    Australian ATG Team- Open Voting

    The idea is to piece together a collective ATG Australian team by open voting, in a similar fashion to Nufan's World XIs.

    I will provide a list of options for each of the positions, and leave them up for a few days. Post your selections in each category as we go.

    The categories will be:

    Openers (2)

    Number 3 batsman (1)

    Middle order batsmen (3)

    Wicketkeeper (1)

    Bowling attack (4)


    Players who would/might fit in to an all-round category will be included in either the list of batsmen, or the list for bowlers, or both (in some cases). For instance, Miller will be included as a middle order batsman, and as a bowling option, while Lindwall/Davidson will be included as bowling options only. This allows choice in team structure, rather than making an AR mandatory for teams.

    If you feel I've forgotten someone, feel free to suggest them. Once this one is complete, we will move to the next nation.

    Simpson & Trumper


    I want Trumper in the side, and he's got less competition here than for a middle order slot.

    No votes for Matt Hayden yet. A little bit of a surprise.

    he loses points for breaking Don's record for Aussie test players against Zimbos.

    I vote trumper and Ponsford.
    I got great enjoyment shouting "WHY THE **** ISN'T THIS GAME BEING PLAYED AT THE BASIN?!>!?!?" to reasonably significant cheers from the sparse crowd
    one day NZ will bring chappell to his knees in a puddle of his own tears and you'll see Phlegm on his belly greedily tasting every delicious tear before watching the hope fade from that old ****s eyes.
    Overrated XI Warner, Rutherford, Steve Smith, Rahane, Bairstow, Alecz Day, Donovan Grobelaar, Luke Ronchi, Faulkner, Dan Christian, Permaul

    I also suggest we don't bother voting on the number 3 batsman.

    Trumper and Simpson

    I find it hard to split Lawry and Simpson as batsmen, but Simpson offers a bit more as an overall cricketer for me so he gets the nod.
