    Is there much point waiting for Cabinet who hasn't been around for ages? GIMH should just play thru IMO.

    A 500 limit allows for nearly 45 Tests per player on average. So, after 6 rounds the number of Tests should tally about 270. However, I currently tally 319, which is 49 more than it should be. Will need to address the budget sooner or later as I'd like to go into the last round with a good amount of Tests up my sleeve. Didn't bother worrying about runs or wickets because I'm too lazy, and Marcuss was overly generous. But I could be wrong there.

    230 Matches, 17,561 Runs, 327 Wickets.

    Using what i think is Watson's formula, -20 (Edit: Beaten by Watson) We are picking 12 aren't we, meaning we should have about 250 matches left?

    Discounting the 12th man, you are bang on average oniy after 6 rounds. 230 remaining Tests is a good amount to play with and allows an average of 46 Tests for the remaining 5 rounds. Not bad.

    Btw. I'm envious of 'Budget Man' Michael who can pretty much pick who he wants from now on. Apart from the likes of perhaps Tendulkar and Kallis?

    Yeah, probably is sensible to discount the 12th man. Now to make the most of this good position

    Ironically, if i had gone for another cheap pick instead of Hadlee, me and Michael would have been in a pretty similar position, except that W.G Grace would of put his side a whole league above mine.

    How do you think im feeling? This pick is going to be make or break, having to weigh up team balance against another impact player.

    are you serious
    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
