    After the 2003 WC Irani had to give up bowling due to injury - played solely as a batsman for the next four years and averaged north of 60 - if he'd never turned his arm over he might have been quite a cricketer

    Best example I can think of is another leg-spinner Peter Sleep who won the Sydney 1987 Test but never played an ODI.
    Chris Rogers is the best recent example, maybe the best since ODIs became a thing

    Sounda hardly did anything in one day cricket for South Australia pretty much ever, at times he was played mainly as a batsman and only bowled a couple of overs a game tops
    Allegedly banned

    There. Now shut up sledger.
    This is uncalled for. He's opened a thread for discussion and doesn't deserve to be told to shut up. Please refrain from this sort of aggressive posting in future.

    This always struck me as a bit odd, because by the time Herb was at the Redbacks he was a 50 over gun but couldn't hold a spot in a pretty frail batting lineup at Shield level. Bit of a shame, because at his peak he was one if not the best opening batsman in the country.

    His son Sam has a Vic rookie contract... as a right arm quick. Wouldn't have expected that.

    Elliott is quite tall, so his son might follow him in that and it would not be that surprising he becomes a fast bowler.

    Matthew Elliott was just a classic case of too many great players trying to get through a small door in the 90s/00s

    Wasn't a lot of opportunity with Mark Waugh, Gilchrist, Hayden holding up the spots. Same thing happened to Langer who would have been a great ODI player post-2000 but never got a game, he played his last ODI in 1997 before he was even that good.

    I always really liked Elliott and wanted him back in the test side in the early 2000s, perhaps more than Bevan. I thought his test best of 199 was really cool. Such a tragic number to get out on while still being the mark of an amazing innings

    I loved that 199 and Punters 127 was so classy too.

    Absolutely, a quality bat and a stalwart of probably the greatest era for QLD cricket

    Certainly, but his knee reconstruction really hurt him. He could have been a very good test match batsman.
