Back in White

The good folks over at Holding Willey have been having some fun with an imaginary time machine... (as opposed to a real one? - Ed.)

Question was which three cricketers from history would you like to see playing in the present day?

I went for Bradman, Tich Freeman and Learie Constantine. See what others said here.

Reminds me of the old story about Bradman being interviewed on TV about ten years before he died. The interviewer asked him how he thought he'd fare in the modern era. Bradman considered for a minute and then suggested that he might just about average 50 with the bat. The commentator expressed some surprise at this admission, and wondered if this was because of the quality of the bowling. Bradman then pointed out that he was eighty years old.
