    Who was an ATG FC cricketer

    I only just realised that if you take out Test cricket records, you may see a completely different cricketer. Examples: Mark Waugh scored 18,826 runs @ 58.10 if you ignore his test record of 8,029 runs @ 41.81 Richie Benaud would walk into Australia's current side as a batsman given his FC...
