    I thought van Bunge had a bit to offer - with the bat, not his wristspin.
    De Leede (is he still around?) looked a cut above the rest, too.

    Van Bunge has a bit to offer. we might see him back in england( scored most MCC YC runs in MCC history) but county's seem not to want him. Middlesex offerd him his chance and he didnt make it.
    De Leede is still around (coaching little tazzy here)
    He is a cut above the rest, a really good cricketer, the only reason he never played county cricket is because he was soo in love with his gf(now wife) that he got homesick all the time...now has a huge family haha.
    i mean how many cricketers still are in the top 5 of batting and bowling when they are nearing 40's !
    oke it is dutch club cricket, but it is close to Australian 1st grade cricket, if not equal.

    de Leede's 2005 stats
    4 Leede de T B M V.C.C. 18 18 3 772 118 51,47
    1 Leede de T B M V.C.C. 139 24 351 14,63 2,522
    (topping the bowling avg wise)

    And I doubt Dutch club cricket is even close to Australian First Grade.

    If you ask Australian Grade Cricketers that play in Holland, they will say it is of the level of 2nd Grade Cricket in Australia. It all depends on your preception and which comp you take more seriously. Most grade cricketers go to Holland for a holiday and to play some cricket on the side. Cus they know that their performances wont mean much back home.

    some use it to get back into form after a injury.
    some use it to stay inform.
    but you can't tell me they wont try to make as many runs as possible!
    or wickets for the matter.

    Yes, but that is a level well well below Aussie first grade.

    For a start young county players play in it, but when they go over to Aus for wintering, they have a real battle to get in.

    That explains why the England club side always beats Holland at the EC, right?
