    IMO I've got the best opening combination going if we weren't picking current Test players. Rogers has 15,000 FC runs @ 51 and Rudolph has averaged about 52 over 4 years for Yorkshire, gone back to Franchise cricket and was top scorer last year.

    Haha that Langer thing was so random. It's only been two games though.

    3 games?

    2 Trial matches and one exhibition match.

    He has scored 4 centuries and 2 half centuries in these six innings.

    A total of 660 runs. Some random form that is.

    Haha well I can exclusively reveal that the database does not place Justin Langer amongst the world's top 50 batsmen.

    In terms of non current test openers Mukund averages 60 over the last 4 years and Vijay averages 51 and has played 9 tests.

    Looking more and more that way tbh. I didn't think IPL would count, but apparantly it does now.
    I'm always suspicious of shops that sell bait.

    Well basing your picks on what you thought would count was second guessing in the first place, wasn't it?

    The standard of your cricket in the IPL has absolutely no baring, but if you've retired, continuing to play some cricket and keeping yourself in some vague status of match fitness is obviously going to be beneficial should you suddenly come out of retirement for a First Class tournament.

    I guess we'll have to disagree there because I don't think playing the IPL is really relevant. If it is, why not club cricket? Gus Fraser is still playing for the Lord's Taverners, for example.

    True if Zimbabwe t20 is relevant then so should club Cricket.

    Let alone the IPL. Plus many of these retired players were deemed unfit by the IPL owners.

    It barely counts for anything tbh. Just reduces a retirement capping by a fraction less. This competition will definitely not be decided by who plays IPL and who doesn't.

    Suddenly thought of Graeme Smith and was wondering who picked him. Went to the list of teams and went down the list. Halfway down I started wondering whether anyone picked him. My hopes kept rising with each team without Smith and by the second last team I was so excited I nearly crapped my pants. I Finally clicked on Got_Spin.

    ****.

    Rudolph is a great pick.
