    Just KK and Jager to come before most of us dive into the wicket-keeping mosh pit.

    From memory the only keepers picked so far are Gilchrist, Ames and Knott (mine).

    Gilchrist and Ames give you a decent advantage with the bat, both are very strong number sevens. Knott slightly below them with the bat, but still very capable.

    Should be interesting to see what order the rest of them go in. Whether people go for the best keepers, or the ones that are stronger batsmen.


    edit....Flower been taken as well.

    Waite's been picked as well.

    I've also picked Walcott and I've not 100% decided how I'm going to use him yet. If my 11th round picked rolled around and Waite was still available I was definitely going to pick Waite, but I might be able to use the position for something else if the alternative is a pretty average keeper/batsman.

    4-5 x Keepers, 6-7 batsman, and 2 bowlers are required. Unless someone has an interesting plan.

    Edit: Possibly one allrounder for PEWS

    I dare say Walcott will be at six whether he keeps or not, if that helps.

    Blakus, Monk, Watson and Eds in the lead now, in no particular order.

    Would vote for the former 3 if I had to now because Eds misspelled Ranjitsinhji

    That was me. I also have problems with;

    Erapilli Prassana
    Bagwath Chandraseka
    Sabosh Gupter
    Dilip Vensarkhar
    Mohammad Azharudinn
    and so forth.

    I'm OK with Dean Jones and Kapil Dev.

    Thanks Jager.

    There are 4 keepers I really like, all magicians with the gloves, and capable of boosting the potency of any bowling attack by 5-10%. But I think that the greatest of all by a small margin is Godfrey Evans.
