    Was quite sure Marcuss would select Prior that round, so I picked him too, half as a block and half for myself, but in the end I picked him up. Couldn't be happier with my batting lineup now

    2. Graeme Smith*
    3. Rahul Dravid
    4. Stan McCabe

    Happy to get Clarke there. Felt I needed one more solid consistent batsman in my XI. Also continues the theme of excellent fielders in my XI, Clarke joining Chappell, Lara, Miller and Woolley as outstanding fieldsmen


    Abbott's XI

    1. Sunil Gavaskar
    2.
    3. Ian Chappell (c)
    4. Brian Lara
    5. Keith Miller (vc)

    7. Frank Woolley
    8. Kapil Dev
    9.
    10. John Snow

    Interesting bowling line-up. The team effectively has no less than 9 bowlers if you think about it;

    Right-Arm Fast = 2
    Left-Arm Fast-Medium = 1
    Left-Arm Orthodox Spin = 2
    Right-Arm Medium (Swing) = 1
    Right-Arm Off-Break = 1
    Right-Arm Leg-Break = 2

    Because of Mike Proctor I'll be interested to see whether you go another all-rounder like KK or opt for a specialist batsman at No.6?
    Cheers, I think Procter was one of the greatest bowling talents of the 20th century, so he's a certain frontline bowler for me. His batting is almost an afterthought here. McCabe is my fifth, quite a nippy and enthusiastic medium pacer from what I've read, so I'll most likely go for a specialist batsman - I'd take Clive Rice if I could though

    And Proctor was one of a hand-full of batsman to score 4 first class centuries in a row.

    McCabe had a decent off-cutter if I remember rightly.

    Procter actually managed 6 if I remember correctly, when he was playing for Rhodesia - a genuine all-round superhero

    Your'e right, it was 6 in a row. Apparently only Bradman and CB Fry have done likewise.

    I agree with your batting order KK. Flintoff scored more centuries, but Goddard was a more classy batsman.

    I actually began typing 'Wilfred Rhodes' in my e-mail to Jager as I though it would be neat having Barnes and Rhodes bowling in tandem again.

    However, I changed my mind at the last minute and went for a different left-armer as I thought that Lindwall and Johnston were two 'Invincibles' that should be reunited again. Plus I like the idea of having two bowlers in my team that can bowl 'anything'. Barnes and Johnston.
