    Not sure it'll work in the long-term tbh. Particularly if your lower order are all bowlers as well.

    Yeah, that frustrating three-day competition that is basically made irrelevant by Franchise cricket, but still retains FC status. Managed to avoid falling into that trap though.

    May be willing to take a risk on one of them though, but only as a last resort back-up player.

    I hope not.

    End of the draft. Regardless of what everyone wants.

    Yeah but in that lineup he just had a strange batting order - he had the right ratio of batsmen:all-rounders:bowlers. Now, he's just going to have a really long tail.

    He's got Bravo listed at 8 with Sammy at 10 and Russell at 11. That's not a long tail; that's just thinking Bresnan is a gun bat.

    Depends on who I pick up really.

    5.Hussey
    6. Drafted Batsman
    7. Bravo
    8. Bresnan
    9. Rahim
    10. Sammy
    11. Russell/ Drafted Spinner

    That doesn't seem like too long a tail.

    I mean I'll admit that Bresnan at six through to Russell at 10 would be a fairly long tail

    Although if you look at the averages:

    Bresnan: 40, 28 in FC
    Bravo: 31, 30 in FC
    Sammy 17, 23 in FC
    Russel: 2, 27 in FC

    It wouldn't be the worst tail in the world.

    No, that's a fantastic tail. Would probably end up the best in the competition, from 8-11, batting-wise.

    I'm going to bed. Furball wants Imran Tahir. Ben Cutting as reserve.
