    I'll throw possibly Australia's greatest ever sportsperson Laurie Nash a vote. May we also add him to the shortlist?

    In this team, if you needed quick wickets then you'd have Chandra bowling in tandom with either Mushtaq or Sylvestor Clarke. Prassana and Streak could be brought back after the break-through to keep the pressure on.
    Nah, not having it.

    One of them actually took nearly two wickets an innings. And name me a successful team with only two pace bowling options. In the end, the fifth bowler isn't going to be bowling a huge amount anyway, the time that he'll be needed in this side is the 10-25th over while the ball is still new and the quicks are tired.

    Was surprising to see three spinners for sure, it would have been better if they were all frontline bowlers but it is an interesting side.

    The Q XI promised so much, but finished rather disappointingly. Martyn is going to be forced to bowl a few overs of his mediums. I think John R Reid would have been a fine addition, perhaps a slightly underrated performer.

    I thought I used it, I'll get on it. I used the other ones though, must have just forgot to go back to my profile to get the other ones.
