Yoda_ Was thinking Labuschagne had been lucky in this series with the Poms dropping him all the time(& last year too against India) and this article backs it up...
Bangladesh trying to outdo Tim Paine and Shane Watson for worst reviews of all time.
Ok I was saving my last spot for either Doc Whielden or Peter Bradbury (who was a very handy player and part of the 1984 Premiership side) but I’ve decided to delve deeper and go back to the 1911-12 Premiership sides.

Bob Syme - Ruckman in 49’ & ‘50 flags

Known for tagging some of the best players of the era.
Bit top heavy with ‘84 guys but had to have him since I had his...
That’s a bloody good time. Averaging 3.38 per km🙀
