"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."
- Sachin Tendulkar, as told in an interview published in Bengali newspaper Anandabazar Patrika after his 100th International century (translated by weldone)
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..
Yes best XI will be voted on (and potentially simmed)
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.
Barnes in this match revealed himself once more as one of the most remarkable bowlers that this country has ever produced. He has a positively wonderful command of the leg break.... His great height makes it difficult for the batsman to follow the flight of the ball. He is useful on every kind of wicket, whereas few bowlers of his pace are able to bowl on a sticky wicket. - JACK HOBBS, 'My Cricket Memories' (1924)
Him/Her and 2 others still haven't submitted bids but am interested in hearing feedback from others on this
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.

marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.
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.
