    Here is some reasonable footage of Ken Farnes bowling several deliveries. Has a surprisingly fluid action for a tall bloke. I'm guessing 6'5'' or 6'6''.

    Gubby Allen, Bill Voce and Walter Hammond are also featured.

    Great team there, especially the attack. Garner and Lindwall to share the new ball I imagine?

    Agreed. Blakus is the current front-runner for mine (if I'm allowed to say such a thing).

    A lot depends on the last two Clauses though!
