    Yes, McCabe had one of the best hook-shots in the game.

    Damn it.

    I just realised given my all rounder choice I'm better off going with 2 spinners given I could hold both of them back for a round and get better batsman.

    Too late I guess. Hopefully I hit Voodoo.

    Not only is 12 hours a joke but I'm only helping out for Cevno so am trying to give him as much chance as possible to make his own picks.

    Most of us are busy, I'm doing stuff for work now and it's 5:30am.

    It's rather a matter of computer access. If you do not have regular access to a computer then you probably shouldn't be participating in Drafts as it's unfair to other people.

    Incidently, I think that a 36 hour turn-around time per Round is reasonable if we assume a 'clash' of players. And so is 48 hours if there are 2 'clashes' etc.

    It's 24 for the original picks, 12 for the repicks - what's so bad about that?

    R7 got messy at the end - lots of competition for Greenidge, Kanhai and May

    Hey, I'm not participating.. I'm filling in to help somebody else.

    In a normal draft you're probably expected to be online at some point during one 12 hour period out of 10 (number of participants). Not once every 12 hours.
    That's what is unreasonable.
    If it was 24 hours per selection then there'd be at most 72 hours between picks.
    You're telling me you pick that regularly in a normal draft? gmafb

    Yeah, seemingly making assumptions about what is 'easy' for others comes under that category for you
