    How many of these players would have played one day cricket for England

    ......................had they been around in this era. They all had good county one day records at a time when not many non Test players were considered, hence England opened with Boycott and Brearley in the 1979 World Cup. (admittedly they chose a specialist wicketkeeper in Ian Gould, though I still don't know why they didn't choose David Bairstow).

    Peter Lee
    Harry Pilling
    John Whitehouse
    Graham Johnson
    David Hughes
    David Turner
    Harry Pilling
    Richard Lumb
    Stuart Turner
    Keith Pont
    Andy Stovold
    John Rice

    a lot of those players are what I would classify as county plodders, ie. perfectly serviceable county champ pros who simply wouldnt have the talent to perform anywhere near the standard required at international level....although I dont know who John Whitehouse or John Rice were

    Exactly...this is sort of player who England have chosen in recent years, eg Solanki, Matthew Flemming, Vince Wells etc who are nowhere near good enough for International Cricket.

    It was the first completely irrelevant word that came to my head at that moment in time. Now, I think I see why...

    'Should of' has become a part of culture which has never properly been corrected at school level.
