    Going back through some of the S1 squads is definitely interesting -- seeing which speculative picks flopped, and which would have really paid off.

    There's a bunch of Season 2 stuff in the Season 1 forum now as well ftr. Might get slightly confusing if you're digging but I think we labelled most of the Season 2 stuff Season 2 in the titles.

    Usually it's a bowler first (IIRC my C/WPL first rounders have been Amir, Morkel and Pattinson and I often go for bowlers in draft games and the like). Though given the paucity of high-class bats in the modern game and the other Big 4 members going 1/2/3 I'm not too disappointed with my pick.

    I'll never forget you picking Sarfraz Ahmed the bowler, because the keeper hadn't been picked yet, and in the draft thread you just posted "Sarfraz Ahmed" without qualifying it.

    I asked you which one you meant just to be a pedantic dick, completely assuming you meant the keeper, and then it turned out you did mean the bowler. I was gobsmacked haha.
    zorax and randycricfreak like this.

    It used to consume so much of my time to actually separate the two players in the database too; it always wanted to combine them into a bowling allrounder. Using cricinfo player IDs instead of player names has solved that issue, but fmd it was the pits.

    Nah I'm pretty sure I did legitimately want the bowler. Had already picked my primary keeper so wanted to leave my secondary one late.

    What a gun R17 pick that would've been. I bet people actually wanted him but thought I had picked him.
