lol.. seems fairly standard.. those who got good ones think it is a good question, I did not and I think it was a rough question..
To be honest, tough questions makes the 'sheep' drafts interesting. So I guess it's a good question even if I failed to get my player twice.

It is also alleged that in the 1st Test against England, Vizzy offered Mushtaq Ali a gold watch to run out Vijay Merchant.
Worst test captain ever?

How else could you explain the clashes in the 'Subcontential Question'? By rights it should be all done and dusted by now for the simple reason that there are numerous excellent players to choose from. The pool is relatively enormous.

“I'm writing a book on magic”, I explain, and I'm asked, “Real magic?” By real magic people mean miracles, thaumaturgical acts, and supernatural powers. “No”, I answer: “Conjuring tricks, not real magic”. Real magic, in other words, refers to the magic that is not real, while the magic that is real, that can actually be done, is not real magic.”

Everyone was bound to go for one of the four Indian spinners. I'm just disappointed I didn't go for Hazare first up. I was going to, but second guessed myself.
All-in-all I would guess that the 'Subcontinental' pool of acceptable players is about 4-5 times larger than the 'AEIOU' pool.
But that's just my opinion.
BTW I'll try not to clash with your picks again. Seems to be a bad habit.

Thanks for giving out sheep guys. With the AEIOU question, personally think that was a fair few middle of the road, to decent players who demanded selection which no one has mentioned so far, so I'm pretty comfortable with the question. If I had to change something, I would have made it question 3 and had the not out the fifth question, but making the questions challenging is good IMO.
We are just waiting on harsh again..
