    Nice round this.
    He's not a bad reserve for $4.

    Its brainless from me because I paid more than that. Forgot that he didn't do well in tests recently.

    It's interesting to see who you get, because in a way you get people that you rate higher than anyone else does.

    Wasim. Very pleased to get him, and at a good price all things considered. I just realised I hadn't submitted a nomination for the next round, apologies for that.

    My reserve bench is full. Now I can concentrate on the game. And pretty pleased to have a reserve bench worth about $10 in total - good going.

    Weldone XI so far:
    Rashid Latif+
    Richie Benaud*
    Dale Steyn

    Reserves: Junaid Siddique, Darren Pattinson, Irfan Pathan, Paul Harris

    True. I rate him reasonably highly despite his current form and record. He might actually feature in my first team if I dont get better options.

    Pressure is on to get a good player every round from now though, might not be as easy as you'd think (especially if people keep putting in "special" players)

    Also there aren't likely to be that many top players left in some teams. You might have to pay over the top for some average players just so that you dont miss out. Having said that, you've got the money to push through some good bids.

    It's impossible if you give me a 'Zimbabwe and Bangladesh' round later on. So far, I'm basing my strategy on the assumption that you are not so cruel to do that (which might be a dangerous assumption to make).

    Otherwise, it is difficult but not impossible. And I think I have the correct strategy in place for that...will be tough nonetheless..Pathan can sneak in if my attempts fail, but that's not how I want it to be.
