    In Charge of a New Country

    Someone else has already started this thread but I can't find it. Essentially you are in charge of a new cricket playing country and you are allowed to recruit players from the test playing nations on the proviso that the players must be above 26 years of age, currently active and have NOT played Test/ODI/T20 cricket.

    My Team:
    Michael Klinger
    NIck Jewell
    Amol Muzmudar (c)
    George Bailey
    Yashpal Singh
    Dominic Thornely
    Chris Hartley +
    Damien Wright
    Rajesh Pawar
    Ranadeb Bose
    Steve Magoffin

    Subs:
    Siddharth Trivedi
    Gagandeep Singh

    Only know the domestic quality from Australia and India so didn't include any other countries reps. Seems like a pretty experienced side which could be a very handy for an up-coming intl side

    If this can go to the right thread (which I can't locate) that would be great

    Think it was deleted, as i followed the link and it said it wasn't valid.
    I started building a team, had a couple you had such as Hartley, Klinger, Singh but then gave up when I noticed the thread was gone.

    Imran Tahir would be my first pick but it is certainly a tough one, especially with the age requirement and the ODI restriction, rules out a lot of decent pro's that never made it to test level.

    Bowling looks good but batting missing something. A lot tougher than I thought.

    Proudly supporting the #2 cricketer of all time.

    There are far better options than Lamb, never even made it at county level.

    Finding players of enough quality that fit the criteria's proving particularly difficult. I've been able to think of players under 26 yet to play international cricket, likewise those over 26 and without a test appearance but with representation in ODIs and T20. Would definitely add David Sales to the side in the initial post but aside from him I'm struggling for additions.

    Chris Swan, Brad Knowles, Michael Hogan and Mark Cameron would all be decent options with the ball.

    With the bat you've also got Lee Carseldine and Ed Cowan as probably the best 2 Australian options not already mentioned.

    R Vinay Kumar, topping Indian domestic bowling for 2 years and quite good for five, just turned 26. Given India's desperation over a seaming all-rounder, it's a surprise that Rajat Bhatia qualifies as well. That's my 2 cents.

    Ranadeb Bose could be a decent pick as well...

    Athlai doesn't lie. And he doesn't do sarcasm either, so you know it's true!

    I once heard that Ranadeb Bose's effort ball was something like 118kph.
