    This is with current first class cricketers right?

    I'll take a punt on a limited overs Kiwi one, except I'm also using players that aren't yet qualified :
    1. BJ Watling
    2. PJ Ingram
    3. KS Williamson [Tests: BMK Patton - move Williamson to 5]
    4. JG Myburgh
    5. RJ Nicol
    6. SL Stewart [Tests: Replace with Nicol]
    7. *+ CFK van Wyk
    8. LJ Woodcock [Tests: TS Nethula - bat @ 10 and move the others up]
    9. N Wagner
    10. BJ Arnel
    11. LJ Shaw

    Other squad members:
    Seam - TA Boult, MJ McClenaghan ()
    Spin - BP Martin
    Bat - AK Kitchen, GR Hay
    All-round - C de Grandhomme

    I'd rather have Reece Young over van Wyk, but I dunno who would captain
    de Grandhomme could fit in as an all-rounder for limited overs, otherwise Myburgh and Williamson would be the 5/6th bowlers.

    I'm not really sure who to have as 3rd seamer or no. 5 bat - Boult, McClenaghan and Kitchen are still unknown quantities.

    Yeah I know, I did mention it and it's easier with them. Plus van Wyk helps the balance cause I'd need to find a captain

    Bit light on the pace bowlers isn't it? Like the team though, could see it giving our full team a bit of a go.

    The speed at which a fielding team gets through the innings is overrated.

    An England test side could look something like:

    Jimmy Adams
    Michael Carberry
    James Taylor
    Mark Pettini *
    John Bairstow
    Robin Martin-Jenkins
    Jonathan Batty +
    Chris Woakes
    James Tredwell
    Mark Davies
    Steve Finn

    That was difficult. Virtually every player in the country appears to have played an ODI at some point! Keepers especially. I was assuming I could use Pothas, but I didn't realise he's played ODIs for SA.

    Indeed, I came across a similar problem, tbh. Pretty much everyone half decent has at least had some ODIs or a T20 under their belt. Sunny Sohal and Thaker were picked purely statistically and I have not heard too much about either of them, itbt.

    Your team looks pretty solid though.
