But maybe no one will go for Sobers for the same reasons, and so I should go for him instead.....

    But, I'm going to be a weakling and go for Miller instead....."



    In the end, very happy to secure Miller for the first time in a CW draft, as he will provide plenty of balance for my side.


    Had everyone except one person gone for someone other than Bradman, I would have probably said that we all became a little too sneaky. Luckily we got away with it though, because having Bradman would give a side a clear advantage with batting.
    Oh for a strong arm and a walking stick

    We both picked Hadlee and he told me we both failed as soon as I picked his player. I have no doubts about his integrity.

    One thing I haven't fully planned is what should happen when a player times out. If they do, it becomes unfair for them to simply choose whoever they want because they will be uninhibited by other players... what do you guys think?

    They pick 2 players in the next Round.

    It is still possible that they will lose both their players if they clash with other peoples selections. That's fair.

    Great idea, watson. I'll use your idea if the situation arises. In the meantime...

    Round 1 is complete.

    R1
    Jager: Jack Hobbs
    AndyZaltzHair: Viv Richards
    Eds: Shane Warne
    watson: Sydney Barnes
    kingkallis: Dennis Lillee
    Monk: Keith Miller
    Blakus: Adam Gilchrist
    Himannv: Curtly Ambrose
    Cevno: Imran Khan
    kyear2: Malcolm Marshall
    MrPrez: Wally Hammond
    Valer: Muttiah Muralitharan

    Voodoo: Garfield Sobers, Richard Hadlee, Donald Bradman, Bill O’Reilly

    Time to send in your R2 selections.
