    Best Team Possible With....

    ....certain criteria

    I was thinking to day about the England team that played a Test match a number of years ago with 11 players that had scored a FC century.

    Then I was thinking about the best team possible for countries with 10 players with BOTH
    - a FC century
    and
    - min 50 FC wickets

    and a keeper with a FC score of 200 or more.

    FC 100 AND min 50 FC wickets

    South Africa
    1. Hall
    2. Zander de Bruyn
    3. Kallis
    4. Dale Benkenstein
    5. Kemp
    6. Jacobs
    7. Ontong
    8. Albie Morkel
    9. Pollock
    10. Johan van der Wath
    11. Boje

    Unlucky to miss out- Petersen, Van Wyk, Klusener

    England
    1. Trescothick
    2. Butcher
    3. Vaughan
    4. McGrath
    5. Pietersen
    6. Collingwood
    7. Flintoff
    8. Foster
    9. Cork
    10. Giles
    11. Gough

    What do other countries look like?

    What would a World XI look like if they all had to have a Test 100 AND 50 Test wickets, and a keeper with a Test double century? It would be a tough team to pick!

    Kallis
    Gilchrist
    Flintoff
    Klusener

    Batting struggling, Gayle will be available when he gets 1 more wicket

    As for a World XI with Test 100s and 50 Test wickets, I'll give it a shot (made annoying by Shahid Afridi's 47 Test wickets, and Chris Gayle's 49! )

    IIRC there's hardly anyone got a double whilst keeping in the same match.

    How about:

    Best team possible with no Test centuries and no Test five-fors.

    That's going to be difficult.

    Stuart Law and Andrew Symonds would both get gigs on first class records. Watson on faith maybe. It will be tough with current players.

    Is there a minimum matches limit?

    Sorry to disappoint you but Tendulkar has only 37 test wickets.

    You could replace him with Nathan Astle though or Ajit Agarkar

    Zimbabwe isn't too difficult because of the strength of the Logan Cup, though it would be a hell of a lot easier if Chigubura had five, Dabengwa seven and Matsikenyeri two more wickets, and I would have put them in because they are all currently available for Zim and I didn't want to use too many rebels.
