    Good Ashes players who never played ODIs

    Never understood why Mark Butcher never played in one day internationals to be honest.

    Early 2000s:

    Knight and Tresco were the openers.
    Nasser was captain. Vaughan was being groomed.
    Collingwood and Flintoff became a fixture.
    Stewart was the keeper.

    Fairbrother played till 99. Thorpe played till 2002. Strauss came by in 2003. KP in 2004.

    Vikram Solanki got 30 odd games in that period. Probably the only one over whom Butcher could have been considered, but they were picked for different roles.

    More to the point both Adam Hollioake and Ronnie Irani played more than 30 ODIs over Butch's career and weren't remotely as good

    And don't give me the not comparing like with like bollocks because Butch was a perfectly serviceable bowler, and a bloody good guitarist

    Er, Solanki never played Ashes cricket. Way to show how much of a cricketing n00b you are.

    He really was a handy bowler actually. This was a very underrated aspect of his game.

    Don Bradman was a decent Ashes player, not one ODI.

    Mentioning Bradman in the same sentence as ODI is the sort of thing an enemy of cricket would say.

    What do you think Bradmans stats in ODI would have been? And would he have opened or batted at 3?

    Pucovski isn't ready yet imo, wouldn't want to throw him in the deep end of an Ashes series and risk him completely Hameeding

    Wasn't there a time when we put promising batsmen in at maybe 5, probably 6 and maybe even 7 rather than throwing them constantly in the deep end like they do these days?

    This definitely always used to seem to be the strategy across nations. England did similarly. Always quite favoured the idea of having promising young batters starting off at 5. Ideal position for a new player imo. Within reason.
