    I had a team prepared made of players not yet taken before I left, had included Sobers so the balance is not quite as good as it was looking then.

    Graham Gooch
    Manoj Prabhakar
    Ian Chappell
    Mahela Jayawardene
    Misbah ul Haq
    Russel Arnold
    Adam Parore
    Gary Gilmour
    Kyle Mills
    John Snow
    Len Pascoe

    Extremely difficult to fill the team with players of enough quality after 168 players had already been selected.

    Does that mean it's my pick?

    Cant see anyone else taking my pick anyway, so Manuka Oval for no reason other than it's my local ground. Has hosted two ODI's I believe, one in the 1992 world cup and India vs Sri Lanka last year.

    Yep it was your turn.

    We have two people picking at once cause I thought it would get through quicker.

    So for the picks going up, Simon has just gone so now it's pskov. For the picks going down it's Dazza still.

    Soz, miffed that my favourite ground doesn't qualify. I'm torn between Mumbai and Chennai, so I'll pull a Canberra and go for the Chinnaswamy, Bangalore. Its the closest to a bull-ring atmosphere in India.

    Pukekura Park, New Plymouth, Taranaki, New Zealand.

    If I can't win, at least I'll have a nice looking ground to lose at.

    Prabhakar was chosen. Not too many others excite me from that list, but I was close to picking Kyle Mills. Was South Africa's Chris Matthews in contention? He was a good player.

    BTW it's pskov and Nnanden's turn.

    Not sure how I missed that Prabhakar was in Heath's side. In that case would select Aamer Sohail to open and share the fifth bowler's role alongside Arnold - leaves me a bit light on bowling but what do you expect with all the quality allrounders taken. Didn't really consider Matthews as Mills was a certainty for the team and I liked the combination of Snow, Gilmour and Pascoe to back him up, so there wasn't really room for another specialist bowler.

    I pick The Oval, if only because it's generally a good deck and has seen plenty of good ODIs down the years.

    Its always been popular with the pigeons, I hear.

    EDIT: How did you edit that one and it not register as being edited?

    I think you have 60 seconds before it registers as an edit, someone might want to confirm that though.

    Well if Heathster edited his then he found out as his edit didn't register either.
