    Enjoyable and well thought out draft.

    Can't go past NUFAN's team as the best. Any attack lead by Marshall and Hadlee is worthy of number one. Just to top it off probably has the strongest batting lineup too, quality and quantity of bats.

    Two horse race for me between Boybrumbys brilliant top 6 and NUFAN's all round strength.

    Some fine squads.

    Jamee/archie mac's gets my vote; a weak middle order more than made up for by a very fine opening pair and acceptable batting down to nine. Add a decent wickie and a bowling line-up which could be named as an all-time XI in its own right.

    NUFAN's batting line-up might contribute 60 runs more over the match - both have weak fives - but has three bowlers + a crock. Benaud not quite in the class of Warne, either.

    Brumby's XI would draw a lot. Had his bowling as the weakest before realising Sobers will take the spin duties, which at least draws it up to respectability. Would win a County Championship with plenty of English rain and bonus points.

    Notable mention also to the thread starter, with perhaps the strongest batting outside Bradman, but a lack of a threatening spin option hurts.

    Have Holford as my specialist spinner, tbf with Sir Gaz & Junior Waugh as back up if necessary.

    Clearly my bowling much weaker than my batting, but I do at least have plenty of options: 5 credible seamers and 3 spinners.

    I'd probably back Waugh over Holford "look, I average more than el Rey of Spin" with the ball, tbh...

    Bat to 11 + 5 front line bowlers. If they had one more spinner that would make them unbeatable for my money
    You know it makes sense.

    Would go with Michael's team also. Like the look of Brumby's side too but Michael's depth to his team ensures my vote.
