Sort by surname[edit]

It's much more useful to be able to sort the list by surname than by first name. The way to do it is to use Template:Sortname if anybody can be bothered implementing this. Schwede66 19:08, 24 October 2013 (UTC)

Great idea. I'll start to do this. Big job though. ShakyIsles (talk) 22:59, 24 October 2013 (UTC)

Separate tables versus single list[edit]

Is there any reason for this? Columns are sortable, but because the names are not in a single table, you cannot compare (for example) highest run scorers or leading wicket takers overall; only of players who debuted in a particular decade. It's pretty easy to bring everything into a single table, but I wondered if there were any reasons/advantages of keeping it in the current format? Bs1jac (talk) 09:59, 24 February 2016 (UTC)
