    The rules are, so far:

    1) There are only 9 players.
    2) The choosing of countries is strictly first in, first serve.
    3) The first player to sign up may select one player of any country. The second then picks, and so forth, until the ninth player has picked his first player.
    4) The second wave of selections then goes ahead in reverse order, with the person who picked last in the first round picking first this round, sort of like going up and down the list.
    5) There is no restrictions on who you may select, so long as you don't select someone who's already been selected.

    ...something like that. We can figure out trading once everything is done, I suppose.

    Ahh decisions, decisions. My philsophy is bowlers first, so now it's a toss-up:
    Muralitharan or Akhtar; Akhtar or Muralitharan. Oh hell, I always enjoy the sight of the off stump flying out of the ground...

    I take Shoaib Akhtar!
    Head of Public Relations for the Ajit Agarkar Appreciation Society (AAAS)

    My duties include explaining why he is so good when he does something good and making excuses for him when he does something bad. I also provide Thums Up.

    True, I should realize that it's 3:30 in the afternoon only in NY and not in England or India or Australia!

    Well I think it's sort of like the chicken or the egg. Does India have no fast bowlers because of the wickets or are the wickets made so placid because they have no fast bowlers? My hope is that with Akhtar as a spearhead, pitch curators are gonna make sure there's some grass on the pitch at all times!

    i think alot to do with India pitches is the type of soil that is used...i think more often than not,pitches wont be green in India, or be bouncy etc.

    Well as presumably I now control the BCCI too, I will order wickets to be made with grass, grass and more grass! I will fly in special soil if necessary! In the meanwhile, I'll play Test Matches in places like Mohali, which is a pretty fast pitch. I'm sure green, fast wickets can be made anywhere except really cold places.

    Maybe something to do with the heat? I dunno. And you'd think that there would be more people alive in the UK at this time, given that there are a lot of UK based members. It is the English game after all.

    Yeah it probably bakes the grass, but Akhtar bowled really well on his tour of India on dusty pitches, so I'm confident he'll be fine.
