Get rid of the gully, and put him in the fifth slip position!
If you were that old, and that kind, and the very last of your kind, you couldn't just stand back and watch children cry.
one of the few things with AB as the skipper is to underattack

I would have a crack at this but I honestly have nothing to compare to the cow anecdote. Absolute gold.

Since this looks practical I don't think I will ever resort to using a fifth bowler.
Now that I have shared this with you, I don't know what I will think of in the shower.
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.
Fair enough. I get your point. Border and Richards and Tendulkar can certainly manage 15 harmless overs between them even if one of the main bowlers breaks down. Honestly, since these are players I want to watch I can't bring in Kallis though he can replace any of the middle order bats in terms of effectiveness.

I think the biggest issue would be you probably wouldn't want Warne bowling ~30 on a day 1 or non really spinning track, might need 5-10 overs help from someone somewhere.
The sort of general malaise that only the genius possess and the insane lament.
Garner was always good at bowling long economic spells.
Great team and write up Bagapath. Really enjoyed it.
marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!
Anyone want to join the Society?
Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.
My dad always said about being captain that if you bowl half the overs, you'll take half the wickets.
