    Looks like I really need a couple more middle order bats and a spinner

    Rankings (I've more or less ignored FC players I don't know so if they add or detract to the team keep that in mind)


    1. Daemon
    2. Spark
    3. Marcuss
    4. Koyal Kamplers
    5. Chewie
    6. Howe
    7. Squirts
    8. DBS CC
    9. GoodAreasShane
    10. Twelfth Team
    11. Randy

    Honestly don't think any team is poor yet. Randy has just been picking more players I'm not familiar with, and I think Perera was probably the first poor pick so far. Well besides Kuggs anyway.

    Kuggs pick really means you deserve to be last IMO. Hoping that in the last rounds you really spud it up.

    Honestly don't think any team is poor yet. Randy has just been picking more players I'm not familiar with, and I think Perera was probably the first poor pick so far. Well besides Kuggs anyway.
    I think Archer is a worse pick than Perera. At least Perera has decent Test returns (in very friendly conditions tbf, but still...) to go back on, and I don't think there's too many better spinners left over. Archer's mostly bowled well at Div 2 (where Pattinson averaged 12) and his batting is irrelevant given Jadeja and Woakes were already in the team (as well as Perera). How Randy goes probably comes down to how Woakes/Jadeja fare. His batting is poor and while Steyn can carry the bowling when fit, how often will he be so?

    Reckon Dan and GAS are probably the weakest. Dan's side really lacks consistent star factor whereas GAS's attack is either ridiculously injury prone (Pattinson/Behrendorff) or a little unproven (Ngidi/Nortje).

    Would probably rate Chewie's team the highest, his bowling is amazing and his batting looks pretty solid too. My main worry with Daemon is that he hasn't sorted out his top order yet, and I don't really think there's many good options there leftover. Even though he has arguably the best two batsmen in the comp at 4/5. Can't really rate myself but otherwise would probably agree with your Top 6 (if maybe not in that order).

    Agree most sides look pretty good. Helps there's only 12 teams I guess.

    I think Chewie's team is very very good, but his batting is slightly worse than it first seems. Quality players but all are currently either treading water, or outright declining. His bowling is h4x though. I'm pretty mad that you bastards let him get those players.

    Gambling a bit on my bowling lineup, will they damage opposition top orders or just damage themselves first.

    Maxwell will only damage the scoreboard when he bowls.

    Well you managed to find a pick worse than Kuggs, so well done on that regard.
