    Intersting choice first-up LongHop. I don't think we've picked Gavaskar in R1 before (?)

    KK > Blakus > Andy > Watson

    Sorry for the delay folks.

    Imran Khan has surprisingly not been picked yet.

    Yeah was under the impression we were judging more on what they did during the era we are selecting from when I made my pick

    Yeah I wasn't keen on 1980s cricketers.
    Every 5 years we have an election and have to decide who are the least obnoxious out of all the men. Then one gets in and they age really quickly. Which is always fun to watch.

    Interesting. I assumed they simply had to have played in the era to qualify.

    Yeah they do, nothing wrong with your pick at all and I picked Lillee who of course played lots of cricket after 77. I just thought that as it was a 45-77 draft I would pick players that had a real impact in that era.

    Just as an aside - I was surprised to find out that Malcolm Marshall played only a solitary First Class game in 1978 before being sent off on a tour of India. Probably a good decision by the West Indian selectors to take a risk and give the young bloke a go.
