Wouldn't be an awful five-a-side team, that. Haha.

Get Miller out of the 6 slot Eds!
Where would you play him?
5 or 7 myself, depending on how much you subscribe to his batting genius.
Yeah, he'll end up at 7 I reckon. Well, the keeper would need to be an opener, or a really strong batsman. So, we'll see.
Chester Alan Arthur, 21st President of the United States (1881–1885) = Arthur Dudley Nourse
(And that's the two worst Clauses out the way The other one being 'Bowled Bradman' of course)

Fred Spofforth, 'The Demon Speaks'The figures Sir Home Hordon has shown me of what Grace did in matches against me, 37 innings, 1042 runs, 28.16 average, considerably less than his general average, hears out my theory that I never had any particular difficulty in getting him out. I clean bowled him seven times, ACM Croome says that WG told him that on any wicket he never knew when I should bowl him. This may have been due in part to my artfulness......
