RIP Craig Walsh (Craig) 1985-2012
Proudly supporting the #2 cricketer of all time.
marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!
Anyone want to join the Society?
Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.
Head says Faulkner, heart says Woolley for the batsman who can bowl spot in the team.
John Snow was an easy pick. Best English quick to pull on boots.
Faulkner and Snow it is.

'You will look very silly said Mr Salteena with a dry laugh.
Well so will you said Ethel in a snappy tone and she ran out of the room with a very superier run throwing out her legs behind and her arms swinging in rithum.
Well said the owner of the house she has a most idiotick run.'
Jager, I think you used an old suggested batsman list - Sangakkara, Lloyd, Macartney are all chosen.
1 Ted Dexter, Martin Crowe and Doug Walters
2 Bill Lawry and Conrad Hunte - I love these two as a pair, I just think they would work superbly together.
1) Inzamam ul-Haq, Mohammad Yousuf, Mahela Jayawardene
2) Graeme Smith, Dennis Amiss
