How good was Neil Fairbrother?
He was the glue to England's bating lineup in their bad times twenty years back. Things would have been really ugly without him.
Kind of like a cheaper version of Michael bevan.

Maregwede over Dabengwa?, you're not taking this seriously.

Yup, that was the choice. To accommodate what foreignfield is looking for, I could rotate Zim, Ban and SA players to have

Alester Maregwede --> Steve Palframan
Enamul Haque --> Keith Dabengwa
Richard Snell --> Talha Jubair

In any case, I nominate Pramodaya Wickramasinghe as captain. I love that name! :D

Yeah, Fairbrother was one of the first names I remember following in the English team after Hick. He was a difficult to dislodge customer from what I remember, but nothing flashy. I think the first player I really liked in their ODI line-up, who got them thinking differently for the limited over matches, was Nick Knight.
