    Here is the only footage of Adcock bowling that I can find. After I saw his delivery at the 28 sec mark I thought - "Yep, he'll do."

    His action looks like a combination of Proctor and Marshall to me.

    Yes, Sutcliffe must have been one tough bloke.

    Brave from B Sutcliffe; think almost the same thing happened with Paynter suffering from tonsil spent time in hospital and came out to bat the next day and scored runs

    Going to be tough to select between these teams.

    Are we still waiting for a few to finish the last round?

    I sent mine a while back.

    We're waiting on Marcuss/Cevno again, I think, as it looks like kyear has sent his in.

    And it's unfair to expect Jager to wait till the 12 hours have elapsed and stay up to midnight Aussie time.

    An announcement too...

    If Cevno/Marcuss are to place in the points, I want Marcuss to be rewarded somehow, perhaps by splitting the points they receive, because Marcuss volunteered to help Cevno which was selfless and has proved time consuming for him. If you have better ideas, do tell me so we can potentially use them

    Crowe was my next batsman I was going to go for, a great selection at this stage indeed.
