    Sorry ankitj, it's Rvd's go. My pick was from round 6, not 7. It's Rvd, then me, then you.

    Sorry.

    With Leyland at No.5 your middle-order will have little problem with Bill O'Reilly.

    Average against Australia was 56.83 over 9 years. Great player.

    That's why I selected him ahead of a couple of others; they both had similar Test records overall, but had weaker numbers against England and Australia, respectively.

    Noble opened the bowling on a number of occasions, and in that era it was common for two spinners or a spinner and a medium pacer to open the bowling. Often it was Noble and a spinner.

    2nd Test: Australia v England at Melbourne, Jan 1-4, 1902 | Cricket Scorecard | ESPN Cricinfo

    Check this test out ^^^

    Noble and Barnes ran riot.

    An attack of Larwood, Noble, Grimmett and Hammond is perfect considering the era of this draft. Another spinner seems right to me.
