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.
Barnes in this match revealed himself once more as one of the most remarkable bowlers that this country has ever produced. He has a positively wonderful command of the leg break.... His great height makes it difficult for the batsman to follow the flight of the ball. He is useful on every kind of wicket, whereas few bowlers of his pace are able to bowl on a sticky wicket. - JACK HOBBS, 'My Cricket Memories' (1924)
As usual my second pick not getting any votes so will switch from Gillespie to Croft.

"I want to raise my hand and say one thing. Those who complain about my love for the game or commitment to the game are clueless. These are the only 2 areas where I give myself 100 out of 100."
- Sachin Tendulkar, as told in an interview published in Bengali newspaper Anandabazar Patrika after his 100th International century (translated by weldone)

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.
Gower, Crowe, Hazare
Hassett, Crowe, Kanhai
