    I had in mind that everyone would pick the best bat and then we'd go onto the third best bat tomorrow and then the next day the fourth best bat.

    Was looking forward to people's reasoning why they picked who they picked too.

    I am often asked who was the best, fastest or toughest bowler I ever faced and I quite enjoy giving different answers every time. Well, it keeps me amused anyway –but the underlying point is that one could revise this whole list on a daily basis and never really be right and never really be wrong - DAVID GOWER

    Oh alright. Weldone's post threw me off. I think number 1 will be pretty unanimous. Pete has it pretty much wrapped up

    Kind of fitting that the quality of posts so far in this thread is similar to the quality of Australia's current top order.

    Maybe better to nominate 6 bats and order 1-6 on who gets the most votes?

    Mine would be:
    Clarke (no one is going to argue this surely?)
    Rogers (of the available guys is so far and away the most consistent fc run scorer)
    Warner (can destroy an opposition, but needs to learn to make more ugly runs when conditions don't suit)
    Hughes (the fact that he dominated the Shield when he went back shows both that he should be perservered with and that no one else in the Shield is challenging for his spot)

    Cowan (which says much more about what we have to choose from than his ability, solid but extremely limited)

    take your pick for 6 from a big bag of ordinary. At a pinch I'd go Cosgrove but wouldn't fight anyone over it.

    Nah your fault for trying to hog the glory and make this thread stretch out for days and days by nominating 2 and then 3 and then 4 etc.

    Ask everyone who their best 6 bats is straight up, people name 6, life goes on.

    Hog the glory lol.

    But yeah the views of adub and Jono has made me change my mind.

    So everyone, your best 6 bats? List in best order not batting order - adub is the only vote I've counted so far.
