    As for players who dominate domestically but don't live up to the potential on the big stage, Greg Matthews is a stand out imo. Bloke was consistently there or thereabouts with leading Shield wicket takers for over a decade, but wasn't up to it as test bowler. Very good batsman at test level though.

    Interesting sidelight - iirc every player who served as VC under TOTAB was dropped from the side at one point while in that position.

    What an insecure old bugger. The real AB will never do that.

    Ramps ashes record was very solid. Found McGrath and Warne(though he was missing from the 98 series, where Ramps was Mr consistent) easy enough to play

    Greg Blewett and Matthew Elliot have to get a mention as well.
