Rejecting 'analysis by checklist' and 'skill absolutism' since Dec '09
Fred Spofforth, 'The Demon Speaks'The figures Sir Home Hordon has shown me of what Grace did in matches against me, 37 innings, 1042 runs, 28.16 average, considerably less than his general average, hears out my theory that I never had any particular difficulty in getting him out. I clean bowled him seven times, ACM Croome says that WG told him that on any wicket he never knew when I should bowl him. This may have been due in part to my artfulness......
Gives my pace attack super versatility and variety - left arm and right arm options, seam, swing, reverse from Davo. Can bowl on heartbreaking wickets and now I am free to stack my batting as full as I want... I'm pretty happy with it now!
Oh for a strong arm and a walking stick

You have got to earn the right to be aggressive.
Probably could've waited another round for this'n but I don't really want to risk it with my next pick still 15 players away. One of the greatest cricketers of all time and probably the most under-rated of them all. Someone please cheer me up and tell me they were thinking of picking him next please
I had another South African opener in mind. Not a bad leggie either, and 'superb' in the slips: Bruce Mitchell

Macartney would have been a nice addition too - might grab Kippax as my 12th man actually since no one takes much notice of it
