I assume your cut-off point is age 40, otherwise Malcolm Marshall would have been a dead cert (sorry!). Love the blog by the way.

The Reverse Sweep

Thanks Matthew, glad you like the blog - Marshall is one of my heroes - see, and if I had based selection on ability clearly he would have been in. I tended to try and pick players who hadnt already retired.

Great article, I have to confess to having not heard of some of the names on the list.

I'd say that quite a few of them are very interesting stories in there own rights, particularly the Druitt story.

The Reverse Sweep

Thanks Dean. The Druitt one is a classic. Just imagine if a humble, gentile cricket player really did have an alter ego as one of the most infamous murderers of all time


Sir Frank Worrell would certainly captain this team. Collie Smith would also make a good selection

The Reverse Sweep

Sir Frank would be a great choice as skipper and I certainly toyed with the idea of putting him in the side. However, in the end I decided to restrict my choice to those that had their careers cut short by their untimely deaths. If an early exit was the only deciding factor, then Worrell and Malcolm Marshall (the best fast bowler Ive ever seen) would have been automatic selections
