    VOTING THREAD : Test-only players ODI Draft

    In this draft all players who have never played a single ODI were eligible to select, however they were selected based on how they would have performed in ODIs.

    So please, while evaluating the teams, please remember that the abilities of these players in a hypothetical situation where they are playing in ODIs, despite having never played in one, are considered. It is down to your imagination to decide how good or bad they would have been based on their playing styles and performances.

    You cannot vote for your own team.

    Please select the three best teams based on the above criterion.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    1. J_C XI

    Barry Richards
    Budhi Kunderan +
    Peter May (c)
    Martin Donnelly
    Bob Cowper / 6
    Charles Macartney / 5
    Salim Durani / 7
    Hugh Tayfield / 4
    Wes Hall / 1
    Ken Higgs / 3
    Tom Richardson / 2


    2. Watson XI

    01. Eddie Barlow (6)
    02. Tom Graveney
    03. Ted Dexter * (7)
    04. Denis Compton
    05. Eddie Paynter
    06. Keith Miller (2)
    07. John R. Reid (4)
    08. Jim Parks +
    09. Peter Pollock (1)
    10. Charlie Griffith (3)
    11. Ernie Toshack (5)



    BATTING
    Barlow, Dexter and Compton to be the aggressors during the first half of the innings with Graveney and Paynter to work the gaps and anchor the innings. Miller and Reid to continue the assault with Parks to take the team home if necessary. All batsman have the technique and temperment to switch to more defensive or attacking roles as the situation demands.

    BOWLING
    Pollock and Miller to open the bowling with Pollock to use up most of his 10 overs. Griffith, Reid, Barlow, and Toshack to bowl during the middle period of the innings. Dexter to help out if needed. Miller and Griffith to return and bowl out the final 10 overs or so. Griffith to take on a Joel Garner like role with his legendary yorkers to the opposing tail.


    3. CricZo XI

    1. WG Grace / o (6)
    2. Alan Melville /
    3. Archie Jackson /
    4. Dudley Nourse /
    5. Colin Bland / o (7)
    6. Trevor Goddard / o (4)
    7. Mike Procter o / (2)
    8. Gerry Alexander + /
    9. Gubby Allen o / (3)
    10. Johnny Wardle o (5)
    11. Fred Spofforth o (1)



    4. Aldo XI

    01. Jack Hobbs
    02. Archie Maclaren
    03. Graeme Pollock
    04. Vijay Hazare [6]
    05. Neil Harvey
    06. John Waite+
    07. Learie 'Baron' Constantine* [4]
    08. Wilfred Rhodes [5]
    09. Jack Cowie [1]
    10. Ted McDonald [2]
    11. Ken Farnes [3]


    BATTING : The opening pair complements each other well, Jack Hobbs faces the first ball with a steady approach picking easy gaps and finding boundaries with the fielding restrictions, while Maclaren adds the flair and dominates the bowling with his powerful strokes. Hobbs will look to play the bigger innings carrying on as long as he can.
    At 3 comes in Graeme Pollock, one who can adapt to any situation presented, and completely destroy a bowling attack with ease. I expect him to provide a Ponting-esque presence as an ODI cricketer.
    At 4 is Vijay Hazare, can steady the ship when needed and keeps the scoreboard ticking.
    At 5, is Neil Harvey, stylish and aggressive, a great finisher as every ODI team needs, the latter half of innings would revolve around him.
    At 6 is John Waite, a top order batsman by trade being a solid bat in this team.
    At 7 Constantine can provide the fireworks in the end blasting the ball over the boundary. A great man to have whether chasing or finishing an innings, never backing down.
    Rhodes and Cowie take the order till number 9, a long batting order makes it all the more difficult for the opposition to overcome and there will be no shortage of runs here, and the chases will never be in danger.

    BOWLING : The accurate Cowie and the aggressive McDonald take the new ball. Cowie restricts the runs in the powerplay while McDonald goes for broke and attacks the batsmen. Farnes takes over soon and finishes most of his overs, with Constantine and Rhodes working the middle overs. Hazare chips in with the extra overs when needed, Cowie returns to bowl at the end with Constantine/McDonald at the other end. Fielding unit is top notch with the likes of Hervey and Constantine being absolute GUN fielders who will surely contribute a lot in the field, more than most others. I've given the captaincy to Baron Constantine, as he was innovative in his ideas and would adapt better than anyone to ODI situations.




    5. Wally's Wizards

    1. Sid Barnes
    2. Bert Sutcliffe
    3. Sir Everton Weekes
    4. Ken Barrington
    5. Wally Hammond (capt) (6)
    6. Vijay Manjrekar +
    7. Vinoo Mankad (4)
    8. Trevor Bailey (3)
    9. Hedley Verity (5)
    10. George Lohmann (2)
    11. Fred Trueman (1)




    6. Morgieb XI

    1. Herb Sutcliffe
    2. Warren Bardsley
    3. Frank Worrell (6)
    4. Jack Ryder (7)
    5. Basil Butcher
    6. Lee Irvine
    7. Monty Noble (5)
    8. Charlie Turner (2)
    9. Bill O'Reilly (4)
    10. Brian Statham (1)
    11. JJ Ferris (3)




    7. Bradman's Buddies

    Hutton
    Fingleton
    McCabe (3)
    Brown
    Jardine*
    Hassett
    Tallon +
    Bedser (1)
    Voce (2)
    Grimmett (4)
    Ironmonger (5)


    Either Hutton or Fingleton to play sheet anchor. If one gets out early, send in Brown to act as a backup opener, if not McCabe. One of these three openers should be able to usually accumulate a big score. McCabe can come in with a good platform to blast 232 or whatever he does. Jardine to play a Steve Waugh like role and Hassett to play like Bevan. Tallon can swing it hard like Moin Khan, except a better keeper. The rest are bad.

    But for bowling, the four tailenders were all super economic and in the case of IronMonger, Grimmett and Bedser, amazing wickettakers. Biggest weak spot McCabe bowling 10 overs but hey he opened the bowling sometimes so he couldn't be terrible right?




    8. Red Hill XI

    Arthur Morris
    Bruce Mitchell
    Frank Woolley
    Norm O'Neill
    SF Jackson *
    Nip Pellew
    George Giffen
    Godfrey Evans +
    Alan Davidson
    Hugh Trumble
    Harold Larwood


    Bowlers: Larwood - Davidson - Giffen - Trumble - Woolley - Jackson - Mitchell




    9. Schearzie XI

    1. Denis Lindsay+\
    2. Bill Ponsford\
    3. Johnny Tyldesley\
    4. Stewie Dempster\
    5. Bob Barber \•
    6. Sam Loxton \•
    7. Jack Gregory •\
    8. Ray Lindwall •\
    9. Fazal Mahmood*•
    10. Mohammad Nissar •
    11. Subhash Gupte •





    10. Pothas XI

    Jock Cameron
    Conrad Hunte

    Patsy Hendren
    Ranji

    It wont be easy to vote since we have to keep in mind that we are expecting these guys to do well in ODI. So how they played their game is very much important here.

    Favourite teams were by OverRated and Red Hill who hit the nail on the head for me. Then a tie between Schez, Pothas, and OJs. In the end, Headley at No.3 and the pairing of Barnes with Foster were too good to ignore. Cameron standing-up to both those bowlers is perfect.

    Nicely run Draft Aldo. Thanks

    I was choosing between Watson Pothas, Odd Jobs and OS's XIs. Plenty of good sides, but I chose aggressive sides that I felt could contain their opponents with fielding as well.
    I'd also say that of all those there the one who was earliest of all who could have adapted to ODI was Jessop, so well done OS choosing him.
    Great sides everyone

    I think the spread of votes is showing how most people view this so differently. it's very difficult to transfer what you've seen or read about a player in FC or tests to ODI's.

    Exactly! It was a good draft though. Fun to play but the end result is confusing.
