    I agree. In his ATG England team Bradman preferred Grace to Botham as the allrounder batting at No.6
    Len Hutton - Jack Hobbs - Ted Dexter - David Gower - Walter Hammond - Frank Woolley - Ian Botham - Alan Knott - Hedley Verity - John Snow - Fred Trueman

    I thought Bradman's lineup was....

    Morris
    Richards
    Bradman
    Tendulkar
    Sobers
    Tallon
    Lindwall
    Lillee
    Bedser
    O'Reilly
    Grimmett

    Unless you're talking about Bradman's ashes XI? Although I don't think Grace made that either tbh
    Oh for a strong arm and a walking stick

    6. Grace
    7. Evans
    8. Trueman
    9. Bedser
    10. Barnes
    11. Verity

    12th Botham

    As usual Bradman prefers his tail long.

    I don't mind this XI as much as some people do, but the selection of Bedser surprises me (although I rate him very highly).

    Tallon batting at 6 is ridiculous imo. Lindwall was a better batsman than him (clearly). I fail to understand why Bradman didn't select Miller in place of Bedser, and avoid the ridiculous tail his team has...

    Morris
    Richards
    Bradman
    Tendulkar
    Miller
    Sobers
    Lindwall
    Tallon
    Lillee
    O'Reilly
    Grimmett

    Sorry mate, no way was Lindwall a better batsman than Tallon I can only assume you say that having only considered test match averages. Tallon at 6 is obviously a questionable call though.

    Bradman was certainly not Miller's greatest fan, something that I can't help but think affected his decision

    Maybe Bradman was put off Miller because of his habitual womenising. It would certainly go against his grain.

    About half an hour (I think) if the 12 hour rule is active.

    Only five minutes to go, Marcuss will hopefully get back to me just in time - or maybe not, so we're guaranteed our players
