    That is obviously going to weigh much more heavily than someone like Adams taking cheap county wickets, because Johnson has performed well at the highest level.

    In terms of potential though and performance in international cricket, Kohli has done more than any young English Batsman i can think of.
    And Badrinath,Mukund,Rahan,Vijay,pUJARA etc.. have done well on overseas India a tours too. Though not sure how that is taken into account.
    How many teams are there in indian domestic circuit? like 25
    How many are there in aus? 6
    Standard of cricket is far lower in indian domestic circuit because the quality players are spread out over the 30 teams. Dilution of talent.
    Even if there were 2 times more quality players in india than there were in aus, 4 times more teams in india would ensure that the quality of cricket was still lower.

    Indian domestic circuit is divided into two divisions of the top 14 teams and 12 teams respectively.

    The standard in the super league is higher than the plate league like county cricket.

    Then further the super league is divided in to 2 groups of 7 each.

    And this is not the only domestic FC cricket the Indian players play .

    There is also the Duleep trophy in which top players are divided into zones of 5 teams each,which are less number of teams than the Aussie Sheffield shield Fyi.

    Plus then there is also the Irani trophy where The Ranji Trophy Champions play the Rest of India.

    So i am not sure where you are coming to your conclusions from.
    Yes there is dilution of talent but not to the extent you seem to think.

    Plus not forget India A matches count as FC matches too and so do Rest of India and Board 11 matches which best Indian players play a lot,including foreign tours.

    Badrinath average more than 200 in 11 matches including foreign tours with India A,IIRC.
    Pujara Averaged 110 in England last year with India A. Mukund and Rahane near 60.

    Plus since we are discussing Kohli ,he has proven himself in international cricket (though ODI cricket does not count here) more than any upcoming AUS or ENG batsman have.

    Though that does not mean that you should pick him in your team here as it is a different competition.

    I am not saying that he will do badly ,but that Andre Adams would do well as well.
    And their CPl performances indicate that as well.

    If anything i think you should be happy about it.

    The difference won't be as much considering the respective rounds they got picked in.

    Wonder why you picked James foster and Andre Mcdonald ahead of other more established Test players then?

    And also why some of the International bowlers on the wicket taker list you(as high as 10,11 ,12) mentioned have not been picked so far while bowlers like Faulkner,Butterworth etc... got picked despite not even being close to international cricket at the moment?

    Obviously it is about a combination of domestic and International performances.
    And remember these bowlers will be bowling to some Non international batsman as well.

    In Foster's case, because I waited until round 5 to draft a wicketkeeper, by which time every half decent Test keeper had gone.

    In McDonald's case, because he's a gun allrounder and I wanted to get him early.

    In the CPL trials:
    Adams: 1 match, 25 runs @ 12.50; 10 wickets @ 9.90
    Johnson: 1 match, 4 runs @ Infinity; 7 wickets @ 26.00

    In the CPL proper season so far:
    Adams: 2 matches, 102 runs @ 25.50; 11 wickets @ 25.27
    Johnson: 2 matches, 47 runs @ 23.50; 9 wickets @ 33.11

    Small sample size but I thought I'd post it up because it was being referenced.

    They'll both be good pickups IMO.

    did they both play on similar sort of pitches?

    Kohli has to play ahead of Blackwell. I own Blackwell in cricsim CPL, I have a weaker batting line up than you and Blackwell is very much my 12th man.

    Nah he needs Blackwell to be fifth bowler. I'd play Blackwell.

    A-team cricket (between two A teams that is; not on tour against random domestic teams) is judged to be the second strongest level of cricket, behind Test cricket.
