Moeen is a perfectly fine bowler FFS
In the converse, what's the worst team you can put together with batsmen averaging over 50 and bowlers under 25? (Spinners <30, wicketkeepers>30)
1. Charles Bannerman
2. Brendon Kurrupu
3. Charlie Davis
4. Ronnie Grieveson
5. Cotar Ramaswami
6. Moises Henriques
7. Matthew Wade
8. Neil McGarrell
9. Richard Johnson
10. Neil Mallender
11. Mfuneko Ngam
Moises picked as a specialist bat.
Pretty sure Albie Morkel has a Test batting average in the high 50s.
Under 50, over 25:
6. Lloyd (c)
7. Gilchrist (wk)
9. Harbhajan Singh
11. Shoaib Akhtar
Greatest Ever Test XI: JB Hobbs, L Hutton, DG Bradman (c), IVA Richards, BC Lara, GS Sobers, AC Gilchrist (wk), Imran Khan, RJ Hadlee, MD Marshall, SK Warne 12th man: M Muralitharan
Favorite XI: WG Grace, VT Trumper, IVA Richards, DCS Compton, FMM Worrell (c), AC Gilchrist (wk), CL Cairns, SK Warne, FS Trueman, SE Bond, T Richardson 12th man: H Larwood
"Neither of them will have an international cricket career past 2016."
Blocky on Martin Guptill and Ish Sodhi. 20/11/2014.
Below 40 batting, above 30 bowling, 35+ for spinners.
Pretty happy with this team, although Jonty Rhodes for Ranatunga might be a decent shout to improve the fielding.
