    Still averages about 25 in FC cricket. He probably won't be as good as last season, but he's still definitely makes any of our XIs.

    Start up thinking about picking a bowler, but realize soon that all the shortlisted options have been picked up already. End up picking another batsman.

    I guess you'll be relying on trades.

    Bowlers needed to be selected early. Left to pick from first class journeymen or take a stab at one of the bowlers from some **** competition who carries a very good record.

    I selected all my bowlers by round 6. Hoping there's still a few decent bats left.

    Since 2008:
    David Masters, 287 wickets @ 21.47

    Ftr, that's better than Mark Davies' entire career and he was picked in R6.

    And boy did you ever need to be the one who found a quality bowler from outside the Test ranks, given your attack was struggling so much with the likes of Philander, Harris and Shakib occupying places in your eleven.

    Or not.

    Yeah, maybe was a bit silly picking a bowler. I think I'm a bit light on batting as it stands.

    I wasn't questioning your strategy as such; I just found it amusing that with all these people seemingly desperate to find another good bowler or two from beyond the Test world, it was the manager with the best attack by a long way already who pulled it off.

    If your batting is struggling at the start of the season then you can always drop a bowler and roll with Kallis at first change anyway, giving you a stupidly deep batting lineup with Shakib at 8, a wicket keeper at 9, Philander at 10 and Harris at 11.

    Batting Harris at 11 would also get you a big sponsorship package offer from HypnoNev Inc.

    I was taking the piss. I have no room for another batsman
    All I needed was a keeper and somebody to bowl first change, so I picked the best person I could think of to bowl first change.

    I appreciate the point you were making in your initial post, you just didn't pick up on me being facetious.

    You could've picked another batsman and ran with the unbeatable lower order if you wanted; Kallis could handle first change given the other bowlers you have.

    I detected your facetiousness but assumed you were doing it somewhat sarcastically to defend your pick against an attack that I hadn't in fact made. As it turned out, your facetiousness merely stemmed from the fact that you're facetious.
