    I'm backing a few current Australian domestic players, that probably isn't wise

    Batting average of 23 and bowling average of 24 as a spinner in WI though. Not the strongest domestic comps, with spinners taking all the wickets at low averages - Miller averages like 16. And it's not like he's done really well in the last year or two either

    I think that a good average for a spinner.

    Is the competition taking into account the strength of the batsmen he got his wickets against?.

    Or the stats are face value only?

    Takes into account everything as PEWS is a robot and churns through all information

    No one quite knows how Cribb stats work but generally i think of it like

    Away > Home
    Spin in Australia stats > spin in bangladesh
    Tests > A team > strong domestic cricket > weak domestic cricket

    A south african that dominates franchise cricket is great, a south african that dominates their 3-day stuff is probably a spud. West Indies is some of the worst quality domestic stuff and its super spin friendly, so unless they are notably better than everyone else in the tournament, a wi spinner averaging 25 is probably going to be worse than an australian averaging 35 in domestic cricket.

    Haha you were specifically told this at the start of the draft. I even copied the thing into the first post of the draft thread.

Picking someone from Irish domestic cricket with good First Class averages probably won't be the hack you think it is, for example, as the different competitions are weighted differently based on a number of factors.

    Without having actually hooked at the numbers of your players specifically, my gut feel is that your first ten or so picks were fine but some of your backup players were a bit "failed stats hack". Cornwall will probably be a better batsman but a worse bowler than you were expecting (I'm sure he'll still be a bowling allrounder, but it'll close in a bit).

    And as has been said, when you name a lineup that isn't unofficial, you probably shouldn't have six frontline bowlers in your team.
