    Yeah that's really the only one of the Windies line ups from the 80s which stands out to me as flat out brilliant when you assess the players individually, though I don't think Rowe probably ended up being as great as he ought to have.

    Once you started getting the Hoopers and Logies in the team the line up wasn't as all-round good as the one you posted imo. Still some utter guns but the lesser players in the line ups weren't as good imo. Mind you, Dujon came in and was good enough to bat at six so that was a bonus to them.

    McMillan
    Oram
    McCullum
    Cairns
    Plus Vettori was at 9.

    Those tests were interesting as we weren't horrible, we just couldn't seal the deal.

    I quite liked the Australian line-up in the 1993 Ashes:

    1. Taylor
    2. Slater
    3. Boon
    4. M. Waugh
    5. Border
    6. S. Waugh
    7. Healy

    Rock solid, albeit against Deadly Dev and friends.

    - Marsh
    - Boon
    - Border
    - Jones
    - S. Waugh
    - Healy


    Funny how certain eras stick in your memory. I was 12 at the time!
