    He played for "British Guiana" at the time. It only turned into Guyana in 1966.

    Aw come on. The team is known as Guyana. Surely allowed?

    Why not? Rule is a rule!

    Eds will have to simply pick another player for that particular round. Changes have to be made - simple as that

    Are you serious? The name of the FC team was British Guiana and NOT Guyana back in those days. You can check the same in his Cricinfo profile as well.

    And British Guiana doesnt start with 'G', my friend!

    Guyana IS British Guiana though. They're the same thing. One was whilst the team under British rule, the other whilst independent.

    And also, one word of British Guiana starts with 'G'. *shrugs*

    I'll let Jager and Cevno (whose clause it was) decide I guess. Both of the backups for the pick have also gone since I made the pick which is an annoyance as well.

    Well in that case we'll have to take Garner away from Blakus because Garner was a Vice President of the USA, not an actual President, and then take Gilchrist away from Marcuss because the President of the USA was Adams not Adam.

    We have already set a precedent of being a little flexible with the clauses. Therefore Guyana should be OK.

    Or put it this way. If you currently walked into the Guyana Cricket Club foyer you'd probably see a plaque on the wall listing the clubs famous players. It would be headed 'Guyana Cricket Club - Famous Players', and Walcott would be on it.

    I dont mind if Jager and Cevno allows you to keep the player. I was just going by the rule.
