    Pretty even batting for these sides. Decided that WalkingWicket had the strongest batting but had to vote for Athlai as that's almost an all-time ATG bowling lineup.

    There was a team with Jardine in it and one with Larwood, and you voted for neither. What is this?

    Weldone and Pothas just about tied for first place IMO. Would have liked to vote for two teams. But since I'm a fan of Richards and Verity.......


    Great job running the Draft btw Howe

    Athlai's team has a tail which is a tad too long for my liking.

    ~

    Bowlers unpicked everywhere.

    In the early rounds people generally turned down batsmen like Compton and Border for either fast bowlers or for better batsmen. Later on people were snapping up batsmen whenever they came along, either to compensate or just to add more batting depth. So either way people generally had to turn down fast bowlers over and over again.
