    Which International Team has the strongest tail?

    Test and ODI's

    I think that 8 pretty much qualifies as middle order? Unless the number 8 batsman is "a bit krap" that is .......so lets say positions 9, 10 and 11.

    Whose is the strongest, taking into consideration the 4 most used players in those spots

    Unfortunately, the presence of Martin ruins NZ's chance of being toprated.

    If, however, he wasn't picked, and we had a 9,10,11 of Franklin, Mills, Bond, that's not too shabby. All three with FC centuries and Franklin with a FC double ton.

    Toss up between SA and NZ for mine. Tail includes 8 and 9, for me, and as such the bottom four for this side will contribute more than most sides.

    Or if NZ played

    9. Vettori
    10. Franklin
    11. Mills

    Which is totally feasible with Bond acting the paper_man and Mills I think unlucky not to be playing the 2nd test

    Thats got to be the strongest

    agree they are probably the most stickable

    Although Vettori now appears to be at 8, since we're playing Oram at 6.

    Thast true ....although hopefully one day Oram can return to bowling full time which means he could bat at 7 and let NZ play an extra batsman. God knows they could use another specialist top order/opener.


    On another note SA currently have Nel batting at 9, and he has a test average of 7. Steyn I dont know about but Ntini is terrible.....just a wogging bunny really. And Boje aint that flash in fact I think hes well over rated. Average of around 24?

    I know Pollock is out atm but doesnt he sometimes bat 7 and mostly 8 anyway? Cant see why SA are rated as serious contenders. Happy to be educated though

    During the games vs. Aus, you'd have Pollock and Boje at 8 + 9 respectively, which is pretty handy.

    And they can play Hall, who averages a shade under 30.
