    'the low-scoring partner in a century partnership for the 10th wicket.'

    It's pretty clear.

    It wasn't specified in the clause that it was only tests.

    My bad then. I actually looked at Sachin in that Test match and went "I can't pick Sachin because Zaheer has the lower score of the two batsman - 248 v 75".

    Yeah but now I see the semantics more clearly. For some ridiculous reason if the phrase had said 'lower-scoring partner' then I would have picked Sachin straight away. Must be my strange brain.

    This I do disagree with at we've never mixed Test stats with ODI stats before. It's either one or the other. Aldo has just set a CC precedent.

    But if everyone else is happy then I'm happy. Can't criticise someone too much for breaking tradition.

    Sorry to create a confusion, I will change the pick if harsh makes it tests only. Since it wasn't specified anywhere so far, I took the liberty to consider all formats.

    BTW, I think we have had all formats before in the same draft. The "Decades Draft" that had a player from all decades since the 1880s, in that the rule was performances across all formats would be considered not just tests. I played that one so I thought if nothing is specified it means all formats count.

    Aldo, great pick. I didn't specify, so my bad I guess

    Oh well, the running myth on CW that it's Tests only unless stated otherwise is well and truly busted. It really isn't "genius" when you decide to go against established tradition. There's a reason Harsh wasn't questioned about it before, and it wasn't because no one else thought of it.

    Hey, guys, I am not a 100% about this. I didn't mean to include ODIs, and as such, I do think Aldo's pick is a little iffy.
