I agree with Dave's evaluation of Binks completely and would have him in the post-war side. I never had the good fortune to see Wardle play but would certainly defer to Dave on that selection. Most of my elders speak of him as a true great.Who would you pick to be in each team. Players like Len Hutton who played before and after the war can only appear in one team.
My teams are;
Pre-ww2; Sutcliffe, Holmes, Hutton, Leyland, Mitchell, Rhodes (c), Hunter (D)(w), Hirst, Verity, Macaulay, Bowes.
Post-ww2; Boycott (c), Root, Lehman (D), Bairstow (J), Ballance, Blakey(w), Trueman, Gough, Old, Wardle, Hoggard.
I part Company with him on Boycott's opening partner. To prefer McGrath over Vaughan seems perverse. The issue of a third seamer to complement Trueman and Sidebottom is less clear cut. Hoggard is an excellent choice. My own preference would be for Chris Old.
For me: Dave's team; with Vaughan for McGrath and Old for Hoggard.
