    Really versatile bowling attack you have there. The inclusion of Miller, Dev, Kallis and Walcott as quality all rounders means you have a fair bit of flexibility now. Well played!
    I was so close to leaving him until Round 7 because of how broad the clause is, but he was just head and shoulders ahead of anyone else left so I went with my gut. Always love having a strong bowling attack.

    And, yeah. It's worked well because I can effectively 'hide' a player now if I need to, as the balance of the rest of the side is good.

    And Eds can use SF Barnes as a spinner if he wants to. The team has so much flexibility.

    With a good opener or two you could easily win this Draft!

    Allen's overall SR was 54.1 and 64.7 against Australia. A lot lower than I had assumed.

    Appears to be an under-rated player, especially as he bowled against some pretty powerful Aussie batsman - Bradman, McCabe etc,

    There's a small matter of G.Chappell and Lara in the middle-order too.

    I'm going to get the "dismissed by Warne AND Murali" clause out of the way. Could get tricky as it excludes all of the great Aust and SL batsmen of the last 20 or so years.

    Yes, that reminds me; I must make another appointment with my Psychologist. Apparently I've been diagnosed as having PDDSD - Post Drafting Disappointment and Stress Disorder.
