    No one ever talks about 'the weak, silent type'. When's their moment?

    Steven Finn - Plays all 3 formats for England. Has been very good in ODI and T20 until very recently and even with his erratic form still manages to average less than 30 in test cricket. Good to have a strike bowler for the flat wickets

    Controversial one but I will go with James Taylor, averages 48 in CC, 50 in 40 over cricket with a SR of 82 and 36 in T20 with a SR of 115. I toyed with the idea of Bairstow but his 40 over career has been very unimpressive thus far. Morgan/Bopara not good enough CC batters for me. I don't see any value for bowlers at this point.

    Definitely fine imo. Scores loads of runs for fun in each format in county cricket, fields well, ever improving. Now that the best English players are out of the way the decisions are much more subjective.

    Don't really know standard rules for drafts but isn't naming of the undrafted a no no.TBH I'm no regular drafter so I've got no idea but I should have listed it in the original rules

    Think it's more important later in the draft, when it really gets to the deep end of cricket knowledge. Everyone knows who the alternatives to James Taylor are.

    I'm going to go with another pick that could be controversial and go for Chris Woakes. Not really good enough to be a test cricketer yet, but he's a proven champion in county cricket and is always up there for MVP in division one of the Championship. Gives me a number 7 batsman capable of scoring centuries, which also gives me the option of five bowlers, and an opening bowler capable of bowling sustained tight spells. Not quite as good in the shorter formats, but again means I don't really have to worry about an all-rounder in the strongest XI anymore.

    Gah, considered going with him over Onions but thought he'd last. Damn.

    I reckon JB is more value from the outset, but only because he can keep wicket.
