    Polly Umrigar to finalise my middle order and bowl a few off breaks if needed.

    Was mortified when I realised I'd held the draft up so as I wasn't at home posted on my phone - bloody predictive text - still it's been taught the great man's name now!

    Here is a rare and fabulous video from 1950 as a diversion till the next player is selected;

    Enjoy!

    (Howe now has 3 picks I think. Can't remember him contributing in Rounds 8 or 9)

    Excellent!

    Big LOL @ the Aussie players fighting for the stumps at the end of the game. Haha!

    It is highly unlikely that Howe will pick in the next 2 hours because it's becoming late evening in the UK.

    Therefore, I think that's it's OK for Pothas to pick ASAP. Otherwise the Draft will held up un-necessarily for several hours during the UK nightime.

    Just my opinion.

    (Assuming that Pothas is currently in SE London, as I'm guessing that's where Surbiton is)

    SW London, so close enough.

    My pick will not make any difference to Howe anyway so will go ahead and pick Jim Parks.
