    What are the chances that 26 regular openers will appear in the 12 rounds? BTW, I'm interested in knowing how long it took to put all the players into random.org ??

    I would have just used statsguru who has the random 30 players and just include the first 13 of the names who have actually played Test Cricket. The list includes under 19's, woman, ODI etc players.

    Not bad, Aamer Sohail will do for the amount I paid.

    The coming rounds should be more interesting as we now have an idea of what people are bidding

    Better round.

    Didn't pay much for Hick and he had moments where he didn't underachieve so I'm not complaining.
    5-0

    A bid of 3.1 million? Holy cow, someone must have been really desperate not to get Hairy Cave Man.

    Somehow I think that these names are randomly generated inside Michael's head rather than by a computer. Which is great because the imagination is awesome.

    Also reasonably happy with Ashley Mallett: Ave = 29.84, SR = 75.6, and a great gully fieldsman.

    Good start. Rangana Herath is a good spinner for this kind of a draft.

    Pat cummins seems like a steal for that price
    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

    How do you know how much I paid for him?

    Pat Cummins is seriously unproven though, not surprised you paid very little for him. Can count the number of FC games he's played on one hand..
