    I'll have a look at the other squads in a bit but all I've said thus far is that I'm not convinced off the bat that it's the outright best. Some of those names look better on paper than they are in reality, imo anyway.

    It could well be the best but Daemon has Kohli and ABDV so he's off to a solid start. His top 3 was poor though.

    Top 6 is more or less a cop out for me, as I know a few teams 7/8/9 really blow me out of the water as a team as a whole.

    I did have Daemon's batting as better than mine when I did the rankings and used standardized Test averages. But that was before the top 6's were fully done and I naturally want to doubt that Daemon's FC players will be as good as Fawad Alam.

    My top 3 were

    Daemon
    Avengers
    Spark

    I think morgie's batting is handy tbf

    1. Kraigg Brathwaite
    2. KL Rahul
    3. Kusal Mendis
    4. Joe Root *
    5. Dinesh Chandimal +
    6. Shaun Marsh

    All active, none of them complete spuds, decent Test bodies of work with good FC numbers behind them, nobody really out of position.

    Brathwaite and Rahul have been hopeless in recent times.

    Who’s fourth?

    You're 6th, which with your bowling focus is pretty OP.

    I’ll take it. If we can drag this out for another two weeks or so that’d be great as I fancy Harris to get some against SRL.

    Bavuma letting me down.

    Don't get me wrong, yours is probably the worst, but I used standardised Test averages to get my ratings, and Randy didn't favour well in that. He has FC guns though, and is definitely better than you.

    I think Athlai probably does have the best top five, with the possible exception of Daemon who has three spuds in the top order but then two World XI bats at 4 and 5 - it's kind of hard to place that one. Some of the teams with better batsmen than Paine at 6 would probably eclipse Athlai too in terms of top sixes though.
