    Lets make a fun XI out of players who are too skinny.

    Michael Vaughan
    Rahul Dravid
    Michael Clarke
    James Foster
    Stuart Broad
    Laxman Sivaramakrishnan
    Ishant Sharma
    Nathan Bracken

    Never been keen on this <insert random characteristic> XI material but a few skinny players who come to mind:
    Bruce Reid (left-arm seam)
    James Foster (wicketkeeper-batsman)
    Russel Arnold (left-handed opening batsman)

    Playing roles inserted for help for those who don't know if you really want a team-ish.

    Going to be a lot of bowlers I imagine, batsmen tending more towards the 'comfortably built.'

    Jon Agnew and Sikander Bakht come to mind.

    Not as straightforward as the Fat XI, that's for sure.

    Michael Vaughan, definitely. Always looked like a chicken when in skins with shorts over the top.

    I was going to do a really clever one based on names but got stuck at Graham Fowler.

    Skinny batsmen quite thin on the ground (ha, see what I did there?) tho, it must be said. Gower in his younger years always looked like he could do with a feed; especially when he was sharing a dressing room with such trenchermen as Gatting, Gooch, Lamb & Beefy.

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."

    Stephen Capon (one match for Kent) would also fit that bill. I only heard of him because he came from my home town, the only county cricketer to do so as far as I know.
