    Also maybe you could pick Charles McCartney instead of of one of Morris or M Waugh. Top batsman, while giving a solid option as a left-arm spinner.
    M Waugh is the weakest link in the team and was picked only for his heroics against the West Indies in the 95 tour. McCartney could very well make a better choice.

    I think Central Districts has the best claim to him. And this is the association I think of the most when I think of him.

    Fleming also played a little bit more for Canterbury.

    Perhaps we can make a rule that some players can appear in the all time XIs for multiple provinces.
    We had him last tbh and yeah in terms of provinces players can show up for whoever they played for at anytime.

    Wow, very different batting lineup from my SA side, and a different keeper to boot. Bowling lineup is exactly the same though.

    Ha ye. Bradman is tricky one though given he was born & played very well for SA, but i guess we probably have to pick for NSW.

    Wood and Hughes had slightly more distinguished international careers than Moody and Rogers, but I would say that is more likely because of the time in which they played. Paulsen was in the side as the token spinner and I'm a huge fan of Reid, but Aldermann was better over a longer period. I have ammended my team to include McKenzie because I'd forgotten about him.

    Also, Hussey really should be at 4 IMO. Actually it's interesting that my team had no less than 4 openers in it (Rogers, Marsh, Langer and Hussey).

    I would say that Bradman could be picked for both sides really. SA's real difficult choice is who to pick as opener. There's quite a number of good but not great openers that they've had over the years, and separating them is quite difficult.

    I think Hookes and Lehmann both deserve a spot and Clem Hill is a must pick for this side. With Bradman included that leaves a number of players jostling for a couple of opening slots.

    Yardley would be far better option, very solid offspinner in the tests he played. Paulsen although probably solid domestically, never played a test.

    Sam Trimble the unluckies to miss out..
    Ron Oxenham could make a case for inclusion too as arguably the finest allrounder produced by QLD, although he was more a force at FC than Test level.

    World class side that. Close to Australia's best possible all time bowling attack too.
    Great side - in that team I reckon you'd swap Trumper and Morris in the batting order. Macartney, McCabe, Noble, Benaud and Turner would all have strong claims to be included too.

    Yeah, can you pick someone who has turned out for your side at all? Imran Khan would make the NSW side I would think

    There are no rules as this isn't a contest.

    As a guideline I would say that you should probably only pick players that would primarily identify with the state/province. So Bradman would be either SA or NSW as he spent a roughly equal amount of time with each.
