Taller the better. The heights are all from memory and a little looking
around.

ML Hayden 6-4"
DL Haynes 6-2"
Graeme Pollock 6-2"
GS Chappell 6-2"
CH Lloyd  6-4" (capt)
AW Greig 6-7"
Clyde Walcott 6-2" (wk)
Joel Garner 6-8"
GD McGrath 6-6"
CEL Ambrose 6-7"
RGD Willis 6-5"

Heh Heh... It was a fun exercise. :)

Nuwan Zoysa? His inability to find a place in this team is a typical
example of the bias against SL prevalent in this ng.

Considering both Oram and Reid are ahead of McGrath in this, your statement
is stupid.

Nothing personal against the man.  It's just that he can't bat and certainly
can't bowl, and I already had a wicket-keeper.

He could do with an extra ten inches, too.

Unfortunately, because of the way things have transpired, he's
battling Garner for a place. Nothing personal against the man, but if
he wants to replace Garner in a Dunford selected team, he needs to do
more than be tall.

Other also-rans include Daniel Vettori (5'11"); Viv Richards (5'10");
Malcolm Marshall (5'8" or so); and Garfield Sobers (too many fingers
at birth).
