    I really did underestimate how difficult this would be!

    Overall Pick #15: Zubin Surkari
    [​IMG]

    Profile
    Zubin Surkari is best known as the Canadian batsman who got an involuntary vasectomy from a 97 mph Shaun Tait full toss, managed somehow to get back to his feet and wobble back to the batting crease and face up to the next ball - only to quite sensibly get out immediately which meant he could get to the pavilion and ice his manhood. A far more sensible option than continuing the 130-minute stay at the crease which had yielded only 34 runs. But there really was a great deal more to Surkari, the elegant but utterly runless batsman born and raised in Toronto.

    You see, the trouble for Surkari was that he wasn't very good at batting. The technique was all there, but against decent bowling he didn't have the game to put the pressure back onto the opposition. Instead, he corralled the pressure around himself and his batting partner until it inevitably led to a wicket. In 53 List A and Twenty20 matches, including 27 full internationals, he never once passed 50 and maintained a sub-50 strike rate.

    Statistics
    ODIS - :bat: 328 runs @ 17.26, SR 50.00 (best 49) in 23 matches
    LIST A - :bat: 559 runs @ 16.44, SR n/a (best 49) in 38 matches


    Role in the Team

    The modern ODI number three goes in and keeps the scoreboard ticking over. He's the sort of batsman who can score a hundred in 110 balls, but with only eight boundaries. He is not Zubin Surkari.

    Sajid Ali:pak: (13 caps)

    Ali opened for Pakistan 12 times in arguably their strongest era (1984-1997), played against a variety of opponents with 11 games in Pakistan and UAE but could only muster an average of 10.83.

    Will do a more refined write-up later.

    Dion Ebrahim :zim:

    [​IMG]

    • Dion Ebrahim played for Zimbabwe in the early 2000s played but failed to perform at the highest level scoring at average of 20 and a strike rate of 56 in ODI Cricket in a tally of 80 odd matches with 4 fifties & a Hundred to his name.
    • Due to Crisis in Zimbabwe Dion had a county Stint in England until he decide to make himself available for Zimbabwe cricket again by playing FC cricket in the country but poor performances averted any chances to return back in the national side.
    • Overall Dion failed for a relatively longer for time which surely puts him in the category of the Worst in Cricket.

    Stats : M - 82 I - 76 Runs - 1443 Avg - 20.61 SR - 56.81 100s/50s - 1/4

    For the moment I have kept him at no.4 as Ebrahim batted at as an opener , no.3 -6 in his careers over the years

    My next pick is Pubudu Dassanayake.


    An average of 10.62 for a keeper will be understandable if he was from the earlier eras. But this player played his 16 ODIs during 1993-94. He only batted in 10 innings, registering the highest score of 20*. S/R of 59.85 proved that he was not even a finisher. He batted well down the order so that could work in his favour but his domestic record is also not respectful for a keeper of the 1990s.

    List A average of 18.86 with just one fifty is disaster for a keeper of that generation.

    He will bat at no.8, trying to hardly bat and get out quickly. He will take up a bowler's place and be the keeper of my side, for now.

    My pick is Ray Bright, the Australian left arm spinner. In 10 innings, he's got 3 wickets at an average of 116. He will be better remembered for his 5 for 94 in the epic tied Test in Madras.

    James Kirtley. average of 1 so a solid number 11 - bowing average of over 50, economy rate sitting at 5.25 - should leak plenty of runs leading the bowling attack.
