    Battle of the bits-and-pieces players

    This is my first attempt at starting one. They appear useless, but sometimes come useful in a match. Let's make the list. There may be some gems in these.
    1. James Hopes
    2. Shane Lee
    3. Ian Harvey
    4. Matthew Fleming
    5. Dougie Brown
    6. Ronnie Irani
    7. Adam Hollioake
    8. Dermot Reeve
    9. Dmitri Mascarenhas
    10. Abid Ali
    11. Roger Binny
    12. Andre Adams
    13. Azhar Mahmood
    14. Zander de Bruyn
    15. Justin Kemp
    16. Dilhara Lokuhettige
    17. Hashantha Fernando
    18. Gayan Wijekoon
    19. Dwayne Smith
    20. Darren Sammy
    21. Ryan Hinds
    More to come.

    Edit: Added a few

    Twenty20 used to be boring.

    Scott Styris maybe? I've always considered him a bits and pieces player

    Tell me what you know about Rod Latham. Harris was an under-rated bowler for New Zealand, while there are some who think Ealham was one who could have been one of England's greatest ODI bowlers.

    This thread is a JOKE. Roger Binny wasn't a bits and pieces player and its just sheer ignorance to call him one and compare him with the likes of Ronnie Irani.

    Arjun, you should stick to your 6 hitting posts.

    Andre Adams is an opening bowler, and the best one in NZ besides Shane Bond. Now thir best two bowlers are rotting away in India, well in Bracewell.

    Anyway, back on track:

    Shahid Afridi for sure
    Cullen Bailey

    edging back a bit, the king of them

    Something confuses me. The best bits and pieces player becomes an all rounder, no?
    The speed at which a fielding team gets through the innings is overrated.
