BRILLIANT POINT!

If you look at that list, it's funny to see. They're trying to count Welsh people when it's the England and Wales Cricket Board.

There's a few in there that aren't English and shouldn't have played but mainly that's apartheid linked or non test playing nations.

Counting geraint jones as being papua new guinean :lol:

Ben Hollioake on the list, RIP, one of my favourite cricketers. More English than my own son.

What would have been more appropriate language for you old bean?

Perhaps 'Cor Blimey' or even "You wouldn't Adams and Eve it"?

What's more unbelievable is that the list only goes back to 1983!

you don't qualify.

Perhaps you could now provide this list I have asked you for many times. The list is a joke, it calls someone PNG when they're parents were basically there on holiday when he was born, it calls someone german whose parents were living on British soil but transported to Germany for the closest hospital to them.


I'm all for decent wind ups but you need some facts behind it, which is why I asked you the question many times now but you failed miserably.

The list you have provided shows only the country they were born in, nothing to do with their nationality.

That would be a bit much but it would still make sense seeing as I have to correct you and prove you wrong so often

Looks like it might be time for more Englishmen and/or sub-continent ex-pats to form their team moving forward. Using ex-pat Saffers hardly worth looking at any more now they themselves are looking like a mere shell of what they were.

One player in our side who wasn't English at birth, one bloke in the Aussie side not Australian at birth. Next.

Seem to be able to win series easily enough with the side we have anyway. Easy wins against Australia, South Africa,

Probably tagged for scientific research and noted as a fish breed that was not particularly liked but the fish didn't seem to care.

Already bitten on the fish-hook. Thinking of throwing it back in as I have outdone my bag limit (not that Colossus would care) as I can see some "Hammerheads" in the distance. Apparently these breeds don't get on all that well, so could be interesting to watch how they might share similar waters.

Pretty sure the hanmerheads would run from the lion fish.
