This is assuming I can't have Border or Gilchrist as the majority of their careers were played elsewhere. I probably can't have Watson under the same rules but the QLD team above didn't claim him so I will.

Apologies to D.Warner, S.MacGill, S.Clark and R.Chee Quee, just couldn't squeeze you in.

Watson played most of his career for tassie. Played a few years for qld in between injuries. Then I don’t even remember him playing much for nsw

He did have 8 seasons at NSW and only 4 at Tassie. Granted he was playing for Aus for most of his NSW career but still.

For a side with 3 Australian Captains in it, it is a bit thin. Special mention to Colin Miller and Shane Watson as North island imports!

... oh, and Peter Siddle and Paul Reiffel!

Some handy bowlers to choose from there...
Cannot fit everyone in. Even Simon Davis stiff but for mine, Flemo and Pattinson true strike bowlers. Not even sure Flemo played too many 50 overs for Vics but the guy made the ball talk at higher level and a no brainer ahead of Siddle, Reiffel and Merv

Well said, or Coulter-Nile or the zillion others they had. Hand them the ******* title now. They would win the all time one for sure.
Queensland would give them a run for their money with Greg Chappell and Viv but still WA for mine.

Fair enough, but it is who came from Victoria, not who played the most for the state side. I think Paul Reiffel was a gun in the ODI format. I loved watching him play. Flemming was a wizard, and he knew it too.

Not sure Viv originated in QLD.

Shane Harwood should be ahead of Pattinson.
