Very happy with this side - 8 ATGs (including the one and only WG), 1 future one in Marnus, and 2 who would've been but for short careers in Donnelly and Harris.

Amazing opening pair, very strong middle order and tail, and superb allround bowling attack including a ridiculously good spin attack. Gun fielding side too with Donnelly and Marnus in the ring, Simpson at slip, and Williamson in the gully. Might have to hide WG though!

I was frustrated a number of times when my intended selections went a couple of picks before mine - but that's the game.

I'm happy enough with this line-up. Two well credentialed openers followed by 3 run machines. Keeper Stewart and all-rounders Flintoff and Botham give great depth to the batting and are great support for opening bowlers Steyn and Tyson. Gibbs is a reliable spinner who has provided great support for speedsters in the past.

Two legendary openers to see off the new ball and rob bowlers of their will to live. The middle order is filled with blokes who score quickly by contrast and I've got a well rounded pace attack and spinners who turn the ball either way.

Nourse and Younis were the most frustrating near misses for me. I was on plan Z towards the end and one more near miss away from an existential crisis.

This is basically an anti-hb side at it's finest, these guys don't care about secondary **** but they are some of the best at the primary skill sets of bowling, batting, fielding (? I have no clue), ball tampering, fixing etc. Also this is one rad middle order (I think )
