    Best Matting XI

    for a match played on a matting wicket rather than turf.

    don't have a full XI worked out yet, but for me the obvious inclusions would be:
    Herb Taylor
    Neil Harvey
    Fazal Mahmoud
    Sid Barnes

    Richie Benaud had a good record on matting wickets, I believe.

    Slasher Mackay was very good on the matting in Pakistan, claiming his best Test figures and helping the Aussies to a win. I think the WK should be a Sth Afr or Pakistan player, as they played the most on matting, and that will give you 11.

    No expert on Indian cricket, but I think he played on Matting early in his career, not sure if he played many Tests on matting though. Even still he was a great batsman, so it would not matter he would still score a bucket load.
