DIRK-NANNES

U19 Vice-Captain
This is with current first class cricketers right?

I'll take a punt on a limited overs Kiwi one, except I'm also using players that aren't yet qualified :happy::
1. BJ Watling
2. PJ Ingram
3. KS Williamson [Tests: BMK Patton - move Williamson to 5]
4. JG Myburgh
5. RJ Nicol
6. SL Stewart [Tests: Replace with Nicol]
7. *+ CFK van Wyk
8. LJ Wood**** [Tests: TS Nethula - bat @ 10 and move the others up]
9. N Wagner
10. BJ Arnel
11. LJ Shaw

Other squad members:
Seam - TA Boult, MJ McClenaghan (:tongue:)
Spin - BP Martin
Bat - AK Kitchen, GR Hay
All-round - C de Grandhomme

I'd rather have Reece Young over van Wyk, but I dunno who would captain :laugh:
de Grandhomme could fit in as an all-rounder for limited overs, otherwise Myburgh and Williamson would be the 5/6th bowlers.

I'm not really sure who to have as 3rd seamer or no. 5 bat - Boult, McClenaghan and Kitchen are still unknown quantities.

Bit light on the pace bowlers isn't it? Like the team though, could see it giving our full team a bit of a go.

An England test side could look something like:

Jimmy Adams
Michael Carberry
James Taylor
Mark Pettini *
John Bairstow
Robin Martin-Jenkins
Jonathan Batty +
Chris Woakes
James Tredwell
Mark Davies
Steve Finn

That was difficult. Virtually every player in the country appears to have played an ODI at some point! Keepers especially. I was assuming I could use Pothas, but I didn't realise he's played ODIs for SA.

Indeed, I came across a similar problem, tbh. Pretty much everyone half decent has at least had some ODIs or a T20 under their belt. Sunny Sohal and Thaker were picked purely statistically and I have not heard too much about either of them, itbt.

Your team looks pretty solid though.

First name on the list for me would be David Sales. Very unfortunate not to have played for England. His record (FC av of 42) would look better if he had not had a nightmare couple of years after injury.

Usman Khawaja probably deserves his spot in front of Doropolous who hasn't done much in first class Cricket, very handy in List A matches though is Theo.
