    Domestic Giants

    name a player, who u think should have got more chances to represent his national team...who deserved more opportunities...please make it a name from your own country (no problem if its more than one, but they should be from your country and your domestic cricket)...for me, that name is utpal chatterjee (a left arm spinner and a very gutsy batsman, i saw him many times in eden gardens cos he represented my state in Ranji Trophy) if i remember correctly, he played 3 ODI matches for india in the early 90's, that's it...

    Rummaging through Iain O'Brien's dustbins.
    Peter (TPB) Smith. Never showed his best on his limited opportunities for England, but he was (supposedly, as I never saw him, obviously!) better than his England performances suggest.

    Mathew Sinclair.

    Peter Ingram
    Michael Mason
    Iain O'Brien (was dropped very quickly on his first opportunity)
    Neil Broom?
    Michael Papps?
    Greg Hay?

    By and large, we've picked the right batsmen over the past few years. Bowlers..well they're always injured so it's hard to tell, but there's a few around who have been unlucky not to get more opportunities. Michael Mason is the most hard done by player in New Zealand.

    Broom, Hay and Papps are hard ones for me. Broom looks like he will be getting another chance, but he was picked in the wrong format and given the wrong job first time around. Hay had well known technical issues and suffered a horror slump after he was ignored for the England tour, but considering we picked James Marshall ahead of him while he averaged mid forties for CD I think he can feel hard done by.

    Papps...well I don't think he would have made it, but he kept being picked to face Dale Steyn and was thrown out for ages solely because Brett Lee sconed him. He got some pretty harsh introductions.

    I don't think he would have enjoyed playing pure pace with his technique, but put him up against slower bowlers and he would have scored some runs.

    Graeme Aldridge probably more unlucky not to have got any chances whatsoever.

    Could pick any number of Australian batsman from the 1990's-early 00's, but always though that in particular 4 guys were really hard done by not to play any Test cricket/only have real limited opportunities.

    Jamie Cox, Dene Hills, Stuart Law, Martin Love.

    Lehmann and Bevan to a certain extent. Yeah they did play some test cricket and Bevan was one of the best ODI batsmen ever, but they should've done/played more in tests.
