    Fringe Aussie fringe Players who would excel in other teams..

    You've got to feel for some of the First class Australian Players out there who just happen to be playing in arguebly the greatest era of Australian Cricket.

    This is a list of Aussie International Fringe/First-class players who would probably be very successful cricketers in any other country.


    Stuart McGill ( the most obvious and talked about)

    Both Hussey brothers (both ave over 50 firstclass cricket+ completely dominate in Eng county cricket)

    Brett Lee (would have played around 60 tests by now for any other test team)

    Simon Katich (its been talked about a lot)

    Darren Leymann (At 34 has only played 27 tests- averages 56 in firstclass cricket..

    Andrew Symonds (Would be a handy test player for most countries)

    Martin Love -(6 tests only ave 47 + 1 century - ave over 50 in first class cricket)

    And so on and so on....

    I suppose the list is endless...

    Have I missed any obvious ones?

    I think we've probably "benefited" most from Oz cast-offs, although with the possible exceptions of Craig White (when fit) & Geraint Jones (potentially) none of 'em have been real test quality.

    We've also had Mullally, Gallian, McCague, The Hollioakes and may yet get Stu Law & Dimitri Mascarenhas.

    Gallian was meant to be the best Aussie batsmen for a long while at u19 level for them. Then he convets to us which must have ****ed them off and does crap!

    As for Brett Lee...i doubt he'd have 60 caps for other test teams if he kept averaging over 30 as he does atm.
    Symonds i dont think is a test player and would struggle to get into most test teams i reackon. Cant argue with the rest though.

    If lee was indian he'd have played 400 test matches and done 400,000 adverts
    Best batsman = Rahul Dravid
    Best bowler = Muttiah Muralitharan

    Yes, because MacGill and Lee's records are so fantastic, aren't they? And for your information, between his debut and 2003\04, Lee missed 2 Tests due to the team being (correctly) deemed stronger without him - so I hardly see that he'd have played any more for anyone else than he has for Australia.
    And personally I highly doubt Symonds would have been successful playing in England in the mid-90s (the only other country he could have played for) and I certainly don't think he'd have a hope in hell of doing well in Sri Lanka or India.
    Before this most recent Test, it was being realised that MacGill is nothing but an extremely ordinary bowler who wouldn't get anywhere near a decent Test-team. Sadly people now seem to have gone back to the "but for Warne he'd have played 100 Tests" rubbish.

    There's no way to say those players would excel in Test Cricket.

    eg the Hussey's - well, look at the names of those Englishmen that have dominated in the recent past, and look how poor their International records are.

    but it's the best indication marc... of course u can't say it for sure...

    I think McGill would excel... Bevan would excel... Bichel would excel... Michael Hussey would... Greg Blewett would.. Brett Lee would

    In spite of Bevan, Blewett and Lee's (and to an extent Bichel's) career records in Tests?

    I think David Hussey would go great in tests and one dayers, he's been in good form for around two years now.

    David Hussey, possibly - why the hell he's started his pro career as late as he has is completely beyond me.
