I'll take Eldine Baptiste, just scraped in with ten tests, would have played a lot more if not for the endless production line of big scary quicks

Bowl 35.18
Bat 23.30

Sikandar Raza

34.6 with the bat and 41.8 with the ball was a late starter imagine if had of played earlier or focused on cricket over study

Mansur Ali Khan Pataudi, the nawab. - India

The last Nawab of Pataudi is my selection, captain of India at the age of 21 and regarded as one of their best captains ever. Most certainly my selection as Captain. First half of his career averaged over 50 before a long decline saw that fall some way.

Bat ave: 34.91.
Centuries: 6
HS: 203*
Bowling ave: 88.00

Hamilton Masakadza - Zimbabwe

Bat ave: 30.04
Centuries: 5
HS: 158

Bowling ave: 30.56
wickets: 16

Picked him as I don't think 16 wickets over 17 years and 38 matches makes a top order player an all rounder.
surely that dont count.

his bowling ave is sub 35.

he hasn't 'fluked' a few wickets. it's half a wicket per match.

if it counts mate, ya got lucky.

My instinct was also to say that Masakadza is too good of a bowler to count - he didn't bowl a lot, but he was clearly pretty decent at it in both FC and limited overs. But I didn't want to be too authoritarian - are people generally agreed that Masakadza's record precludes him from being chosen?

how do you pick a keeper most byes conceaded
If you're struggling, many of the names in this thread qualify as mediocre with the gloves and not having a batting average over 35:


And perhaps also http://www.cricketweb.net/forum/cricket-chat/23675-worst-wk-terms-wk-skills.html

There are a couple of others who aren't in that thread, like Mushy Rahim, who are also pretty ordinary with the gloves.

Basically, as long as they are mediocre or worse at both, they qualify.
