    So many of my picks gone in the last 10 or so.

    And it looks like Marcuss has won this already. Kallis, Shakib, Katich, Laxman, Philander, Yousuf etc.

    I would sympathise with you had you picked almost anyone other than Kohli

    This. Retentions not helping the new group - with 42 players retained, for the most part the best of last season, the people who have joined this time are at a distinct disadvantage.

    Have no idea who to try and draft TBH.

    He picked Joyce, so apparently not.

    Just like to re-iterate how much I hate you Spark. Screwed everything up

    Looking at last seasons stats, wtf was the go with the bowlers seemingly being slaughtered for the most part?

    Haha if team balance lets me I might trade you afterwards for Patto. Everyone wins.

    Aren't that many good, established bowlers going around basically. Will be a little better this year but only a little since they haven't had time to settle yet.
