10 oldest surviving England test cricketers
Cricinfo has a list of the oldest surviving test cricketers. I have extracted this list of the 10 oldest England players and their dates of birth from it.
I can remember Tom Graveney (shown above in 1951) playing for England in the late Sixties at the end of his test career. Another fascinating name in the list is Bob Appleyard, about whom I must write more one day.
