    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......

    I might have played Hussey ahead of Kumble. Faulkner can be the sole spinner and bat at 6 imo.

    I'd probably leave Snow out instead.

    That's one good possibility. The other one is;

    01. Herbert Sutcliffe /
    02. Matthew Hayden /
    03. Ian Chappell / ( c )
    04. Graeme Pollock /
    05. Aubrey Faulkner / o (5)
    06. Mike Hussey /
    07. Denis Lindsay + /
    08. Anil Kumble o / (4)
    09. Malcolm Marshall o (1)
    10. John Snow o (3)
    11. Dennis Lillee o (2)

    Good batting depth and plenty of fire-power in both spin and fast bowling.

    But I'm still not sure which of those 3-4 possible line-ups is best.

    I rank Marshall, Lillee, Botham and Snow higher than Kumble, so it's fairly straightforward for me. Having 4 quicks + Faulkner is a good enough attack. I think Joe did that once in a scorecard draft iirc.

    Thats why I won that Scorecard Draft, Sam! I had 2 spinners in O'Reilly ( No, I am not comparing him with Jumbo ) and Faulkner.

    I thought you won because you had Bradman.

    Yep that also works. With Dennis Lindsay at No.8 the batting goes on forever.
