    Minnows

    I thought it would be interesting to make up a team of all the players from teams below Kenya. I certainly couldnt do it but Im sure there would be a few minnow experts among us.

    Dan Van Buunge from the netherlands..avgs only 19 in ODI's but has plenty of talent..made a crucial 62 in a world cup match..

    Talented young all-rounder already playing regularly for the VCC first team. Represented Holland at many age-group levels Including at the U15 World Cup in England, 1996 & on the U17 tour of England 1997. Was on stand-by for the International Youth Tournament(U19) in Bermuda 1997. Brother of Job & Coen who also play for VCC. Daan is the youngest and latest member of the Netherlands national squad, and shows much promise as an opening batsman Technically strong and sound, the 2003 World Cup should be a fantastic learning experience for Daan. Having spent the last three months playing in South Africa he should be well adjusted to the conditions. Has an excellent pair of hands in the slips.

    Bluefox, that's twelve players...

    My XI (not necessarily in batting order):

    John Davison - not really a Canadian, but who cares. Excellent performance in the ING Cup some days ago, plus a good World Cup. Canada's best batting and bowling average. Says it all, really.

    Frederik Klokker - Denmark. Huge talent with the bat, also a very good keeper.

    Zeeshan Ali - Norway. Yes, I do have a thing about him, but he is our best player, and Norway are unbeaten yet. So in the squad.

    RP Lefebvre - Netherlands. Solid allrounder.

    Craig Wright - Scotland. All-rounder, with excellent stats both in the National League (35 games, 22 with bat, 19 with ball, SR 29 with ball) and in the ICC Trophy (8 games, 28 with bat, 11 with ball, SR 16 with ball).

    AJ Burger - Namibia. OK World Cup, best Namibian stats.

    Amjad Khan - never plays for Denmark, because Kent wants him. That should tell enough about the young all-rounder.

    A Codrington - Canada. 6 wickets @ 21.50 at the World Cup, also SR at 25. Has to be said though, 4 of those wickets were Bangladeshi tailenders (Kapali, Rafique, Baisya, Mortaza). Bit uneconomical at times as well.

    Daan van Buunge - Netherlands (thanks deeps)

    Junior Kwebiha - Uganda. Dunno much about him, but averaged 52 with the bat in the ICC Trophy (OK, 2 not outs, but still) and took 11 wickets @ 15.

    Sřren Vestergaard - Denmark. Took 20 wickets in the last ICC Trophy. Total of 36 wickets @ 14.30. An experienced bowler of 31 who has been at Glamorgan and Warwickshire without much success there.

    Mainly selected on country stats.

    The guy's an opening bowler and pinch hitter

    I think Burton van Rooi has a reasonable claim (had a brilliant ICC Trophy but was overlooked for the Namibians in the World Cup). Does Gavin Hamilton count?

    Suppiah (ex-Exeter University ) plays/played for Somerset but hasn't done too much for them.

    Should have made de Leede captain and then their fans could sing 'follow de leede, leede' to the tune of a song whose name escapes me.

    De Leede cannot keep.

    Wickie-wise, your best bet is probably Namibian Morné Karg, who's no mean batsman either.

    I can't believe Klaas-Jan van Noortwijk and Feiko Kloppenburg (the Dutch Centurions against Namibia in the WC) haven't got mentions yet!

    There's also Scottish left-arm spinner Majid Haq who impressed in the NCL last year.

    Does Rahul McDravid count?

    LOL - I think he has already played for another team who was that? :saint:

    As Neil said, he is a very lively opening bowler and certainly knows how to handle his bat, Neil calling him a pinch hitter is semi true, in One Dayers we have tried him opening as a pinch hitter... but in the longer game he can certainly bat sensibly too, hit 77* ish last season as a new highest score

    At present unless Kent actually sign players, his probley our best All-Rounder at present possibley along with James Treadwell.

    I stand corrected. Klokker is the Danish keeper, of course (and a good one at that!).

    Anyway, my point was that Khan's so good that Kent doesn't want to give him away for internationals, so therefore he should be guaranteed a place in the team (although I believe his goal is to play Tests for England :P)
