    Darren Stevens

    Went Murtagh and then realised he had gone much earlier. Wanted a bowler but there are probably about 10-15 all about pretty samey in terms of their usefullness to the team.

    Stevens adds real firepower to the middle order and his useful seamers could work well in helpfull conditions. Another who can bat over the 3 formats. Not ideal given the rest of the players in my squad so far but I think he's definite value at this stage. Gonna have a nice 40 over team imo.

    FC Team

    1.Lumb
    2.
    3.Trott
    4.
    5.Morgan
    6.Stevens
    7.Stokes

    9.
    10.Kerrigan
    11.Finn

    Yeah, I considered Stevens but he's probably the last thing my team needs really. Agree with you on seamers too, there's a bunch who are all much of a muchness but I thought Napier was a good shout for me. Genuine wicket taker in Limited Overs and his record in the Championship since 2008 is pretty impressive. More than handy with the bat too which is what swung me towards him rather than a few other options.

    Do I open with Bell/Allenby in the LO stuff?

    Bell imo. He's the class act. Give him the most time and let him bat the innings. Him and Davies at the top could cause some damage. Allenby has batted a decent amount in the middle order in the 40 over game and Bell hasn't really succeeded in the middle order for England.

    Allenby is also more likely to hit boundaries against the old ball with the field back later on as well IMO.

    Howe's 12 hours are up by my count, so I'll take Luke Wright and Mark Davies

    2. Joe Root
    3.
    4. Ravi Bopara
    5.
    6. Luke Wright
    7. Jos Buttler +
    8.
    9. Ryan Sidebottom
    10. Graham Onions
    11. Mark Davies

    OD Side:
    1. Luke Wright
    2. Varun Chopra
    3.
    4. Joe Root
    5. Ravi Bopara
    6. Jos Buttler +
    7.
    8.
    9. Ryan Sidebottom
    10. Graham Onions

    Not sure whether to open with Compton in the OD stuff or open with KP and slot Compton into the middle order.

    When KP returns he will be the banana..

    Carbs is turning himself into a dasher in OD cricket so keep it as it is IMO.

    Murray Goodwin and Andrew Gale
    And we still haven't walked in the glow of each other's majestic presence.

    Alfonso Thomas - Kinda long in the tooth but still a consistent performer and one of the premier T20 bowlers going around. Can still hold a bat so add a bit of depth to the tail.



    and re Wright. Basically forgot him. Gotta be a better player than Stevens who I selected last round. Only problem with Wright is his fitness record and dodgy knees. Really hasn't played consistently for a long time.
