    My Side

    Ive got an awesome side at the moment for Lancs and England and after another landslide victory over Indiai i thought i share it, everyone should post up their current sides as well.

    England 2041:

    1. Alan Eaton (28, RHB): 80 Tests, 8048 runs @ 78.90
    Agressive opener, holds test match record with 411
    2. Alan Daly (26, RHB) 9 Tests, 968 runs @ 107.56
    New boy, scored 5 centuries in 11 innings
    3. Barry Leaburn (26, RHB), 58 Tests, 4286 runs @ 63.97
    Mr. Dependable, averages 85 at County level
    4. Robert Garside (26. LHB) 87 Tests, 7754 runs @ 75.28
    The most gifted batter in the side, averages a century every 3 completed innings
    5. Graham McLeod (29, RHB) 105 Tests, 9605 runs @ 73.32
    Most Experienced player in the side, seen it all
    6. A Fogden(22, WK, RHB) 36 Tests, 1532 runs @ 43.77
    Young Keeper, already with 4 centuries to his name
    7. A York (31, LHB, SLA) 80 Tests, 3310 runs @ 46.62, 145 Wickets @ 32.68)
    [I] The old man of the team, struggling to justify his place in the test side as their are better batters and he's bowled just 38 overs in the last 2 years{/I]
    8. P Birchall(20, OS), 8 Tests, 44 wickets @ 12.57
    Most promising spinner to emerge in years, handy with the bat aswell
    9. A Cleef (28, RHB, RFM) 59 Tests, 1289runs @29.30, 330 wickets @ 16.87
    Lethal with the ball and dangerous with the bat, if he were an Aussie he'd be an all rounder
    10. Andy Osborne (28, RF) 76 Tests, 257 wickets @ 19.34
    Came on to the scene at the same time as Popplewell, unspectacular but explosive, especially in ODI's
    11. Morris Popplewell (27, LFM) 83 Tests, 538 wickets @17.15
    The Golden boy when he burst on to the scene, has an awesome record, even if people think he could do even better.

    Thats my current first XI, the Alan Daly is currently in the side as my other regular opener, (J Whitehead, 8408 runs @ 61.37) is injured but on this form he'll keep his place. S Yates( 1096 runs @ 78.29) sometimes plays in place of York. Birchall made his debut last year and is currently keeping A Clews(336 wickets@18.20) out of the side.

    In ODI's my batting isn't that great, 3 batsmen average over 50 (including Leaburn 2803 @ 75.76) and the rest average 40-50. My bowling is phenomenal though, with Osborne(185 @12.05), Popplewell(221@13.93), G Orton (111@14.34), Clews( 117@14.56) and Cleef(158@15.92) my front line attack.

    This recent game against India emphasised the quality. What are everyone elses current sides like?

    How do you get such good players? Do you just wait for a few seans for goo players to pop out of the youth team?

    Yeah you dont get many good before 2010, after that i tend to get at least one good player a season depending on who retires - i also pay a lot more attention to second team average when selecting batsmen from other sides, i had a guy who was averaging 25 in FC at Durham, but his second team ave was 72, and he ended up averaging 60 for england over 100 tests.

    My England Team in 2007 but it's nothing too special bar. The Ashes

    Marcus Trescothick(31 LHB) 43 Tests 2497 runs @ 32.86
    His stats don't do him justice but he's likely to take the captaincy when the current captain retires. The ODI Keeper
    Andrew Strauss (30 LHB) 12 Tests 752 runs @ 44.23
    The new opener who replaced Butcher at the end of 2006 and kept his place through the Ashes
    Kevin Pietersen (26 RHB) 47 Tests 4000 runs @ 52.63
    The best Number 3 in the World Pietersen has made a great 3-4 partnership with Bassano
    Chris Bassano (31 RHB) 35 Tests 3168 runs @ 56.57
    The golden boy of English Cricket: he batted us to the Ashes
    Graham Thorpe (37 LHB) 100 Tests 7359 runs @ 47.17
    A great English batsman who is not wanted to retire as he's still making good scores
    Mark Ramparkash (37 RHB) 91 Tests 4896 runs @ 34.24
    Had 3 good years as captain but goes into this Test knowing it will be his last. Looking for 104 runs in the match for his 5000.
    Russell Warren (35 RHB,WK) 13 Tests 579 runs @ 36.00
    The new wicketkeeper who's not up to the ODI standard
    Vikram Solanki (31 RHB,OS) 8 Tests 389 runs @ 48.62 19 wickets @ 46.21
    An unusual player to have at 8, Vikram plays an important part in England's huge totals
    James Middlebrook (30 OS) 36 Tests 155 wickets @ 30.29
    The regular spinner but isn't getting a certain spot because of Hoggard
    Ricaldo Anderson (30 RMF) 8 Tests 30 wickets @ 33.07
    A new pacer to the English attack, Anderson has still not managed to convert First Class Form into Test Wickets
    Paul Hutchinson (30 LFM) 20 Tests 91 wickets @ 28.01
    He's been around for 4 years and has played in 3 Ashes Series but his crown on a still young head was leading the attack in the Ashes Victory

    The only other player in the running for a spot is Matthew Hoggard 152 wickets @ 31.42

    All Stats accurate to End of the 2nd Test vs Sri Lanka.
    Or something.

    RIP Fardin Qayyumi (AKA "cricket player"; "Bob"), 1/11/1990 - 15/4/2006

    England in 2009
    Martin Stafford (27 RHB) 53 tests 4500runs @ 44.15 9x100 23x50
    he came pretty early, and impressed from the start till now in Tests, 100 on debut was very cool, he's getting back into form
    Bill Shuttleworth (24 RHB) 8 tests 807 @ 50.44 3x100 4x50
    Pretty new on the scene, very good opening batsman and is impressing me, kicked Trescothick out of the team.
    Kevin Pietersen (28 RHB) 72 tests 4899 runs @ 36.83 8x100 23x50
    Captain of the team, not doing as good as i expected, but steady batting
    Matthew Wood (28 RHB) 43 tests 3820 runs @ 51.62 5x100 24x50
    Has a great form lately and always makes runs with a higscore of 240*
    Daniel Biley (26 RHB) 24 tests 1785 runs @ 37.98 4x100 8x50
    also a newby, good guy makes some runs good form most of the time.
    Christopher Bassano (33 RHB) 54 tests 3154 runs @ 3154 5x100 17x50
    Also a batsman were i expected way more from he shouldve made way more runs in my opinion.
    we have no steady keeper, im trying all possibilities Kenway is keeper ATM but its not going to well with hm atm
    Matthew Hoggard (32 RFM) 75 tests 267 wickets @ 32.49
    best bowler in the team always steady
    Michael Smethurst (32 RM) 32 tests 115 wickets @ 35.25
    [U]Good bowlers takes his wicket most of the time.
    Paul Hutchison (31 LFM) 45 tests 188 wickets @ 32.66
    Steady left armer bowls good, but also has off days now and then.
    Kevin Dean 17 tests 35 wickets @ 53.47
    is awesome in FC but just doesnt get his line and length in Test.

    not a to good team, expect the openers and wood who are awesome hopefully i will get some decent bowlers soon !

    How did you find such a good keeper?

    I've never had a keeper average over 40 for a career!

    This is my Worcestershire team in 2009. I captained England for 3-4 years, then grew tired of it and decided that until I win everything in the Domestic league, I will steer clear from internationals.

    1. N. Marston (29, RHB) 11922 runs @ 44.16
    He came in during the second season as a replacement for Pollard. His first season was incredible - 2000 runs at 75.68. He's been steadily dropping since, but still has his days.
    2. M. Butcher (37, LHB) 17743 runs @ 37.83
    His career average doesn't reflect the performance he's seen at Worcestershire. Last season he scored 995 runs at 45.23. Soon to retire, no doubt.
    3. A. Strauss (32, RHB) 9748 runs @ 34.81
    Never quite developed into the star I was hoping, though last year he showed a glimpse of his capabilities - 1165 runs at 46.60.
    4. J. Kallis (33, RHB/RFM) 19662 runs @ 46.93, 590 wickets @ 28.75
    What more needs to be said? Last year he scored 2100 runs @ 80. I decided to resign him, and so far he has scored 1046 @ 58.11. Very rarely use his bowling, however.
    5. I. Bell (27, RHB) 11923 runs @ 43.20
    He came in around the same time as Strauss. Very reliable, rarely makes huge scores. Last season he scored 1347 @ 34.54, but with 1 century and 9 half-centuries.
    6. A. Flintoff (31, RHB/RFM) 8654 runs @ 33.54, 227 wickets @ 36.18
    Hasn't quite developed into the greatest batsmen of all time, but has handy knocks here and there. Last season was spectacular, 826 runs at 43.47, only managing 1 century.
    7. M. Wood (28, RHB) 9152 runs @ 43.37
    A new addition this year, who I have coached as England captain. Has been solid this season, albeit away on international duty. So far, 448 runs at 40.73.
    8. J. Crawley (37, RHB, wk) 26140 runs @ 45.78
    A silent performer with the bat, Crawley has led us to victory on many occasions with his excellent ability to rotate strike. Set to retire, he's been with us for over 5 years. This season, has scored 778 runs at 51.87.
    9. C. Silverwood (34, RFM) 835 wickets @ 27.00
    One third of our experienced and aging bowling attack, he's been fairly consistent, and always ready to hold his own in a partnership with Crawley, the two recently mounted a 171 run partnership. This season, has taken 33 wickets at 25.91.
    10. P. Hutchinson (32, LFM) 980 wickets @ 24.07
    Possibly our best bowler, he is always opening the bowling for England. Did manage most wickets in a season 2 years ago with 103. Currently, has taken 40 wickets at 26.00.
    11. N. Carter (34, LMF) 344 wickets @ 25.90
    Oddly enough, we REsigned Neil last year after terminating his contract several years prior. Only in the team due to lack of any other bowlers, has only taken 47 wickets at 32.60 this season.

    My English side in the year 2071.

    Richard Dyson (32, RHB) 109 tests, 7612 runs @ 38.84, 18 centuries
    Very agressive opener in a form slump after average has dropped by seven in the last three seasons.

    Lawrence Eddery (35, RHB, Captain) 1169 tests, 3029 runs @ 44.02, 30 centuries
    Brilliant captain after taking over from keeper Vic Legg two seasons ago. Has been a solid opener since taking over the spot after the departure of 20 000 test run veteran Mark Behm.

    Dominic Mason (27, RHB) 12 tests, 888 runs @ 55.50, 3 centuries
    Younger brother of Greg Mason. Scored 200 on debt, but has since struggled a bit.

    John Behm (31, RHB, WK) 111 tests, 9034 runs @ 55.42, 26 centuries
    Not a wicketkeeper per-se, but after the retirement of legendary keeper Vic Legg, no prominent keeper has come through, so he takes the spot.

    Mark Andrews (31, LHB) 138 tests, 11683 runs @ 53.84, 37 centuries; 162 ODIs, 6309 runs @ 58.41, 13 centuries
    One of the greats already at 31 years of age. Averaged in the seventies after 100 One Dayers, but form has since gone. Future captain.

    Gregory Mason (30, RHB) 108 tests, 9287 runs @ 57.68, 30 centuries
    Possibly a contender for the captaincy alongside Mark Andrews. Batted well at three until his younger brother came through, and now bats at six.

    Sydney Barnes (27, RHB) 20 tests, 1487 runs @ 61.96, 4 centuries
    Unlucky to not get more tests, but will now be a regular contributer. Great average but found it hard to break through in his limited opportunities.

    Nathan Murray (38, RFM) 76 tests, 324 wickets @ 27.62
    Was off and on as a fast bowler when Geoffery Street was injured. After a group of retirements he became the opening bowler and one of the better quicks in the country.

    Max Rule (27, RLS) 42 tests, 268 wickets @ 21.20
    Didn't get a spot in the team after John Yau and slow left armer Chris Payne tookm up the spots. After they retired, he became the premier spin bowler.

    John Rampling (31, ROS) 3 tests, 8 tests @ 25.62
    Never has had a go in his career, with only three tests despite the 600 FC wickets at 19. After retirements he will become a regular player in the team.

    Fred Stoddart (34, RFM) 103 tests, 486 wickets @ 25.98
    Broke down with a lot of injuries, but still amassed wickets. A solid player upstaged by the batting order.

    Nah i dont do that, then you would have to keep loading it up all the time, you get good enough players as it is - and a lot of the time the guys with high second team averages are pretty much flops. i had a guy who had a second team ave of 85 but his FC average was 32 after 3 seasons so i got rid of him.
