Barnes in this match revealed himself once more as one of the most remarkable bowlers that this country has ever produced. He has a positively wonderful command of the leg break.... His great height makes it difficult for the batsman to follow the flight of the ball. He is useful on every kind of wicket, whereas few bowlers of his pace are able to bowl on a sticky wicket. - JACK HOBBS, 'My Cricket Memories' (1924)
kyear to reselect seeing as he chose a player that was taken in R1.
Oh for a strong arm and a walking stick
Jus thought I would mention that although you are allowed to change your pick before the round closes, I myself am not allowed to. Whoever I go with at the start stays.
I'd just like to post at this point that I submitted my pick earlier today.
Thank you, your adoration is noted and appreciated.

Surprisingly we had no overlaps (well actually we did, but there were changes made which turned out to be pretty clever). R3 is a go now.

I would have happily bet a tenner that McGrath would be blacklisted that round, but apparently not!
Thought we are not to discuss payers not as yet selected.
Ah, apologies. Didn't know that was a rule. Edited.
At this rate, the draft will be over in a week, it's flying along. 3/12.
