    Reliance on your 5th bowler is dependent on the strength of your main attack. Ian Bell probably isn't a great option, however you might get lucky and your bowling attack fires.

    A number of teams got by last season using only part-timers in support. I used North and White who took only 9 wickets between them. Howe used Mathews and de Bruyn who managed only 9 for the season.

    I don't think I'm ever going to have to worry about bowling options, what with Hussey/Bopara/Sewhag providing more than passable part time options.

    Hoping I should be alright with Stokes at 6. If he doesn't Perform I may be a little shoot though.

    I hope there would be more than one trial game. Would like to see how a few of my reserves go.

    Your team is easily the fan favourite of the competition. No tail, and yet so many bowling options.

    If the conditions are seam-friendly, get Trott on before Panesar but probably after a second spell for whichever opening bowler makes way for Freddie. if possible.

    How many trial games will we be doing? I'd like to try out all 16 players.

    Anyway, here's my line up for the first trial match, I know it's slightly unbalanced, but I want to try out all my bowlers.

    1. Michael Carberry
    2. AB de Villiers* +
    3. Asad Shafiq
    4. Ryan ten Doeschate (7)
    5. Suresh Raina (8)
    6. Ravindra Jadeja (6)
    7. Ravichandran Ashwin (5)
    8. Pat Cummins (2)
    9. Saeed Ajmal (4)
    10. Aizaz Cheama (3)
    11. Mohammad Asif (1)

    Bench: Suraj Randiv, Craig Kieswetter, Andrew Strauss, Gautam Gambhir

    Special instructions: Only bowl ten Doeschate and Raina if the first 6 bowlers are doing absolutely nothing.

    When KP returns he will be the banana..

    Can I change my trail line-up based on my last two picks?

    1. S Robson
    2. J Botha (5)
    3. N Compton (8)
    4. U Salahuddin
    5. F du Plessis (7)
    6. B Stokes (6)
    7. D Vilas (+)
    8. N Rimmington (2)
    9. S Bond (3)
    10. G Dockrell (4)
    11. M de Lange (1)

    Resting: Nevill (replacing Vilas in Game 2), Bravo (for Salahuddin), Cook (for Robson), Wagner (for Rimmington), Boult (for de Lange).'

    Instructions: Share the ball around, even if someone is running through them. Testing out Compton's bowling, want to see how rubbish he is.
