Pretty happy with that team actually, especially considering my first pick. These blokes would go good in the subcontinent.
That's a real decent team BFP.

Barry Richards (test batting average 72)
Wilfred Rhodes (He was a great player, one of the greatest of cricket's history- cricinfo)
Victor Trumper (dove like)
Faf Du Plessis (test batting average 70)
Jack Robertson (Polished and stylish, wristy and effortless: these were the words used time and again to describe innings played by Jack Robertson- cricinfo)
Mike Brearley (Brearley was without doubt the best captain I ever played under, a man with a billion dollar cricketing brain- Beefy)
MJK Smith (His leadership qualities, which included fielding at forward short leg before helmets and shin-guards were in vogue, were possibly the biggest factor in his captaining England in half his 50 Tests- cricinfo)
Dinesh Kathik (but his wicketkeeping wasn't up to scratch- cricinfo)
George Giffen (used to be referred to as the W. G. Grace of Australia- cricinfo)
Roy Tattersall- (A tall man- cricinfo)
Devon Malcolm (Devon Malcolm was all about raw pace -cricinfo)
- Great openers
- Vic at #3
- Decent all rounders in Giffen and Rhodes. Good spinners in Rhodes and Tattershall
- Young gun Faf
- Excellent captain with Brearley
- Pretty **** middle order
- Devon Malcolm at least LOOKS intimidating

- no **** players
- a lotta good players but maybe no superstars (lloyd, lohmann closest)
- big fat tail
- lot of my players were picked in the same draft position as their batting spot

Indians can't bowl - Where has the rumour come from as I myself and many indian friends arwe competent fast bowlers ?
With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left
Govinda Isn't Mad Hatter XI
I love my top four
Hayward and Fraser is a seam pairing I'm happy with, just a shame that I either have to have Hinds bowl first change or play ****ing Kulasakera, which realistically I should instead of Tuffers except on sharp turning decks, but whatever...
Holy tail. Keeper can't bat but still winds up at 8

Monk, I wouldnt make Brett Schultz my 12th man. He was way better than some of your fast bowling options.
twelfthers Jack Mason
A tad underwhelming I have to accept - was hoping to get Dion Nash, George Hirst and Mushtaq Mohammad rather than Harris, Mason and Inti, but my pace attack of Jones, Garner and Foster is going to trouble all-comers
BFP has Cullinan too, Fred!
You don't allow Bradman to average 100. He averages 100 because nobody can control his scoring - Coronis at his eloquent best
Draft Side: Hobbs | Hutton | Don | Pollock | Ponting |ABDV | Miller | Davidson | Warne | Garner | Waqar
