    Not sure how that's typical. Renshaw single-handedly won Queensland the Shield last year and hit hundreds in several clutch games.

    The 90s was a period of a lot of excellent batsmen who did not play as much test cricket as perhaps they could have and would do if they were around today. Hayden was one examples, other include, Law, Lehmann, Siddons and Bevan.
    I seem to remember Hayden was dropped so quickly because it was believed he had a huge technical flaw in his game and he did not have the game to succeed at test level.

    I definitely think Taylor was undeserving of his spot after like 94. Hayden-Elliott-Slater all probably better bats than him. Taylor averaged barely 20 over like 30 tests around 96-97. And his famous career saving century at the start of the 97 ashes was followed by pure crap the rest of the 6 test series.


    But he was leading a side that was doing amazing things and beating everybody so I guess that saved his tubby bacon

    True for Blewett but harsh on Elliott. Averaged about 43 after 15 of his 21 overall tests. An isolated poor series in the Caribbean in 99 was a hiccup(hadn't played a test in over 12 months) then failed in a brief recall in 2004 and ended up with a mediocre average of 33

    Blewett got a massive run from 99-00 of around 15 tests with Slater and continuously failed

    Yeah with Elliott it was more 2 bad series against some really good bowling and not really getting a chance after that that killed his average. Bit different to Blewett I think.

    Elliot was a better player than Blewett. In an era when lots of batsmen were putting up strong FC performances and did not get opportunities Blewett is probably a player who played too many tests.

    Honestly with less pressure on their test spot I think a number of those 45+ averaging shield batsmen would have done a lot better in tests. The problem was if they didn't immediately click in the mid 90s when they got picked, there were 5 batsmen who were waiting in line behind them.

    Many of them would have been cursing their luck - born 5 years earlier they'd have got a long run like S Waugh and probably be considered an ATG.

    As it is, Hayden basically didn't get a decent run until he was 30, nor did M Hussey. Love and Law didn't even get one.

    Pretty much what I'd pick. Larkin wasn't very good outside his tiny purple patch.

    Pretty solid team all in all, personally I would have Patto ahead of either Boland or Bird. Probably a touch biased but I think would make the attack a little less samey imo

    Pattinson played 6 matches, only the last two were very good. I don't think being very good in two matches is enough for the team of the season. They have chosen the top 3 wicket takers and the 7th best wicket taker because he also had an excellent season with the bat. Jhye Richardson did not make the side despite his performances getting him into the test team and I think he should be there ahead of Pattinson. You could also argue Tremain and Steketee had better seasons than Pattinson.

    Definitely did consider Jhye Richardson, that 8 for at the new Perth Stadium was some seriously impressive bowling.

    Watched all of the first innings at Karen Rolton Oval, Patto was absolutely sensational, Tremain started off fairly indifferently, it took him taking a sharp catch at point to spark him into action.

    It is not so much about who is the better bowler but who had the better season. Pattinson at his best, which he seems to be close to in his last performances, is definitely the best bowler. However because he is coming back from serious injury his season overall is not as good as other bowlers.

    Ponting talks about it a lot in his book. Just immense pressure all the time to keep your place
