    Players Playing For Country They Are Born In?

    Dunno what the England team would look like,
    we can exclude india,pakistan and bangladesh and australian test team

    Which Team would be the best right now if players were only allowed to play for the country they were born in?

    i reckon south africa would be 2nd best after australia(kp,strauss-any more?)

    Australia
    South Africa
    Pakistan
    India
    the rest i have no idea but can bet england will be way down the list

    Englands odi team would be quite good too with symonds playing in it

    India and Paksitan would be the same. We don't get immigrants, instead we fill up other countries.

    We would be (i guess):

    AN Cook
    RWT Key
    IR Bell
    PD Collingwood
    A Flintoff
    A Symonds
    CMW Read+
    SCJ Broad
    MJ Hoggard
    SJ Harmison
    MS Panesar

    I guess we'd go S Jones (if we could have him) for Broad, Trescothick for Key and Vaughan for Bell/Symonds at full strength.

    ODIs

    IR Bell
    AN Cook
    A Symonds
    PD Collingwood
    A Flintoff
    RWT Key
    CMW Read+
    MH Yardy
    SCJ Broad
    SJ Harmison
    JM Anderson

    Tresco for Cook at full strength.

    EDIT: Dalymple was born in Nairobi...I guess Key can bat 6.

    Surely he's Welsh? But then isn't it the England and Wales Cricket Board? Fine lines.
