    Every 5 years we have an election and have to decide who are the least obnoxious out of all the men. Then one gets in and they age really quickly. Which is always fun to watch.

    Lot of good teams there but will vote for Pothas. His team stands out a bit from the rest. Good job by him.

    Himmanv has an outstanding side, clear winner.

    Zaremba the runner-up though.
    Direbirds FTW!

    It really wasn't, Vettori in particular is pretty meh in that lineup. McGrath + Lara + Flower makes a heck of a foundation to any team and it is rounded out quite nicely.

    Pothas has the best bowling attack for me, but honourable mentions to Zaremba and Furball - can't split 'em for second

    Boring.

    Voted for Pothas and Himanv on the basis of their bowling attacks, as well as the fact that they have Dravid and Steyn respectively.

    Couldn't split Pothas, Zaremba and Himmanv. Pothas has the best bowling attack, Himmanv has probably the strongest middle order with Murali to bowl, but Zaremba has the best balanced side and I think I'd want to watch that side the most too.

    Random thought: Zaremba's XI would also kick everyone else's to kingdom come if this were an ODI draft.

    Other awards:

    Best opening pair - GingerFurball
    Best batting depth - Zaremba
    Best bowling depth - weeman27bob
    Most Players Out of Position - centurymaker
    Best 12th Man - Howe_zat

    Pothas clearly has the best team. But I wanted to vote for more than one team, so voted for GingerFurball too.

    I voted Pothas 1st, and Zaremba 2nd as I thought of them in that order but then when I realised Zaremba could drop dead-weight Symonds for Streak and Shuffle Vettori and Flintoff up I decided that was my favourite.

    Zaremba for me.

    Good sides most of 'em. Himmanv and Pothas have two excellent sides (esp. the bowling is killer) and are my top two.

    The Gilchrist factor and a very powerful middle order makes me choose Howe_zat as the third contender.


    Honourable mention to Zaremba's team which looks like a fantastic outfit, except for the fact that the batsmen below Flower are not the most reliable. It's possibly the best ODI unit of all the teams listed though.

    Blakus / Pews came up with an awesome side despite being about 5 rounds behind due to Pews honouring his civic duty. They get my vote.

    I do like my squad though! Only the 2nd draft I've done. Have loved them both.

    I do like my squad though! I should explain that Symonds and Gibbs owed their selection largely to their fielding skills.

    I still reckon you should can Symonds for Streak. Symonds was amazingly lucky to score the test runs he did and against the sort of quality in this draft I don't reckon he'd score too many more than Streak anyway and obviously as a Bowler Streak >>>>>>> Symonds. Symonds would be a damn fine 12th man though.
