    Richards & Mitchell.

    Mitchell's tally of 42 tests over 20 years sounds meagre, but he actually played every one of the (then) Springboks' tests from debut to untimely dropping.

    Nowadays it's a fair guess he'd have nigh on 200 tests to his name.

    Barry Richards and Graeme Smith.
    Also, Bruce Mitchell's bowling record kinda shows that literally anybody could have a good bowling record during that period.

    An explanation please. I was lucky enough to see Barlow's century at The Gabba in '63. As fine a knock as I have ever seen.Totally belligerent and in command of the Aussie bowling attack.Three things stand out in my mind from that match.
    1. Barlows Hundred
    2. Booths 160 odd
    3. Benauds "five for" in the second SA innings

    And here is the scorecard from that Brisbane Test;
    1st Test: Australia v South Africa at Brisbane, Dec 6-11, 1963 | Cricket Scorecard | ESPN Cricinfo

    And here is the Lord's scorecard from that 'Simmed' series. Barlow scored 119 against Snow, Ward, Shuttleworth, Underwood, and Illingworth;
    England v Rest of the World XI at Lord's, Jun 17-22, 1970 | Cricket Scorecard | ESPN Cricinfo

    Edgar Barlow was pretty close to being Barry Richard's partner for my ATG RSA team because he was also a great slips-fielder and handy 5th bowler/partnership breaker, besides being a highly competent batsman.

    However, if you check out the bowlers he faced then it is obvious that he was lucky enough to play inbetween the eras of Davidson and Lillee, Hall and Roberts. He also missed out on playing against Trueman, and Snow or Willis in a real Series. No disrepect to Graham McKenzie (dismissed Barlow the most times - 8) but he not quite in the same class as any of those fast bowlers.

    I'm pretty sure that in the side we pick Barlow will struggle to get a bowl, he would be behind Kallis and as such be the 6th or maybe 7th bowler, depending on how many allrounders are picked.

    I'm a great fan of Eddie Barlow and was tempted to pick him rather than the bloke I did eventually decide should partner Barry Richards, but this is an excellent point. As a minimum Kallis, Procter and Sean Pollock are going to be selected and, unless Eddie is skipper or just refuses to give the ball back until he gets a bowl, theyre all going to bowl before him

    Overall I suspect there is going to be a greater degree of agreement on this side than the others, by a comfortable margin
