    Jager -- Possibly a scorecard error

    see

    15 January 1938: South Australia played a Sheffield Shield match v New South Wales in Sydney. Because South Australia's regular wicket-keeper had a broken finger Bradman kept wickets, stumping one & taking 3 catches

    I've read that before I think - I wasn't doubting you by the way, I just thought it was strange!

    You've likely got more idea than me. I just googled bradman + wicketkeeping and this poped up.

    My comment was more as a possible explaination.

    Since this is the last round, I am going to give extra time to the people who haven't made selections

    We need to let the reserve league catch up, so it's better we do the waiting game now instead of later when we want to start season 3

    Hope you're all having good weekends!

    Half tempted to play Heine and Adcock after reading Martin Chandlers essay;

    Cricket Web - Features: The Dutchman and the Avalanche

    As to Heine the man Laker wrote He was a fearsome figure, his black hair straggling over his eyes and a great red streak across the front of his shirt, on which he viciously polished the ball. Years later Graveney commented I was never sure what was his main interest in life - hitting the stumps or knocking batsman over ... he kept coming at you from a short length as if he were trying to bully you into error.

    There are, inevitably, some famous and well-worn stories. In 1956/57 Heine felled England opener Peter Richardson with a bouncer and glared at him as he lay on the wicket and snarled Get up - I want to knock you down again. By way of further confirmation of his character Laker commented ...his attitude to the job was simple. He bowled at the batsman as often as he bowled at the wicket. Although Bailey himself made no complaint of the incident Laker would also tell a story about an animated Heine warning that most obdurate of all-rounders, I want to hit you, Bailey ..... I want to hit you over the heart. Why didn't Bailey complain? He was as hard as nails of course and, at the time, he was taking guard a yard outside his crease in order to disrupt Heine's length - I would think he was far too busy taking pleasure in having succeeded in his ploy than worrying about the occasional threat.

    But if Heine was the bogeyman Adcock lost little or nothing in comparison. South African journalist Charles Fortune said of him Adcock in action is the very picture of what a fast bowler should be. His entire action is beautiful to behold and his pace a shade hotter than that of his contemporaries. From the perspective of an England batsman Graveney wrote; Somebody remarked once that arm bowlers could not be really fast. Well, he (Adcock) was as near to being an arm bowler as anyone I have ever seen, and he was decidedly quick. Adcock's teammate and sometime captain Jackie McGlew had this to say in his autobiography; Adcock I must rate, technically, as the finest new-ball bowler produced in South Africa during my career. He had the priceless asset of extracting pace and disconcerting lift from the most lifeless of pitches........

    There have been some fine pairs of opening bowlers for South Africa since the 1950s. The next pair, sadly unfulfilled, were Pollock and Procter, and their natural successors, Procter and Van der Bijl, never played so much as a single Test. Since readmission we have seen Donald and De Villiers, Pollock and Ntini, and Steyn and Morkel, but none have quite the same ring as Heine and Adcock nor, in my view anyway, have any of them been quite as intimidating.

    In a bit of a pickle here. Noble or Statham?
    Noble is the superior all-round cricketer and enhances my all-ready strong batting depth, but Statham is the better bowler. What do you guys think?

    1.Virender Sehwag
    2.Michael Slater
    3.Clem Hill
    4.Denis Compton
    5.Stanley Jackson(6)
    6.Ian Botham(5)
    7.Adam Gilchrist+
    8.Richie Benaud*(4)
    9.Alan Davidson(1)
    10.Wes Hall(2)
    11.Brian Statham(3)

    or

    1.Virender Sehwag
    2.Michael Slater
    3.Clem Hill
    4.Denis Compton
    5.Stanley Jackson(6)
    6.Ian Botham(3)
    7.Adam Gilchrist+
    8.Monty Noble(4)

    I would personally go for the first team there. The bowling is probably more important than the batting in that case

    Abbott's XI

    1. Sunil Gavaskar
    2. Roy Fredericks
    3. Ian Chappell (c)
    4. Brian Lara
    5. Keith Miller
    6. Frank Woolley
    7. Farohk Engineer (wk)
    8. Kapil Dev
    9. Jason Gillespie
    10. John Snow
    11. Derek Underwood

    12th- Michael Clarke


    Batting pretty much speaks for itself. We are a super aggressive side who will score quickly, with Gavaskar to anchor things. Fredericks an outstanding opener, Chappell combative and tough at 3, the brilliance of Lara at 4, Miller (hopefully in the right mood) to attack from 5, and the all round brilliant game of Woolley at 6. Then we have Engineer and Kapil, who both averaged in the 30s as test batsmen, at 7 and 8.

    Have decided to make Clarke 12th, as I think we need the pace bowling Gillespie provides. It gives me six genuine bowling options-

    1. John Snow
    2. Keith Miller
    3. Jason Gillespie
    4. Kapil Dev
    5. Derek Underwood
    6. Frank Woolley


    I think strike bowling is important in this type of match, and my three quicks provide that. Miller can be used in short bursts for maximum effectiveness. Chappell is on record saying that Snow was the best quick he ever faced (including the WIs). Gillespie was rated by many to be as difficult as any quick in the world in his prime. Kapil is a fine swing bowler, and Underwood a miserly and effective spinner, especially on pitches suited to spin. Woolley provides left arm medium or slow.

    As a fielding side we are top notch. Chappell, Miller, Fredericks, Woolley and Lara are all fieldsmen of the highest calibre, both in the infield and the cordon.

    One more interesting point to note (that I'd like to say I planned but mostly happened by chance) is my combination of left and right handers-

    Gavaskar (right)
    Fredericks (left)
    Chappell (right)
    Lara (left)
    Miller (right)
    Woolley (left)
    Engineer (right)





    Many thanks to Jager for his organisation of the draft. Great concept and very well run.
