    Could reel off a long list of forgotten ATG's I reckon... still plenty of legendary batsmen to go! Bowling on the other hand...

    And t here goes the last two gold tier ATGs. As I said I never thought they would last any way. Great picks this late.
    Edit: One spinner still left.

    Honestly wondered if Grimmett would come down to me.

    I seriously considered taking Grimmett with the last pick I had and putting him in tandem with Warne. But I felt it was greedy, and I needed Harvey!

    Eds and Blakus are famous for taking players I hope to get, so I'm not too surprised that I lost him. Having said that, this draft has allowed me to pick some of my favourite players so far, barring Hadlee and Trueman. This is going fairly well.

    Must have been distracted by the ironing, Lord of the Rings, and mucking-up kids.

    Great team Monk. Harvey was probably the right the way to go. Although Warne and Grimmett would have been awesome together despite being farely similar.

    I was thinking similar. Murali and Grimmett would be a an awesome spin duo. But like you I decided to ensure that I had a strong batting line-up

    This team is just about a work of art I reckon. An appropriate link between Richards and Kanhai will completely set it off.

    01. Barry Richards
    02.
    03. Rohan Kanhai
    04. Greg Chappell
