    Went for Ranji, even though he didn't play much during this period he was hard to ignore.

    I nearly went for Shrewsbury (WG once said "give me Arthur" and if he was good enough for him...) but in the end I vote for Rnji.
    Ian Botham, Freddie Flintoff, Kevin Pietersen, Brian Laudrup, Gazza and Daniela Hantuchova....a fan of you all FOREVER!!!
    Can't wait to see Australia field a crap leg-spinner like Hollland or Hohns again.....
    Congratulations to Daniela Hantuchova on her 3rd career title....
    Bob Woolmer 1948-2007..farewell to the best coach England never had...
    Arise Sir Beefy....

    Don't really know if he fits better at 3 or 4 but I'll go with Ranji to make sure he gets in.

    I am going for F S Jackson.

    Avg of 48 (higher than anyone else), a very good captain of England (who won the ashes) and was a marked contrast to A C McLaren, he could bowl too I think, and more to the point, was the man Rhodes said was at his best with his back to the wall.

    So F S Jackson for me.
