Mr Miyagi

No votes for that ankitj is a bit rough. Would have voted for it.

Those Safrican openers ankitj used, as good as they were, were probably a big turn off for many. Then Jupp and Laker at 7 and 8.

Charter's team is very good,as is Andrews B's but I only made one vote for Jimmy.

I agree they are the best 3, but it'd be nice to see a new poll between these three with only 1 choice available to see who wins.

Congratulations Michael.
Starting off with Grace and Hobbs when you had the choice before the random draw kicked in put you in a great position imho.
thanks to everyone who participated and voted.
