This is turning out to be the most fun Draft ever.
Fred Spofforth, 'The Demon Speaks'The figures Sir Home Hordon has shown me of what Grace did in matches against me, 37 innings, 1042 runs, 28.16 average, considerably less than his general average, hears out my theory that I never had any particular difficulty in getting him out. I clean bowled him seven times, ACM Croome says that WG told him that on any wicket he never knew when I should bowl him. This may have been due in part to my artfulness......

Damn, only 76 Matches between the top 5, that has to be some sort of record. 3rd to last for the next round is really going to hurt.

I feel more or less all teams are equal (except GIMH who has picked pretty much the same team that lost last ashes 5-0 )
Come on guys. Decide - before you decide on my choices.
Guys does anyone know how much of my budget is left?
