    The Yorkshire All Time XI is also immensely strong when one considers that England has 18 domestic teams. Plenty of very big names...

    Herbert Sutcliffe
    Geoff Boycott
    Len Hutton*
    Maurice Leyland
    Darren Lehmann/Stanley Jackson
    George Hirst
    Wilfred Rhodes
    Jonny Bairstow+
    Hedley Verity
    Fred Trueman
    George Freeman/Bill Bowes
    THE ULTIMATE CRICKET WEB ARCADE EGGS CHAMPION

    RIP Craig Walsh (AKA "Craig"), 1985-2012

    Tendulkar would only merit consideration if team selection was based on calibre of batsmen rather than performances for, and form while at, the county.

    I know he was only 17 at the time he played for Yorkshire but his performances really were not ATG material - 1 century in 25 innings with an average in the mid 40s.

    Bairstow the best keeper in Yorkshire's long history? He sticks out a bit.

    One department that they're not overly strong in - Jimmy Binks, Don Brennan, Arthir Wood, Arthur Dolphin and David Hunter are five that spring to mind, but imo Bairstow isn't a bad call

    Thanks mate. I was just curious, only name I know is Arthur Dolphin and that's only due to the 'cod you do better' thread.

    Best QUEENSLAND Side

    1.Sam Trimble
    2.Bill Brown
    3.Stuart Law
    4.Ken Mackay
    5.Peter Burge
    6.Greg Richie
    7.Wally Grout[keeper]
    8.Tom Veivers
    9.Carl Rackeman
    10.Craig McDermott
    11.Geoff Dymock
    12.Phillip Carlson.[12th man]
    I went for the "best" homegrown side.All Qlders....No Botham Surti,Richards,Chappell,Border or Thompson.All these players played Tests.Sam Trimble even was Captain of a Second eleven that toured NZ.It was adifficult side to select
    .Even though most players had test caps,Qld never won "the Sheffield Shield" but their players performed magically at times in some superhuman feats of our game.I selected Grout over Healy because he[grout] was A Tallon Protege
    and did more "first" in the game. eg 6 dissmissals in a match
    It,s strange really with talent like that available it took us until about 1995 to win the Shield

    Hayden is several thousand runs better than Greg Ritchie who resembled a beach ball. Bill Brown could easily slot into the vacant No.6 spot because he occasionally batted down the order for Australia, and then Hayden can blast away at the top of the order. Unless he's facing Hoggard; then he'll have to take it easy.

    I'm far from Hayden's biggest fan, but he's surely the greatest opener Qld have produced?

    103 tests for an avg of 50.

    And 295 FC games at an avg of 52. Great servant of his state, as they say...

    You'd have to have him over Trimble? And certainly over Greg Ritchie?

    I'm far from knowledgable on Qld cricket, but if we're leaving out imports, I'd probably look at...


    Matthew Hayden
    Bill Brown
    Martin Love
    Peter Burge
    Stuart Law
    Andrew Symonds
    Ian Healy/Wally Grout (either)
    Tom Veivers
    Michael Kasprowiczcxjkczx
    Craig McDermott
    Geoff Dymock
