    One Cap wonders...

    People who were given a chance and youd like to see them come back.... (I did this thread so i could personally talk about Sidebottom)

    Personally, and with a fair amount of bias, Id like too see Ryan Siebottom get a call up, maybe just to the limited overs team. Has a fantastic economy rate, will take a lot of maidens, Plays with more passion than any other cricketer I have ever seen, and of course, has great hair

    Blackwell?

    Kidding, kidding.

    Ryan's old man Arnie is a member of the one-cap wonder club too. We genrally tend to have a longer look than just the one game now (unless they're replacement selections like Backwell & Shah were), so I would imagine OCWs will become something of a dying breed.

    Shah might add to his one cap, I sincerely hope Blackwell doesn't.

    Hopefully this guy will make something of himself yet.

I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    It certainly seems strange to me that with a first class record like he has, he's basically been picked as a specialist batsmen. His record indicates that he's a bowling allrounder, but in his test debut Marlon Samuels bowled significantly more overs than him. In his ODI debut, he was named at #9 but then didn't bat, and then watched in the field as Wavell Hinds, Ryan Powell, Ramnaresh Sarwan and eventually even Brian Lara bowled before him.
