    Twenty-over cricket can be “boring”. It has grown up. It takes concentration. It is no longer a game for the post-literate generation. They need the distractions, the loud music to disguise the boredom. They never warned you about that.

    Reckon the pace Bill O'Reilly bowled at would have made him a very tricky customer in ODI's.

    Yeah, could seriously bat. Do not let the low Test batting average fool you any more than you'd let the absurdly low Test bowling average fool you.

    Bradman probably wouldn't play with Miller as his captain.

    Great idea for a thread Monk. For what it's worth.....

    01. Jack Hobbs
    02. Frank Woolley
    03. Don Bradman
    04. Graeme Pollock
    05. Stan McCabe
    06. Keith Miller
    07. Mike Procter
    08. Alan Davidson
    09. Ray Lindwall
    10. Godfrey Evans
    11. Bill O'Reilly


    Here is a scorecard I quite like. It features a triple century scored by Frank Woolley in 1912 against Tasmania. Admittedly a triple century against Tasmania is never a big deal, but this one occured in 205minutes, or less than 2 sessions!

    Tasmania v Marylebone Cricket Club at Hobart, 26-29 Jan 1912

    Is Sobers not considered due to that one abomination of an ODI?

    Just checked - Sobers played a single ODI so he is disqualified under Monk's rule.

    Looks like he made a duck too - caught Talyor, bowled Old.

    Yeh, big loss! But he did play one ODI.

    He would've been the best of them all.

    Indeed. He would've been the most valuable player of them all. Hard-hitting no. 6 batsman who could be an excellent defensive option to bowl 10 and field like a panther.

    In this ATG scenario, if we forget Sober's one ODI, and include him, he provides massive variety in combo with Miller. You could open the batting with them (which would be ****ing awesome), and there's 20 of your 50 overs to be bowled sorted!


    - Garry Sobers
    - Keith Miller *
    - Don Bradman
    - Everton Weekes
    - Graeme Pollock
    - Frank Wooley
    - Neil Harvey
    - Les Ames +
    - Hedley Verity
    - Richie Benaud
    - Ray Lindwall

    Harvey, Weekes, Miller, Sobers, Lindwall and Benaud all very good fielders.

    Harvey, Weekes, Miller, Sobers, Lindwall and Benaud all very good fielders.
    Bradman was also an excellent fielder. I'll throw in some names that haven't been mentioned so far, Gilbert Jessop and Jack Gregory. Both were hard hitting strokeplayers, especially Jessop and are owners of the two fastest (in terms of time) test centuries. Both were also very useful bowlers, though Jessop never really shone at an international level, and Gregory only had a few good series. Jessop was also excellent at cover "the undisputed master of that position), and Gregory a fine slipper, having been compared to Wally Hammond.

    Both would be very exciting and useful ODI players, if they'd had the chance.
