    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    He asked when he confirmed his sign up if he could change to be back up keeper. The Under 19s need a new keeper/batsmen and system probably needs a couple more as Black don't have a back up and the other clubs outside Green only have two. But i guess its up to him to push for it anyway.

    5) Black

    This order is determined by the combined finish of clubs over the past two seasons.
    Im I the only person that thinks the way of determining the order is wrong now the salary cap has been introduced?

    As there is now a 60 pt limit, a drive towards parity, a limit on contracted players without paying a penalty and effectively a completely different system, I dont see what relevance the previous 2 seasons have.

    With a new system in place, surely that slate needs to be wiped clean and start all over again?

    The draft order should be randomnly determined as all teams are now starting off with similar points levels within a whole new system.

    If Im the only one that thinks this way, Ill be quiet and leave it. However, just thowing my thoughts out there.
    If I only just posted the above post, please wait 5 mins before replying as there is bound to be edits

    Technically, you missed him. I copy/pasted the initial list from the email you sent me.

    The color of immortality, nature and envy - you are truly a unique person. While clearly the color of nature, you also symbolize rebirth, fertility and hope in the world. On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!

    You're forgetting that the entire contract system is based on performances over past seasons. That's how we've rated players, and thats the foundation of the entire system.

    With each team facing the same salary cap and dealing with players ranked on past success, it's only fair for teams to draft players based on team success. It's the way it's done in most professional sports, where the finish of a team one season determines the draft pick the next season. That way the lesser teams tend to end up getting the better players in the draft.
