I had a think about who I might invite round, from any era of cricket, for a Christmas meal.
Opted for Herbert Sutcliffe, Sachin Tendulkar and Sue Metcalfe.

I'd invite Mason Crane to Christmas dinner this year, that way I could be sure he couldn't get back to Australia in time for the boxing day test.

Otherwise certainly players from another era whose views, attitude and motivation for playing cricket I'd like to hear.

Lord Hawke, Herbert Sutcliffe, George Hirst to name but 3.

Fred, Boycs and Closey but then the diversity and inclusion police would frown at me so I'll let Bumble come and do the washing up
