    This is probably the third time I'm ending up with Richie Benaud in my team in a draft. Such a value player - a master legspinner, a master captain and a very capable lower-order batsman. Benaud is certainly among the best spin-bowling alrounders the game has seen.

    Team so far:
    Rashid Latif+
    Richie Benaud*

    Reserves: Paul Harris

    Almost managed Gupte there. Well played by Blakus, he's probably in the lead at the moment from the looks of things.

    ok.....good enough.....for such a cheap buy
    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta

    Someone must have got an absolute steal in that round.

    Solkar, Beer, Agarkar were probably the three worst players, so at a guess you'd assume they went for $1, $200, and $250,000.

    But that leaves a quality player who someone snapped up for only $500,666.

    Or was it me?

    Its fairly obvious to me who the "someone" is. Makes it easier to tell considering who I got and knowing what I bid for everyone.

    I won't make it a secret that I got Gupte for 500,000 odd. A pleasant surprise which puts me well under budget.

    Yep. I missed Gupte by a few dolloars so I knew it was you. I think I may have said it earlier, but good job getting him Blakus.

    Thanks. Congratulations to you for getting one of the best named cricketers of all time (too bad about his actual skills though).

    Thanks. He does have a fabulous name. Can just imagine all the favourite drink jokes he must have heard growing up.
