    I'm going to try and be a bit imaginative with the rest of my side and have three in mind already - will be interesting to see if I get them all. First up and most likely to be taken by someone else is the man who is arguably the greatest fielder ever, and the unexpected run out is a useful possibility in teams like this. And don't underrate his batting either - he averaged 49 in Tests and if, as seems essential on CW these days, you disregard performances against minnows, it rises to 57!

    What style of batsman was Colin Bland? He seems pretty attacking, but did his runs come square of the wicket, or did he hit straight? Did he bludgeon the ball, or go for finesse and placement?

    Good question - I did write this feature about him, but didn't really touch on that!
