@Chewie now up.

No obligation to lock in your R10 men now, btw. If you want to put him forward four months from now, that's fine. Just say 'pass, @_____ now up' in your post.

Cricketer Of The Year
Both Newton and Bennett had injury lay-offs last season. It doesn't work as a like-for-like substitution though; I just take the points of the highest man on your bench who's active in first-class cricket.

I'd like the other seven drafters to briefly weigh in on whether we're lenient or strict on activating a sub in Bahnz's team for Sears (not injured, not ill, not retired).


Cricketer Of The Year

Ferns exploiting that day 2 variable bounce. What a R10 pick I just gifted to Straw Man. He could be cutting it in and threatening the pads and sticks in precisely the way domestic bats don't enjoy it, all season long. I'd promote up the bench, probably.

Not bad for someone whose claim to fame last season was as Auckland's most nondescript right arm medium pacer - not fast, not left arm, not chunky medium pace greatness, the other one.

Tbh he looks quite good in that clip, makes the most of his height.


Cricketer Of The Year
Right we could be done here, or maybe we just hit the @Flem274* speed bump again. Please post your bench with the players in the order you want for Plunket R2 and on, if this preference of activation now differs from the draft round you picked players up in.

If you back yourself to do what Vandem did last season with the data entry after rounds, that really is appreciated a lot.

International Debutant
This Auckland vs Otago match is proving brilliant for my side. Jamieson 5-39 and 3-6, Kitchen top scorer in the Otago top 6 twice in a row and a catch, Horne 162 and 3 catches...

Meanwhile, Rae and Renwick get pairs, Hawkins 1 run between two innings...

A team full of batting allrounders that were terrible at batting first round, leaving only the dribs and drabs of part-timer wickets. Southee only takes the field for the first time this morning in a dead rubber. Guptill scoring runs that don't count an extra annoyance. On to the next round.
