't got more than 6 votes, to be honest.

    Yeah, thought you would be leading this tbh.

    One of the best posters of both official threads and domestic threads.

    Giving you my sole vote in protest.

    TBF Jack, you're far more likely than anyone else on these forums to be selected. You can't be a selector and be available for selection at the same time (unless you're Bradman).
    That being so, vote for me and ensure your selection .
