    Can't be worse than Shane Watson

    Might get Compo to open then, gives him the opportunity to bat aggressively and take advantage of the fields while preventing him from being in charge of working it around in the middle overs.

    Would love to see the percentage of runouts he was involved in. I don't entirely buy that perception yet
    Oh for a strong arm and a walking stick

    I considered him with my last two picks. I always struggle with the fact he was a cheat and a bully. But no doubt he'd have been a great ODI player, and he'd have definitely enjoyed the cash on offer from the IPL and other T20 comps.

    Subhash Gupte.

    He's a big turner of the ball, has a wonderful googly and remained incredibly economical throughout his whole career.

    Frank Woolley

    Will bat at 6 and be a 6th bowling option of good variety if needed. Strikes me as a good "finisher" because of his style, and he also adds a bit in the field.

    Frank Edward Woolley, who died aged 91, was beyond doubt one of the finest and most elegant left-handed all-rounders of all time. In a first-class career extending from 1906 to 1938 he hit 58,969 runs - a total exceeded only by Sir Jack Hobbs - including 145 centuries, to average 40.75; he took 2,068 wickets for 19.85 runs each, and he held 1,015 catches, mainly at slip, a record which remains unsurpassed.
    Even more impressive than the number of runs Woolley amassed was the manner in which he made them. Standing well over six feet, he was a joy to watch. He played an eminently straight bat, employed his long reach to full advantage, and used his feet in a manner nowadays rarely seen. His timing of the ball approached perfection and he generally dealt surely with all types of bowling. Master of all the strokes, he was at his best driving, cutting, and turning the ball off his legs. He was described by Sydney Pardon as the cleanest driver since F. G. J. Ford. As a bowler he made good use of his height and bowled with a graceful easy swing.

    'Patsy' Hendren



    Patsy Hendren, who died in a London hospital on October 4, 1962, aged 73, was one of the most famous batsmen to play for Middlesex and England. Only one cricketer, Sir John Hobbs, in the whole history of the first-class game hit more centuries than Hendren's 170; only two, Hobbs and F. E. Woolley, exceeded his aggregate of runs, 57,610 at an average of 50.80 per innings.
    "Patsy," as, because of his Irish ancestry, he was affectionately known the world over, joined the Lord's groundstaff in 1905 and from his first appearance for Middlesex in 1909 he played regularly till 1937. Not always orthodox in style, this short, stockily-built batsman was celebrated for the power with which he invested his driving, for his cutting and for his courage in hooking fast bowlers. On pitches helpful to bowlers he used his feet with consummate skill. His ability as a deep fieldsman is illustrated to some extent by the number of catches he brought off, 725, but the number of runs he saved cannot be gauged.
    Apart from his achievements, "Patsy" was a "character" of a type sadly lacking in modern cricket. No game in which he was engaged could be altogether dull. If it looked like becoming so, Hendren could be relied upon at one time or another to produce some antic which would bring an appreciative chuckle from the onlookers.
