    Is it possible for Jamee and myself to share?

    If yes, he can select for the first round
    You know it makes sense.

    I wonder how many rounds it will take until someone picks a legend of the game and his dud first-class standard brother.

    Going to nail my county colours to the mast straight away and select Micky and Alec Stewart. Alec needs no introduction, England's most capped Test player for one, but Stewart senior was a pretty useful player in his own right, an opening bat who might have played many more times for England if he hadn't been contemporary with the likes of Boycott and Edrich, and a world class close fielder who at one time was the only man to take seven catches in an innings (since equalled I think). He captained Surrey for most of the 60s, not a golden age in the club's history it has to be said but did lead them to the Championship in 1971, his final season. Later England's first full-time coach.

    Just occurred to me that had Zaremba been playing he could have got an entire Sussex squad this way - filled it up with brothers who's played for the county.

    The other thing I meant to mention about Micky Stewart is that he prevented Henry Blofeld from becoming perhaps the most unlikely Test player ever. On a tour of India in 1963-64 he rose from his sickbed to take his place in the starting line-up when Blofeld, accompanying the team as a journalist, was being lined up to play. Stewart took no part in the match after tea on the first day. I'm sure that Blowers, sticking to his diet of cake and champers, would have made it through the game.

    Might wanna edit those names out (not Blowers ) - as that's 3 very good families you've just named.

    Plenty more where they came from tbh - and I can't see too many picking Ian Greig except as a last resort - which is pretty much what England did.

    Take your point with the others though.

    Might've just taken Alec & his former brother-in-law ahead of the old man, myself. Tightish call tho.
