With strategies like that you could have been list manager at Carlton for about ten years
Bashar, like Carlton players over many years, makes you wonder how good he would've been with a good team around him.

Ashraful feels more like you wonder how he would've gone with the right mindset and coaching.

I’ll continue building my batting lineup, and I’ll take a player who’s own cricinfo profile says “why he didn’t score more runs in tests is a mystery.” Currently he’ll open my batting and take up residency in the commentary box post dismissal, I’ll take Ramiz Raja - Pakistan, with his average of 32 with the stick

That's fine. The requirement is that they have to have a ten run gap at least, IF they have more than ten wickets. The wickets is a secondary thing.
fu** need to find him again

i got a shortlist of players with some real obscure names I hope

don't think butcher counts averages within 10 bowling and batting. 34 with bat 36 with ball

I got a player knocked back for similar
I budged on Masakadza thinking it was BS. Not budging on this one.


That is not a bowler's a-hole. 30 innings worth of bowling in 122 innings in the field and disqualified because he fluked a 4fa against Zimbabwe. He took wickets in only 7 innings. 7 out of 122.

The rules need to change.

Fine, whatever, you can have him even though no-one else has a problem fitting in the rules. I remembered Butcher from his county days as a good bowler who didn't do it that often because of the effect it had on his body, which is pretty clear on his FC record, but he's all yours.

there’s already been a mediocre South African spinner taken, and I’ll top that by going for a mediocre spinner who was more then handy with the stick in Pat Symcox, with his average of 28.5 with the stick and 43 with the ball
