    Nice team.

    The pace of Mashall and Garner, the swing of Kapil Dev, the off-spin of Tayfield, and then 2 left-arm spinners as the 5th bowler make for a very potent attack.

    And probably the most aggressive top order of all the teams. Richards, Greenidge, Macartney and Lara batting together is just insane!

    Jack Hobbs
    Vijay Merchant
    Ricky Ponting (c)
    Everton Weekes (s)
    Ted Dexter (5)
    Martin Crowe
    Dennis Lindsay (w/k)
    Shane Warne (4) (s)
    John Snow (3)
    Colin Croft (2)
    Allan Donald (1)

    Richie Richardson

    Pretty decent effort, the Master and Merchant should do wonders on covered pitches, Ponting is master first drop and Weekes was the best batsman of his era (between Hutton and Sobers) and an attacking genius. Donald, Croft and Warne spear heads the attack. The weakness of my last team was the batting weakness of the 7-9, think I addressed that with Lindsay, Warne and Snow. Warne and Dexter are the All Rounders and as usual there is an excellent cordon of Lindsay, Weekes, Ponting and Warne.

    Yes a great team, Worrell was a better pacer than spinner though and I think he is a better option at three than Macartney. Just think that Dev is a realative weak link as the third seamer, but that's probably just me.

    Agreed on Kapil.

    2.Herbert Sutcliffe
    3.Viv Richards
    4.Graeme Pollock
    5.Kumar Ranitsinhji
    6.Kumar Sangakkara+
    7.Warwick Armstrong*
    8.Peter Pollock
    9.Hugh Trumble
    10.Frederick Spofforth
    11.Sydney Barnes

    12.John Waite

    Kapil Dev's Strike Rate is 63.9 which isn't bad for a swing bowler.

    In comparison, Maurice Tate was 80.7 and Alec Bedser was 67.4.

    Kapil also has the advantage of being a capable batsman. Although Maurice Tate was pretty handy with the bat in his time.

    Personally, I prefer sub-60 fast bowlers, but who am I to say that having a slower swing bowler in your team isn't an excellent contrast to extreme pace.

    I think that some batsman like Hayden and Gooch prefer straight up-and-down fast bowling to the ball moving around. So, if I were Ed's captain I may even open the attack with Marshall and Kapil Dev when playing KKs team. Especially if it's overcast.

    BTW kyear, really strong side as well. I really must pick John Snow in my next draft.

    Really looking forward to season two of the League now. This draft has been an excellent way to kick things off, relatively fast-paced and very even.

    Would have Dravid at 3 and Hammond at 4 if it were up to me, but that's a fascinating middle order.

    Agreed - Dravid in his optimum position, Hammond suited to 4, Pietersen to 5 and Sobers in his preferred slot too

    Kapil was a better bowler than his stats suggest. Definitely a good choice as third seam option, especially considering you have Marshall and Garner to partner with him, and a few good spin options. Balances your team nicely.

    I suppose this is what we call a win-win.
