Baldies get Bradman, IMO.
Some insightful articles. Don't necessarily agree with some of them, but good all the same.

An attempt at a balanced allrounders XI. McCartney could come in at 3, but probably at the expense of Miller, and everyone (including me) would hate that.

Faulkner should bat 3 in that side for mine. He never really had a consistent batting position, but he averaged 69 at number 3, hit two of his four Test hundreds there including a career best 204 in Australia and scored 50 or more in six of his nine innings in the position. Fair to say he probably enjoyed it, unlike Kallis who was always reluctant to bat there.
