    Agree with this, particularly the long winded part. I guess you sort of could have it like Thomas suggested with a core 5-7, and the rest drafted, but then who chooses which players get put into the draft etc. etc.

    CWBCC Announce Franchise Captains

    1. Garven Island (Turistas?) - Xavier Rose*
    2. Davistow (Diamond Dazzlers) - Kingsley Clapham*
    3. Fardingham (Cockatoos?) - Heath Davis*
    4. Morkambe - Jamee Gray*
    5. West Robham (Rabid Wolves?) - Kev Gough*
    6. East Robham (Upper Body? ) - Nath Patrick*
    7. Nixonstown (Ninjas?) - Greg Thomas*

    * accepted

    Comments:
    Jamee Gray will lead Morkambe, and will hope to draw upon the heavy CW Red support as he searches for success. By the same measure, Xavier Rose will look to the Green faithful as the head of Garven Island.

    Kev Gough and Nath Patrick are due to engage in an intense rivalry, as they battle for Robham bragging rights.

    Captains may propose franchise names when they accept their contracts.

    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    Kev Gough accepts. Looks good.

    Could change but propose- West Robham Rabid Wolves.

    Dangerous, aggressive, nasty and a tongue twister.
    If I only just posted the above post, please wait 5 mins before replying as there will be edits

    Given the track record of 20:20 sides naming their teams after the local endemic wildlife, may I enquire as to some of the native species of CW Land?

    Fardingham Mission Statements

    1. To promote the 'fun' aspect of cricket. Fardingham players will be expected to play fair, and play hard. Any players indulging in dubious cricketing activities (e.g. claiming bump balls as catches) will be dropped for one game.
    2. To develop the relationship between fans and players. Players will be expected to appear for a discussion forum with fans before the game; lasting not longer than half an hour. Players will also be expected to perform 'bar duty' after the game. This will constitute 3 players from that game's match day team being bar men in the local pub for fans and other players alike.

    Pretty much the same as Australia, except bigger and with extra eyes and toes, owing to the pollution.

    The CW XI Icons

    1. Andrew Cloete (Garven Island)
    The greatest batsman CWLand has ever produced, Andrew Cloete will join Xavier Rose in Clowich on Garven Island. Undoubtedly the most recognized CW cricketer of all-time, his presence will be a definite boost to ticket sales.

    2. Chris Butler (Davistow)
    Butler's greatest achievement for CW XI came in Test cricket, when he struck the first and only triple hundred by a CW XI batsman. But Butler has also found excellent touch in limited Twenty20 cricket opportunities to date. He will play under ODI teammate, Kingsley Clapham.

    3. Neil Pickup (Morkambe)
    The CW XI captain will add immeasurable value to Morkambe with his experience and legspinning pedigree. Clearly the best T20 spinner in the country to date, Pickup's iconic status cannot be questioned.

    4. Håkon Mørk jr. (West Robbham)
    Mork was a surprising success for Yorkshire in the shorter form of the game. Throwing technique and caution to the wind, the wicketkeeper-batsman batted down the order and proved a superb finisher with some excellent improvisation at the crease. He's likely to be a key player at West Robbham.

    5. Rob Dauth (Fardingham)
    Dauth is still yet to firmly establish himself at international level, but with some superb knocks under his belt, it seems only a matter of time. His livewire fielding and classy batting should nicely complement the raw pace of his skipper, Heath Davis.

    6. Liam Camps jr. (East Robbham)
    The Robbham rivalry is well and truly alive, with Camps jr. matching up against Mork jr. across town. With established batting and bowling skills, Camps is primed to be invaluable for his former Blue teammate, Nath Patrick.

    7. Ashley Chaulk (Nixonstown)
    There is no better place than Nixonstown for a personality as large as Ashley Chaulk. For years he has dominated List-A cricket in CWLand, and has turned on the style for CW XI since his international recall. After a moderate IPL campaign, Chaulk will look to re-establish himself as one of the best ball-strikers in the country.

    These players, like the captains, need to confirm their appointment.

    My suggestion is the Fardingham Cockatoos.

    We're loud, raucous and most importantly, good looking.

    Fardingham would be delighted to welcome Rob Dauth, if he is so incline. Skipper Heath Davis commented that he's always after fielders capable of stopping his ever-so-occasional loose delivery from being dispatched to the boundary ropes.
