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)

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

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.
