Ahh I get it! Its ok to put it back to the old one but to be honest, I wanted to go with Jacques Kallis as the Glamorgan player after watching Monk picking Waqar... Then realized it was late hence changed the reason!
CricZo XI - Draft League
Season 1 M Hayden, G Gooch, R Dravid, W Hammond, K Pietersen, G Sobers, R Marsh (wk), R Benaud (c), D Steyn, W Hall, N Adcock
Season 2 J Hobbs, B Richards, D Boon, H Taylor, C Lloyd (c), A Stewart (wk), T Goddard, A Davidson, H Tayfield, C Ambrose, H Griffith
Season 3 H Sutcliffe, M Hayden, I Chappell (c), G Pollock, A Faulkner, M Hussey, D Lindsay (wk), I Botham, A Kumble, M Marshall, D Lillee
I've edited as requested by KK so that Ambrose has been taken under the hat-trick clause. Eds may well be right though, it doesn't seem ok to edit your clause after others have picked, but I think KK has a good character, and he takes Ambrose either way. I'll let Jager (Draft Lord) decide what should happen next....

Devillier has the ability to show ball the right path, there are two ways to do so, 1. form where the ball is coming, 2 where the ball is going to
Amla can just hit the ball harder with the use of timing and strock
Devilliers is younger so he will learn with the passage of time
Devilliers plays in all the situations and conditons while all amla is a powerplay player
So Devillieris can be said as better
Late breakfast-time in England and lunch-time in Sri Lanka. Marcus to pick a player over his weeties, or Himannv to pick a player over his koola'ya ??

Barnes in this match revealed himself once more as one of the most remarkable bowlers that this country has ever produced. He has a positively wonderful command of the leg break.... His great height makes it difficult for the batsman to follow the flight of the ball. He is useful on every kind of wicket, whereas few bowlers of his pace are able to bowl on a sticky wicket. - JACK HOBBS, 'My Cricket Memories' (1924)
Marcuss missed his turn and Sam has 3 hours to pick his player...
Graeme Pollock - Gauteng
Appreciate Swanneh For The Genius He Is.
Bore off, seriously.
Muttiah Muralitharan (dismissed as part of a hattrick).
Mohammed Sami, WAG!!

So regarding the President / VP of USA rule. The surname( or even the 1st name?? ) of Pres / VP has to match either the 1st or 2nd name of the player. Right?
