    Ftr Pushpakumara isn't in my starting XI.

    My top order is a big weakness imo, especially given the quality of quicks in all the teams. Vijay and two guys worse than Vijay isn't easy for Kohli and AB to cover on their own. Hopefully Pandya and Curran provide good lower order resistance.

    Kamplers and Marcuss look pretty good to me

    Marcuss has the same problem as you though - Marcus Harris and two players worse than Marcus Harris.

    I'd tentatively have Chewie as favourite at the moment.
    Chewie likes this.

    Two players picked later than Marcus Harris, doesn't mean they're worse #lateroundsteals

    He has the best #3 though, so top order is kinda ok.

    Chewie's bowling is great but batting looks thin.

    Ah I was thinking he had Smith in at 4 with three top order blokes still to pick.

    I feel the quality of my team is relying a lot on my judgement of the relative strength of the various FC competitions and thus the meaningfulness of recent stats. If Hamza and Iyer perform to the standard I expect, I should be fine.

    Well I don’t know if he’ll bat Smith at 3 or 4 so....

    I just did it how I’d pick his side as I haven’t seen a current team from it.

    Yeah, I had Iyer identified as a potential option as a result. Then when it came time to make that pick Rohit was still available so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Yeah I mostly discounted Rohit on the basis of being poo against anyone good in Tests and that kind of obviating some of his FC results.

    I'm working to the theory of CPL coming out at low-Test/high-A Team standard, really. Well, that and leaving room to do my best to break the sim.

    I think this one would be at that sort of level, since there aren't as many teams as previous CPLs

    I reckon most teams would probably beat Sri Lanka/Bangers/West Indies
