Love how among the 4 votes for 3 batting spots 2 batsmen got all 4 and one 3 in the same order, while everyone selected a different pacer.....

We have a tie again, this time for the lead pacer. I will go for Turner over Haze. While his first class record in itself is quite good, Turner has a terrific first class record with almost close to 1000 wickets which cannot be completely ignored considering the era.

Now, please choose the final 3 players to fit the side.

IMO it can ideally be a tearaway pacer (since Turner is only medium fast) plus a pacer who can bat a bit plus a batsman who can bowl a bit (and also captain may be) but up to you to choose your 3 players.
