    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta

    He was as you said though, very stylish bat and good fielder. Well done.

    Proudly against the bring back Bennett movement since he is injury prone and won't last 5 days.

    Thinking about it, I did used to like watching Waugh and Haydos walk out for the Aussies in the ODI's. Waugh was still stylish hitting huge sixes in some of those games

    You being a Pakistani I expected you to pick Saeed Anwar as an opener, just as graceful as Waugh and overall a better batsman, definitely a more proven opener. And seeing as your first two picks are two of the most elegant and graceful to ever play the game, it wouldn't surprise me if you picked Anwar next.

    I love Holding and Mark Waugh too. But since you are getting a middle order bat to open - exactly like Furball, I detest your team already.

    wtf. NUFAN and I seem to like the same players. ME Waugh would certainly be one of my favourite batsmen of all time.

    I'm with everyone else - ATG teams must have specialists for each role, and Waugh wasn't a specialist Test opener.
    Len Hutton - Jack Hobbs - Ted Dexter - Peter May - Walter Hammond - Frank Woolley - Ian Botham - Alan Knott - Hedley Verity - John Snow - Fred Trueman

    Victor Trumper - Bill Lawry - Don Bradman - Greg Chappell - Allan Border - Keith Miller - Adam Gilchrist - Alan Davidson - Shane Warne - Dennis Lillee - Glenn McGrath

    listen smali****, everyone loves mark waugh. languid strokemaker with all the time in the world. just one of those guys who has it all and everyone likes. would never make a test opener though, he loved to play at everything - which got him in trouble at times even at 4. Also had a problem with scoring big hundreds, which is what you love your openers to do, either as a partnership go big, or at least for one to bat a majority of the innings. i also highly doubt whether he would ever want to be a test opener. surely the kind of cool cat who wants to (and with his talent you let him) bat in the easier periods and cash in on the nuggets getting you off to a solid start.

    dravid you can get away with as an opener, junior you cant.

    This isn't an ATG side though.

    Only it's not an ATG side, it's Smali's favourite XI. Jeez. Imagine the kittens you'll have with my line up when I open the batting with Iain O'Brien and his mighty defensive crotch to see the shine off the new ball.
