    Would be tempted to bat Chandimal 3 and open with Alam if I were you.

    Still not decided on batting order. At least it's flexible. Could do with an allrounder, got one spare, Marcuss?

    Looking pretty good, I like the flexible batting order, lots of part-time options. Need to find some good squad bowlers now.

    Woah 6 proper bowlers, probably won't need Hussey to bowl will you?

    Mathews is more of a part-timer in first class cricket to be fair. Plus I may not want to use Afridi if I want batting depth, so I may need Gilly or Symonds to come in at #7. Like I said, it's nice to have so many options here. Still haven't really decided who opens either.

    Completed squad:

    Dean Elgar
    Fawad Alam
    Dinesh Chandimal+
    Mahela Jayawardene*
    David Hussey
    Andrew Symonds
    Angelo Mathews
    Shahid Afridi
    Graeme Swann
    Vinay Kumar
    Mark Davies

    Adam Gilchrist
    Zander De Bruyn
    Steven Finn
    Naved Ul Hasan
    Daryl Tuffey

    Tactics at home are to stack the batting and spin away on the final two days. Plenty of pace options for going away, plus I bat deep if I decide to play the extra bowler.

    Edit: Thinking about it, this is set to fail if Swanny gets injured. I might have to trade for a backup spinner.

    Have done so. Finn out, Weerakoon in. Finn's probably the better cricketer, but less useful for the squad.

    Yeah. Why it was silly for me to pick the extrra fast bowler, really. But at that stage in the draft, I couldn't think of another very good FC spinner.
