2)Bill Woodfull (captain)
I'm not going to waste time trying to sell these batsmen to you. Their genius is well known.
A truly underrated genius if there ever was one.
Averaged over 50 in Tests and nearly 45 in a long FC career with the bat. At that time such an average was arguably worth a fair bit more than a modern-day 45.
Also averaged under 30 with the ball in FC cricket - very useful indeed.
7)Billy Murdoch +
Nearly 40000 runs at more than 30. 4204 wickets at 16.72 The guy was a bit special.
I think it's safe to say that a majority believe he was the best leg spinner the world had seen until Shane Warne created his legend.
2063 wickets at 20 is very, very useful to have waiting in the wings for a pacers pitch.
So there you have it. A team that genuinely bats to 9, and contains 4 high-quality specialist bowlers as well as two very good batting allrounders who can chip in with the ball with ease (McCabe and Ryder).

Got to love Pre-war drafts like this. Looking through the teams and there are a few that are a bit better than others. Will have a closer look once I get home, but good job everyone. Some great looking teams here.

Agent narrowly ahead of RVD who are both streaks ahead of the rest of the competition. MrPrez steals third ahead of morgie and Cabinet.

Cabinet, MorgieB and MrPrez for me.
MrPrez got me with the combination of McCabe, Jackson and Compton as one of the most dynamic and elegant batting orders in a draft ever. As well as that he has O'Reilly, who I consider a truly great bowler, and Woodful, a great captain and obstinate opener.
MorgieB has the best opening combo of the lot, as well as the great Woolley in the middle order. A very versatile attack too, spearheaded by George Lohmann.
Cabinet has a lot of quality across the boards, Hobbs, Turner, Paynter, Oldfield, Armstrong and Verity are all favourites of mine.
Incredibly tough to rate though.
