some body can have a 'O' team ???
Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.
There'd be an argument to include "Tibby" Cotter or Richard Collinge in the bowling lineup too, though the bowlers you've got would do the job well.
So I take the alphabetical order as given in most stats sites for cricket.
I don't pretend to be an expert so I just universly use the second name element
The one excercise that has always stumped me is to have an alphabetical side starting from A to B to C...through to K in batting order !!
The condition is not to fudge the batting order. You cant, for example put I for Imran at number 9 unless all those who are above him deserve to bat above him. I wouldn't, for example put Healy at 8 above him.
Its tough also because IJK do not seem to have many great bowlers except Imran who has the problem above. You could make one of them a keeper but Knott probably ythe best option doesn't fit at number 11 !!
I have a side of sorts but it would be fun for people to try this.
Its so frustrating to have to leave out Bradman since he cant open, all rhe great H's (Hutton, Hammond, Hobbs, Headley) since they cant bat at 8, leave out the magnificient W's, the murali's and the Lillee's.

Boycott (going ok so far...)
Edrich (he played a proportion of his innings in the middle order)
Q... got nothing frankly
Other than that - sensational effort.
Statham shouldn't be at 8, and certainly not ahead of Trueman, other than that, I think they're all fair enough.
Bob Simpson was asked in the 1980s who he would most like to watch bat for an hour of all the men he'd ever seen play. His answer was as quick as it was unequivocal - Norm O'Neill.
