    Not even playing but I don't think either Adam or Dale should count really. Truman/Trueman is different as it's just spelling, but Adams/Adam aren't the same thing IMO.

    Bit late now. Marcuss would go off his collective faces if we took Gilly away from him
    I am often asked who was the best, fastest or toughest bowler I ever faced and I quite enjoy giving different answers every time. Well, it keeps me amused anyway –but the underlying point is that one could revise this whole list on a daily basis and never really be right and never really be wrong - DAVID GOWER

    The precedent is a one-letter difference and we will stay consistent with that, provided that the name is still pronounced the same
    Oh for a strong arm and a walking stick

    Poor Jager. Probably gone off for a Bex and good lay down.

    Must say though, Pick 3 of Round 5 has been a bit like wading through molasses on a cold day.

    Thought Trumper's average just touches 40 but it appears I was mistaken. In any case, that's a good choice. I had him shortlisted for my next pick.

    I too thought that Trumper was in the league of 40+ and another Aussie was under 40. Made a mistake for sure. Would have made perfect No.3 after Hobbs & Richards...
