    Cheers. I'm quite happy with the depth of bowling options I have in the top order, and Procter should be more than capable of batting at 7. I'm trying to play around with the batting order a little bit - I think Miller would be good at taking advantage of the powerplay, and bumping Macartney up to open allows him the maximum time to exploit the aggressive fields.

    One of my favorite cricketers of all time- Archie Jackson

    And Monty Noble, a fine hard hitting all rounder who completes my bowling attack nicely.

    Bill Johnston -- Variety, in a draft of 12 the ability to adapt to the type of pitch is critical. Also noticably more economical than his peers, with the ability to move it both ways.

    Nice pick Valer. Johnston is sometimes forgotten behind his more illustrious contemporaries. Great team man too.

    Spreadsheets don't forget... (Only half joking -- I find I draft better with a spreadsheet).

    Jackson a gun pick. Will be interesting to see how many Aussies are selected eventually- I'd imagine lots more than any other nation

    England will be / is close. Tbh I think it has more to do with the time period than anything else.

    I considered him, but decided against it due to his running between the wickets.
