    6th Team Options?

    We have had this problem before and looks like it will be an issue again due to the odd number of teams.

    Aa far as I can see these are our choices, would love to hear about others that people have.

    1.) One team having a bye each matchday, this is hugely undesirable.

    2.) Call in an International "A" Team. Most likely a weaker one such as Bangladesh, Zimbabwe or West Indies etc...

    3.) Masters Team. This is what we most recently had, however if we went that way I'd probably look at having less big stars, maybe someone such as Jimmy Maher instead of Brian Lara for example.

    4.) Invitational side, a team made up of Associate players. So a mix of Canadians, Kenyans, Afghanis etc...

    5.) One those above sides as is, perhaps Bermuda or Netherlands.

    6.) Any other Suggestion

    Poll is only here as a guide and will be looking more at the discussion when it comes to making the decision.

    A Best of the Associates team sounds good.

    Not quite as good as a proper Sixth Team, but the next best idea.

    I didn't include that as I think there was a lot of people against that last time it was brought up.

    **** off with overseas teams

    Would prefer the bye, gives me the chance to not have to name a team every day.
    The one, the only CW Black
    Code:
    47.3 W Coppinger to Heads 
        Smacked the ball straight into the groin of Iwuajoku who has fallen over, 
        miraculously with the ball still caught in his scrotal area! Out!

    Exactly my thinking.

    Yeah, the bye's actually preferrable IMO, but I really don't see it happening.

    In hindsight, agree with this. Not that I have ever simmed, but it would make it easier for those running it if there is a bye each week as opposed to an extra game.
