    Can anyone suggest a decent spinner starting with H? Not Harbajhan Singh as he'd be an S in my system.

    46 wickets in just 7 test matches !!

    avg 23.37 and strike rate 46.7 - fabulous for a spinner.

    Five five fors and 2 10 fors in just 7 tests.

    Amazing figures in a short career.

    Was Angus Fraser close to making your side?

    Jim Parks might make a better keeper (and batsman) than Parore.

    Ken Farnes makes it by being the fastest of the lot and figures very similar (marginally better ) to Fraser

    Fazal was a fabulous medium pacer compared by many to Bedser. Ferris is a legend with 61 wkts in 9 tests !! and Flintoff is an all rounder.

    Procter below Peter (and arguably Shaun) is a bit harsh. Long batting line up all the same.

    T would be a wonderful team to watch - it would have one of the scarier pace attacks ever, plus the incomparable (to watch) Trumper and Tallon.
    Trecothick
    Taylor, M
    Taylor, H
    Tendulkar
    Trumper
    Thorpe
    Tallon+
    Trueman
    Trumble/Tayfield
    Tyson
    Thompson
    You've lost all credibility leaving out Chris Tavare.

    Seriously though - I reckon Charlie Turner is a better bowler than anyone but Trueman in that team. Get him in there!

    Miller
    Marsh+
    Marshall
    Muralitharan
    McDermott/McKenzie/MacDonald
    McGrath

    With Martyn, Mushtaq and MacGill on the bench.
    Very even team with a lethal bowling attack.

    H:
    Hutton
    Hobbs
    Hammond
    Headley
    Harvey
    Hill
    Healy+
    Hadlee
    Holding
    Hughes
    Hoggard

    Easily the strongest batting of any one letter, bowling not quite as good as "M" or "L", and no decent spinner is an issue.

    L:
    Lawry
    Langer
    Lara
    Lloyd
    Laxman
    Langley+
    Lindwall
    Laker
    Larwood
    Lillee
    Lohmann
    L's bowling is top drawer, batting is quite strong, albeit a bit short.

    G is not bad either:
    Greenidge
    Gavaskar
    Grace
    Gomes
    Ganguly
    Gilchrist
    Grout+
    Gregory, J
    Gillespie
    Garner
    Grimmett

    Cheating and playing Gilchrist as a specialist bat.
    Great sides mate - I'd have Hall over Hughes though in the H attack, and I reckon Tom Graveney deserves a spot ahead of Larry Gomes in the G batting line up.

    I stuffed up the H's, yes Hall should be there ahead of one of Hoggard or Hughes (I initally forgot about Hadlee and had Trevor Hohns in - which I knew was wrong).

    I had Graveney in until I realised I'd forgotten one W.G. Grace. I'd probably leave out Grout, make Gilly keeper, ditch one of Gomes or Ganguly for one of Graveney, Gatting, or Gower.

    Can't believe I'd forgotten Gower - one of my favourite players.

    Goddard, Giffen, Gibbs and Gupte all unlucky too.

    Peter May a contender for the Ms?

    Can't argue too much there - Frank Foster a potential addition to the bowling attack, and I reckon I'd definitely have Stephen Fleming in the side, either in place of RE Foster, or in place of Fingleton (moving Fry up to open and Fleming in at no.3).
