Big Kiwi Ewen Chatfield only batted once not at number 11. While he wasn't the bunny that DK Morrison or Aislabie Chris Martin were, he's got an E in his name, so he goes into my team.

@Neptune
Also to mention he was a pretty great bowler, acting as a right hand to Richard Haddlee

Bio from wiki:

One of Australia's all-time favourite cricketing sons, Neil Harvey was a gifted left-hand batsman, brilliantly athletic fielder, and occasional offspin bowler. On account of the richness of his talents, he served Victoria, New South Wales and Australia with great distinction during a first-class career which spanned the 16-year period between 1946-47 and 1962-63.

In short, Harvey was an electrifying batsman who thrilled spectators with the splendour of his strokeplay. He possessed a masterful technique as well as a full range of shots and he displayed to cricket followers a superbly steadfast temperament right from the moment, as a teenager, that he played his opening first-class innings. Throughout a career which ultimately netted him in excess of 20,000 first-class runs, bowlers rarely found a way of disrupting his concentration or curbing his attacking instincts. He also possessed disarming power for a man of relatively short height. There will be many performances for which he will be remembered but foremost among them were his 153 against India in his second Test (an innings which made him the youngest-ever Australian to score a Test century); his 112 in the celebrated Leeds Test of 1948; his 151 in Durban in 1949-50; and his highest Test score of 205 against South Africa in Melbourne in 1952-53. Most discussions of Neil Harvey's career are also considered to be incomplete without mention of his achievement in amassing six centuries in his first 13 Test innings alone.

Though he did not play many international matches, but his first class stats say everything about him. Making the lives difficult for batsmen with a high arm action and decent pace, Craig is capable of moving the ball both ways and pitching it on the probing line and length.
From batting point of view, he is not just a tailender who would give his wicket away just like that. He is a good batsman capable of producing vital partnerships down the order. And we have witnessed this fact in international cricket also.
He played 6 out of his 8 innings at no. 9 position.(75%)
