    Best XI with no century or 5w haul to their name

    If this is Misbah-ul-Haq's last ODI, then he'll finish with a pretty decent record without ever scoring a ton.

    So, what's the best Test and ODI line up where none of the players has scored a ton and for the bowlers, none of them have taken a 5 wicket haul?

    I'll have a play around and see what I come up with, but who would you nominate?

    Imran Khan wac. Managed to just avoid selection in the ODI team by scoring a 102 and taking 1 5-fer.

    Cheetan Chauhan. Does that guy still hold the record for most Test runs without a century?

    Chetan Sharma | Cricket Players and Officials | ESPN Cricinfo

    Chetan Sharma - he was the Ajit Agarkar (I have never watched Ajit btw but have heard his legend) of the 1980s for India.

    Barely International Standard bowler but he was reliable and never ever did a Hamish Bennett by breaking down on you when needed the most,
    1) Ross is Boss.
    2) See point 1.

    Leading the charge against nuances being used in posts.

    Overrated XI M Bracewell, Burns, Rahane, Don Voges, Bairstow, Alecz Day, Donovan Grobelaar, Luke Ronchi, Faulkner, Dan Christian, Permaul

    If I was actually picking a team I'd put Chiggy in for Chibby though. Chibby is the only total shunt in that team in my eyes. The rest range from gun to a bit ****.

    You can't reasonably select current players as they've still got an opportunity to pick up a ton or 5 wicket haul.

    Definitely more interesting to look at those whose careers are now over. At least IMO.
