ATVG Draft

Fuller Pilch

International Captain
My final selection is Mudassar Nazar. Not only was he one of the best openers in the world during an era full of elite fast bowlers, he was also a very useful seamer.
 

Fuller Pilch

International Captain
Victor Trumper 39.04
Mudassar Nazar 38.09; 38.36
Che Pujara 48.66
Inzaman Ul-Haq 49.60
Douglas Jardine 48.00 (c)
Colin Bland 49.08
Mushfiqur Rahim 36.77 (wkt)
Graeme Swann 22.09; 29.96
Stuart Broad 19.08; 27.79
Sylvester Clarke 15.63; 27.85
Neil Wagner 12.50; 26.60

Pretty good side that. Mudassar balances it beautifully. It has an ATG Aussie opener, superbly balanced attack, gun middle order with the only keeper with 3 test doubles (averaging well over 40 in the last 10 years), a strong tail, probably the greatest fielder of all time, and a crafty and relentless captain.

A team that meets the ATVG brief superbly. An excellent top 7, all stars, and bowling led by Andy Roberts and Chandra.

In the interest of introducing modernity to my side, I'll take Herschelle Gibbs and let Cowdrey go back to #5.

Gibbs
Slater
Harvey
Hill*
Cowdrey
Matthews 5
Watling
Hall
Richardson
Akhtar
Gupte

Fits the bill perfectly. Harvey, Hill and Cowdrey sneakily raise the batting bar towards the higher end of VG. Balanced pace trio and excellent spinner too. Gibbs and Slater 2 textbook ATVGs also.

International Debutant
Hasn't there been enough time for a certain team to be completed? If we leave it too long, interest dies and the voting stage becomes almost irrelevant.
