Having Trueman as the lone fast-bowler spearhead is not desirable in an ATG team IMO
Um, Bedser opened the bowling in every test he played...
Botham opened the bowling around half the time. So my attack is...
Trueman - Bedser - Botham - SF Barnes - Verity

That's absurd! You cannot POSSIBLY say that Brearley could be considered in an ATG team!
Brearley is probably the worst top 6 batsman to ever play more than 20 tests for England or Australia.
