    Grace isn't in your squad. He had been dead for more than 30 years in the timeline (1945-1976) set for your team.

    Legends At Battle Season VIII
    Final (timeless Test)

    PROFESSIONAL XI vs POST-WAR XI


    at Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG), Melbourne, Victoria, Australia

    Toss: Post-war XI won the toss and chose to bowl


    Day 1

    So, it all comes down to this. Two of the mightiest teams in living memory pitted against each other in the ultimate prizefight - a timeless Test for the LAB crown.

    [​IMG]

    Len Hutton, taking over the reins of the Post-war XI once again, thought there could be a little something on offer for his bowlers early on and decided to have a bowl.

    [​IMG]

    Steve Waugh, the Professional XI captain looked quite content with being made to bat first, something which nearly always gives a team the edge in a final, especially at the MCG where you seldom see big totals being chased in the 4th innings of a Test on a regular basis. Even with all the fat bats and batting-friendly pitches going around. And so, the two legendary teams lined up as follows :-

    Sunil Gavaskar and Gordon Greenidge started off watchfully against the new ball as expected. However, the introduction of Jim Laker in the 12th over proved an immediate success with him trapping Gavaskar lbw for 14.

    The Professional XI went into lunch with the score at 76/1. Richards was batting well on 32 off 45, while his partner Gordon Greenidge on 23 off 103 had yet to break the shackles. It doesn't really matter in the large scheme of things with this being a timeless Test and all, but it would provide much better viewing if he was back to his swashbuckling best with the bat.

    He was finally gone in the 47th over, edging behind to Clyde Walcott off Fred Trueman's bowling. His knock of 29 off an astonishing 159 deliveries was undoubtedly his slowest ever in eight seasons of LAB. Greg Chappell was next in at No 4.

    Steve Waugh looked in good touch, but didn't quite have luck on his side this time. He was bowled edging onto his stumps off Bedser for 32 off 60. The belligerent Adam Gilchrist coming in at No 7 breathed some life back into the innings with two boundaries off his first three deliveries.

    Adam Gilchrist gave the Post-war XI's bowlers much grief before the close of play on Day 1. He went into the next day looking very good on 36 off just 42 balls. Chappell at the other end on 35 off 126, but looking quite comfortable at the crease, might look to play some shots on Day 2.

    But the fun was just getting started. Warne and McGrath took the Post-war XI's bowlers to the cleaners with some unexpectedly brilliant batting.

    Alec Bedser ended the charade by trapping Warne plumb in front for 42, just eight short of a half-century. Nonetheless, it was quite an exhibition as he had added 43 off only 61 balls for the final wicket alongside his fellow bowling lieutenant to take the Professional XI's first innings total to a previously unfathomable 370. This after being 294/8 at one stage.

    Steve Waugh did his best to unsettle the two resolute opening batsmen by using as many as seven different bowlers, including part-timers like Viv Richards and Allan Border. Eventually, it was the ever dependable Glenn McGrath who drew first blood by removing Hutton for 41 with around 12 overs to go till stumps.

    We need to get as many wickets as possible to stand a chance to win this. I hope Wasim, McGrath and Warne do much damage on Day 3 so that we can have something as a lead to add in our second innings.

    Following Hutton's example, Waugh also decided to start the day with spin for his team by bringing Shane Warne on to bowl the first over. The ploy seemed to be working with Sobers not looking particularly comfortable against him. A wicket might just be around the corner.

    At this stage, the Post-war XI were scoring at less than 2 an over with Sobers and Weekes biding their sweet time. One can't really criticize them with this match being a timeless Test where players are generally expected to score a lot slower than usual. But try telling that to the spectators.

    Garry Sobers eventually fell just four short of a half-century. His long 198-ball stay at the crease had come to an end courtesy of Wasim Akram. In walked Clyde Walcott at No 5.

    Clyde Walcott's eyes lighted up with the reintroduction of Greg Chappell's medium pace into the attack. He hit him for two consecutive boundaries, and one off Viv Richards' part-time offbreaks to bring up fifty.

    McGrath cut short Walcott's stay at 56 to pick up his fourth wicket of the innings. At this point, he was single-handedly leading the Professional XI's bowling effort having picked four of the five wickets to fall in the Post-war XI's innings.

    The Post-war XI lost another during the final passage of play with the previously reprieved Laker falling to Curtly Ambrose. The was just one over left in the day, and Wasim Akram will be tasked with bowling it.

    Akram was expected to sneak in another wicket before the close of play. But instead, he was carted for two glorious boundaries by Ilikena Bula, the greatest cricketer ever produced by Fiji. The day ended with the Post-war XI on 323/8 and trailing by 47 runs. It was a great comeback by the Professional XI, who reduced them from 244/3 to 323/8.

    We came back excellently with the old ball. Hopefully we'll get a lead.

    We have let the match slip through our hands... I just hope Ilikena Bula plays a really well knock here.

    But Fred Trueman eventually edged to slip off Wasim Akram after hanging around for 35 balls. The Post-war XI were now down to their last man Lance Gibbs. Can he hang on long enough for Bula to reach a well deserved fifty?

    He couldn't. Shane Warne trapped him plumb in front for a 7-ball duck to pick his first wicket of the innings, after having toiled for 34.4 overs. The Post-war XI were bowled out for 344, leaving Bula stranded on 49 and conceding a 26-run lead to the Professional XI.

    Greenidge brought up only his second half-century of a lean season with the bat where he was averaging only 31.25 from 9 innings. He had once again lived up to his reputation of saving his best for the last and most crucial game of the tournament, just like he had done previously in seasons II, VI and VII. A true big match player if ever there was one.
