    Who should NEVER or NEVER again play for their country and why?

    If you have a reason then all the better. However, just the person's name could be sufficient. I'd like to add a poll at one stage for something completely different.





















    PS Apologies for being under 6000 posts.

    James Franklin - was a good bowler and had potential in the early 2000s, but it was never realised and NZ has 2 very promising all rounders there now.

    Andy Ellis - he doesn't bat, doesn't bowl, and when he does bowl he chucks. I have never known what his role in the team is.

    Grant Elliot - he's actually performed well, but I think he'd be usurping spots that could be better used developing younger batsmen/the allrounders mentioned above.

    Anton Devcich - he won't be good enough. Certainly not at Test level, but just no.

    Any Lancastrian - especially spinners.

    If Lancastrians are a race, then it's clearly one where they were left on the starting line.

    I can only assume that that date I arranged for you with Gorgeous Gloria, the T-girl from Oswaldtwistle, didn't go as well as you had hoped
