    Also no responses to the team name - the only suggestion is FATB

    I will go with that then unless someone objects shortly.

    Proudly against the bring back Bennett movement since he is injury prone and won't last 5 days.

    Fizzing at the Bung is an awesome team name. I'll be referring to us as that even if you decide to go with something else.

    Sanga isn't the best off spinner in the history of cricket? News to me.

    FATB is a great acronym.

    "The Bung" for a homeground name.

    At the time I registered I didn't realise everyone was going for 100/0 points splits. I'd go back and change it if I could, but obviously that would be pretty unfair to everyone else.

    And make it a bunsen. Spinners will be fizzing at the bung to fizz at The Bung.

    Haha surely it made sense to go 100/0 if you were a keeper regardless of what everyone else was doing though?

    I really hope you end up being used a bowler at some point just to make it all worthwhile.

    I figured a wicketkeeper wouldn't be as good a bat as a specialist batsman anyway, and 81/19 is a better reflection of the player I am IRL.

    Idiot me thought people would keep it realistic, but yeah. I'm the second most successful T20 batsman in our team so far

    Batting stats for the preseason coming soon.

    I'm happy to play the medium pace role supporting a spin heavy pitch/attack.

    10 spin, 3 pace, 2 movement.

    OK Dan has given his input especially into the T20 line up here they are. Bare in mind we needed to give everyone game time. Most of you are in at least two formats. Some of you are just in the T20 format. For those who want candid discussion behind the selection criteria please visit the quick topic and ask your questions and I will give honest replies.


    FC line up
    Wayne (wk/vc)
    Furball
    Turb
    Hurricane (c)
    Shriram
    La Brooy
    Lewis 5
    Wisney 3
    Beaver 4
    Heef 2
    Hit 1

    OD line up
    Wayne (wk/vc)
    Furball 6* (if his bowling holds up in the 1st game or we will just use 5 bowlers)
    Turb
    Hurricane (c)
    Shriram
    La Brooy
    Lewis 5
    Wisney 3
    Yamadera 2
    Beaver 4
    Heef 1

    T20 line up
    CPR (wk)
    Furball
    Narang 6
    Loganathan 1
    Shriram
    Hurricane (c)
    Wayne (vc) 7 (may get a bowl some games to make use of his bowling attributes)
    Wisney 4
    Yamadera 2
    Beaver 3
    Hit 5

    Loganathan is a spinner - so we have him opening. DJ has indicated that we can't get proper over by over control.

    OK a spinners pitch it will be - I am just going to wait a short time to allow Heef or Gelmatron our pace bowlers to come online in case they want to influence the final allocation of points.

    If they don't post in the next hour then we will make a call and go with a bunsen.
