Happy to call it there. Think most have voted for the middle order. Flexible middle order with Barrington and Hammond interchangeable between 3 and 4.
CRICKETWEB ENGLISH ALL TIME XI

Two slots left to fill. Likely to be bowlers....
Choose two of the following (or your own legitimate suggestions). I'll leave this open for a few days to allow discussion and changes of mind if needed...

Hedley Verity and John Snow.
Barnes in this match revealed himself once more as one of the most remarkable bowlers that this country has ever produced. He has a positively wonderful command of the leg break.... His great height makes it difficult for the batsman to follow the flight of the ball. He is useful on every kind of wicket, whereas few bowlers of his pace are able to bowl on a sticky wicket. - JACK HOBBS, 'My Cricket Memories' (1924)
Get the sense this is going to go every which way...
Jim Laker and Frank Tyson.
I thought about Tate to add some batting, but feel as though the attack really needs another fiery quick.
Verity + Larwood
Verity & Bedser
CricZo XI - Draft League
Season 1 M Hayden, G Gooch, R Dravid, W Hammond, K Pietersen, G Sobers, R Marsh (wk), R Benaud (c), D Steyn, W Hall, N Adcock
Season 2 J Hobbs, B Richards, D Boon, H Taylor, C Lloyd (c), A Stewart (wk), T Goddard, A Davidson, H Tayfield, C Ambrose, H Griffith

Jim Laker and Harold Larwood
And even tough I didn't vote for him I feel that Wilfred Rhodes should be on the short list
Laker over Verity because they already have a leg spinner opening the bolwing so some who will turn the other way.
