    With Sobers out of the picture, and what a shame that is, let's go for the second greatest left hander to play the game, according to The Don himself!

    Graeme Pollock

    Damn it, I really wanted Miller or Pollock.

    I'm so split over the next two in mind, but decided to go for Wally Hammond.






    Not only could he be an outrageously attacking batsman - he held the test record of most sixes in an innings -10 for over 60 years until Akram went past him -, but he was a more than useful & accurate bowler who took over 80 test wickets and fine fielder to boot, even if he did hide at slip later in his career when he had a few extra pounds on him IIRC Pretty sure he was the first to take 100 test catches.

    Round 1

    J_C - Barry Richards
    watson - Keith Miller
    kingkallis - Mike Procter
    AldoRaine18 - Graeme Pollock
    Zinzan - Wally Hammond

    Bill was super economic. Good choice.

    I'll go Stan McCabe. Fast scoring rate and some rated him second best after only Bradman during the 30s. The 232 must have came at better than a run a ball, but I don' think records were kept then like that. His 187 during Bodyline also came in only 4 hours, 240 minutes probably means around 200 balls right? I'm sure he farmed the strike both times though. He could also bowl a bit.

    Brutal. Basically all the guys I'd targeted as first pick are gone

    There's still one or two players I thought would have been great at ODIs floating around. I'm sure one will go very soon

    I wonder if any modern successful or even semi-successful test players never played a single ODI. Surely not. I thought maybe Brendan Nash but even he played 9.
