    Bradman
    Chappell
    Harvey
    Miller

    so far. Should have gone Ponting over Harvey but I'm sure he'll get enough votes. Was also tempted to vote in Armstrong just for the hell of it.

    Steve Waugh # 5

    I dont know how others view this. But i have always been of the opinion when picking the AUS ATXI, that Waugh @ his 90s best, is the perfect # 5. Few batsmen played this position better in test history better.

    Especially if you have God & Chapell, 3 & 4. Plus Miller & Gilchrist 6 & 7. You can sacrifice the having the flare of Ponting or Harvey @ 5 for Waugh.

    Dr. Warne, because of his dealings with the Saffie nurse in 2002...

    I kinda agree with you. Waugh of the 90s was amazing and, if anything, underrated. I would, for instance, take Waugh of the 90s vs Tendulkar of the 90s. That's how good he was then.
