    A certain Australian batsman from the 30s has to have got 10, surely...
    Or something.

    I don't mind updating the banned list to have 11/34 players on it, and you could join in as the last person to pick this round.

    I'll leave it up to the guys already in.

    If you are in, you are definitely the last one, anyone else will have to wait til the next draft.

    Sure. At the end.

    No-one was a unanimous nominee.

    It's not really Cricket if Weldone selects Joel Garner now, or he doesn't select him because he's already been chosen.

    BTW - I could be wrong but I think I selected Garner and Akhtar.

    Would be annoyed if that extra player was why I missed out on Garner. Have no problem with someone else added. Just if their votes don't count.

    I don't really like the idea of adding someone new after the game has already begun.

    Yeah same others probably wanted to play too, but figured that this has already started so they wont bother. Also if we do a SIM 11 isn't a good number, 10 is ideal..

    I mean what kind of sports related contest would have 11 participants..

    I assure everyone that the persons who selected their first pick before I sent my top 15 players are not going to suffer because of me, though that happened unintentionally (I mean it was not intensional that I didn't select those players, I simply didn't believe that they were among the best 15 after WW I - if you believe me)...

    To answer your first question, you probably missed my first post in this thread which I posted much ago, maybe after one or two teams mailed their top players to Matt...

    To answer your second question, I feel sim is a very bad idea for something like this, because people can simply win by picking players with great stats...

    And to answer your last question, hopefully 'jumping the shark draft'...
