    Just out of interest @VC the slogger , what did you rate Bradman for this match. If you like you can PM me the rating.

    78 when I last checked. And IIRC somewhere in the 60s for that match where he got a triple ton.

    EDIT: Also, I played the match on a normal pitch to avoid the unrealistic glut of boundaries or strike-rates in the 100s that you would otherwise get with such ratings on excellent and poor pitches.

    Len Hutton led from the front with a century in the first innings when batting was at it's most difficult, and later a stroke-filled 75 off just 98 balls in the second innings as his team quite impressively chased down a big target of 331.

    Following a mediocre first innings where they were bowled out for just 240, the Professional XI came back with a vengeance in the second innings to bury the One-Test Wonders under a humongous lead of 605. Brian Lara and Allan Border both recorded centuries, with Sunil Gavaskar only narrowly missing out.

    The eventual margin of defeat didn't do justice to the One-Test Wonders, who played a lot better than the scorecards suggest. Gus Kempis, who played in South Africa's inaugural Test match in 1889 showed what a brilliant bowler he could be on his day with a 6-wicket haul to dismantle the Professional XI lineup in the first innings, and finished with 9 for the match. Stuart Law, with two plucky half-centuries to his name also provided a glimpse of what might have been if only his Test career hadn't coincided with that of Ricky Ponting.

    Despite the slip up in the first innings, we showed why we are just too good. I think our bowling attack might just be the best in the tournament. And we've got Hadlee and Botham on the bench.

    Despite the pitch and conditions being hugely in favor of the batsmen, Dennis Lillee was back to his terrifying best at his beloved WACA ground. He finished the match with figures of 11-161 across both innings. And to think he wasn't even selected for either the Post-war or Professional XIs that cover his career.

    Malcolm Marshall, another all conditions bowler finished with a respectable 7 wickets for the match providing Lillee with good support to help a lineup of rejected players defeat one of the strongest sides set to take part in the upcoming Legends At Battle season.

    On the batting front, it was another reject in Younis Khan who made good for himself with an uncharacteristically dominant 187 off 210 balls in the first innings less than a week fresh from his international retirement.

    Meanwhile, Jacques Kallis also showcased his penchant for lengthy knocks by scoring a 337-ball 170 in the first innings for the Twenty20 Era XI. He still had enough stamina in him to bowl 28 overs across both innings and fetch a total of 3 wickets for his team.

    Lineup rules

    1) A proper wicket-keeper (:wk:/:wkb:/:arwk:) in your XI.
    2) A minimum of 4 players marked to bowl. I would suggest a minimum of 5 for matches on flat pitches to keep your frontline bowlers from total exhaustion.
    3) Players ruled out due to injury cannot be selected.
    5) The time limit for posting lineups is 96 hours. I will likely go with a random lineup if your lineup isn't posted within that time.
    6) You must also ensure all your associate players (:pst:) get at least one game over the course of the main tournament.

    Player rarities

    In each squad, players have been marked with these icons to give you a fair idea of their playing skills and overall usefulness to your team.

    :purpo: - Legend. Used for the players that are undoubtedly the best of the lot.
    :goldo: - Gold. Used for players with a high level of consistency and ability to deliver during key moments.
    :redo: - Ruby. Used for players that are extremely talented and can play in a way no one else can replicate.
    :slvo: - Silver. Used for players that aren't as talented as their Gold/Ruby/Legend contemporaries, but still capable of holding their own against the best in business.

    Explanation on pitch types

    Dusty - Plenty of turn on offer for spinners and a good place to bat for spin-savvy batsmen. Good pace bowlers are still likely to thrive.
    Evenly balanced - Provides an evenly balanced contest for all disciplines.
    Flat - A batsman-friendly pitch which provides little or no assistance to bowlers. Expect big totals.
    Green - A lot of movement on offer, which makes it ideal for bowlers capable of swinging the ball.
    Hard - Ideal conditions for batting. Good deal of bounce on offer for fast bowlers as well. Could go either way.
    Dry/Slow - Ideal for slow and spin bowlers as the name suggests. Sometimes quite difficult to bat on.

    Those expecting the Professional XI to simply turn up and dominate were in for a rude shock, as Victor Trumper and KS Ranjitsinhji - two of the greatest batsmen of cricket's "Golden Age" put up scores of 183 and 205 respectively. The Golden Age XI finished with a mammoth total of 552 before declaring their innings.

    [​IMG]


    The Professional XI's bowlers were made to look powerless with the pitch not really acting the way they might have hoped apart from the first hour or two of play on the 1st day of the Test. None more so than Shane Warne, who finished with figures of 1 for 162 from 48.3 overs, reminding him an awful lot of his inglorious Test debut.

    Viv Richards put behind a poor performance in the warm-up match to return to his usual aggressive best with the bat. His 183 off 292 balls proved vital after the Professional XI lost Sunil Gavaskar, Adam Gilchrist, Brian Lara and Allan Border for not too many. They managed to avoid the follow-on, eventually finishing with 413 to concede a 139-run lead.

    [​IMG]

    The legendary Sydney Barnes finished with figures of 6 for 72 from 23.3 overs. Among his scalps were Gavaskar, Gilchrist, Lara, Border and Imran Khan.

    Luck continued to elude Warne, although the rest of the Professional XI's bowling lineup fared a lot better in the second innings. Warwick Armstrong's unbeaten half-century helped the Golden Age XI's lead well past 350. They finally declared early on the 5th day with the score on 228, giving the Professional XI a target of 368 to chase with the best part of a day remaining in the match.

    The Professional XI's lower-order showed a great deal of resilience to bat out nearly 27 overs following the dismissal of Steve Waugh, their last specialist batsman. Things couldn't have gotten more tense than the final over of the day when Shane Warne was caught napping by the lightning-quick Gregor MacGregor, who whipped the bails off in a flash to get him out stumped off Wilfred Rhodes. This meant that Glenn McGrath, the No 11 batsman and one of world cricket's most renowned bunnies had to survive the next five balls in order to save the Test for his team.

    There were a few close calls, but he managed to hang on and help his team draw the match by the skin of their teeth.
