    Here is an "AFAIK" update:

    1. M Reed (Withington Wonderers) - remarkable bat
    2. J Duggan (Whenuapai CC) - wonderful bat
    3. G Mccammon (Got Spin) - exceptional bat
    4. S Cuss (Asterix XI) - wonderful bat
    5. F Watkins (Asterix XI) - exceptional bat, quality bowl
    6. D Sandwith (Withington Wonderers) - remarkable bat
    7. M Gray (Anchormen) - quality bat, strong keeping
    8. T Whitehorne (Asterix XI) - superb bat, sensational bowl
    9. S Moodley (Roar CC) - exceptional bowl
    10. J Lovegrove (Dalmeny Cricket Club) - sensational bowl
    11. T Lee (Whenuapai CC) - exceptional bowl

    Gun team if you ask me. Nice mix of aggression too, though 4 spinners is a bit "spin-heavy".

    Bardle is remarkable with decent secondaries I think.

    Also Canning, Pace (I think), Allen, Graham.

    Yeah, he's remarkable/quality, so is Graham, Canning is remarkable/strong with superb batting. But I think quality/exceptional is good enough to get Watkins the gig, especially considering the extra batsman he allows us to play.

    Bardle is RFM, as is Canning (who just popped to strong cons today).

    Edit: Jamee tells me that Bardle popped to wonderful today

    I meant wonderful, anyway i think may Canning would have to be a shot for Moodley, to improve the balance:

    And in the process trading in 2 levels of bowling & 4 levels of consistency? I'd stick with Moodley, tbh.

    Nah, Moodley's bowling is a full two levels better, and you don't really need a superb bat at no. 9 anyway.

    Agreed. Anyway, if you're replacing a spinner to get a seamer in the team, put Bardle in there instead, now that he's wonderful.

    Edit: Also just remembered that Hing told me today that Allen popped to wonderful batting, making him wonderful/prof bat, quality/med bowl with proficient stamina. Those secondaries might be the other way round though, not 100%. Wouldn't make the team on his bowling, but his batting might earn him a spot.

    Maybe, they're about the same although I think Lee is fairly close to sensational.

    I'd definitely consider putting in Bardle now that's he Wonderful/Superb instead of Lee. Need at least 2 seamers... but how can a current West Indian spinner not make it? Ahh, such is our depth

    Lee has received 1 bowling net for 11 weeks. According to his former manager, he had already been part way to sensational. So I'm guessing that within the next month he'll pop to sensation.

    Duggan is 6 weeks away from exceptional batting. He should also pop to wonderful concentration at around the same time.
