    The points per game system will mean that only your 8 strongest performances will count, so it should increase.

    Well I keep showing the PPG graphic, but I'm only doing that as a guide on who's winning, like it's WASP. Chewie won't let Howsie draft dodgy fitness guys like Wheeler and then move the goalposts towards PPG being the real deal. Unfortunately Howsie has three or four quiet games from Ravindra to replace with better ones, so he's sitting pretty.
    Don't squander the gold of your days making a shrine of cricket videos, trying to improve the hopeless failure, giving your life away to the Blockys, the Devciches and the Weerasundaras! Surrender your devout little cricketing heart to the inured agribusinessman.

    This is incorrect and I will not listen to it.

    I think Team Athlai must've thought there was -100 points for dropping a match-clinching catch. If only I could keep tabs on such things.

    But won't increase as much since I won't be getting the full value of the performances (as they'll replace previous performances which already earned points)

    The flipside of that is they won't decrease either.

    Latham's going to replace Raval as king of openers

    Always Ghambhiring, this Chewie. Just the four tons for his players so far this round, Bennett with another fivefer, Rutherford about to get his two chances to cash in at McLean Park.

    Oh great, bowling points for Phillips now. Howsie may be going the way of ND's T20 campaign here.

    Yep Howsie blew it in that round and there's suddenly very little time left for anyone to even dream of making up 1100 points on Chewie.




    600+ performers (to the left of them in small text is the round they were picked up in the draft):

    A commanding win for Chewie, beating all the more seasoned campaigners in what I think is his rookie appearance, definitely first appearance in a New Zealand first-class draft that I've run.

    He suffered no major injuries and getting his 11th man over 500 points was a real key to it. A little bit of punter's vision helped too though, Phillips being a better red ball force in late summer conditions than the rest of us could really see in him, a selection he picked up in the bargain bin of the 9th round.
