Oh video footage. WAG.
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 man who is considered the greater gloveman when matched against Knott. That says something.
Bobby Taylor (US President clause)
- Bruce Mitchell
- Victor Trumper
- Mohammad Yousuf
- Sachin Tendulkar
- Martin Crowe
- Charlie Macartney
- Imran Khan*
- Maurice Tate
- Bob Taylor+
- Stuart MacGill
- Allan Donald
Oh for a strong arm and a walking stick

Haha I see what you mean by a very "Jager-ish" pick, Jager.
As for me, I'll go for the greatest captain of all-time in Douglas Jardine, to complete my XI. Would love to see him with this bowling attack at his disposal.
Undecided on batting order as things stand. Will probably open with Jardine and push Jackson to 3. Or maybe Kallis could move to 3, with Pietersen to 4 and Jardine to 5.

Sorry for the irregularity.
Been a pretty busy couple of weeks for me, and mostly i log in from my phone on CW these days and can't do proper research on it. Will try and do my picks today.

My bowling attack will be :
All you need is 3-4 simple contingencies, jot them down somewhere, and then e-mail/SMS one of them to someone when it's your turn. You can liason with anyone on CricketWeb. It doesn't even have to be Jager. They keep an eye on Draft thread for you and then nominate a player on your behalf.
I have concluded that you are either disorganised or lack the ability to forward-plan Cevno, with the underlying assumption being that you are in the draft because you want to be.

Bert Oldfield (Not picked in previous drafts) for my next pick please
Charter 77 So Far
Sourav Ganguly (*)
Bert Oldfield (+)
Amazing that Oldfield hasn't been selected in a previous draft. Imo he is Australia's best pure gloveman ever, and he was no dud with the bat, with an average over 20.
I actually think you have the strongest team Michael, with Sobers and Botham as ARs to balance things nicely...
