Well for my top of the table match i've decided on the following tactics:

Quintin*(proficient/mediorce): attacking @ normal
Nurse (respectable/woeful): destructive@attacking
Clayton+(strong/mediorce): steady@defensive
Ellis (strong/competent): defensive@defensive
Ferrier (strong/feeble): destructive@normal
Muralitharan (proficient/feeble): defensive@defensive | (proficient/feeble) def@attacking (3)
Obeysekera (respectable/fee): defensive@defensive | (competent/fee) def@def (5)
Allison (respectable/fee): steady@normal
Dowdall (worthless bat) | (proficient/feeble) defensive@normal (1)
Kinsella (abysmal bat) | (respectable/mediorce) cautious@normal (4)
Jeithoon (abysmal bat) | (proficient/feeble) defensive@normal (2)

I probably going to bat first and try an build a decent total. Hopefully Nurse and Quintin will get off to a decent start and then Clayton and Ellis can block out their gun spinner. If that fails then hopefully all my batsmen get some starts and build a decent total.

When i comes to the bowling im hoping that Dowdall or Jeithoon can knock over a couple of their Top 4, after that they got no batsmen. But if they don't by keeping them at normall they don't go for too many runs. I decided to put Murali on attacking as he is my best bowler now, especially on a dusty pitch, so im going to back him to try and run through the middle/lower order if we get past their top order.

What do you guys think?

Taking me 4-5 slow attempts to get into this thread every now and then, again I hope a mod locks it and starts a new one.

Oh and yea that team looks fine and 950k is a lot of money for a double respectable but then with the market is it's hard to say whether it's over the odds.

Think enough people have said that a new thread would be a good idea and no-one has made a big fuss about it.

Only worry now is Trev and what he'll do if he's still googling to get here but we'll deal with that when it comes. :)
