Yeah 1928/9 and 1932/33
Since then we've only won in 54/55, 70/71, 78/79, 86/87 and last time
If Cummins and Harris are unfit (and let's face it, they usually are), add in NCN and/or Alister McDermott as squad bowlers. Luke Feldman a possible bolter as well, IMO. That's 13 quicks that I reckon could at least handle themselves at that level. Success being a whole other ballgame though, obviously.
Hastings has done his dash, as has MJ.
He strikes me like a 2008/2009 Broad; I've got no doubt that he could bowl a match winning spell, but he probably won't be a consistent threat.
He does have the knack of taking wickets even when he's bowling tripe.

Ed Cowan looks likely to sign with Notts.
Didn't work out all that well last time we had an opener sign up for a county stint in the lead up to the Ashes.
I'm also enjoying reading folk dismiss Pietersen. Quite simply, when he's on it, he is the best batsman in world cricket. By a long, long way, he's the best batsman on either side between Australia and England. His average is still 49/50 despite his apparent problems.
