    Good to hear from you again Andy! As you can see we're still arguing over the same stuff and having fun.
    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......

    The Merchant Clause is getting tight. Time to act now I think;

    Vijay Hazare via the Merchant Clause.

    (Glad to have got rid of both the Debut and Merchant Clauses which were the most difficult and restrictive of the Clauses)


    01.
    02.
    03.
    04. Brian Lara
    05. Vijay Hazare
    06.
    07. Imran Khan
    08.
    09. Jackie Hendriks
    10.
    11.

    I would be a bit of a dodgy **** with the Merchant clause if I was playing tbh.

    And I reckon it would be decided you were in the wrong
    "Played in a Test involving Merchant" then what you'd want to do would be fine
    "Played in a Test with Merchant" Nahhhh

    Presumably you'd pick someone from a game where Merchant was a match referee or something? Pretty obviously against the spirit of things if so, people would just tell you to do one.
    No one ever talks about 'the weak, silent type'. When's their moment?

    01. Must have debuted in test cricket as a teenager
    02. Pick someone who played test cricket for a country they weren't born in. Eg, born in France played for England
    03. Choose a player who scored their highest score in test cricket in their debut test match
    04. Involved in a test with Vijay Merchant.
    05. A player with a fredfertang feature about them
    06. Choose a player who is classified as a legspinner on Cricinfo.
    07. A player representing the nation you have not/will not pick another player from.
    08. Must be listed on a Lord's Honour Board.
    09. Captained against a side captained by Warwick Armstrong, Don Bradman, Richie Benaud, Ian Chappell or Mark Taylor
    10. Must have been dismissed by or dismissed the player picked before you.
    11. Must be involved in a 9th wicket (Test match) partnership of 100 runs or more.

    I did think about twisting the Merchant Clause. But I couldn't be arsed getting into a **** fight regarding the definition of the word 'with'. Marcuss has made a good point.

    Anyways, happy with Vijay Hazare at No.5.

    I'll tell you who I would've picked when everyone's done that clause.

    (Yes yes, we've all done our home-work, so I'm not disclosing a hidden player here. But even if you've haven't done your home-work, you're welcome to him anyway. All yours.)
