    Bit surprised at the lack of Spikey love; pretty awesome looking bowling line up.

    8ankitj's my personal fav tho.

    In hindsight, I shot myself in the foot picking Miller first. I should have taken McGrath instead and picked Kallis with my next pick (which was the plan, until Miller was actually there for the taking...)
    Indians can't bowl - Where has the rumour come from as I myself and many indian friends arwe competent fast bowlers ?

    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left

    hahaha didn't know he was voteless. a pretty gun batting line-up and Akram and Tyson to open the attack. Perhaps Andy Roberts over Anderson but idk, no votes is a little surprising. we don't hate Kumble that much do we!?

    Akram at 7 makes him a bit easy to dismiss, I think

    A Post Mortem

    At the time of the draft I suspected that Ian Botham and Matthew Hayden would be vote losers for my team. However, I selected Ian Botham because I had to shoe-horn a Pakistani player into the team and figured that Wasim Bari was the best player still available (Javed Miandad and all the top-notch quicks were gone).

    My suspicions have been proven correct I think. Ian Botham is not rated as a first change bowler relative to other ATG bowlers. In fact he is so under-rated that his apparent lack of skill was not able to be masked by Marshall and Garner as the opening bowlers, and the class of Verity as the spinner.

    It would have been nice to have better 5th bowler options in the team, but I still think that it's the lack of confidence in Ian Botham and Matthew Hayden that cost the team about 5-6 votes.

    Interesting.
    Len Hutton - Jack Hobbs - Ted Dexter - Peter May - Walter Hammond - Frank Woolley - Ian Botham - Alan Knott - Hedley Verity - John Snow - Fred Trueman

    Victor Trumper - Bill Lawry - Don Bradman - Greg Chappell - Allan Border - Keith Miller - Adam Gilchrist - Alan Davidson - Shane Warne - Dennis Lillee - Glenn McGrath

    I would say Botham more than Hayden. Botham was the reason I almost dinn't vote for the team, but as you said, it's hard to over look Marshall, Garner (best ever opening combination) and Verity (top 5 spinner ever). Plus the middle order was the best on show.
    Of the percieved modern FTBs, I still rank Hayden far ahead of the MoYo's, Mahela's and Sehwags of the world, so not a problem for me. Botham though was a big drop off for a first change. Half of Viv's highlights were againts him.

    Simpson^ | Hayden | Bradman | Chappell^ | Ponting | Border* | Gilchrist+ | Davidson3 | Warne4^ | Lillee1 | McGrath2

    Spikey - a decent side overall, but a lot of the players seem to be merely good rather than great, which is a fatal flaw at this level.
    AndyZaltzHair - Bradman makes this side awesome, but it's still very good without him.
    Cabinet96 - outstanding, only slight concern is the lack of aggressive bats.
    Coronis - arguably the best batting of the lot, but the bowling isn't really good at this level.
    8ankitj - very good, but its main strength is with its stars rather than.
    Watson - great batting and opening bowling, but the bowling lacks a little depth.
    Johnners - batting doesn't look so good at this level, but I like the bowling.
    MightyMariner - probably the weakest of the bunch, making Compton open and batting Wasim at 7 are mistakes and the rest of his bowling is pretty average at this level.
    Monk - batting is pretty meh at this level, but his bowling is stellar.
    5-0

    RIP Craig Walsh (Craig) 1985-2012
    RIP Hughesy

    Proudly supporting the #2 cricketer of all time.
