    Got respect for Shoaib though. Seems to be a gutsy opener that takes some shifting.

    Draft ran for 29 days- 696 hours.

    156 players were selected.

    Means a player was selected on average about every 4.5 hours, which is pretty good considering different countries/time zones the participants are in.

    Actually that's a pretty good TAT.

    Also, there were 4 complaints made during the Draft concerning apparent 'slowness' - 3 were minor, and 1 was major. The major one may have been me. My apologies.
    This means that an annoying whinge occured about every 174 hours, which is also pretty good considering.

    Couldn't edit for some reason so I'm quoting it to include the captain.

    No that we're done I can say that I'm surprised that Paul Reiffel and Dilip Doshi didn't get a run. Reiffel has excellent stat's because of his unvarying accuracy (handy No.8 batsman as well), and Doshi's class was obvious by watching him in action.
