    VVS Laxman

    Rejecting 'selection deontology' since Mar '15
    'Stats' is not a synonym for 'Career Test Averages'

    I wouldn't worry too much Himannv. Tallon will be just fine standing-up at the stumps to Alec Bedser.

    Indeed. I was extremely close to picking Tony Grieg but it just looked so much worse on paper than having Laxman at 6 and Walcott at 7. If these teams were judged more as twelve man squads to take around the world then having Griegy along with what my Round 12 pick will be would've made it a more versatile squad for different conditions IMO but I decided to go for on-paper first XI strength. Sold my soul etc.

    Reckon Himannv's a bowler short. Ought to have taken an allrounder ahead of Paynter.

    I'm a big believer in having just 4 bowlers, particularly if they are 4 very good ones. I suppose there is a risk involved if one of them gets injured or something.

    I could get an allrounder in the last round, but in all honesty I'm unlikely to play him ahead of Paynter.
