Players in form? (4)


I believe the answer is:


I believe this clue is a double definition.

'players' is the first definition.
(I've seen this before)

'form' is the second definition.
(cast is a kind of form)

'in' acts as a link.

(Other definitions for cast that I've seen before include "protection from injury" , "Throw a fishing line" , "characters together" , "Discard; actors (in play)" , "Throw out line for fish" .)

I've seen this clue in The Times and The Telegraph.
