    It's ironic that Lock replaced Wardle and then kept him out of the England team, but here they are paired in the same hypothetical side.

    Dexter, Compton, May and Rowe is a very strong middle order, but bagapath does have a point that the side maybe a quality pacer short. However, this is offset somewhat by the fact that both Lock and Wardle are attacking left-armers, rather than the containment type. Hence the attack is more likely to pick-up the 20 wickets necessary.

    Graham Yallop. Solid fielder, and a great batsman to boot. May have been better to have him in the XI...

    Yeah it's very ironic and it isn't a coincidence that they're both on my team. I picked Wardle first and then realized he didn't play more games as Lock kept him out of the team. Thought it subsequently made sense to pick him ahead of Gupte as a result,

    Yeah, one of the purposes of having twelve rounds is that it gives people the chance to correct any mistakes or fine-tune their team.

    Guess I'll go with the brave Nawab of Pataudi, one of the most important figures in Indian Cricket History

    MAK Pataudi's 75 in Melbourne in 1967
    'An innings played with one leg and one eye'

    Pataudi's 75 was, as one observer termed it, "an innings played with one leg and one eye" in a thin drizzle on a dark day. To add to the handicap of his vision, he had also suffered a pulled hamstring, but he played stirringly despite these problems, in difficult batting conditions. One school of thought has it that Pataudi's and his team's struggles were partly of his own making, for he himself chose to bat on a pitch that was so green that I could only distinguish it from the rest of the ground because the grass had been rolled. But he did not have much by way of pace bowling, and he must have been hoping that his spinners would come into their own in the fourth innings. As it happened, his batting line-up fell around him on the first day, but he found some support from Rusi Surti, and as the day went on he proceeded to play some thrilling leg-side strokes, including several hooks. I remember Lindsay Hassett coming up to me during the game and saying, "That's the way Bradman used to attack the bowling."

    Bevan Congdon: The first NZ captain to record a victory over Australia in a Test match, as well as having a name that sounds like a rubber johnny;

    2nd Test: New Zealand v Australia at Christchurch, Mar 8-13, 1974 | Cricket Scorecard | ESPN Cricinfo

    Still can't make mind my between Asif Iqbal and Bevan Congdon as both have similar stat's whether batting or bowling. Asif was the more talented batsman, but pretty much stopped bowling after he settled into the top-order. Congdon was very consistent throughout his career with both bat and ball.

    01. Desmond Haynes
    02. Roy Fredericks
    03. Rohan Kanhai
    04. Neil Harvey
    05. Clive Lloyd
    06. Bevan Congdon / Asif Iqbal
    07. John Waite
    08. Ray Lindwall
    09. Garth McKenzie
    10. John Snow

    Can't help but feel that you might have the best team of all Watto, except for maybe Fred's.
