    Wicketkeeper-batsman in Chennai who's being surprisingly sensible lately. No one else really.
    I'm always suspicious of shops that sell bait.

Maybe I could use total forum posts at the beginning of the tournament - that'd prevent people from spamming but allow some differentiation of abilities. I'll come up with something as the situation arises anyway; I don't even know if we'd have enough yet.
    Was thinking about this earlier. I'd think it would be hard to get a good scale together that both differs between those with say 1k and 2k posts, but doesn't also wildly play up someone with 30k. Perhaps we could do it on total posts in the WC subforum - be the equivalent of the players "current form"?

    Lol at every Indian in this thread distributing all their points in favour of batting. And the usual aggressive, opening batsman category is opted for. And then we wonder why we can't produce a quality fast bowler, instead have a plethora of Sachins, Sehwags, Gambhirs, etc.

    Not going to lie, was about to pick the same set of traits, except now I'm thinking it'll be perhaps better for the team if I opt to be a bowler.

    Team India so far (tentative):

    1. Cevno
    2. weldone
    3. kingkallis
    4. G.I.Joe
    5. honestbharani (wk)
    6. biased indian
    7.
    8. Blaze 18
    9. Shri
    10. Daemon
    11. Turbinator

    Other candidates: vcs and Teja. (similar role as honestbharani)

    We have no specialist spinners! We need an allrounder at no. 7 who bowls spin, preferably...

    Didn't check the bowling style of Cevno or biased indian...do you bowl spin? If yes, then we at least have some part-time spinners...

    Yeah, we need an allrounder at number 7. Especially because I doubt any of us is comfortable going in with 5 bowlers.

    Both 'Daemon' and you have 'zero' batting skills ...

    Shri has 10, Blaze has 20...so, that's not a big problem...

    Haha I saw that. But I still feel batting is not an issue, it's India. The top and middle order is heavily in favour of batting.

    Plus this is our only chance to see an out and out fast bowling pair bowl in tandem for India.

    Although, I reckon' I deserve the number 10 spot ahead of Daemon.

    This was a serious post:

    Don't forget you still have Teja and vcs in reserve as batsmen.

    Might be best to play one and then use Cevno & BI to make up the overs.

    Ok so me and Daemon opening bowling. Shri as first change. Blaze to finish his 10 overs. And then Cevno, BI, and the potential number 7 to finish the remaining overs strong. Good stuff guys, seem to be all sorted out. Just need that number 7 spinning allrounder.

    As for Shri, you're more of a Shrisanth now

    Let's hope we don't become the martins of India

    To make it more realistic our bowling skills should be 75, batting 5 and fielding -50 ala Munaf Patel
