Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.
Besides, I never heard his captain, bowlers, or the press complain about his keeping. To me that indicates that he was more than just OK. He was also well liked and respected as an individual of quality, and as a 'team player'.......
“I'm writing a book on magic”, I explain, and I'm asked, “Real magic?” By real magic people mean miracles, thaumaturgical acts, and supernatural powers. “No”, I answer: “Conjuring tricks, not real magic”. Real magic, in other words, refers to the magic that is not real, while the magic that is real, that can actually be done, is not real magic.”
― Lee Siegel, 'Net of Magic: Wonders and Deceptions in India'
Snow and Hall win with 4 each. Healy is our keeper, providing decent batting and more importantly, excellent glovework. Kumble thrashed his competition and is our spinner. Hall bats in front of snow because he has a FC century, otherwise they are quite average tailenders.

Walters is a fantastic choice at the moment. Great batsman, useful trundler as a fifth.
No.6. Laxman! Period!
