    Voted for Nuf, Camo, and morgieb.

    Dan was my next preference. Hard to believe he hasn't a single vote.

    Voted for ONIY, Morgieb and NUFAN.

    I like the ATGs in Morgieb's and NUFAN's teams, but slightly prefer ONIY's overall as it is the most balanced side. The batting lineup is exceptionally strong with solid openers and an attacking middle-order that bats down to No.8 or 9. The attack lacks a 'gold tier' bowler but is consistently good all the way through. The combination of Willis-Clarke-Flintoff-Harbie (off-spin)-Borde (leg-spin)-Chappell has more than enough pace and variety to knock over most batting orders on most wickets.

    Three excellently drafted teams with NUFAN bringing his team back from the dead with a deal of good strategy and luck in the later rounds.

    kyear, ohno, morgie.

    Close run thing. Kyear has a gun top 4, I really like the look of them, plus elite bowlers in Roberts and Tayfield. Tremlett, Hawke and Toshack make it a fairly strong unit capable of tying things down and striking regularly. Trumper and Warner would just be amazing as an opening combo, and I am a big fan of Harvey and Moyo. Boucher is quality. The only criticism is it looks slightly unbalanced with Boucher at #6 and Roberts at #7, but they'd win tests no probs.

    ohno's team has star players, and is very well balanced. Excellent frontline bowlers and handy back ups. Like kyear, the top 4 (actually 5) is elite. ohno drafted some antipodean greats in his top 5. High quality keeper and outstanding cordon, along with a great leader.

    morgie's team is just solid all the way thru. Combative and competitive.

    The smartest thing to do in CW drafts, I have gathered, is to pick a) Sylvester Clarke b) Imran Khan c) Harold Larwood and d) Andrew Flintoff

    You instantly guarantee a ****load of votes for yourself

    e) Milburn & Butt - not really going to strike fear into the opposing opening bowlers.

    Sylvers and Larwood (and maybe Stan McCabe) basically buys you Fred's vote as I understand it.
