    It seems that by the mid 1920s Herbie Taylor was very highly regarded by the British media. I wonder who the other two batsman are? Hobbs would be one I'd imagine.
    Sutcliffe for sure
    Oh for a strong arm and a walking stick

    Yes, probably Sutcliffe. Although Charles Macartney is in with a shot as Australia's premier batsman of the 1920s. Warren Bardesley was probably past it by 1924 although they both retired in 1926.

    unconventional SA XI

    1. Barry Richards
    2. Bruce Mitchell
    3. Herbie Taylor
    4. Graeme Pollock
    5. Dudley Nourse
    6. Aubrey Faulkner
    7. Lee Irvine+
    8. Clive Rice
    9. Mike Procter
    10. Van der Bijl
    11. Allan Donald

    I believe this team has the potential to challenge any ATG XI. Actually this is my favorite SA XI with Colin Bland as 12th man.

    Omitting the second greatest allrounder is a tad 'unconventional'.

    Weird right I know but can't find a place albeit Kallis love. The only player from that XI I can take out maybe is Rice, but I dont want to bat Kallis in any lower than 5. Herbie Taylor might make a room for Kallis at no 3 but if matches are played in difficult pitches, Herbie Taylor is needed.

    Or, maybe the solution is to put Herbie Taylor to open instead of Bruce Mitchell and play Kallis at 3; but this is not a serious XI, made it just for fun.

    indeed
    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta

    Just reading and considering the all-rounder thread and wondering how much you can mess around with all-rounders in an ATG team before it fails on you...

    Jack Hobbs
    Sunil Gavaskar
    Don Bradman
    Garfield Sobers
    Keith Miller
    Adam Gilchrist (wk)
    Imran Khan
    Richie Benaud (c)
    Richard Hadlee
    Wasim Akram
    Malcolm Marshall

    -Only three players selected as batsmen alone. They are highly capable.
    -Number 11 has a batting average of almost 20.
    -Sobers, Miller and Gilchrist form a highly attacking middle order.
    -Lower order of Imran, Benaud, Hadlee and Akram would make collapses highly unlikely.
    -Seven genuine bowling options mean that all out attack on the batting team when bowling.

    I think Ian Smith is overrated as a wicketkepper against McCullum and, to a lesser extent, Parore, due to the fact that he played in New Zealand's most successful era.

    I'd take McCullum over him anyday.

    And no New Zealand team should leave out Bert Sutcliffe.

    Not a bad team at all

    Ian Smith was a fine keeper, and a very good actor as well.
