    Every 5 years we have an election and have to decide who are the least obnoxious out of all the men. Then one gets in and they age really quickly. Which is always fun to watch.

    Right so I'm going to make it that if you're at the end of a round, you have 24 hours to pick until you get a player picked for you by the RNG. Garson has 12 hours extra this time because I didn't say this earlier, so 36 hours from morgieb's post above.

    Once the last pick comes around cant you just start the next round anyway? edit: well, for some rounds that feature a new order, anyway
    Indians can't bowl - Where has the rumour come from as I myself and many indian friends arwe competent fast bowlers ?

    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left

    The whole reason I set this up is so as we can have things like Pringle being picked ahead of Lillee. Pretty pleased with myself.

    Tony Greig. There was. 50% chance of me getting him, and a 50% chance of me getting Lillee, but I needed the extra batting.

    It said 1982, that's a major cockup from you

    Greig would be a decent choice though.
