    Keen to consolidate my pace battery. Andy Roberts, the mean prick. One of my favorite cricketers. I love the stories told about his two bouncers. One normal paced which the batsman'd hit for 4, and one very quick that would kill the batsman. Watch out ****s.

    (Incidentally, I now have two of the best exponents of the bouncer to have played in Roberts and Wasim. Hooke's jaw!)

    Isn't there going to be more Gold Tier players to choose from at the beginning of Round 5than at the end?

    It is about 90% probable that my preferred next choice will be gone by the time my turn comes around. Fingers crossed that the 10% probability happens.

    I don't think that you can grumble about Gavaskar-Headley-Verity-McGrath Kyear as it's a very nice team so far.

    Plus you're second in R5. So if you're after a fast bowler there's a number of brilliant choices still available.

    Your glass is definitley half-full, not half-empty.

    Just meant that every time I target a player he is immediately taken. Was just cursing my luck, really wanted that fast bowler to complement Mcgrath. Perfect pair.

    I think that's true for everyone most of the time.

    But ironically, if you did get the player you targeted every Round then the Draft would be inherently boring. Part of the fun is failing to get the player you desire, and then having to adjust your strategy as a consequence.

    It's the necessary lateral thinking in the face of failure that makes Drafting addictive.

    Sorry man, but Roberts is right up there with my favourite quicks, along with Wasim (who I have), Holding, Donald and Lillee.
