“I'm writing a book on magic”, I explain, and I'm asked, “Real magic?” By real magic people mean miracles, thaumaturgical acts, and supernatural powers. “No”, I answer: “Conjuring tricks, not real magic”. Real magic, in other words, refers to the magic that is not real, while the magic that is real, that can actually be done, is not real magic.”
― Lee Siegel, 'Net of Magic: Wonders and Deceptions in India'
01. Len Hutton
03. Walter Hammond
08. Andy Roberts
09. Dennis Lillee
Burned a good Clause I know, but Roberts partnering Lillee with the new ball was simply too hard to resist. I'm not good with temptation.
May live to regret it.
Ricky Ponting - Dismissed as Part of Hat Trick
Was gonna take Len Hutton for my next Pick.

03. Ricky Ponting
07. Aubrey Faulkner
08. Richard Hadlee
09. Alec Bedser
Should get a good balance now.
Any chance of the R5/R6 order?
Might be good considering the nature of this draft to finalise all the round orders now. It's going to get tricky to finish teams well if you aren't sure where you sit in the order in the last three or four rounds.
But either way, it's good fun!
Interesting distribution of clauses so far.
Yeah, was on my phone at the time though and searching for the various criteria's on that is a mess.Incidently Cevno, you could picked Hutton at the same time you visited the Domestic Indian Cricket thread and posted - 'Good innings by Robin Bist so far in the Irani trophy'.
Also, in any case i was torn between Faulkner and Hutton for different reasons and selected Ponting first so it didn't matter.
Clause: Dismissed as part of hattrick
