Scrap out a decent score and then let the two leg-spinners do the rest, not a bad way to go in associate cricket. The two lead pacers are not bad at all either.

Enjoy the mix of some journeyman types from the traditional nations to go along with the best players ever from Afghanistan, Nepal, Papua New Guinea and Hong Kong.

The strength of this team lies in the aggressive pace attack and a very reliable middle order. I believe each player from no.3 to no.6 played a lead role for their respective batting units.

Openers have the freedom to play their natural aggressive cricket with experienced heads stacked up in the middle order.

When it comes to bowling,

Hamid averages 22 with the ball at a S/R of 29, Dawlat 29 @ S/R 32, Young 25 @ s/r 28.

Duncan Fletcher is the guy who was at the heart of everything Zim did to beat Aus in the 1983 WC. A master tactician and a wonderful AR.

Zeeshan Maqsood averages 21 with the ball at a s/r of 32 in both LOIs and List A cricket. Amazing record to have for a spin bowler. And an amazing spin option to back up the aggressive pace unit.

Here's my line-up:


1. Anshy Rath (7)
2. Peter Cantrell
3. Craig Williams (8)
4. Ryan ten Doeschate (6)
5. Matt Machan (9)
6. Ashish Bagai (+)
7. JJ Smit (2)
8. Jan Frylinck (3)
9. Peter Rawson (1)
10. Chad Soper (5)
11. Amir Hamza (4)

The top order batting oozes quality with the Anshuman Rath (now playing FC in India) up top and the Associate Legend that is Ryan ten Doeschate anchoring the middle order. Alongside them, indisputably Namibia's best batsman - Craig Williams - comes in at three. Queenslander and part-time Dutchman Peter Cantrell opens alongside Rath. Cantrell did score some hard-earned runs before the Netherlands gained ODI status, including a valuable 43 not out in the famous Dutch defeat of South Africa in 1994 (https://emergingcricket.com/columns/ec-rewind/when-the-dutch-walloped-south-africa/), 34 against the Pakistanis - facing Wasim and Waqar whilst opening in 1992, 64 against England in 1994 in another famous Dutch win and 253 runs @ 63 (including a ton and two 50s) in the 1994 ABN-AMRO trophy against Kenya and the UAE.

Experienced County player and Scotland middle-order bat comes in at 5, with Canadian keeper Bagai at 7.

The come the all-rounders. Two Namibian left-armers with useful batting prowess come at 7 and 8. JJ Smit now bats in the top order for Namibia and should do well at 7 in this comp. Rhodesian right armer Rawson comes in next, and will open the bowling alongside Smit. Rawson didn't play many ODIs for Zimbabwe, but his quality in first-class matches for Zimbabwe and Natal, as well as an extensive List A career demonstrate the statistics to match his ability. Certainly one of Zimbabwe's greatest bowlers, and a more than useful bat as well. Chad Soper from PNG provides a 4th seam up option, again with some more than useful batting and Afghanistan's Amir Hamza completes the line up. His ODI/List A batting stats aren't good, but he can bat - but hopefully shouldn't need to here with the batting depth available. His SLA will come in very useful, with additional spin from Rath and, less usefully, Machan to back him up.

Just 6 players from Bangladesh shows how they got test status way earlier than expected.

Surprised no one picked up Ehsan Khan. 29 ODI wickets at 20, including picking up Rohit Sharma and MS Dhoni in the same match in 2018, a game where we nearly upset India. Great List A, FC and T20I numbers to back that up. Had Tim David LBW 3 times but not given out last time we played Singapore. Continues to be a beast in HK club cricket.
