    I have Lawry, Barrington and Imran in both the first Classic draft and this one. Interesting to notice patterns like this in my picking style.

    I've noticed that as a general rule....

    Himannv's teams seem to be blend of defensive batsman and attacking bowlers.

    Kingkallis' teams tend to be attacking from top to bottom and normally contain two allrounders.

    Monk's and Jager's teams tend to be a blend of classical and modern players.

    Blakus' teams tend to be the most interesting with eclectic batting line-ups and bowling attacks.

    Kyear's and Andy's teams tend to be well balanced and include three conventional fast bowlers and a dependable spinner.

    True Watto. I always go for 2 all-rounders as I am 'NEVER' confident or comfortable with just 4 complete bowlers. 2 all-rounders means I get an additional bowler as well.

    About batting, I usually mix things when it comes to aggression. Hayden gives me the aggressive opener I need to partner with my champs I usually pick like Hutton or in this case, Sutcliffe.

    That's a fairly good analysis; I agree with most of that.

    I tend to like picking ultra defensive batsmen in drafts. Players like Barrington, Border, Waugh, Boycott, Lawry, Dravid, etc. are the kind of players I'd rely on if I were to pick a team to represent me irl.

    I do like players like Viv and Lara, but I rarely tend to pick them as often as others do. Not many people pick these defensive players earlier on, so I'm free to pick them after I strengthen my bowling attack with the first two or three picks. That way I end up with the batting lineup that I want and a fairly good bowling attack.
