    Your First Name XI

    Probably an idea that's been done before here, but thought it might be fun. Basically just post the best XI you can of players that share your first name (variations in spelling are permitted).

    Here's what I've scraped together from the fairly meagre pickings offered by my nae (note that not much effort went into the batting order)

    1. Glenn Blakeney
    2. Glenn Bishop
    3. Glen Bruk-Jackson
    4. Glenn Turner
    5. Glenn Wilkinson
    6. Glenn Maxwell
    7. Glen Chapple (*)
    8. Glenn Querl
    9. Glenn Phillips (wk)
    10. Glenn Rogers
    11. Glenn McGrath


    Also, is it just me or does your name start looking and sounding like the weirdest word ever after reading/typing it in such a concentrated dose.

    Calum Macleod and Callum Ferguson are the only players of even modest noteworthy.

    Calum Haggett might be a name for Kent fans. The rest well you've got at most 10 FC between them.

    Glen/Glenn is ATG in comparison

    1 Chris Gayle
    2 Chris Rogers
    3 Chris Adams
    4 Chris Tavare
    5 Chris Nash
    6 Chris Read (w)
    7 Chris Cairns
    8 Chris Woakes
    9 Chris Tremlett
    10 Chris Old
    11 Chris Martin


    Power at the top, weak middle order, decent pace line up (with Mr Lewis in reserve, and Mr Schofield as spin option)

    Though I declined the Fred stretch to deny a place to Adam Gilchrist, that would've been cheating

    Other than Fleming and Smith there haven't really been any remarkable Stephen/Stevens out there. There have been a ton of mediocre first class players though.

    Does people who have my first names as last names count? That would probably be a better side, lol.

    I must have been on the crack pipe. How could I forget Tugga? Harmi to a lesser extent but I guess he had a reasonable career.
