    Wow, great great top 5 that. Make Armstrong the captain, as well.

    Completes my frontline bowling line-up of Lohmann, Turner, Ferris and Briggs which IMO is a very strong attack.

    Fantastic attack that. Was eyeing both Turner and Ferris actually but you beat me to the punch on both of them. Still I've got a few decent bowlers myself so I'm not fussed.

    Whoops, original pick was Jack Cowie but unfortunately it turns out he doesn't count under my rules, so instead I take Ken Farnes, a genuinely fast bowler of great renown who sadly died very young in WWII. A more-than-able replacement, and him and Larwood should make an exciting new-ball pairing, although there may be concerns about Bodyline!

    Without the WW1 motorcycle accident this man would surely have gone on to become the world's greatest allrounder

    I have been peeking into this thread once in a while, and interesting how good the teams look. I had initially thought there would be very little choice available from pre-war cricketers (though there are a few that I hadn't heard of before. Good to learn about them too).
