    Tall Timber

    so what is a team of the tallest cricketers you can think of, folks?

    mohammad irfan and sulieman benn (lol) are players that come to mind from the recent World Cup for me

    criteria?

    above 6'5" or 6'6"?

    Starc, Morkel and Mills to be in the mix. Gayle to open with Guptill.
    Proudly supporting Central Districts

    Will Jefferson. Also used to drive around in a car which was far too small for him and he kinda had to unfold himself from the car each time he got out. Lovely.

    Wouldn't surprise me. I think Jefferson is about 6ft 10in.

    I'll throw in Tremlett into the mix since the dude looks like the basis for all Ancient Greek sculptures of God-like physique.

    Pankaj Singh is almost 2 metres I think. Pretty much the tallest Indian player I can think of atm.

    Are you after just tall players or good tall players. Two metre Peter if the former. Clive Lloyd if the latter. Garner and Ambrose certain starters. Bruce Reid ?

    Tony Greig a certain number 6. You might struggle to find a keeper.... Wayne Phillips was pretty tall I think.

    1) Ross is Boss.
    2) See point 1.
