    I'll take Archie Jackson via the US President clause. He shares a last name with Andrew Jackson - the seventh President. Nice to get that one out the way.

    1. Archie Jackson

    4. Jacques Kallis (5)
    5. Clyde Walcott+
    6. -
    7. Keith Miller (2)
    8. Kapil Dev (3)
    9. -
    10. Michael Holding (1)
    11. Sydney Barnes (4)

    Cheers mate. Really enjoying the draft so far.

    Had real trouble with this pick - probably the most in any of the drafts thus far. Jackson definitely not the best quality player left, but the US [Vice] President clause has hardly any quality names left.

    Sincerely disappointed with the lack of pisstakes re: women's cricketers

    My first pick would've been Claire Taylor under the clause "Shares a name with a US president"

    Jackson - Gets rid of a difficult Clause and fills one of your empty top 3 batting spots at the same time. Very clever!
