There are lots of brothers in the WC squads and it seems that there are always a lot of brothers in cricket
more than any other sport at international level?
Pakistan - Akmal
NZ - McCullum
WI - Bravo
India - Pathan
Ireland - O'Brien
Kenya - Ngoche
And if Albie Morkle had been selected then that would have been half the world cup squads playing with brothers
It's understandable for Ireland and Kenya maybe because the required standard is not so high, but the others are all test playing nations
It's hard to imagine any other sport with this many siblings in it. How many brothers played in the last football world cup?
Anyone able to shed some light on why this may be?

Funnily enough, all members of the Tasmanian first class squad are related.

Watch out, for as soon as it pleases them they’ll send you out to protect their gold in wars whose weapons, rapidly developed by servile scientists, will become more and more deadly until they can with a flick of the finger tear a million of you to pieces

David and Mike Hussey would both be there, but for... Well I'm still not sure why not.
Maybe we wouldn't be so quick to fill buckets with filth if we knew they had a soul. Or maybe that's what they're into. Ain't no way to get inside a bucket's mind.

The Bravo's are only half brothers
