    Seniors Cricket Tour

    Had the TV on in the background just before and it mentioned Bernhard Langer shooting for a record on the seniors golf tour. I was thinking how boring would it be to watch seniors golf, but figured they must generate big audiences given the prizemoney and TV coverage.

    It got me thinking of Cricket, and I think T20 Seniors International Cricket would get heaps of worldwide attention (ok perhaps not all of the world unless we had something like spinplay for a few overs)

    Just say it was for over 40s and you had to have retired from the International game for 2 years.

    7 players over 40
    4 players over 50

    How would your countries XI look and would you follow the tournament closely if most of the big names played?


    For example:
    1 Michael Slater 40
    2 Geoff Marsh 51
    3 Mark Waugh 45
    4 Darren Lehmann 40
    5 Allan Border 55
    6 Ian Healy 46
    7 Greg Matthews 50
    8 Shane Warne 40
    9 Damien Fleming 40
    10 Dennis Lillee 61
    11 Glenn McGrath 40

    Realistically someone in the 50s should outdo Lillee, but it would be great to see him play.

    I'd imagine spinners would be a better choice then pace bowlers as they can keep playing past their 40's quite easily.

    Yeah that's why I ended up giving Greg Matthews a spot in the XI. He's popular and still doing well in Sydney Grade Cricket so he would be a great selection as a 50 plus guy.

    I made the rule of 4 over 50s so you wouldn't just have your whole team of 40 year olds who have recently retired.

    My team is probably a batsman short.

    Would enjoy watching this side, a real shame Goughy is not quite 40 yet though.

    Tail is a bit long and not all suited to twenty20 but some great characters in here:

    Graham Gooch 57
    Mike Atherton 42
    David Gower 53
    Robin Smith 47
    Mike Gatting 53
    Ian Botham 54
    Jack Russell 46
    Andy Caddick 41
    Devon Malcolm 47
    Angus Fraser 44
    Phil Tufnell 44

    This really makes me wish the West Indies were still awesome:

    Desmond Haynes 54
    Gordon Greenidge 59
    Brian Lara 41
    Viv Richards 58
    Richie Richardson 48
    Carl Hooper 43
    Ridley Jacobs 42
    Ian Bishop 42
    Michael Holding 56
    Curtly Ambrose 46
    Courtney Walsh 47

    Not really got any of the twenty20 style allrounder asides maybe Hooper but who cares when you could see these players again.

    I take it noone watched or paid attention to this?

    World Cricket Classic - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    SA Masters beat Bermuda before the WC which clearly didnt bode well for them. Watched the highlights when I lived in SA. Jack was, to put it kindly, round and smacked the **** out of the ball.

    I would try to find some place for Greame Hick in there...maybe instead of Gatting!

    It'd be pretty awesome, but doubt the big names will actually play.
