    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 + Lawry
    "I strongly feel the ICC should take action to ban the doosra since it just cannot be bowled legally. Ashley Mallett has said the 'doosra is nothing but chucking' and Australian spinners, including Shane Warne, have raised an alarm against coaching it in Australia." - BISHAN BEDI (2010)

    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.

    Proudly against the bring back Bennett movement since he is injury prone and won't last 5 days.

    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.
