Yeah I'm not going to be a Criteria Nazi. If you want to pick Hick, Rawson, Davison, Penney or anyone else like that then you're free to. I'm not going to list players like that on the suggested players list, or vote for them myself, but if you don't think they'd look out of place in this side then go for it.

Vimes tells it how it is:
Andy Flower, Dave Houghton, Murray Goodwin
Somebody has to...
In fact, bugger it. I'll remove my vote for Johnson and vote for Colin Bland. He played the majority of his first class cricket for Rhodesia and it'd be a much classier middle order with Bland in the mix.
So, my votes are now:
When the next round's up, I'll probably forget that I didn't vote for Johnson. Again.

Flower, Houghton, Goodwin, Price.
ATG Test XI
1. J.B Hobbs 2. H. Sutcliffe 3. D.G Bradman 4. S.R Tendulkar 5. W.R Hammond 6. G.S Sobers 7. A.C Gilchrist 8. Richard Hadlee 9. M.D Marshall 10. S.K Warne 11. G.D McGrath
Flower, Houghton, Goodwin and Strang.
If we go with no eligibility requirements, then arguably you could end up with this:
Which seems to be taking the piss a bit, to be honest.
Fair point - but regardless you'd shift everyone up one and add a spinner in at 11 (Price/Strang) and be set.
Replace Procter with Johnson. Done.
I can't help but pick:
Goodwin, Houghton, Flower and Strang.
