It is your go, 12 hours gone for Cevno.

"Your averages, captain, coaches and players can probably survive incompetence over a relatively short series, so if youíre going to be rubbish, make sure itís against Pakistan, Sri Lanka, New Zealand or someone."
marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!
Anyone want to join the Society?
Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.
Then it weights it on the standard of the first class cricket the player plays, and how their record reflected against their peers indicates what sort of player they would be in a totally standardized system.
In CPL cricket there was a huge rush for any decent Aussie first class cricketer, this was pre-Ashes though so I wouldn't be surprised if we saw more Yarps or Poms get snapped up domestically early on.
Are FC records considered for test players as well?

Yep but given lesser weighting.
Hmm what are these mysterious weightings exactly?
EDIT: For instance how would a guy like Kambli be rated. High FC average but didn't play too many tests.

The best way to think about it is just pick the best players that you would if they were to play a game tomorrow. Rohit Sharma has a FC average of 60 but nobody realistically expects him to outperform ABDV whose Test/FC average are only 48 or whatever.
A - because ABDV plays a lot of cricket in South Africa which typically is a harder place to score runs than India
B - Because ABDV's record includes a lot of Tests which are of a higher standard than FC cricket. etc etc
Draft order for round 3?
If this thread was based on a sitcom it would be called Himannv in the Middle.
Or perhaps Everybody Loves Marcuss.
