    Imagine you'll be light on the ol' bowling, having retained Sanga and Chanderpaul as well as picking Warner in Round 2.

    Yeah, let's see. Took somewhat of a gamble with my retentions which messed up with the draft order. Going with a different strategy now.

    Miller an interesting choice of retention. He was very average in Season 1 correct?

    He may prove a steal considering his Bradman like bowling figures in domestic cricket of late. I'm sure someone would have taken him earlier than Round 13 if available.

    Probably up there with the best if you can bolster that bowling attack.

    Which is going to be nigh on impossible to do in Round 9.

    Especially if you're looking for someone who can bat as well.

    Curses to those people hoarding all the seam bowling allrounders.

    Yeah; he doesn't have a recognised fifth bowler there at all either, so there's going be a lot of pressure on the four frontliners to do well. The team could really use a proper Test bowler instead of one of those several good batsmen; might be a trade opportunity.

    Need to get a quality batting all rounder ideally somewhere, but that's going to be a problem. Messed up my retentions a bit in hindsight, which could have given me a better balance.

    Probably will have to prepare a bowling h4x pitch now too.

    Probably not ideal, but gives me some sort of batsman who can bowl option. Bowled last season in FC too.

    With such a good top six (including your keeper) and unknown bowling attack, surely picking a predominately bowling player at 7 would've been a better idea. I understand that you figured that past a certain point all the bowlers were going to be of similar quality and that you might as well fill up your batting lineup, but this is a question more of team balance than order of selection.
