Barnes in this match revealed himself once more as one of the most remarkable bowlers that this country has ever produced. He has a positively wonderful command of the leg break.... His great height makes it difficult for the batsman to follow the flight of the ball. He is useful on every kind of wicket, whereas few bowlers of his pace are able to bowl on a sticky wicket. - JACK HOBBS, 'My Cricket Memories' (1924)
I prefer a quick draft. I'm lucky in that I'm around my computer all day, and can check continually. But when someone always times out, it reeeally slows the process down.
Really, you only need to log on twice a day, once in the morning and once at night, to see if you're up and keep things rolling.
Devillier has the ability to show ball the right path, there are two ways to do so, 1. form where the ball is coming, 2 where the ball is going to
Amla can just hit the ball harder with the use of timing and strock
Devilliers is younger so he will learn with the passage of time
Devilliers plays in all the situations and conditons while all amla is a powerplay player
So Devillieris can be said as better
I'd say I'll be first to choose a female cricketer.....
Personally, I think that Blakus should just pick now. The odds of Cevno being on-line within the next 5-6 hours are somewhere in the realms of Avogadro's Number

I'll do the right thing and wait for Cevno. 6 hours isn't really that mush time.
With regards to Australia's best ever keeper I personally reckon it's a 3 way dogfight between Blackham, Oldfield and Tallon. Take your pick honestly
I've always considered Tallon to be the best.

I missed 4/5 picks in this and that's mostly because i don't log in into CW that much these days and there's a 12 hours limit for this draft which i ended up missing by 2/3 hours on a few occasions now.
In this type of draft it's tough to draw contingencies as there are many variable factors that keep changing and varying. For example, team balance or picking a keeper at the right time depending on other picks is important and also the division between bowlers//batsman. And then Providing someone else a list is a problem too, especially if they are competing in this, though maybe that could be done on occasions.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.
Frankly, if i knew what has happened in my life, in the past 2 weeks will happen then i wouldn't have participated at the start like i didn't in the last one. It's become bit of a burden rather than something i am enjoying now.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.
Pick whenever you can and enjoy the historical discussion/competition
I'm sorry that you've had a tough past 2 weeks. Would you like to hand the baton over to someone else again?
I really can't compare them, as I have hardly seen either of them, but from reports, both were genius.
Marcuss Trescothick via the Murali/Warne clause.
I'll do my other pick in a couple of hours or so. Everyone else to go ahead.
