    I'm sorry but I feel you meant Hayden and Gilchrist.

    Yes, maybe but to say 5 of them would mean 175 is ludicrous IMO.

    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
    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta

    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.

    No.

    There would be a poll for each group where everyone has to vote for the best four teams. The four teams with most number of votes go through.

    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.

    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.

Particularly lower down the order in case you need someone to chase a target and hit big.
    I think Lloyd is quite capable of going after the bowling. His strike rate is high for the era he played in imo. I also feel that Fairbrother packed a punch when he needed to and he's well suited to this format. Backed by some of those bowlers I think they should go alright if hitting big is necessary.
