    Doing a Bit Of Research...

    And I thought I'd cheat. I've been compiling various state "rep" sides (for lack of a better phrase), and I wondered if anyone knew, off the top of their head or otherwise, of any players that were born in Australia and currently play first class cricket, but do not participate in the Pura or ING Cups.

    Ian Harvey, Scott Styris, Stuart Law and Mathew Sinclair spring to mind immediately, but I cant think of any others. Any help would be appreciated.

    I think Aaron Redmond was born in Aussie, but his profile on NZCricket is a bit confusing.

    Jason Gallian (Notts) & Tim Ambrose (Sussex) for definite and if you include Scotland's Intercontinental games (which I think have FC status) there's Paul Hoffman too.

    "The committee discussed the issue of illegal bowling actions, and believed that there are a number of bowlers currently employing suspect actions in international cricket, and that the ICC's reporting and testing procedures are not adequately scrutinising these bowlers."
    - Even the ICC's own official press release thinks things must change

    Not been at Lancs since 2001. He's 37 now, too. I'm guessing he's not quite current.

    Callum Thorp at Durham seems to have settled in England for the forseeable future since he doesn't qualify as an overseas player and han't played in aus since 2004.
