    I was hoping Mitchel would last another round.

    Probably a wise time for me to complete my pace attack. Plenty of high quality choices left but Peter Pollock is a better bat than most of them. I'm sure he'll also enjoy playing with his brother.

    2.Herbert Sutcliffe
    3.Viv Richards
    4.Graeme Pollock

    Was worried you were going to take him last round.

    Took a bit of a gamble there actually. I figured he might last another round so I went with Hanif.

    What's the logic behind 3. Kallis 4. Border? Surely you push them both down one?

    I agree.........

    KALLIS

    78 innings at No.3. Average = 39.71
    152 innings at No.4 Average = 49.35

    That is a significant drop in average. Clearly Kallis is more comfortable against an older ball. Also, he will be bowling more than usual because he is your first change seam bowler. Batting lower down the order gives him more of a rest.

    BORDER

    36 innings at No.3. Average = 47.09
    61 innings at No.4. Average = 50.44
    56 innings at No.5. Average = 52.05
    45 innings at No.6. Average = 52.16

    It appears Border can bat anywhere. Although from memory he had a torrid time against the West Indian quicks at first drop. Because he is a defensive batsman he would be more useful propping up the batting order at 5 or 6, not counter attacking at No.3 - in my opinion.

    Interesting that both are significantly lower than his career average. Did he make most of his runs at 5 or 6?

    Sorry my mistake! I was looking at the Strike Rate column. Derr.

    No.3 = 49.77
    No.4 = 64.26
    No.5 = 42.71

    Fortunately for me the point still stands. Kallis enjoys the older ball better at No.4. Although 49.77 is still a superb average at No.3

    Incidently, Border's figures are correct. There is no adjacent Strike Rate column in his stats to confuse my brain.
