Nice looking team there Michael. Glad that you went for Healy so as give Sanga a decent go with the bat. What's his post keeping average again - about 70 runs?
Yes, Peter May was famous for being the best batsman in the whole world, slaughtering all bowlers with classic drives, cuts and pull shots, and generally pulverising the opposition into dust. Obviously several times better than Donald Bradman by a factor of 10.
He's mine and you can't have him, so there.
Some do say greater than Hutton though.
Lost May, Walters & Clarke

I know I'm prone to crap on a bit, and I have shown the following video before - but this square drive by Kanhai off Jeff Thomson is something special. It's very much stuck in my head, and for mine, the best shot I've seen on video;

John Waite to be my keeper
Feel very good about my team. Plenty of highly capable batsmen left
