    Most are pretty even imo, one or two weaker sides but I like Weldone's team.

    Voted GIMH for a few reasons, partly because Bevan would guide them home the majority of the time.

    Went Jamee's. Very strong bowling attack, and a more than handy batting lineup.

    voted for ozone's team

    top 3 batsmen are phenomenal .... next 4 are good supporting batsmen who can be match-winners on their day .... bowling is short with no genuine all-rounder in the squad, i guess Tendulkar, Crowe, Collingwood and McMillan would be rolling their arms. Marshall, Srinath and Saqlian are top class, while Patterson can be useful .... can't go wrong with having Crowe as the captain

    I went with NUFAN's team. It has the best batting lineup and a very strong bowling attack.

    Weldone and Jamee999 are IMO the equal second, and on their day could roll NUFAN's team. There are other very strong teams in the list but these three are the best IMO.

    went with G.I.JOE.. The team looks solid..


    BTW, a suggestion on HDS' team.. Why play Richie Richardson and Ganguly out of position? Would make much more sense to open with Grant Flower and Ganguly, Richardson at 3 and Prabhakar at 7 or something.. Or open with Ganguly and Prabhakar and have Richie at 3.. But I would still want Flower, who is a much better batsman than Prabhakar coming up the order...

    Voted for Nnanden' team, i think its a genuinely awesome side, has got a solid middle order and good all-round options, and a good bowling attack to go with it, having said that, i think most sides are pretty good (apart from mine)....

    Hard call. Went for Nufan, that batting line up is great and the bowling very solid.

    Reckon my team would beat it though.

    Jamee's team for mine

    Amazed they are still getting votes, even though they missed four rounds. Say a lot about the quality of Jamee early picks and well my ability to find rough diamonds late.

    Re: Jamee99's team - Sehwag bowling 10 overs every game plus no one else to turn to if any of the 4+1 bowlers have an off day....potential epicfail there. [/mudslinging]

    Normally my teams seem to be disadvantaged when simmed in VC4, but I reckon with two bowlers striking in the 20s, and another three striking in the 30s, my team would kill it in a sim.
