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.

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...

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

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.
