Here is my Alltime AUS XI:
Davidson to lend variety to the attack. His 186 test wickets came at just over 20 runs each. Plus he could bat and was a superb fielder.
Unfortunately, all the great spinners were leg spinners. Leaving out Warne, Grimmett is no joke but someone has to be left out. I was tempted to include two legspinners but opted for variety.
Monty Noble was a possibility with his off spin and competent batting. But...
Its never a perfect jb. Next time I make one, I will probably chose a couple of different players, a McCabe for example and the one and only Trumper. But then thats what chosing an all time side is all about. Who are we to tell who was better over a hundred years. Its just a relaxing pastime and a charming way to express your love for the game.
