    The SCG XI from 1990 until now, plus other ground by ground teams

    After looking over some stats today, I was thinking about who would be in the first eleven for each ground, based on performance.

    Originally I was going to do a 'Ground of Origin' type of XI, using simply the players at their own home ground (i.e. Slater at SCG, Hayden at the Gabba, etc) but that would often turn out as simply being the best state/county/provincial side of the home ground in question.

    So, I'll start. For the purpose of this particular XI I focused on the time since 1990, but feel free to have your own criteria for the ground you choose.

    SCG XI
    1. MJ Slater - 555 @ 55.00
    2. ML Hayden - 892 @ 55.75
    3. RP Ponting - 1282 @ 75.41
    4. SR Tendulkar - 664 @ 221.33
    5. SR Waugh - 921 @ 48.47
    6. VVS Laxman - 481 @ 96.20
    7. AC Gilchrist+ - 730 @ 52.14
    8. SK Warne - 64 @ 28.12
    9. D Gough - 11 @ 21.18
    10. SCG MacGill - 53 @ 24.47
    11. GD McGrath - 50 @ 23.44
    12th: A Kumble - 20 @ 32.95

    Bit of a slim pickings there for the bowlers who aren't Australian, with very few playing more than 2 matches with any success.

    Picked batting firstly on centuries scored and then by average. Brian Lara scored a magnificent 277 here, but in his other 6 innings mustered 107 runs, not crossing 50 in any of those innings.
    Honourable mention to Mike Atherton, 263 runs from 2 tests @ 87.66.
    Justin Langer, Mark Waugh and Mark Taylor the only other batsmen to score more than 1 century here.

    Would be very interested to see a Lords XI and an Eden Gardens XI.

    I'd want Viv Richards in there on principle (433 runs at 61.85 including the fastest Test century in history). He'd replace Bravo.

    Edit: just seen the rules and I imagine you're basing it on performance since 1990. In which case, fair enough.

    I am surprised Hayden doesn't average more than Sidhu at Chepauk..
    We miss you, Fardin. :(. RIP.

    if we did Bangabandhu National Stadium, Dhaka. think home team players will struggle to fit in unlike other stadiums
    Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.

    thats so good. Crowey and Jonesy own the basin because of that partnership.
    Daniel Vettori is an absolute legend!

    Well, they don't use that any more, so the final Dhaka XI

    Nafees Iqbal 272 @ 54.4
    Hanif Mohammad 458 @ 65
    Ijaz Ahmed 211 @ 211
    Tendulkar 266 @ 266
    Inzamam 248 @ 248
    +Taibu 238 @ 238
    Razzaq 134 @ 134 & 4 wickets @ 18
    Friend 81 runs @ 81 & 7 wickets @ 8.14
    Vettori 23 @ 23 & 8 wickets @ 6.75
    Khan Mohammad 14 wickets @ 7.21
    Lawson 7 wickets @ 3.85

    Decent batting depth, anyway.
    once you think you're out they pull you back in

    I mean, before Harrisburg, it was highly improbable that what happened in Harrisburg could ever happen, but as soon as it did, the probability happened to go up to no less than 100 percent, so it was almost certain that it had happened.

    Lara only averages 78 at the ARG despite the 375 and 400? Surprising.
