The Worst Test Player Regular in World Cricket by team

Postby Paddles » Wed Jan 02, 2019 1:02 am

So been reading that Stoinis has been told that MMarsh is still the preferred test allrounder.

Got me wondering - who are their countries' worst regular cricketers at the moment.

For NZL - Raval with an opening batting average of 34.7 is under some scrutiny. But I have more confidence in him than the minnow bashing Latham who averages over 40. It is like Langer and Hayden scenario. Mitchell Santner is really the one who hasn't locked down his place in the team for now. But he has his bowling average to 37 and his batting average is climbing - currently at 25.

For Aus - Mitch Marsh - batting average mid 20, bowling average approaching mid 40 immediately leaps out.

For Eng - Moeen Ali is under a lot of pressure all the time. But a batting average of over 30 and a bowling average of 37 is more than useful for his role as a spinner. One would look closer to Keaton Jennings and his 26.6 batting average.

For WI - Kieran Powell averages 26.81 as an opener.

For SA - Bavuma with a mid 30's batting average springs to mind.

I'll leave you guys to consider the Asian teams...
