    It seems from the video that your team has the fast leg-spin of Barnes and the slow, more conventional leg-spin + googlies of Robins to complement.

    Haha I see what you mean by a very "Jager-ish" pick, Jager.

    As for me, I'll go for the greatest captain of all-time in Douglas Jardine, to complete my XI. Would love to see him with this bowling attack at his disposal.

    Undecided on batting order as things stand. Will probably open with Jardine and push Jackson to 3. Or maybe Kallis could move to 3, with Pietersen to 4 and Jardine to 5.

    Wow, I had my money on Stan McCabe in the No.3 position with Miller as captain.

    Sorry for the irregularity.

    Been a pretty busy couple of weeks for me, and mostly i log in from my phone on CW these days and can't do proper research on it. Will try and do my picks today.

    Yeah, considered it (Jager to c' ), but a) Jardine and b) have been trying to make Miller have a 'free role' of sorts, for the whole draft - minimal pressure and all that.

    This is no excuse as it's not as if we are researching how to get a manned space-craft to Mars. Also, one-off time-outs are fine and expected, but your failures are routine and par for the course.

    All you need is 3-4 simple contingencies, jot them down somewhere, and then e-mail/SMS one of them to someone when it's your turn. You can liason with anyone on CricketWeb. It doesn't even have to be Jager. They keep an eye on Draft thread for you and then nominate a player on your behalf.

    I have concluded that you are either disorganised or lack the ability to forward-plan Cevno, with the underlying assumption being that you are in the draft because you want to be.

    Amazing that Oldfield hasn't been selected in a previous draft. Imo he is Australia's best pure gloveman ever, and he was no dud with the bat, with an average over 20.

    Good pick!

    I actually think you have the strongest team Michael, with Sobers and Botham as ARs to balance things nicely...
