Cricket's all-time alphabetical 'R' Team

With the pairs of Richards (and sons) and Russells, as well as other high quality players, the ‘R’ Team is perhaps best described as ‘light heavyweight”’– strong and powerful but just below a few of the others. Still, this is a very strong team.

Cricket's All Time K Team

With some of the composite teams coming up, we are now past the half way mark of this marathon. To date, the B Team and the H Team are the stand outs and it’s fair to say that they won’t be challenged by the K Team.

I was at that Test for a couple of days as a 14 year old. The Peters Test with Taylor taking 6 for on debut and Sleep taking the final match winning wicket.

A few months later we won the World Cup.

GEEVES: From Bundy and Coke fuelled abuse to social media filth, the poison changed but damage remains the same

Typical Head – could only face 127 balls.

Travis Head makes a statement with absolute troppo innings of 230 from 127 balls

I’d rather him stay here and get some red ball games under his belt.

Weird comment from Chappell. There are plenty of former cricketers involved.

The answer to any question that asks whether the solution is going back to full strength beer is always “yes”.

JWH is top 5 I reckon. Certainly ahead of 7 to 10 on your list.

Is Benji Marshall the best Kiwi rugby league player ever?

Were they intending on using the Redcliffe name?

Australia showed how over-rated they are last summer. England’s odds are way overs for the series.

How this 'battle hardened' England squad can reclaim the Ashes down under

Feels like it’s really only the top notch Japanese players like Ichiro and Ohtani and Darvish who can make ridiculous money in the MLB who go over.

I reckon Lewis is a big chance.

Meanwhile, the MLB playoffs have been pretty even so far.

3 of the 4 series are 1-1.

As you pointed out, only 256 guys out of 906 are good enough to play in this league from the rest of the world. That’s a very low number from the worldwide total who supposedly play.
To be fair, if you ranked the top 1000 baseball players in the world by salary, a lot more than 256 would be ex-USA. The top Japanese players would earn more than the bottom MLB players.

AC Milan was started by British expats as a a cricket and football club. The cricket never really kicked on!

They won’t now.

If he votes for ScuMo he’s disqualified himself from the ABC.

Agree with the assessment of both players.

Lyon must be on thin ice.

The five-Test England quick who could make or break their Ashes campaign

Good to see Bryce Street get a ton under pressure today.

As for Ward – he’s already behind Hayden who got a big ton on SS debut! But I’m always glad to see a youngish opener do well.

Promising Ward shows Hayden-like qualities against star-studded Queensland attack

Lyon may not last the summer because Swepson’s window is open.
Lyon had better get to 400 wickets in the first Test or two.

Agree. But I do love an opener who puts a price on their wicket. And it seems that Warner does as well – his best combinations have been with Rogers and Cowan.
Plus in the current Shield match, he’s outperformed his 4 current and former Test teammates.

A ripping top spinner might be able to do it.

That’s two terrible balls at the death there.
