Forcing people to use a certain clause in their XI is a bit... :/
If you picked a clause where 0 good players can be picked then it's your fault if everyone uses it to pick their 12th man, quite frankly.
"If that Swann lad is the future of spin bowling in this country, then we're ****ed." - Nasser Hussain, 1997.
Right now everybody can just leave that clause till the last and then pick 11 out of 11 in the other ones.
Either we should make it compulsory to include in 11 or Jager can change that clause. I prefer the former personally, but either would be better.

I just assumed that everyone would make the women cricketer their 12th 'man'. Didn't think for a second that it would be compulsory to have a women in the actual XI. Sounds too much like 'Affirmative Action' ideology from the Clinton administration for mine. And I'm a political conservative.
Nothing against Jager BTW.

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)
But for Jager's clause, everybody will automatically use it for their reserve to be on the safe side as their is no concrete way of comparing.
This is quite a pointless debate because it really doesn't matter whether you have the female in the first XI or not. Whoever you pick with that clause isn't going to affect your votes or how good your team is perceived to be - nobody knows has a clue about any of them.
No offence, but I think it's a terrible idea for a clause.
A good compromise would be that the 12th women IS rated. She has too appear on the Voting thread.
Incidently, don't you love sports/forums dominated by blokes as it's like a time warp to the 1950s. I'm about to pass out laughing here

I don't think there is. Most people will have to rely on stats alone, and we all know that's an absolute crapshoot.
