Reckon my Rejects XI would look something like:
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?
Simpson^ | Hayden | Bradman | Chappell^ | Ponting | Border* | Gilchrist+ | Davidson3 | Warne4^ | Lillee1 | McGrath2
Greenidge | Hunte | Richards^ | Headley* | Lara^ | Sobers5^ | Walcott+ | Marshall1 | Ambrose2 | Holding3 | Garner4
Richards^ | Smith*^ | Amla | Pollock | Kallis5^ | Nourse | Cameron+ | Procter3 | Steyn1 | Tayfield4 | Donald2
Hobbs | Hutton*^ | Hammond^ | Compton | Barrington | Botham5^ | Knott | Trueman1 | Laker4 | Larwood2 | Barnes3
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?
