    watson taking Procter first round

    I remember at the start of the first season we were discussing whether some players would emerge from the shadows and become more appreciated by CWers. Procter was 35th pick (late R3) that season and now he's a first round pick - great to see
    Oh for a strong arm and a walking stick

    It was more to do with how I generally tend to take a bowler first up but yes, probably

    There's also a whole miriad of keepers that I'd love to pick but haven't been able to yet because they aren't quite good enough to bat at No.7. Procter's a good No.7.

    Cevno's having fun in the other Draft, picking SF Barnes, and counting down from 150 which sounds a lot but isn't.

    I think we're just going with an eleven man draft unless TBY comes back and feels like catching up, so you're up again.

    Kyear did well to pick at all. It's currently 3 am in Trinidad and I'd say he's been well and truly lulled off to sleep against the gentle rythmn of the steel drums and ukulele

    Urgh.

    This opening round or so definitely much different to what I expected. I think the standard of drafting has risen quite dramatically since Season 1.

    Everyone is obviously just on their toes because I'm picking for Marcuss now. Only explanation.
