    There's no qualification (other than being from Zimbabwe). You can pick whomever you like.

    Yeah I'm not going to be a Criteria Nazi. If you want to pick Hick, Rawson, Davison, Penney or anyone else like that then you're free to. I'm not going to list players like that on the suggested players list, or vote for them myself, but if you don't think they'd look out of place in this side then go for it.

    In fact, bugger it. I'll remove my vote for Johnson and vote for Colin Bland. He played the majority of his first class cricket for Rhodesia and it'd be a much classier middle order with Bland in the mix.

    So, my votes are now:

    Flower, A
    Bland
    Houghton

    Price

    When the next round's up, I'll probably forget that I didn't vote for Johnson. Again.

    If we go with no eligibility requirements, then arguably you could end up with this:

    Flower (?)
    Goodwin
    Hick
    Houghton
    Flower +
    Bland
    Procter *
    Davison
    Curran
    Streak
    Rawson

    Which seems to be taking the piss a bit, to be honest.

    Procter wouldn't count. He was signed by Rhodesia as an overseas pro. Born and raised in SA, and had already made his intl debut before he signed with Rhodesia. Guys like Bland, Hick and Curran were individuals who grew up in Zimbabwe, were products of their system, and the only reason why they didn't play test cricket for Zim was due to the fact that Zimbabwe wasn't a test nation at the time.

    Fair point - but regardless you'd shift everyone up one and add a spinner in at 11 (Price/Strang) and be set.
