    Posted in the other thread:

    I'm quite happy with my side. The weakest links, Stoinis and Ali are both very good fits in my team. Stoinis provides the death bowling option and given the length of my tail, having a number 7 who strikes at 130 is monstrous.

    And speaking of strike rates, Tamim is the only real grafter in the side. The rest of the batsmen strike at 85+, including some of the biggest hitters in the game - Gayle and Buttler.

    My bowling attack is solid with 5 seam options and two spin options. Spearheaded by Ngidi and Henry with Plunkett and Santner to follow is a very strong bowling attack. Ngidi averages 23, Henry 26 and Plunkett 29. Santner averages around 35 which is decent for a spinner, particularly one from New Zealand.

    Given I got last pick in round one I was always going to miss out on Starc, Dhoni, Kohli and Shakib. But I did manage to grab some really big names - Stokes, Buttler, du Plessis and Gayle are all legitimately great batsmen, averaging at or above 40. Even Stoinis, the weakest of the top 6 had a year and a half of being legitimately awesome with the bat and had only fallen off those year. Du Plessis averages 47 striking at 90, not Kohli level but not *that* far off.

    The platform built by Tamim, Gayle and du Plessis should allow for the later hitters Stokes and Buttler to really make use of the late overs. All of the bowlers in this side can bat as well, Santner, Plunkett and Henry all striking around 100 and averaging 20+. The weakest, Ngidi still averages 15.

    This team bats deep, bats fast, has a lot of quality bowling options and I think it is probably the best balanced side in the competition.

    Here is a summary of the batting:

    Player average @ strike rate

    Gayle 38@87 with 15 hundreds
    Tamim 36@78 with 11 hundreds
    du Plesis 47@89 with 12 hundreds
    Stoinis 34@92 with 1 hundred
    Stokes 41@94 with 3 hundreds
    Buttler 41@120 with 9 hundreds
    Asif Ali 28@130
    Santner 27@88
    Plunkett 21@103
    Henry 20@80
    Ngidi 16@71

    This batting lineup bats deep and strikes fast. If nothing else this batting would be a joy to watch.

    Bowling:

    Player average strike rate econ

    Ngidi 23 ave 25 SR 5.5 econ
    Henry 27 ave 29 SR 5.4 econ
    Plunkett 30 ave 31 SR 5.8 econ
    Santner 36 ave 45 SR 4.9 econ
    Stoinis 44 ave 43 SR 6.1 econ
    Stokes 42 ave 42 SR 6.0 econ
    Gayle 35 ave 44 SR 4.8 econ

    Ngidi and Henry spearhead the attack. Plunkett strikes in the middle overs and Santner, Stoinis, Stokes and Gayle provide an adaptable combination for the other twenty overs. Stoinis can take death bowling duties along with Ngidi. Santner and Gayle will come into their own on spinning tracks and Stokes and Plunkett provide excellent options in the middle overs. It is a well rounded attack and even though it could use a better spinner, that not a huge problem given I'm not relying on Santner to bowl ten overs each match.

    This side is designed around the England and New Zealand sides of the 2019 World Cup. Bat deep, have a ton of bowling options and have an ultra aggressive lower middle order.

    Haha. Nah it's a vote which isn't anything really. The process is more fun than the result. I learned a lot about the players, including a bunch of players I wouldn't otherwise have noticed.

    And I honestly would pay good money to see this side in action. It's stronger than any of the semi finalists from the actual world cup.

    Of the other teams.

    Nufan has the best top order.

    Michaelf has the best lower middle order.

    Marcus has the best bowling attack (excluding part timers).

    Teuton has the best new ball pair.

    Jimmy has a very balanced side.

    Red Hill gets me all patriotic.

    Mr Prez is one good bowler from greatness.

    srbhkshk has a team that would excel in Asia. His team also has a ton of bowling options.

    Mr Mister has a bowling attack which will either run through a side or go for 450. Top batting though.

    I think the opening post needed to say that this was based on the players full career. It makes a difference IMO.

    Makes a huge difference.

    Dhoni and everyone from South Africa in particular suffer if voting on the world cup performance.

    Having said that, it's only been contestants and trundler voting so far.

    So my entire side has 51 ODI hundreds.

    It's insane that Kohli alone has almost as many, given that Gayle and Tamim are nearly at the end of their career, du Plessis has been around for ages and Buttler has 9 hundreds batting down the order.

    Kohli has just ridiculous isn't he.
