Favourite TCC/PVCC XI - Mark Anderson

27 Sep 2017

Second in our season of favourite XI's is Mark Anderson. Tranent Captain during season 2011 and still Tranent's leading wicket taker with 178 victims. 

1. Shiraz Ramzan Destructive opening batsman. Get him quick or he will damage you.

2. Neil Craigmile Need a leftie in the team. Steady bat who builds innings. Great glove work so team wicketkeeper.

3. David King Hugely difficult to dislodge. Steady batsman.

4. Dougie Russell All-rounder. Talented batsman who scores steadily, difficult to pick spinner and his knowledge of the game makes him the team captain.

5. Grant Jones Gifted batsman and steady bowler. Great attitude to have in the team.

6. Phil Taylor Only played a few seasons with him but great batsman and steady bowler. T20 specialist.

7. Scott Russell Steady batsman who needs to be prized out. Under-rated spin bowler.

8. Nick Grainger Destructive player with bat and ball. 

9. Sheljo Jose Fabulous quick bowler and end of innings run scorer. Everyone enjoys this big guy in the team.

10. Shabaz Ramzan Always a difficult bowler to play against. Quick and moves the ball, a great combination.

11. Adam Forsyth A young player who has developed a lot. Still has much talent to be unearthed. In the team for his bowling but his batting is fast improving.
