4h between the start of that round and everyone selecting. That must be some kind of record. Hold on and I'll compile the results.

Round 5, pick a bowler round:

Pick a player who has taken more wickets than they have played tests. Invalid picks will be replaced by the eligible player with the most wickets who has played the same number of tests, or the eligible player who has played the nearest number of tests.

Most of you followed the rules this time. Well done. Of course a few of you decided to expand the ban list instead.

International 12th Man
Cummins and Roberts are very good picks, wasn't expecting a bowlers-only round but thought it might be to do with handedness with bowling hand only counting if they've bowled a delivery or something

7) Jack Gregory o /
8) Alan Davidson o /
9) Wasim Bari + /
10) Qasim Umar /
11) Alec Bedser o

feel this is the right batting order.
