This is one I did a while back - highest scoring Scrabble team (tests only). Has to be a real team with bowlers, bats, keeper etc.

Australia only.

1. Jaques - 22
2. Jackson - 20
3. Khajawa - 24
4. Kippax - 21
5. Fairfax - 20
6. Chipperfield - 25
7. Blackham - 21
8. McKenzie - 25
9. Kasprowicz - 30
10. McCormick - 23
11. Fleetwood-Smith - 26

Maybe to update it today, Krejza gets in (if we play 2 spinners), Hazlewood, maybe Henriques? Haven't worked out Labuschagne. (needs 'j's, 'z's, 'x's, & 'q's).

An England team could be fun.

As for all-time international - away you go:D.

The Australian All Rounder XI:

1. Shane Watson
2. Bob Cowper
3. Jack Ryder
4. Allan Border
5. Steven Waugh
6. Keith Miller
7. Matthew Wade (Need a keeper haha, thought he'd be the most appropriate)
8. Richie Benaud
9. Alan Davidson
10. Ray Lindwall
11. Brad Hogg

Border is very iffy but he bowled those nice little left arm tweakers. I wanted to get the 4 different varieties of spin in there, hence the Hogg selection. A worldwide one would be interesting.

Ahead of any of those players, assuming it was Tests? Nah. George Giffin was another I thought of.
I'd just define him more of an all rounder than some in that top 7. I mean Mark Waugh bowled 6 overs a test on average compared to 13 for Symonds.
