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

Colin Cowdrey for me thanks
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.
Round order (reverses for round 6)

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

"Causation - still a leading cause of correlation."
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.
Joao and Howe-Zat with very sexy teams from my heavily biased point of view!!
The sort of general malaise that only the genius possess and the insane lament.
Its just my opinion guys.
Max Walker for the 1974 tour thanks
