If the rules were a little different to allow FR Foster a pace attack of Foster, Voce and Clark would be v good. Even better when rounded out by any 2 of the great left arm spinners Eng have produced.

Regard Nobby Clark, too small a sample size. Seems he had a weak temperament, or maybe was just another good bowler screwed over by the English establishment. Not against him replacing Sidebottom though.

You don't allow Bradman to average 100. He averages 100 because nobody can control his scoring - Coronis at his eloquent best

Gary Gilmour for Bruce Reid. Neither have great records but Gilmour is more gifted and more likely to survive leprosy.

Couldn't quite squeeze Hayden in either. Tbh, I'm not his biggest fan, but I'm a massive fan of Bill Lawry, and I've met Arthur Morris twice, and he's one of the greatest guys ever.
I can't imagine Hayden wandering down the track to belt Hall, Griffith, or Trueman over long-on and long-off. Also, repeatedly sweeping Kumble and Harbie over square-leg is one thing, but combating Bedi, Chandra, and Prasanna is another. In comparison to Lawry, Hayden's runs were easier. And when he did face a decent English bowling attack in 2005 he failed in 4 out of 5 Tests.
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)
