    SA Rebel Tour players.

    How many players from the various rebel tour of South Africa, have repersented their counties again,

    I remember T Alderman playing for AUS, and Gooch for Eng.

    Also K Hughes might of played a ODI?

    Trevor Hohns became a selector for AUS

    Any other?

    I assumed a lot played domestic.

    There were many.

    Off the top of my head for England- Gatting, Jarvis, Larkins, Emburey and Foster

    IIRC, Ezra Moseley got a life ban but was able to return and played against England in 1990

    That would be great, can you also list who played for Aus again, and who played State. I recall one batsmen (Haysmen maybe) stay in SA and became a commentator.

    Thanks

    From the English tour in 1982, Gooch, Emburey & Willey were all immediately picked when their bans were over. John Lever also played again, albeit only for one test. And Larkins was picked about 5 years after the ban, ironically because of others going on the Gatting tour. IIRC other player who went in 1982 included Woolmer, Boycott, Humpage, Old, Hendrick & Knott. Maybe Underwood too. It sounds an impressive list, but most of them were virtually at the end of their test careers anyway.

    From the 1989 tour, as Goughy said, Gatting, Jarvis, Foster & Emburey (again) all played test cricket again. I think others who went included Broad, Robinson, Dilley & Maynard. The keeper may have been Bruce French. Maybe Kim Barnett went too. Again, most of the squad were either past it or never very good in the first place, and there any number of malcontents available after the fiascos that were English test cricket in the late 1980's. That's the only reason more of them didn't play again - you couldn't say that the MCC wholeheartedly endorsed Gleneagles.

    Going back to your original question, I think Maynard may have played a test or two afterwards as well.

    The other 1982 players were Amiss, Sidebottom (who played one test after the ban) and Les Taylor (who also, IIRC, played test cricket afterwards).

    The other players from 1989 were Athey, Wells (who played once in 1995), Ellison, Thomas, Cowdrey & David Graveney.

    1981/82 - England
    1982/83 - WI
    1983/84 - WI
    1985/86 - Aus
    1986/87 - Aus
    1989/90 - England

    I think that's it. The WI sides included some players who had been excellent or at least very good - Kallicheran, Rowe, Clarke, Croft, King, Julien, Bacchus, Murray, Stephenson - and the rest were makeweights. You can easily find the lineups on cricinfo / match & series archive / year / other matches. There was also an interesting piece in TWC about the WI tours and what happened to the players. It may well be available on cricinfo - possibly called "The Unforgiven".

    EDIT
    There was also a Sri lankan tour in November/December 1982

    By far the funniest is Monty Lynch who went on the rebel West Indian Tour in 1983/84 and was inexplicably chosen for England in the ODI series against the West Indies in 1988. He was over 30 and never anywhere near good enough to play for either country.

    There were times when I didn't think he was good enough to play for Surrey, who really weren't very good in the 1980's. Yes, I blinked at his name on the scoresheet when I looked up the tours earlier. As I did at those of Gooch, Emburey & Willey for a couple of the SA sides who played against WI on those tours. I don't quite get why they were allowed to play tests again so quickly if they played out there after the tour that got them banned for three years, but that's another matter I suppose.

    Here's the piece about the WI tours

    Naive in parts, but interesting nonetheless.

    Rackemann played again didn't he? I vaguely recall him saving a test against England in 1990/91.
