    Choose Hayden over Mitchell and Simpson, because he gives a R/L H combination and his style is the exact opposite to Sutcliffe's and would complement each other. Also this would be an amazing fielding team. Bobby Simpson or Bruce Mitchell would give the team a leg spinner which would be handy.
    Lindwall, Davidson and Hayden all handy slippers as well.

    Reckon my Rejects XI would look something like:

    Grace
    Sutcliffe
    Ponting
    Weekes
    Worrell
    S Waugh
    S Pollock
    Davidson
    Lindwall
    Blackham
    Grimmett

    Though the team could change if I chose it tomorrow. Looking at it, it's very Australia-biased but at the same time I don't see an obvious example of one of my Australian selections being clearly inferior to an alternative. Blackham is probably the most contentious to many, but I'm happy with him in my team. A fair case could be made as well for Lohmann over one of my bowlers.

    As an aside, should all this be moved to the general ATG discussion thread?

    Didn't know Lindwall and Davidson fielded in the slips, Haydos was very good in the slips, but was better in the gully and Ponting, Weekes and Harvey were all superb in the slips. Would place Haydos at first slip for the spinner though. Ponting, Weekes and Harvey were also brilliant outfielders conincidentally.

    Yeah, Davo was by all accounts ridiculously good pretty much anywhere - he could field at slip but it would seem something of a waste given his all round quality and the fact that there are other outstanding slippers available.

    Anyone mind if we make Rahul Dravid the captain of the ATG Indian XI as a W/L of 1.33 doesn't appear to be too bad?

    Ha ha, so you'd both drop one of Grace or Sutcliffe to get Mitchell into the side?

    I may not have picked him but I had not even noticed and, therefore, considered him.

    Grace makes my All Time World XI if we're talking all cricket but Mitchell was definitely a better Test player than him IMO, and even if we're talking all cricket I'd have certainly included him somewhere. I rate him about Sutcliffe's equal and if I had to bat him at 3 (where he batted quite a bit for SA, actually) to get him in the side then I'd do so.
