    Cheers, but there's still a long to go.

    Will pick after I've dropped my brief case, put my slippers on, and made a cup of cocoa.

    And hopefully before Marcuss wakes-up to unfurl himself from Jemima and Big Ted.

    Good pick that. Spent ages debating between him and Adcock. Tossed a coin in the end

    Yeah, I had Adcock and Walsh penciled in and ready to go (along with two other possibilities that I was umming and arring about) because I wasn't sure who you would pick. Actually prefer Adcock as a new ball quick, but Walsh works quite well as a first-change 'work-horse' to Lillee and Roberts.

    You have three very attacking fast bowlers Blackus. Which two would you open the attack with?

    Lindwalls' fast outswingers combined with Garners' disconcerting bounce sounds ideal to me.
    Adcock makes for a relentless first change and Verity will keep them bottled-up. One of the better attacks I've made

    I would agree with that!

    And with the 'Bowled Bradman' & 'US Presidents' clauses gone, plus the post-WWII clause still to come, you should be able to coast home.

    Excellent pick from Watson yet again. Would have gone Walsh over Adcock by a long way, myself.

    I'll take another West Indian quick via the 'debut after WWII' clause in Michael Holding.

    Well done. He was sitting there for ages. I thought everyone had forgotten him, and I was hoping I'd get him very late.

    Really versatile bowling attack you have there. The inclusion of Miller, Dev, Kallis and Walcott as quality all rounders means you have a fair bit of flexibility now. Well played!
