    Yeah, I've done it on a couple of occasions, and IIRC Spark has as well.

Still always a very boundary-reliant player but he expanded his stroke range and really took advantage of the field restrictions, hence his success in T20. There was never a need for Australia to call him up because of the other riches they had but he really turned his limited overs game around in general.
    Exactly my sentiments, PEWS. It's the pigeonhole effect all over again. As cricinfo put it, "With Langer, perception was everything." This pick was my way of giving him some tribute
    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.

    Athlai doesn't lie. And he doesn't do sarcasm either, so you know it's true!

    I mean, we'll need you to pee into a cup, harsh, to check for the possibility that you were under the influence when making the pick.

    Nah, T20 strike rate of 136 doesn't lie, nor does a stellar List A record. Plus at least he has good T20 and One-Day experience, as opposed to the other fantasy picks I had in mind.

    He actually turned around his OD game in time to be awesome at T20 pretty much from the outset. Makes hundreds no one else can.
