The Spanish yet to produce a cricket team? (6)


I believe the answer is:


'a cricket team?' is the definition.
(a cricket team has eleven players)

'the spanish yet' is the wordplay.
'the spanish' becomes 'el' ('the' in Spanish).
'yet' becomes 'even' (synonyms).

'to produce' acts as a link.

(Other definitions for eleven that I've seen before include "Time for morning coffee" , "Cricket 18" , "Football side" , "Sporting side" , "Number on a soccer team" .)

I've seen this clue in The Times.
