    Always knew PEWS was a closet socialist.

    Oops. My bad. Fixed.

    Technically I just voted for Vimes twice, but after looking at PEWS' team it would have made my top 3 anyway. Phew!

    I like Vimes' team, as it includes a player called Norbert.

    Woot!

    Ironically, I didn't think I'd do as well in this one as the 30K run draft, which I didn't even make the top 3...

    C'mon Jimmy... you going to do the awards ceremony?... Be sure to play the New Zealand national anthem please!

    It is a great team Zinzan, I could imagine your guys trading in their maroon caps for honorary black ones.

    Roberts & Gilchrist is a scary opening bowling attack to say the least. Back them up with Winston, the better Benjamin (slightly), the serviceable Bravo & the underrated Ramnarine, & your bowling is looking good. You have the twin towers in Lara & Richardson, who are clearly the key for your team, but what I like about your batting is that everyone in the top 6 averaged more than 30 with the bat at Test level and all have multiple Test centuries, which is saying quite a lot for a draft such as this. Well done on the win, Mr Costanza would be proud.

    People voted for you because of the name of your team IMO.

    So it only seems natural to make an Asian XI draft thread next


    but that leaves 3 teams left. An African XI draft would basically be a South African draft plus the Flowers and Streak, but what about an African plus New Zealand draft thread? That could be interesting

    Picking Lara or Headley, former more than the latter, was the wisest choice in this. You knew you were going to have some not-so-great names in the team, and who better to lead such a team.
