    Are we enforcing a 'must vote' rule?

    Voted for Monk for his ace bowling attack and Watson for having the best female cricketer.

    Last was tricky. Nearly went for Blakus but disqualified him for picking Graeme Smith. AZH ran it very close but went for Marcuss in the end.

    Well I was under the impression that it would mean that only I could see the results. Instead it means I have NFI who's voted and everyone can see them regardless

    I'd actually like to change my vote from Blakus to watson. Mistook Bert Sutcliffe for the Bert Sutcliffe.

    WATSON's XI: Strong, stubborn, and dour but animated by the charisma of Dennis Lillee and energised by the exceptional leadership skills of Mark Taylor.

    With NO weak link this is a side that would be exceptionally difficult to beat on any wicket and in any circumstance. A cracking team on the offensive and unbreakable on the defensive. A pragmatists dream come true



    PLAYER HIGHLIGHTS

    No.1 Len Hutton

    62 V Australia, Brisbane 1950
    1st Test: Australia v England at Brisbane, Dec 1-5, 1950 | Cricket Scorecard | ESPN Cricinfo

    Australia batted first and scored 228. But then the wicket turned into a quagmire. England were bowled out for 68 and Australia then replied with 7/32 declared. Hutton and Compton batted at No.8 and No.9 respectively in an effort to let the wicket dry out. In the end Hutton made 62 out of a team score of 122 in what has been described as one of the greatest exhibitions of defensive batting seen.


    No.2 Mark Taylor

    144 V West Indies, Antigua 1991
    5th Test: West Indies v Australia at St John's, Apr 27-May 1, 1991 | Cricket Scorecard | ESPN Cricinfo

    This Test match contained two cracking knocks. First, Mark Waugh’s 139 runs off only 188 balls in the first innings, then Mark Taylor’s 144 runs out of team total of 265 in the second innings. Australia finally ran out winners by 157 runs. The West Indian bowlers were none other than Malcolm Marshall, Curtly Ambrose, Courtney Walsh, Patrick Patterson, and Carl Hooper.


    No.3 Justin Langer

    127 V West Indies, St Johns 1999
    4th Test: West Indies v Australia at St John's, Apr 3-7, 1999 | Cricket Scorecard | ESPN Cricinfo

    Langer’s best innings under pressure before he became an opener. Scored 127 out of 306 in Australia second innings against the bowling of Curtly Ambrose and Courtney Walsh. Australia won the Test match by 176 runs.


    No.4 Walter Hammond

    240 V Australia, Lords 1938
    2nd Test: England v Australia at Lord's, Jun 24-28, 1938 | Cricket Scorecard | ESPN Cricinfo

    Took charge on the first morning of the match after Hutton and Edrich had been dismissed for not much by McCormick. A commanding innings with a Strike Rate of 60.91 despite the fact that O’Reilly bowled 37 overs.


    No.5 Dudley Nourse

    230 V Australia, Old Wanderers 1935
    2nd Test: South Africa v Australia at Johannesburg, Dec 24-28, 1935 | Cricket Scorecard | ESPN Cricinfo

    Made a duck in the first innings but more than made up for it as South Africa amassed 491 in their second innings to achieve a rare draw against the bowling of McCormick, O’Reilly, and Grimmett.


    No.6 VVS Laxman

    167 V Australia, Sydney 2000
    3rd Test: Australia v India at Sydney, Jan 2-4, 2000 | Cricket Scorecard | ESPN Cricinfo

    A fighting innings in a lost cause. Almost carried his bat during India’s second innings total of 261 as the rest of the Indian batsman were over-whelmed by the bowling of McGrath, Lee, Fleming, and Warne.


    No.7 John Waite

    113 V England, Old Trafford 1955
    3rd Test: England v South Africa at Manchester, Jul 7-12, 1955 | Cricket Scorecard | ESPN Cricinfo

    Helped South Africa to a first innings total of 521 against the pace and spin of Tyson, Bedser, Bailey, Lock, and Titmus. In the end the South Africans won by 3 wickets in a hard fought Test match.
    Still holds the South African record with Mark Boucher for the most dismissals in a five-Test series - 26.


    No.8 Andy Roberts

    7/54 (9/119) V Australia, Perth 1975
    2nd Test: Australia v West Indies at Perth, Dec 12-16, 1975 | Cricket Scorecard | ESPN Cricinfo

    A rare success for the West Indies against the might of Greg Chappell’s batting and Lillee n’ Thomson’s bowling during the 1975/76 series. Roy Fredericks set up the West Indian victory by smashing 169 off only 145 balls during their only innings, and then Andy Roberts steam-rolled the Australian batsman in their second innings, all-out for 169.


    No.9 Dennis Lillee

    7/83 (10/127) V West Indies, Melbourne 1981
    1st Test: Australia v West Indies at Melbourne, Dec 26-30, 1981 | Cricket Scorecard | ESPN Cricinfo

    This Test match really belonged to Kim Hughes for his 100 Not Out in the first innings as Australia collapsed to 5/59 on the first morning. However, Lillee captured the wicket of Viv Richards on the last ball of the day to swing the momentum back to Australia who eventually won by 58 runs.


    No.10 Erapalli Prassana

    5/70 (9/111) V West Indies 1975
    4th Test: India v West Indies at Chennai, Jan 11-15, 1975 | Cricket Scorecard | ESPN Cricinfo

    At his very best during the 1967/68 tour of Australia but in this match Prasanna outshone both Bedi and Chandra to dismiss Viv Richards and Clive Lloyd in both innings as India claimed an excellent victory by 100 runs in a low scoring match. Viswanath starred with the bat.


    No.11 Courtney Walsh

    6/54 (9/146) V Australia, Antigua1995
    2nd Test: West Indies v Australia at St John's, Apr 8-13, 1995 | Cricket Scorecard | ESPN Cricinfo

    The West Indies finally lost a series at home in 1995, 3-1. But in the second Test match the Australian batsman were still locked in an arm wrestle with the West Indian bowlers as each team fought for domination. Walsh kept his team alive yet again with excellent figures against a strong and determined batting line-up.


    12th Claire Taylor

    116 V Australia, Taunton 2005
    4th ODI: England Women v Australia Women at Taunton, Aug 30, 2005 | Cricket Scorecard | ESPN Cricinfo

    A classically cool knock of 116 runs off 133 balls as she guides England to a 4 wicket win with 9 balls remaining.

    I am often asked who was the best, fastest or toughest bowler I ever faced and I quite enjoy giving different answers every time. Well, it keeps me amused anyway –but the underlying point is that one could revise this whole list on a daily basis and never really be right and never really be wrong - DAVID GOWER

    Yeah why write Herbert Sutcliffe as Bert when there is a famous Bert Sutcliffe... I thought it was Bert as well.
    anyway - didn't vote for Blakus because of the issue. Strangely I am the only one to vote for Cev.
    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.
