Now that I have completed my series of articles on All Time XIs by the alphabet, I thought it would be worthwhile opening the decision on which team is best to you Roarers.
We finish with the Ws. As expected, this team is immensely strong and probably the most thrilling of all the teams.
After a three month hiatus while I wasted my long service leave watching the Australian cricket team in England, then held my breath for the current series, it’s time to finish the Alphabet XI series given there are only two teams to go.
There were some big decisions to be made in compiling this team. Which tearaway – the Terror or Typhoon?; which Hugh, Tayfield or Trumble?; where do I bat Trumper?; and how many of the 17 Taylors to have played Tests do I pick?
This team should be strong given the deep talent pool to choose from. However I did find it hard to compile given the number of similarly high quality openers and spinners and surprisingly few middle order options.
With the pairs of Richards (and sons) and Russells, as well as other high quality players, the ‘R’ Team is perhaps best described as ‘light heavyweight”’– strong and powerful but just below a few of the others. Still, this is a very strong team.
