    "I want to raise my hand and say one thing. Those who complain about my love for the game or commitment to the game are clueless. These are the only 2 areas where I give myself 100 out of 100."

    Gonna be pretty hard judging the quality of the random fringe players from the past, since they probably won't have much written about them. Only stats to go by in those cases.

    As many as you like (I reccomend bidding on all) but everybody gets 1 player from each round on their team.

    What if no wicket-keepers pop out of your random-generator Michael? Just a thought.

    For my own interest I looked up Harry Cave. He was a Kiwi medium pacer from the 1950s who had a bowling Strike Rate of 119 and batting average of 9.

    I'm looking forward to seeing who gets him

    Reeve's just as bad IMO. Not even that good by county standards.

    Can't afford to be too tight-arsed then morgieb.

    (Wish I'd entered this Draft in hind-sight but I found the 48 hour wait between rounds a bit daunting)

    If you want to enter, I'll add one more player from round 2 on (this would mean that you would only have 11 rounds rather than 12 to complete your team. This also applies to anyone else who wants to join before the end of round 1).

    I'll withdraw. Watson can have my spot.
