I know next to nothing about Clive Eksteen and he barely played anyway so I'll gladly not comment on him; Adams was clearly pretty hopeless and not surprisingly so either, but he's a wristspinner and that applies to most of them. One could argue Symcox was > Harris but it's debateable. There's no way I'd put either Boje or Henderson as > Harris. = at best.
Clearly all bar Adams were better batsmen though, Symcox and Boje especially.
