The Norwich City Cricket team

[quote user="refjezdavies"]If you had to pick an NCFC cricket team from our all time playing list who would you pick and why?[/quote]

 

A serious answer would be Terry Allcock, for starters. He kept wicket for Norfolk.

Yes, he did up until recently as well (Sheringham), and now his son plays, and also Craig Fleming plays (not sure who for).

Peter Crouch , because he would be perfect fielding at long leg.

Openers: Jon Newsome and Steve Bruce. A couple of strong lads with sturdy defences, but can also move the ball about a bit.

Three: Elliott Ward. Technically good defense, capable of a good dig in, occasionally undone by some southern hemisphere pace.

Four: Chris Martin. Some great technique, won''t be intimidated by a few bouncers.

Five: Wes Hoolahan. Time to be a bit more positive and play some attacking shots. Can''t be bounced out as they''ll always be over head height.

Six: Grant Holt. Batting all rounder. Can be a bit clumsy, capable of scoring some great shots. Flintoff-esque bowling action, all brute force. Flintoff-esque retirement advertising for Jacamo.

Seven (wk): Andy Marshall. Good ball handling, while his balls always cleared the touchline.

Eight: Ian Crook. Prodigous leg-spinner, capable of great shots.

Nine: Dion Dublin. Good line and length (allegedly).

Ten: Rob Earnshaw. Some frightening pace, capable of the occasional hattrick, sometimes liable to chuck in a few wides when his mind is elsewhere.

Eleven: Darren Huckerby. Enormous pace, zero defence.
