There's way more grey with wicket keepers. Have heard people call Jack Russell they best they've seen whilst others maintain Stewart was about as good at test level, for example. But almost 40 with the bat means he'll likely replace Waite by the time he retires.

Yeah keepers are pretty much the hardest thing to judge across eras. Nobody would pick Prior over Knott for instance but really when you are building g a side....

Jasprit Bumrah

A bowler too many for my liking as I messed up not realizing I already had Gubby Allen, but a really good side nonetheless. Very good opening pair, followed by a solid middle order almost all of whom can bowl match winning spells (only Pant cant bowl, really) and of course, guys who can bat well til #9 and two of the best fast bowlers ever at 10 and 11. The fast bowling has variety with Lohmann bowling accurate swing at medium pace, Bumrah and Miller to blast sides out, Allen and Foster to bowl intelligent fast medium seam and swing and of course Ben Stokes to break any partnership that were to form in those rare occassions. Laker is one of the greatest ever spinners and backed up by Shakib and Katich, who can both be match winners in right conditions with the ball, this attack has every base covered.
