    Country X all time XI in alphabetical order

    Selecting an all time XI based on alphabetical order. This may have been done before but I am trying to kill time.

    For England off the top of my head

    Atherton
    Boycott
    Compton
    Dexter
    Grace
    Hammond
    Pietersen
    Russell
    Statham
    Trueman
    Verity

    Russell beats out Stewart as Statham would bat above him. Verity beats out Willis and Underwood for the final place. Dexter beats out Gower.

    I did this quickly, did I miss anyone?

    Any other goes for other countries?

    Had a go at starting from Hobbs + Hutton, sacrifices the middle order a bit but I reckon it's a well balanced outfit. Prior/Rhodes works well at 7/8

    Grace
    Hobbs
    Hutton
    Jackson
    Leyland
    Pietersen
    Prior
    Rhodes
    Statham
    Trueman
    Verity

    Lindwall
    Lillee
    McGrath
    O'Reilly

    I sadly had to leave out Miller to get the bowlers in, and it would have been too much of a cheat as well to bat Warne at 11.

    How about:

    Greenidge
    Haynes
    Headley
    Kanhai
    Lara
    Lloyd
    Marshall
    Murray
    Roberts
    Valentine
    Walsh

    Obviously you have to weaken the batting a fair bit to get some bowlers in, not to mention the absence of Sobers, but I still reckon that's a good side.

    One for South Africa - I decided that Amla's two innings as an opener trumped Goddard's one at no.4...

    Barlow
    Endean
    Faulkner
    Kallis
    Lindsay
    McMillan

    Not exactly what the OP suggests but this is my version of it. There aren't too many options for A surprisingly.

    Australia
    Boon
    Barnes
    Bradman
    Bardsley
    Border
    Bannerman
    Blackham+
    Benaud*
    Bollinger
    Clark
    Cotter

    Had a bash at a current world side

    Amla
    Cook
    De Villiers
    Kallis
    Jayawardene
    Pietersen
    Sangakkara
    Siddle
    Starc
    Steyn
    Swann

    Could easily have included Kohli/Pujara/Samuels in the middle order but can't find a way to work in Clarke or Chanders. Southee an option over Starc

    Would bat Jayawardene at 4 to be honest and Prior instead of Sangakkara at 7 surely?

    Indian AT team would be hard under these rules, when you consider SRT has to bat at 4.
