I am often asked who was the best, fastest or toughest bowler I ever faced and I quite enjoy giving different answers every time. Well, it keeps me amused anyway –but the underlying point is that one could revise this whole list on a daily basis and never really be right and never really be wrong - DAVID GOWER
07. Mike Procter
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
I assume it is Cevno's pick then mine 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
3. George Headley
11. Glenn Mcgrath
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.
