    minnows united

    what is the strongest 11 on paper you can make from the minnow squads? (Ireland, canada, netherlands, kenya) Must have at least one player from each side

    setting the bar pretty low, based pretty much on recent performance:

    Seren Waters (KEN)
    Alexei Kervezee (NED)
    Collins Obuya (KEN)
    Ed Joyce (IRL)
    Steve Tikolo (KEN)
    Ryan ten Doeschate (NED)*
    Andre Botha (IRL)
    Kevin O' Brien (IRL)
    Niall O' Brien (IRL) Ü
    Rizwan Cheema (CAN)
    Khurram Chohan (CAN)

    What have I got right? What have I got wrong? What would be a better answer?

    You've forgotten a bowling attack, for one.

    Boyd Rankin must be involved, and I'd also get Porterfield in for Obuya and shift Kervezee down to 3.

    Too many Kenyans and Canadians there. And, yeah, you've forgotten the bowlers. No idea how good Cheema is but I'll give him the benefit of the doubt.

    Alex Kervezee
    Niall O'Brien

    That list looks odd without Afghans, Hamid Hasan, Shenwari and Zardan. Argubly the best bowlers among minnows.

    Yeah, wish Afghanistan were there. Hassan would be straight in. Nabi and Shenwari worth a shout.

    Porterfield
    Kerveeze
    Cooper
    Joyce
    ten Doeschate
    N O'Brien
    K O'Brien
    Johnston
    Odoyo
    Rankin
    Dockrell

    12th: Davison

    I kind of wanted to leave Odoyo out after actually seeing him bowl yesterday for the first time in a couple of years, but even though he bowled about 20 wides he still took 3/40 and I don't think any of the other bowlers around the traps deserve a place over him other than perhaps Davo, who has also declined a bit.

    Tom Cooper is better than Waters on any day.
    I would like to watch bowlers dominate batsmen like a dog would a tail-wagging contest against a rabbit. Which means I spend most of my days fuming and cursing the game. The Newlands Test between South Africa and Australia has vindicated my belief that batsmen are a bunch of weak-minded, inept fools only good for waving about sponsor logos.

    An Associates Eleven in the World Cup would be a strong team thereby having a chance to win the Cup. YOU NEVER KNOW.

    Poterfield (IRE), Waters (KEN), Joyce (IRE), Tikolo (KEN), Doschate (NED), N. O'Brien+ (IRE), Shenwari (AFG), Odoyo (KEN), Hasan (AFG), Osinde (CAN) and Zardan (AFG) would make a competitive test side.

    Waters is decent but overrated at this stage. Amazed that in the recent Cricinfo article on Seren it was talking about future England aspirations. The kid isn't even broke into a poor Surrey side yet!

    Maybe against Bangladesh (or New Zealand).
