    Love it.

    You have so many of my favourite cricketers. Jackson, McCabe, Worrell, Garner and O'Reilly would all be in my "Favourite XI all time"!
    I'll never fear you, buddy.

    Yeah, pretty much. With such a limited pool of drafters and unlimited pool of players, this was always on the cards.

    But that's only when you're going by the names on offer. The batting orders (of course) and overall team balance should be able to swing a lot of votes IMO.

    Yup the unlimited pool was not a good idea
    Oh for a strong arm and a walking stick

    The bizarreness of having Bradman at seven is offset by the fact you have four guys below him who could seriously bat. Well played there.

    Michael's team looks so messy, really throws me off

    until I see Bradman so he automatically wins my approval

    He has 3 of my top 5 all time cricketers in his team, but the batting order is all wrong.

    Agreed, hard to vote for a team that (despite being filled to the brim with gun players) doesn't address the challenge of the draft all that well
