Let's talk about English batsmen post Hutton-Compton and pre Gower-Gooch, basically since the early to mid 50s till mid 70s. Even though we know a bit about stalwarts like the elegance of May, the drudgery of Barrington and Boycott, not to mention Dexter, Cowdrey, Amiss, Edrich, Graveney and more. I think too much (of my know-how at least) has come from standalone anecdotes, tidbits and stories. If this has been done before, ah well, who cares, let's have another go at it
Expecting some May love here from the slightly older English posters.
