Thorpey and Ding Dong stretches too, much as I love the former.
Or is this a "positional average" XI dealy?
Doesn't look like it seeing as there's no Barnes, Blythe etc, and Beefy is worked in at #8.
Toyed for a bit with leaving out Beefy, and despite him having a big claim to being the greatest ever England cricketer, I think you can justify leaving him out for a more reliable batsman like Woolley. In the end I kept him in but sacrificed Knott for Ames to help out the top six, otherwise I reckon the Windies effort would have something over us in the batting.
