Presumably the team is selected on FC cricket performance rather than football; hence the omission of Bradley, Peter Bedford, John Scholes, etc. and the inclusion of, eg, Jewell and O'Donnell.
Fair point. If I could be arsed, I'd do the obverse side, the great footballers who incidentally played first class cricket.

Geoff Hurst scored three less for Essex in his only first class game than he did in England’s finest two hours. Dennis Compton would have been a dual international but for the war too.

As it stands, he is both an Ashes winner and an FA Cup winner.

You could have Gil Langley instead of Zoehrer as keeper.

On the baseball front, I'd loved to have seen Mickey Mantle play cricket. He was a true natural at bat and ball sports.
