Having the batsmen to at least give your bowlers SOMETHING is the main thing. Look at my West Indies attack. They have been nearly as good as anyone in the last 3-4 years but it’s only when the awful batting line up produces a century or two that it results in victoryI was having a think about this kind of thing a little while ago, noting that during the Australian cricket team's lowest on-field point during the mid-80's, they had a really fine battery of quicks. Even South Africa, in current times, which has fallen behind the 8-ball, still has a world class fast bowling lineup. Made me think that batsmen are possibly the most important facet to a team's lineup. Clearly, you need runs to win the match, but then again you can't win without taking 20 wickets. So I don't really know for sure lol.
Anyway, Jack Gregory was the real deal that's for sure. Australia's greatest all-rounder up until Miller.
