If the player's role is to bowl 10 straight in the middle overs for under 40 without causing the batsmen any worries then you can't have 5 of them in a team.
Any team which doesn't take wickets will struggle to keep runs down as the innings goes on.
for the 1980s a bowler with an ER of 4 is on the higher side I think
I pick Grant Flower

So, We have thirteen teams which will be divided in two groups. One group will have six while the other will have seven teams. The top four from each group will proceed to the quarter finals.
News to me
Are you simming this?
I'd like request that my team be advertised as "Spooony/Prince EWS" too please. No way am I taking all the blame for those early picks. :p
That seems oddly repetitive to me, but ok, do as you will
Can't you just make it the top 2 teams from each group and have a semi final? Seriously the 4th placed team in the group of 6 isn't that special an achievement.
fair point NUFAN
