    Having Prior instead of Haddin has seriously cost me. They both cost the same too IIRC.

    Yeah, me too with Prior. How come he has -6? What else do you lose points for other than a duck?

    Lost 10 for the golden duck and made up 4 with two catches.

    Ah, course. I forgot he had a golden duck. Wow, there must have almost been a hattrick there!

    **** yes four ducks. Almost five too.

    And so awesome seeing Broad and Anderson outbowling every other bowler in the game save one and getting two wickets between them...



    And I would have had Haddin too because I was going to pick on form, and Haddin's form leading in looked quite good. But I decided it would make my team too Aus-heavy. ****.

    I was picking my team based on who I thought would do the best in conditions relative to their price, which means I should've picked Haddin too. I left him out, like you, because my team was too Aussie-heavy, and also because fantasy cricket doesn't punish **** wicket keeping.

    Yeah that's my modus operandi too but I reckon Prior in form would score a fair few runs here. So in the end it came down to form vs. "bias". Not making that mistake again for sure.

    It wasn't so much that I thought I was being biased, but that I thought my team was too dependant on Australia doing particularly well with Haddin in it. And yeah, I think Prior's a better batsman than Haddin, even if perhaps not in Australian conditions.

    That's a good way of looking at it.

    I'm just waiting for Collingwood to get his one big score out of the way for this series so I can bring Watto in.

    Wasn't counting on Clarke being all kinds of undercooked, too...

    I didn't have any of the English top three. Knew I'd get hammered.
