    That was the theory at least. I'm not quite sure who I'm going to pick, but I have a couple of ideas.

    01. Geoff Boycott
    02. Hanif Mohammad
    03. Brian Lara
    04. Dudley Nourse
    05. Vijay Hazare (5)
    06. Javed Miandad
    07. Imran Khan * (2)
    08. Ray Lindwall (1)
    09. Jackie Hendriks +
    10.
    11. Joel Garner (3)

    This is how the team works;

    Boycott to act as the anchor with Hanif to play an attacking role from the outset. If Boycott fails then Hanif to revert to a more defensive role.

    Both Nourse and Hazare are to farm the strike to Lara who will play his usual aggressive style (Note: Lara averaged 60.46 at No.3). Nourse to be the aggressor if Lara fails. Hazare becomes the anchor in the event of a top order collapse due to his excellent defensive technique.

    Miandad to play the usual attacking role of the No.6 batsman, and perhaps farm the strike to Imran or Lindwall who can hit out if they get settled. Miandad has the perfect style to protect the 9-10-11 tail by manipulating the strike.

    Lindwall and Imran to open the bowling with the new ball, but one of them to have a shorter spell so Garner is able to utilise the remaining shine on the new ball. The spinner to be used as per usual, and Hazare should not be under-bowled. His round-arm swing bowling seems like a good partnership breaker as his 595 FC wickets at 25 runs a piece indicates. Good enough to catch Bradman off guard twice.

    Team so far:

    01. Charles Bannerman
    02. Trevor Goddard
    03. Neil Harvey
    04. Dennis Compton
    05. Steve Waugh*
    06. Kevin Pietersen
    07. Ian Botham
    08.
    09. Bill O'Reilly
    10. Shoaib Akthar
    11. Sydney Barnes

    Clauses left:
    - Team Blackout

    Flamboyant attacking batsmen? Ugh, sooo not my style.

    This could well be one of the strangest sides I've put together as I never end up picking these sort of players (barring one or two regulars perhaps). Fairly certain I've missed a trick or two in this draft by playing it too safe.

    Hard to say what sort of pitch would suit my attack. It'll likely be tailored to suit Barnes and O'Reilly.
