    Way I see it:

    rvd1242321 - will be good in the future, but it won't do much damage this season.
    Eds - risky side. Can arguably win it, but also flop significantly. Hard to tell.
    Johnners - mediocre.
    Marcuss - really should win it.
    mine - risky, but fairly good. Probably one of the stronger sides.
    Himmanv - lacks big names. Will do reasonably well but won't really challenge.
    Howe_zat - top side if they play on spinning pitches a lot. May struggle if they don't.
    weeman27bob - should do pretty good. Should finish in the upper half of the comp.
    GIMH - not even very strong by English standards.
    Cevno - wickets may be an issue. Will probably be hard to beat but won't win much.
    Noble One - mid-table side.
    Spark - fairly strong, but rather risky.
    Daemon/Flem274* - strugglers.
    Cabinet96 - pretty solid side. One of the contenders.
    GingerFurball - not nearly as strong as last season. Probably should do reasonably well though.
    Prince EWS - strugglers, though the top 5 (except for Sibanda) is fairly strong.
    Samuel_Vimes - meh. Pretty strong bowling attack though.

    Underrating Noble_One imo. Also think Himannv has a decent side.

    Also disagree with GIMH's rating. That bowling attack would dominate the CC and besides Lumb the batting isn't awful. Not good enough for this standard though.

    Yeah you're probably right with GIMP's, but yeah it would struggle at this standard.

    Himannv's isn't very good for mine, batting lacks a standout and the bowling is a massive risk. Probably underrated Noble One's lineup though.

    Really though apart from the bottom 4 and your side it looks rather close. Should be fun.

    Going to enjoy the Squirts destroying Morgz.

    Hopefully his trading schemes don't get in first.

    Not sure why I have dropped from runner-up last season to mid-table this year in Morgieb's assessment.

    1. A Peterson = A Puttick
    2. N McKenzie = W Jaffer
    3. A Prince - Retained
    4. S Tendulkar - Retained
    5. D Brownlie > C White
    6. S Patel = M North
    7. HAPW Jayawardene > N Pothas
    8. L Butterworth - Retained
    9. R McLaren - Retained
    10. P Siddle - Retained
    11. A Rehman > Mendis

    Mendis just freakishly underperformed. Without doubt he was better than Rehman will be.

    AWTA, I can easily see my middle order doing **** all and my bowlers really struggling for wickets.

    Back on topic, I think I could finish anywhere, really. Gayle, Ryder, Amir, Karthik and to an extent Sidebottom, Umar and Vettori are all pretty hit-and-miss.
