    Jack Gregory- batting average between 25-40.

    Jack Gregory | Australia Cricket | Cricket Players and Officials | ESPN Cricinfo

    Gives me a very good third pace option. Underrated all-rounder who gives me some very handy batting at 7 and 8 with Benaud. Left hand batsman as well, to break up my totally right handed batting line up!


    1. Gordon Greenidge

    3. Ian Chappell
    4. Vijay Hazare
    5. Frank Worrell (5)
    6. AB DeVilliers
    7. Jack Gregory (3)

    Transvaal from 1890-1997 and Gauteng from '97 til present.

    Certainly wasn't Gauteng when Mitchell played, but Mitchell would be listed on Gauteng's famous player lists....

    In any case the precedent was set way back when Marcuss picked Graeme Pollock. Fair pick imo

    If you asked any Gauteng fan whether Bruce Mitchell played for them, they'd unquestionably say yes. Picking him is not so much a technicality as it is actually displaying an in-depth knowledge of the history of cricket. It should be fine IMO, especially given how broad the Presidential one became.

    The precedent was set, yeah so fair pick but still technically he didn't play for a team that starts with alphabet "G".

    Even if you look at Cricinfo or any other list of past winners of SA domestic winners it lists them as Transvaal before 1997 and Guateng afterwards and so did the name he wore on his cap/shirt.

    If i were to use this loophole in reverse, then it will open a further pandora's box as many cities/states have changed names more than 04/05 times plus been part of larger teams that were divided later or merged.
