    Thanks Michael. That must have been a lot of tedious work to keep track of all those bids.

    Billy Murdoch scored Test cricket's first ever double century while batting at No.3, and seemed to bat at first drop the most often. So first drop for Billy.

    Larwood averaged 4 runs more than Bari and was a pretty handy attacking batsman from what I can make out. So Larwood at No.8 and Bari at No.9.

    Trevor Bailey opened the batting with Peter Richardson against Neil Adcock and Peter Heine during the 1956/57 tour of South Africa (result: 2-2) . He averaged a creditable 26 with some consistent scores. So, I think I'll leave him at No.2 to partner the good Reverend.

    Razzaq to destroy all with bat and ball.

    Got to be happy with that batting though, clearly a top bowler short, needed to bid that extra bit for Miller.

    - Sanath Jayasuriya

    12th- Phil Home


    Thanks Michael!

    - I consider the players in red to be players who would contend for their national ATG XI
    - Players in blue were very good players for their countries
    - Players in purple (Lillee) are undisputed ATGs
    - The other two (Lever and Subba Row) were handy cricketers for their countries.

    I don't even know who the **** Phil Home is!

    Razzaq has only opened once and normally bats at 6 or 7. While Sachin normally bats at 4 during Test mathces, he has been a regular opener in one day internationals. Since his technique is near perfect I think that Sachin would go OK against any of the bowling attacks on display in this draft. Hence;

    01. Herschelle Gibbs
    02. Sachin Tendulkar
    03. Hashim Amla
    04. Shivnarine Chanderpaul
    05. Doug Walters
    06. Tony Greig (*)
    07. Abdul Razzaq
    08. Kiran More (+)
    09. Simon Jones
    10. Erapali Prasanna
    11. Courtney Walsh

    Now the team has a world class top 6 batting line-up and feels good.

    I am sure he would but he is one of the greatest number 4s of all-time and is the best player in my side so don't want to take that strength away.

    Thought about putting Chanderpaul there but decided to just make the strongest middle order possible. Razzaq can go out there and have a slog, Amla more than capable of dealing with the new ball if he has to.

    That's an interesting exercise Monk.

    01. Rev. David Sheppard
    02. Trevor Bailey
    03. Billy Murdoch
    04. Lindsay Hassett
    05. Clive Lloyd (*)
    06. Colin Bland
    07. Gary Gilmour
    08. Harold Larwood
    09. Wasim Bari (+)
    10. Charlie Griffith
    11. Ashley Mallet

    I'm tempted to make Mallet Blue because of his 8 for 59 against Pakistan in 1972 (best ever innings figures for an Aussie spinner) and overall SR of 76. Likewise for Gilmour due to his outstanding 1976/76 series against the West Indies where he took 20 wickets at 20.3, SR of 39.

    However, that's probably wishful thinking on my part. So with that exercise done it looks as though your team would beat my team Monk!

    On the other hand I believe that my team deserves Red for overall balance, and possibly Red for its combined bowling strength. As usual it's another Watson team where the sum of the parts is greater than the whole. In other words, during the heat of a 'real' battle it has all the necessary ingredients to put up one hell of a fight.

    Amla has opens with aplomb in ODIs and has opened in Tests a few times, whereas Tendulkar is married to the no.4 spot. I'd go with him.
    And we still haven't walked in the glow of each other's majestic presence.

    Opening with Amla creates a problem at No.3. I think that Pothas' solution is probably better.

    My side feels so imbalanced. lol.

    My openers are potentially good youngsters.
    My wicket-keeper is an ATG and is the best cricketer by a mile from his country.
    Number 4 is one of his country's best bats.
    Number 5 was an undisputed ATG.
    Number 6 was one of the great all-rounders
    Number 7 is the greatest underachiever of all-time.
    Number 8 was a very useful all-rounder.
    My main bowler is a decent quick bowler.
    My spinner is good, played an important role in his side.
    My other bowler is a semi-useful quick.

    Not too bad given the comparisons.

    Bishen Bedi should be Red Morgieb.

    The combined effect of Miller, McKenzie, Bedi and Faulkner should be good enough to get 20 wickets against the other sides listed. And Warner, Flower, Inzamam, Miller, and Faulkner should score enough runs between them to make competetive totals.
