    With the timing of trial matches undetermined, anyone want to make some predictions for CWPL 2?

    Leading run-scorer: Kumar Sangakkara
    Dominated CWPL 1 and despite recent poor form should dominate again.

    Leading wicket-taker: Vernon Philander
    Statistically unmatched. One of the best in CWPL 1, and that was without a Test record to support him.

    Winner: Funky Town Monkey Pimps
    Kallis, Philander, Hasan and Harris are A grade. The support squad is full of class too.

    I love this team, filled with some of my favourites. However I cannot find 20 wickets out of Johnson, Magoffin, Maxwell, O'Keefe, Pathan, Starc, Coulter-Nile and Pushpakumara.

    Most runs: Shiv Chanderpaul. Bit of a punt but I genuinely think he's been the best bat in the world over the last year.

    Most wickets: Stuart Broad. Tricky to call because you've got to consider who'll be great and won't have to compete for wickets. Broad's year has been tremendous, and Vimes' attack will be heavily reliant on him and Hilfy with the new ball.

    Winners: The Brudenell Social Club Pub Quiz Team. Natch.

    Wooden Spoon - The Globo-Gym Cobras. Joke team.

    Hilfenhaus. Morgie has Morkel. (And sod-all else imo, unless Mendis and Gul find their 2008-form.)

    Not in a position to judge much, but think the Furballs should be solid again.

    Leading run-scorer: AB De Villiers
    Will keep poorly, but with the bat will be ridiculous.

    Leading wicket-taker: Dale Steyn
    Cos.

    Knows the simming averages, dirty cheat etc etc.

    Howe's side far too inconsistent to lose numerous games on the trot.

    Most runs: Ian Bell (because I'm biased)
    Most wickets: Dale Steyn (a gun, and without that much of an attack behind him)
    Winner: Markarse's ****s
    Losers: Phelgm's ****s
    5-0

    Leading run-scorer: Michael Clarke
    Outstanding recent form, will be a close run thing with Sanga though.

    Leading wicket-taker: Vernon Philander
    For obvious reasons. Assuming we're able to tailor home pitches, can also see Swann taking hatfuls at home.

    Winner: Funky Town Monkey Pimps
    Comfortably the strongest squad. Fingers crossed Kallis flunks again tho (nothing against Marcuss, just because Kallis is a ****)

    Wooden spoon: Squirts
    Do not rate

    You forgot van Zyl!

    Definitely think there are 2 or 3 attacks worse than mine though.

    Hoping Stiaan does well. Largely because of his weird first name.

    Haha, it was the deciding factor when picking between he & Zander de Bruyn (was a tough choice, as Zander is awesome in it's own right imo)

    The Afrikanders have a lot to answer for, but they are good on the awesome names front.

    Speaking of amazing names, Pushpakamura cannot go unmentioned imo.

    Pushpakamura. The Sri Lankan side of the mid 90's was full of such awesome names.

    Hathurusingha, Jayasuriya, Wickramasinghe, Dharmasena, Tillakaratne, Gurusinha, Ranatunga, Kaluwitharana and Pushpakumara himself.

    Leading run-scorer: Shivnarine Chanderpaul.
    More confident about him this time than Sanga.


    Leading wicket-taker: Dale Steyn.
    Well, he is the best. If not him, then Philander.

    Winner: Funky Town Monkey Pimps
    The best team + best squad probably too.


    Wooden spoon: The Shakespearean Animals CC
    Like the team, so hopefully they don't though.
