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)
Walcott. Just to en-drama things.

RIP Fardin Qayyumi and Craig Walsh - true icons of CricketWeb.
Indians can't bowl - Where has the rumour come from as I myself and many indian friends arwe competent fast bowlers ?
With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left

I guess my vote decides. And on the basis of an all pace attack, and the fact that he kept for (basically) his entire career, I'll go with Dujon. Walcott only kept in 15 of 44 matches. His batting is a massive bonus, but Dujon was no mug with the bat, and he is a proper keeper.
Select two openers from the following (or add your own legit suggestions)
Howezat had said that he withdrew his Dujon vote if it was tied, so unless you vote to tie it again I figured that Walcott has won the position.
Monk's game, Monk's call
marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!
Anyone want to join the Society?
Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.
RIP Craig Walsh (Craig) 1985-2012
Proudly supporting the #2 cricketer of all time.

I still haven't forgiven Desi Haynes for his behaviour when he took over the reins from Viv Richards at the end of the second Test in 1990, but I'll still give him this gig, and Reading lad Gordon Greenidge
