    voted Red Hill, weldone and AndrewB


    AndrewB has arguably the two strongest picks possible in Learie Constantine and Gilbert Jessop, two players who despite only averaging around 20, always batted in the middle order and are known for heroic batting feats 100 years down the road

    Voted for the teams with the better batting lineups which I feel is critical in this exercise. Nufan the best one by a few miles.

    stphndbsn and AndrewB the other two. Would've voted for myself tbh but people throw a fit when I do that

    This is where Red Hill's pick of the Imran Khan playing today, not the great needs to be identified here for the people who were not part of the draft. OS, I went the opposite.. Picked the better bowling lineups, since all of the teams statistically should score around 250..

    anil, slifer and weldone got a vote from me.

    Shh don't complain against Red Hill's integrity. He may abuse you for that.

    Yeah, I did think it was a bit harsh. The fact that Imran Khan was listed to bat at 7 seems to be a bit tacital as Imran Khan has not showed any signs that he is a good bat. Holding was handy, just my opinion.

    Also lol at Ian Botham not being one of the 6 designated bowlers for Slifer.

    Great draft to spectate on this one. Really solid concept that threw up some uncommon selections & got a lot of people thinking. My votes went to OS, RH & AndrewB.

    hey everyone…I am no where near winning this draft at this point of time. The Imran Khan I selected is this one….Imran Khan | Pakistan Cricket | Cricket Players and Officials | ESPN Cricinfo, not the great Pakistani captain/allrounder

    You can stop whinging now weldone. Everything should be clear.

    Do I have the worst ever opening partnership to win one of these drafts?

    For this draft I just decided early on that all of the teams are going to be able to make roughly 250, so I'll go for a strong bowling attack which will make it hard to not pick in a top 3.
