    Massive apologies. I hadn't realised Cevno picked when he had.

    Alec Bedser

    Best bowling attack, very good openers and keeper/cordon. On the other hand middle order lacks an alpha male. Excellent team.

    Yeah, agree that the batting order just lacks someone I'd back to really stand up and dominate at this level. Very good team though. Will benefit from a 'rate the teams from best to worst' scoring system rather than a 'pick your winner' IMO.

    After having my team slandered to death, I have been forced to revise my strategy I pick Matt Prior as the best wicketkeeper batsman going around by far

    Jager's XI (currently)
    1. Alec Stewart
    2. Douglas Jardine
    3. Neil Harvey
    4. Sachin Tendulkar
    5. Dudley Nourse
    6. Doug Walters
    7. Matt Prior
    8. Wilfred Rhodes
    9. Harold Larwood
    10. Curtly Ambrose
    11. Waqar Younis

    Would probably bat Larwood ahead of Rhodes, and you've got it bang on.

    Great idea for a voting system actually.

    The positives would be that it rewards an ultra-consistent mid-range team. The negatives would be that it could be very time-consuming, plus without a poll on the main page I'd imagine less people would take interest in giving their thoughts.

    The current system is voting on the three strongest teams out of the twelve in a poll. Does anyone have a preference/idea about this?

    Jager Meister's original concept was for the first 6 best teams to get points. I think that if we take our 6 favourite teams and rate them 1-6 then that would be an alright thing.

    I don't really want to tell Andy, or whoever, that their team is the worst and should come last. Not that Andy's team IS the worst and should come last, but you get what I mean.
