    Pick one former player to add to your current Test team

    If you could pick one player from your country's past to bolster the current side, who would it be?

    Me, I'm working on a shortlist of Hammond, Botham, Trueman and Larwood. Maybe Botham (pre-mullet).

    I'd love to have Trueman but Hammond makes by far the most sense to step in given the balance of the side.

    If Strauss doesn't turn it around soon, I'll have Hutton to open and captain.
    And we still haven't walked in the glow of each other's majestic presence.

    Yes I'd go for Hammond, although as it's England presumably we could have Graeme Pollock?

    Of all the Test nations, I think only Australia has actually tried to do this.

    Kapil Dev would slot in very nicely. Question is whether you drop a batsman or a bowler. I'd drop a bowler and bat Dev at 8.

    Given that Kapil would walk into the current side as a specialist bowler but probably wouldn't make it as a batsman, why is it even a question?

    Not that I'm a fan of him in particular, but Tony Grieg in for Morgan would be quite neat.
