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
- Jack Hobbs
- Len Hutton
- Wally Hammond
- Ken Barrington
- Dennis Compton
- Ian Botham

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.
Len Hutton - Jack Hobbs - Ted Dexter - David Gower - Walter Hammond - Frank Woolley - Ian Botham - Alan Knott - Hedley Verity - John Snow - Fred Trueman
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
Season 3 H Sutcliffe, M Hayden, I Chappell (c), G Pollock, A Faulkner, M Hussey, D Lindsay (wk), I Botham, A Kumble, M Marshall, D Lillee
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.
