    Finally decided to pick Ian Botham as the all-rounder of CricZo. He gives me the option of 3rd fast bowler + attacking No.6 / No.7 batsman and lets not forget about his fielding

    CricZo XI

    1. Herbert Sutcliffe /
    2.
    3.
    4. Graeme Pollock /
    5.
    6. Ian Botham o / (3)

    9. Malcolm Marshall o (1)

    11. Dennis Lillee o (2)

    And now I will have to wait for 2-3 days for my next turn

    Surprisingly so many good players are available but I am damn sure that I will lose all good ones by the time my turn comes.

    Botham's a good pick at this stage though. I was thinking of taking him if he'd fallen to my next selection. He gives you so much flexibility. He is a legitimate third quick, and despite what some reckon, he's good enough to bat at 6, especially if you have a good keeper/batsman at 7.

    Thats what I have in my mind. Hopefully I'll be able to grab it.

    I agree about Punter being 3rd best ( or maybe 2nd best ) Aussie batsman. I was confused between him, Botham and one opener

    Arguably still a bowler or two left who were better, but I do think his pace and aggression will compliment Hadlee far better than what the alternative new ball options would. He's the only bowler still available to have combined those talents with sustained excellence, so I think he's a must pick for me at this point. Really, really happy with my new ball combination since I finished it off in Round 5, after a lot of others.

    Sanga isn't the best off spinner in the history of cricket? News to me.

    Punter being Australia's third best ever is highly debatable
