    I'm a John Snow fan (especially when partnered with Lillee which would be awesome), and like the idea of two spinners, so the second option works for me.

    However, most people would prefer Ian Botham I think. So if you are after votes then Ian Botham going in at No.7 or No.8 depending on whether you think he is a better batsman than Denis Lindsay or not, probably wins the day. That is, Monk's and PEW's choice.

    (Incidently, if Botham is batting at No.6 for our CW ATG England team then I sincerely hope that he is a better batsman than Denis Lindsay and bats higher than the South African. Otherwise we are being rather inconsistant)

    Just a tentatitive suggestion - If everyone posts their finalised team in the correct batting order then I am happy to set up the voting thread.

    (I am assuming here that Jager is working many hours and therefore very tired)

    Great team top to bottom, excellent aggressive batting order, extremepace, accuratcy, wrist and finger spin and lots of aggression in the bowling attack. Five test captains and a great fielding side with a great wicket keeper and excellent cordon as well. A top five opener, middle order batsman, pacer and spinner on display.
    Proud of effort on this one.

    I make that everyone except Jager who is probably working out whether to play two spinners or not.

    BTW Andy, great photo of Walters and Sobers not being very sober.
