    Really Obscure Elevens

    This is the place to put into reality all your misguided team-picking skills.

    I'll start with the Bearded XI.

    1. Graham Gooch
    2. Saeed Anwar
    3. Viv Richards
    4. Inzamam-ul-haq
    5. Allan Border
    6. Gary Sobers
    7. Ian Botham
    8. Jack Blackham (edit) (keeper)
    9. Jason Gillespie
    10. Bishen Bedi (captain)
    11. Bhagwat Chandrasekhar

    This seems to be based on the glory of their cricket rather than the beards

    Hear hear! The bearded 11 should be a side with the 11 greatest beards to ever grace a cricket field, not the 11 greatest cricketers who happened to have a beard! For shame!

    Every one should first name their favourite beards (not more than five each) and then we will try to make an eleven out of them.

    Here is my selection

    1. WG (captain)
    2. Bonner (easily the best kept beard)
    3. Anwar
    4. Amla

    Not without Amla.
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    Anyone want to join the Society?

    Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.

    Its funny but in India we have a hair oil called Amla (after olive which is Amla in hindi). I am sure some creative adman could use Hashim (and his beard) for promoting Amla Hair Oil

    Anyone else up for a randomly themed XI?

    How about expatriates? Or six letters in a surname?

    Cairns would have been in there had he not shaven his beard off recently.

    Some Obscure Elevens that can be tried. I dont want to pre-empt for this can be a very creative excercise

    1. Cricketers whose names remind you of food.

    2. Cricketers from different professions (Barbers, Carpenters, Taylors, Sargeants, Bishops and an assortment of Smiths)

    3. One test wonders ! There are some fascinating performances in solitary appearances.

    4. Heavyweight XI From WG to Colin Milburn there have been some exciting players who have looked ...er... athleticaly-challenged though finding the bowlers , of the quicker variety is slightly taxing

    5. The Obnoxious XI Some cricketers are simply too much for even the most tolerant to put up with. I am sure every one has their 'favourites'

    Clarke and Langer obnoxious? What are you smoking?
    'Copperfield,' said Mr. Micawber, 'farewell! Every happiness and prosperity! If, in the progress of revolving years, I could persuade myself that my blighted destiny had been a warning to you, I should feel that I had not occupied another man's place in existence altogether in vain.
