    The biggest spinner of the cricket ball?

    MacGill ripped the **** out of it consistently. I don’t think I’ve seen anyone spin it more

    AB de Villers vs Michael Bevan vs Sachin Tendulkar

    Possibly. But Hussey was always such a clean striker of the ball, while Bevan was more of a nurdler and accumulator. Bevan was very good at picking gaps and pushing twos similarly to Deano. Hussey was just a clean striker and far more technically correct. I’d back Hussey to perform more often...

    Players who retired too early.

    Kim Hughes retired at 30 in 1984 after pretty relentless and tasteless bullying by teammates. Was put into difficult situations by GChappell's choosing of when he'd tour or not, and then losing and regaining the captaincy based on Chappell's whims. Should never had been put into the situations...

    AB de Villers vs Michael Bevan vs Sachin Tendulkar

    Post might have been made in jest, not sure, but you're actually spot on. Ponting, Waugh, Symonds and Hussey in the inner ring, with Starc, Lee, McGrath and Deano on the boundary is a hell of a fielding combo.

    AB de Villers vs Michael Bevan vs Sachin Tendulkar

    I think Hussey brings everything to a team that Bevan would batting somewhere between 5-7, but that he'd do it a bit better. Better hitter than Bevan. Also a significatly better fieldsman.

    AB de Villers vs Michael Bevan vs Sachin Tendulkar

    I don't hate Bevan. He was pretty good. I just think there's a big myth surrounding him. And I'd definitely prefer MWaugh over him in a team. I think Watson is better as an opener rather than Waugh, who was more adaptable in the middle order, so I am happy to slide Waugh down the order. But if...

    AB de Villers vs Michael Bevan vs Sachin Tendulkar

    Gilchrist Watson Ponting Jones Symonds M.Waugh Hussey Starc Warne Lee McGrath Is how I like it. Waugh is out of position and could change with Watto but I want him for his fielding as well as his batting, and also potentially for a few things overs. Watto would be better opening most of the...

    Tim Paine

    Australia as in the continent itself? It’s insentient. Or Australians as a people? Not sure how you’d decide that. Are you including people not into cricket? And should we poll everyone to get an accurate reflection of the how everyone feels cos someone sent a dick pic ages ago?

    Not completely biased, but Green could be anything given a fair run with injury.

    Don Bradman

    Bradman was obviously a pretty good batter but his mere 2 test wickets doesn’t put him in the same category as an Andrew Symonds as a genuine fifth bowling option

    The "Also-Rans" Test Draft

    I’ll likely not be online for about 24 hours and everyone ahead of me already has a keeper so I’ll take Wally Grout. If AndrewB can isn’t using Walcott to keep and wants Grout, I’ll take Syed Kirmani instead. If I’ve misread and any of these guys are taken already, just give me Bob Taylor...
