Three of the top four average in excess of 50 and actually when opening the batting so does Bob Simpson, meaning there's clear strength at the top of the order. Bob Simpson was also a fairly handy legspinner if needed.
CB Fry looks like the weak link here, and in terms of test statistics he clearly is. However a first class average of 50+ and 94 centuries shows he was no slouch with the bat.
Tony Greig is next in, with a solid batting average and will certainly get a bowl. Farokh Engineer was one of the world's best wicket keepers behind the stumps and was pretty handy with the bat too. I'd presume therefore that he would stand up to Gerig putting the stumping into play.
The front line bowling is lead by the ineffable George Lohmann, a quality bowler and ridiculous wicket taker. He's backed up by the pace and swing of Allan Donald to provide a fiery new ball pairing.
The brunt of the bowling would be done by two of England's finest spinners. Hedley Verity and Derek Underwood weren't slow spinners by any means, and would have the ball shooting all over the place. Jacob Oram in his allrounder role makes up the team, and would probably come in for Underwood on a particularly seam friendly wicket.
Given the relative strengths of the players, and 7 Englishmen in the team, I'd have thought playing on uncovered English pitches would be hugely beneficial to the team.
