    Yeah Sam! So far am happy with it but being last in next round means ALL the players from my current list will be gone

    Dammit, I was just going to pick Worrell. Using the same clause, since options are wearing thin, Peter May.

    I've got my next two picks mapped out as well. Will be devastated if they get stolen, TBH.

    1.
    2.
    3. George Headley (Immigrant)
    4. Kumar Sangakkara (Country Blackout)
    5. Peter May (Captaincy)
    6.
    7.
    8. Hedley Verity (Merchant)
    9.
    10. Dale Steyn (9th Wicket)
    11.

    There's a simple solution - find superior players from tough clauses

    I have to say it Blakus - Kanhai and Pollock batting together would be awesome to watch.
