    Redpath is quite a top player so good pick IMO. Has to be said, some fantastic batsmen in this era.

    The 1960's was a tough time to pick a series from. 15 draws and just 10 results tells the story of just how sedate this era was. Should I pick something that was representative of this? I decided against this and have instead gone for the one shining light, right at the start of the decade. A topsy-turvy contest, with Australia managing to win at foreign soil.

    For round 5 we have the 1961 ashes.

    @ Howe_zat. My thinking when combining the 40's and 30's together was not so much about the war, than about that alot of the guys who played in the 40's played most of their careers in the 50's too. Which would make picking a series from the 50's with minimal crossover exceedingly difficult.

    Anyway, there's nothing wrong with picking pre-war players. Just requires a bit of study, that's all

    Okay mate, I'll take your word for it.

    Some top bowlers in that series, finally my chance to get a top quick.

    Are people picking players on Ashes record or overall record? I am choosing based on the latter.

    Amiss' record against the WI is fantastic. When Cribb gets done with his standardized averages, I'd love to see how he compares with the likes of Hayden, Sehwag and Kallis.

    You can pick on either, but I think when we vote it comes down to overall record.

    I am picking my players on the basis of their Ashes performances. If we have to pick the Englishmen and Aussies on their performance against other nations then whats the point of having an Ashes draft? Its just like another random draft with a different format.

    Its just my opinion guys.

    Yeah, I'm inclined to agree. Ashes performances suits me down to the ground, I've got Gower in my team.

    Thanks!

    God willing, it will continue. I am going to need help from the people selecting above me in the coming round. That said there are plenty of awesome players in that series.
