Quality control draft 2.0

BTW, for me Saqlain as 2nd spinner is pretty good too. 2nd spinner will come into play when there is assistance from the pitch, and when there is, Saqlain is going to be very dangerous. I always rate him highly. He nailed Indian batsmen in India with 4 fivers in 2 games.
Yes, your bowling attack is excellent. Better than mine I'd say.

Bruce Yardley, who bowled quiet a lot with Lillee & Thommo, to do the duty of 2nd spinner in my team.

CricZo XI

Len Hutton /
Graham Gooch /
Frank Worrell / o (c)
Martin Crowe /
Frank Woolley / o
Ian Botham / o
Ian Healy + /
Bruce Yardley o /
Dennis Lillee o
Bill O'Reilly o
Jeff Thomson o

- ATG openers in Hutton & Gooch
- Legendary Worrell to lead the team and bat at No.3, will be supported by Martin Crowe and Frank Woolley
- One of the ATG all rounder in Ian Botham to bat at No.3 and do the duty of 3rd seamer in the team
- Ian Healy is considered as one of the finest gloveman and did play crucial match saving or match winning knocks in the 90s
- Bill O'Reilly needs no introduction and Bruce Yardley took almost 4 wickets a match that too in the presence of Lillee & Thommo which speaks how effective he was and he did very well with the bat too
- Extremely happy with the fiery pace attack of Dennis Lillee, Jeff Thomson & Ian Botham - which is enough to destroy many top orders

To quote the legendary Half Man Half Biscuit's song about the great man, ****in' 'ell. Not the first time I've been thwarted, but happily it will be the last!

Instead I'll go for Paul Strang (bowling 31+) to round out the team.

Which leaves me with this XI:

Bill Lawry* LHB 5234 runs @ 47.15
Ravi Shastri RHB 3860 @ 35.79; SLA 151 wickets @ 40.97
David Boon RHB 7422 @ 43.66
Jacques Kallis RHB 13,289 @ 55.37; RFM 292 @ 32.65
Mike Hussey RHB 6235 @ 51.53; RM 7 @ 43.71
Andrew Flintoff RHB 3845 @ 31.78; RF 226 @ 32.79
BJ Watling+ RHB 3658 @ 38.51; 231 catches, 8 stumpings
Paul Strang RHB 839 @ 27.06; LB 70 @ 36.03
Hedley Verity RHB 669 @ 20.91; SLA 144 @ 24.38
Joel Garner RHB 672 @ 12.44; RF 259 @ 20.98
Morne Morkel LHB 944 @ 11.65; RF 309 @ 27.67


Actually probably turned out better than I was fearing at one point. Very solid top four, none of whom gave their wicket away, and a middle order to possibly quicken the scoring to take the game away from the oppo, and a keeper who can bat time with the lower order if needs be. Hussey also one of the best tail shepherders out there too.

Three big, tall genuine quicks to put the fear of god into any batsman, and Kallis's underrated and brisk swing to utilise conditions that are conducive.

Three viable spinning options, so an XI that could be effective on the subcontinent too.

Love this side. Bumrah and Starc with the new ball and then later on when the ball can reverse. Can take the pitch out of the equation anywhere with their pace, bounce and yorkers as well as ability to seam AND swing the ball both ways. If there is any swing, a succession of excellent fast medium to medium fast bowlers in Greig, Curran, Watson, Hammond, Walters will ensure there is literally no respite for any batting side. Of course, if there is spin, Gupte, Bevan and Katich will ensure no one goes big with their wrist spin and Greig will chip in with his offspin for good measure. And with batting down till #9 and some of the ATGs in that line up, I never have to worry about getting enough runs on any track to ensure this great attack can take care of the rest.

Cool, I'll take fawad alam as my 32-36 pick.

1.Virender Sehwag
2.Warren Bardsley
3.Hashim Amla
4.Steven Smith
5.Fawad Alam
6.MS Dhoni +
7.Monty Noble 5
8.Richard Hadlee 1
9.Graeme Swann 4
10.Michael Holding 2
11.Ishant Sharma 3

Think I've got one of the better bowling attacks, batting is a bit weak though.

Also on the topic of picks, surprised noene picked ajay Sharma. The >32 bracket mostly went to WK's or 65th bowlers but still a bit weird to see noene draft him, think it was a great draft in the scheme of things.

I thought Graeme Wood might get picked. Opening bat who hit 9 centuries and averaged 31. 9 centuries is surely the most anyone got in that category

For some reason I don't see this thread on the forum page.

Edit: think it was because mr_mister got added to my ignore list by accident haha
 

Fuller Pilch

International Vice-Captain
The biggest unselected surprises for me were Joe Root (47.99) in the 44-48 group, Vengsakar in 40-44s, and Prasanna Jayawardene as an under 32 keeper.
