In my opinion it should be either Bristow or Lowe. It depends on who you think was better of these two. I think Bristow would cope with today players and the pressure on the tour better.

That is a very valid point, John Lowe was always the consummate professional.

pretty sure Bristow would have cut it too

Of all those listed, if they were all playing now at least 3 of them would be broke with all the DRA fines they would have to pay out - Bristow, Wilson and Evans.

Playing at their prime though I would give Bristow, Lowe and Evans chances against players today.
