    Adam Maher obviously.
    Rejecting 'analysis by checklist' and 'skill absolutism' since Dec '09
    Rejecting 'selection deontology' since Mar '15
    'Stats' is not a synonym for 'Career Test Averages'

    Wayne Phillips is one of my favourite batsman of the 80s, and was huge talent as this innings suggests - 120 off 197 balls at Bridgetown, 1984.

    3rd Test: West Indies v Australia at Bridgetown, Mar 30-Apr 4, 1984 | Cricket Scorecard | ESPN Cricinfo

    But for some stupid reason he was turned from an opening batsman into a wicket-keeper by the selectors/Kim Hughes, and consequently lost form. He was dumped after 27 Tests.

    Martin Love is up there. I thought Lehmann could've played more tests.... he would be a handy all-rounder right now....

    Wasn't he the same as Bruce Reid, injured too often but bloody good when fit?
