    I'm sure that it was a superb knock. Any double century is superb by definition because of the endurance it requires. However, we assess ATGs in relative terms.

    Is 206 made during the 4th Test (1951) when Australia is already leading 3 to blot, carry the same value as 130 made during the second Test at Lords (1961) with the first Test drawn?

    Especially as those 130 runs were made against Trueman and Statham trying to knock Lawry's head-off, and McDonald + Simpson back in the pavillion with the score at 6 runs. I can't imagine that Morris was under the same kind of pressure.

    I think inclusion of Morris is lot to do with the fact that not only did he score heavily but by the manner he used to impose domination and his elegant playing style adds to the charm as well

    These numbers are conclusive thus far - Morris and Trumper to open.

    Well said. I'll put the middle order options up. I'm guessing Braddles'll be at #3?

    Legitimately surprised at all the Morris love. Middle order options need more Clem Hill though.

    Added. Thought I'd put him in. He was on my mind because he's become one of Jager's love children.

    Ponting
    Border


    For me the real debate is whether a fifth "proper" bowler is needed (Miller in all likelihood) or if a better batsman should be included.

    In the end I thought the younger Chappell's mediums and Captain Grumpy's SLAs were decent enough 5th & 6th bowler options in light of who I imagine will fill the bowling positions.

    "The committee discussed the issue of illegal bowling actions, and believed that there are a number of bowlers currently employing suspect actions in international cricket, and that the ICC's reporting and testing procedures are not adequately scrutinising these bowlers."
    - Even the ICC's own official press release thinks things must change
