    Having read a bit about him, will also change my vote from Goodwin to Bland.

    Bland played all his cricket for SA whereas Davison never represented at test level so should be available for selection for this thread.

    Therefore consider this post a minus 1 for Bland.

    I think it highly likely that Bland would have played for Zimbabwe if it were an option back then, but yes, it is peculiar. But then, John Traicos played for both.

    I'm happy to accept Traicos bcos he atleast qualifies. Whereas Bland by circumstance is a Saffer imo. Bit like Prince Ranji or Duleep I guess. No India at the time meant they played their cricket for England. Although the latter was prevented by poor health from playing for India in which case, like Traicos, I'd qualify him for his nation of birth if he played for 2 countries.

    Edit: Just read that Traicos was born in Egypt!

    Don't think Traicos belongs there, and Price is bit unlucky to miss.

    Goodwin, Houghton and Flower comfortably got home on the middle order batting vote.

    Paul Strang won the spinner vote over Price 11-8.

    That gives us:

    1. Grant Flower
    2.
    3. Murray Goodwin
    4. Dave Houghton
    5. Andy Flower
    6.
    7.
    8. Paul Strang
    9. Heath Streak
    10.
    11. Kyle Jarvis

    I'll just ask you now to select a wicket keeper.

    You may select Houghton or Flower for team balance reasons if you wish; if one of those two wins the poll then we'll have another vote for the position opened up by it at the end.

    I'll vote for Taibu.

    Flower kept for team balance reasons rather than because he was a natural gloveman and he wasn't particularly tidy. He got the job done but I think if there are other options they should be explored. Taibu isn't far off the other middle order batting options and frees up Flower to just bat; he was also an absolutely fantastic gloveman. I don't really know a lot about Houghton's wicket keeping in general but I do want him to bat four and I shy away from having my keeper bat top four.
