    Hollioake and Irani were 3D players. I know Butch bowled the occasional meds but come on now.

    Also, I reckon Justin Langer could have made a fair crack in ODIs for most countries. He was surplus to requirements for Australia though

    Langer could have played a hell of a lot more ODI cricket had he been a different nationality. Same for McGilla to a certain extent too

    I thought the thread was about players who never played ODI's, not one's that could have played more (sorry I just hate Langer)

    Langer was seen as pretty stodgy and unexpansive early in his career. Early on he played a few games batting down the order, never higher than #4.

    By the time his game developed at test level and he might have come into the team, MWaugh and Gilchrist were already established as openers, and when MWaugh retired Hayden took over. Langer was never going to push Ponting, Martyn, SWaugh, Hussey, Lehmann, Watson and Symonds out of the middle order. Even guys like Hodge were much better batsmen in ODI's who didn't get a solid run at things.

    Langers ODI strike rate, in its very limited sample size, is quite impressive for a pre '96 career.

    88

    Was very difficult to find, this. Some players who I never knew played ODIs it turns out played them for years. Simon Katich wore yellow 45 times it turns out. Oops.

    Even those who you might be sure have never got in have played a bit, I suppose there's just too many ODIs to not involve your test players at some point. Marcus North played 2 odis - and none of you know what matches they are

    Katich was actually a really good one day bat. Just a top lad allround actually. Hero.

    No Katich was too slow for his era. Only batsman to have a strike rate of under 100 in the 435 game (Dippenaar got out very cheaply that game). He was holding up the opening spot while Phil Jacques was literally averaging 100 at a run a ball in the ODD competition. Only got a game in the ODI side because he was Steve Waugh's good mate.

    Jacques is a player who well and truly should have played more ODIs for Australia. More tests too. Pity about his back injury.

    vs Pakistan in the UAE, right? If memory serves it was also around the same time as the weird Brett Geeves run that has spouted an incredible number of **** Fox Sports 'articles'

    EDIT:
    Just looked it up and nope, was Laughlin, not Geeves.

    I know he played a handful of ODIs but it is slightly strange how Justin Langer never got a lookin in ODIs.

    And don't give me the not comparing like with like bollocks because Butch was a perfectly serviceable bowler, and a bloody good guitarist
    Remember when England in the leadup to the 2003 WC were trying Irani as a No. 3 bat? Good grief.

    Laughlin a bit unlucky not to get a few more international opportunities, IMO. Particularly in T20.

    It is a hard one to think ones from an Australian perspective. I thought Bob Holland would count based on his matchwinning role in 1985 at Lords but even he played a couple of ODIs.

    Best example I can think of is another leg-spinner Peter Sleep who won the Sydney 1987 Test but never played an ODI.
