I could have probably gotten a Tendulkar instead of Amarnath then and had a modi and Utseya as my reserves.
I set out by dividing my budget into 13 players rather than 11.
I think we had the same dilmena in another draft as to whether to include the reserve players in accessing the best side. Even though my reserve players, especially Mushtaq Ahmed, are of a much higher quality than several of the other reserves, cough Utseya cough Joginder Sharma, I think its fairer to access the starting XI - in a tournament the reserves would come into play but for simplicity's sake I'd say judging the best XI players from each squad is a fairer exercise.
