    Such a damned liar that Daemon. Will do anything to win a contest
    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

    We are gonna be judged on the basis of best playing eleven right? I mean we are allowed a junk player right?

    I have done my bidding on that assumption..

    Since everyone bar daemon has responded fairly promptly it may be worthwhile considering reducing the time between rounds to 24 hours. I think that 24 hours is managable.

    Let's keep it as 48 hours, but let's finish a round as soon as everyone (except Smali, he's a lazy bitch as per experience from an earlier draft ) sends in their bids IMO.

    I'd particularly like 48 hours mainly because of weekends. I'm generally busy with my life on Saturdays and Sundays, and don't often come online.

    And Daemon is a 'Him' btw.

    From my experience of running this sort of thing, there needs to be a reasonable time between rounds to a) allow everyone to have time to submit as non-submission can ruin someone's team and b) allow the person running it time to actually keep on top of things, it's not a simple thing to run.

    Yes exactly my point (I've run it too )..

    It should be kept as 48 hours but if all submit before that time, and Michaelf7777777 is ready with all his calculations etc then he can post the results for a round before that time.

    Hmm, odd. Could you check your junk mail? I'll send another mail once I get home.

    None of the players in the list is a wicket-keeper.

    So will there be a special round with a list of just wicket-keepers as it is very unlikely that 13 keepers will appear randomly in 12 rounds?

    Otherwise it's inevitable that some teams will end up without a wicket-keeper which doesn't seem fair/right? Or, we'll all have to make bids of several million for that one-armed keeper from Swasiland who dropped 14 catches during the only Test that he played in the 1880s because he had gout and couldn't bend his knees properly - just because he's the only one on show. That doesn't seem fair/right either.
