Gun bowling. Went with Hussey as he opened for WA usually and wasn't utterly useless in certain conditions.

Always find with these type of drafts that you are just one or two players away from what you really wanted, this is probably the closest I have got though.

I loved the Smith gamble. You were basically guaranteed De Kock as everyone else had taken keepers.

I made a mistake by filling keeper's position when I could have taken either Jayawardene or MoYo and then jumped to Kohli. Still would have had a shot at a number of other keepers if not de Kock.

In fact I made a mistake not doing the Smith gamble myself. Had half a mind to pick Inzi and then Smith. Would have left me 2 more players (one of which being keeper) to pick. Looked risky then but in hindsight, should have done that.

Think you pretty much always have to take the gamble. I almost took Kumble instead of Kallis to get my spinner sorted but think it was worth it.

Was hoping Cook would slip through obviously. Probably should've tried to sneak in Anwar but that risked not getting Steyn.

International Coach
Barry Richards
Bruce Mitchell [5]
Rahul Dravid
Virat Kohli (c)
Joe Root [6]
Rohan Kanhai
Mark Boucher (wk)
Peter Pollock [3]
Curtly Ambrose [2]
Clarrie Grimmett [4]
Fred Trueman [1]


Gun bowling with 3 ATGs. Ambrose and Trueman combo will be dreadful for opposition batsmen. Peter Pollock is a superb bowler to have as 1st change. And with spin of Clarrie Grimmett there will be no let up. All 4 average under 25 with the ball. Batting lacks a big name but Barry Richards, Kohli and Dravid provide strong core for Mitchell, Kanhai and Root to bat around. All 6 average above 47 with the bat. Boucher has tons of experience behind the wicket and provides a calm head at #7. Pollock is decent #8. Mitchell and Root can roll their arms occasionally. Kanhai will be the backup wicketkeeper.
