    An acceptable way of squeezing SF Barnes, a top notch Googly bowler, and 3 quicks into the side.

    Quite like that side apart from having a comparative muppet wielding the gloves.

    Here's my new take that wasn't invented on the spot whilst I was on the train (no Bradman)

    Jack Hobbs
    Herbert Sutcliffe

    Rahul Dravid
    Sachin Tendulkar

    Keith Miller
    VVS Laxman
    Rod Marsh
    Ray Lindwall
    Dennis Lillee

    What about a Miller and his mates XI? I know he was great friends with Larwood, O'Reilly, Compton, Lindwall - I'll dig around some of my books now, I think you could make a seriously deadly XI from them.

    "c Marsh b Lillee" is certainly one of the most fascinating partnerships, well thought out.

    Throughout his Australian career Lillee was also famous for his partnership with wicketkeeper Rod Marsh, and the scorecard entry 'c Marsh b Lillee' appeared 95 times in Tests, a partnership record between wicketkeeper and bowler that is yet to be broken. Coincidentally, both players ended their careers with 355 Test dismisals

    Miller and Mates XI

    - B. Woodfull (Miller's school headmaster and a man he greatly admired)
    - S. Watson (Read a book about Miller once to try and become cooler and less of a knob)
    - I. Chappell (Miller was his childhood hero, and they drank together as adults)
    - N. Harvey (Often recollected in Chappelli and Miller drinking session stories)
    - L. Hassett (Greatly admired by Miller as a man and leader)
    - D. Compton (England's version of Miller and close friend of Miller's)
    - K. Miller (captain)
    - R. Benaud (Delivered the eulogy at Miller's funeral)
    - S. Loxton (Aus teammate and great mate of Miller and Harvey)
    - R. Lindwall (partner in crime)
    - B. O'Reilly (Happy to take Jager's word for it)




    Harvey or Chappelli might have to keep. Ian Johnson probably not in the touring party.

    Lillee
    O'Reilly

    Very hard exclusion of Lindwall and Harvey

    Finally came to conclusion about all time England team

    England XI

    Hobbs
    Hutton
    Hammond
    May
    Compton
    Woolley
    Knott
    Larwood
    Verity
    Trueman
    Barnes
    Love both those teams, especially the English one.

    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta

    And he's been world class more or less that whole time. That's what sets him apart.

    He didn't forget him; Sam Loxton was just correctly adjudged the better bowler.
