    Player You'd Like To See Play More Cricket

    Not everyone's favourite player gets picked for their respective international teams, so who would you like to see represent their country more often?

    Criteria:

    *Must of already played international cricket
    *Please state what mode of cricket
    *Please state why

    Shahid Afridi: I was just looking through his stats and he is quite good in the Test arena. His average is 5 runs better than Flintoff, but his bowling is negated in the tes arena similar to that of Collingwood's. Add to the fact that he can play a Gilchrist type role, he is quite dangerous. I don't know too much about the regulars in the Pakistani team, but it would be interesting to see who could make way for him. Only 26 tests.

    JJ van der Wath: he's only played in two series IIRC; CB series in Aus and the 434 series in SA. Could be another Klusener for SA and definetly warrants another shot.

    Sajid Mahmood: flame me, but I think he should at least get a prolonged run in the test team. I think he provides more attacking options than Plunkett and Anderson

    Its a bit hard to establish in my criteria, but I think the nomination of RTD is void consdiering that he has (since his eligibility to play for Holland) and will play all their games unless Essex gets in the way. If that makes sense.

    Indeed, however I'd like to see more of them playing, regardless of the level. As in actually seeing/watching it, although I acknowledge that's not what you're asking for here.
