    Haha yeah. "Arguably" would've been fair enough, but "undoubtedly" was a bit much.

Really, really happy with my new ball combination since I finished it off in Round 5, after a lot of others.

    Don't really think you need the qualifier of middle order only - Bradman, Chappell, Ponting, Border, Harvey, Waugh and McCabe all come before the opening options anyway afaic.

    I'd take Trumper ahead of McCabe personally, but yeah, pretty much.

    Yeah, it's a massive insult to Matthew Elliott to even dare suggest that he's not amongst Australia's best seven batsmen of all time. Rating someone like Ricky Ponting ahead of him is downright blasphemous.

    (seriously dude, wtf?)

    Haha yeah. Even Jager's names were a bit of a stretch for "huge insult" but Slater and Elliott? Really?
