    -----



    Abdur Rehman

    Round selected 3
    Season 1 record
    DNP

    Amazing luck he has slipped through to round 5. One of the better wicketkeepers in international cricket, and a solid performer in Season 1 of CWPL.

    -----



    Jackson Bird

    Round selected 6
    Season 1 record
    DNP

    Mick Lewis speaks
    Averages 16 in Sheffield Shield cricket. Need I say more?

    Runs: 1,371, Average: 57.13, 50s/100s: 8/5, Highest score: 149

    International career has fallen away, however a solid performer in Season 1 and a steal for round 7.

    -----

    Season 1 record
    Matches: 8
    Runs: 322, Average: 40.25, 50s/100s: 0/1, Highest score: 140

    One of the stronger performers in Season 1, and has just completed another solid season in South Africa.

    So taking Bird was basically just a **** act to piss off the blokes who haven't recruited any bowlers yet?

    Sanga isn't the best off spinner in the history of cricket? News to me.

    I figure it's worth being conservative with bowlers. Last season I started with Roach and Hilfenhaus as front-line bowlers only to perform below par.

    Bird a steal at Round 6 IMO. Considering how well Copeland performed based on his first class record, Bird should be a star.

    Might not have played enough games though. Copeland had played more than a full season's worth of FC games when he got picked in s1.
