Where's Alan Mullally?

Test Match Special have drawn up a greatest-ever England one-day side.

The first thing that strikes you is that it's pretty crap. Many of today's international one-day sides would fancy their chances against this team, in our opinion. The second thing that you notice is that Alan Mullally's been omitted.

Is this some kind of mistake? Is this anti-left-handed prejudice? - something we're bitterly opposed to. Were the TMS team unsure how to spell his surname and consequently playing it safe?

Whatever the reason, it's an egregious error.

Seriously though, Derek Underwood's included - a great bowler, but one with only 32 one-day international wickets to his name. Also omitted are Nick Knight and Neil Fairbrother.

In a more enlightened cricketing nation, Knight and Fairbrother would have notched up hundreds of ODI appearances. Dermot Reeve would have captained, and Tuffers would have become a monster spinner.

FACT.
