    It will be interesting to see who discovered who for possible Debut Clause candidates.

    Thought I could get Houghton, shattered.

    Changing to Fawad Alam, FC average of 57 says something, plus test average of 41 with a big ton on debut.

    1. Barry Richards
    2. Vijay Merchant
    3. Viv Richards
    4. Stan McCabe
    5. Mohammad Azharuddin
    6. Fawad Alam
    7. Godfrey Evans
    8. Gubby Allen
    9. Shane Warne
    10. Andy Roberts
    11. Glenn McGrath

    Now, my strangest draft selection so far- Wayne Phillips, using the highest score on debut clause. Will be my keeper, and also a very good batsman to have at 7 or 8.


    MONK'S XI

    1. Arthur Morris
    2. Saeed Anwar
    3. Clem Hill
    4. Greg Chappell
    5. Wally Hammond
    6. Clive Lloyd *
    7. Kapil Dev
    8. Wayne Phillips +
    9. Alan Davidson
    10. Allan Donald
    11. Clarrie Grimmett

    Loved watching Wayne Phillips bat in the 80s as he had effortless timing.

    Besides Hendriks I also had the following players penciled in;

    Romesh Kaluwitharana (good keeper and ODI pinch hitter)
    David Bairstow (Yorkshire captain and deputy to Bob Taylor/Alan Knott)
    Dennis Gamsy (Natal's keeper and deputy to Dennis Lindsay)
    Ashley Mallett (vastly under-rated Aussie spinner)
    Darren Gough (under-rated English quick)
    Andrew Hudson (tough SA opening bat)
    Lala Amarnath (Indian Pre-War Captain and all-rounder)

    Could have slotted in as a keeper, middle order bat or opener. Preferred the better keeper though considering my batting strength and the presence of Stewart.

    Yeah Darren Gough was the one I had in mind for Howe_zat. I also found Jack Iverson, who never surpassed 1 not out. Would of been an amusing selection

    I also had Tich Freeman (English leggie from the 20's) and Jack Hearne (pre-war medium pacer with tremendous FC stats)

    Going to be interesting to see if the teams with one obvious weaklink but very good everywhere else will go well in the voting.
    NRL Tipping Champion 2014

    Over 0.2: Putland to Nevill, OUT, no run, full ball swings in late to crash into his pads. Nevill is almost falling over trying to get bat on it but can't. Huge shout for LBW and Umpire Martell eventually raises the finger! P.Nevill - lbw b:Putland 0 (1 ball, 1 minute).

    I think that's been my team, could have been a potential winner if I'd found Miandad instead of Azharuddin though.

    Voting thread will be up tonight unless a majority of people want the extra round with no clause, in order to even up the advantage.

    No, I based my strategy on the assumption that we were only using the clauses listed.

    Marcuss asked that question prior to picking Jackson relatively early on in the piece. Otherwise he wouldn't have chose him when he did.

    I let a lot of Gold Tier players go in choosing Hendricks during R3 because I thought that Dan might pick him in R4. So, I'm in a similar situation.

    Hence, those of us who pre-planned our stategy early in the Draft will be unfarely 'punished' by a twelve round IMO.
