Budget Draft Revised


International Coach
Do any of you read your draft teams in batting order in your head again and again to feel good about selections and balance? Or I am the only weirdo?

Nah I've been doing that to figure out the ideal batting order for my team.

I have two #4s in my lineup, both left handers too. Wantee to go right, left, right, left. So I ended up with Barrington, Hill, Nourse, Mead..


State Vice-Captain
1. Conrad Hunte
2. Eddie Barlow
3. John F Reid
4. Younis Khan
5. Martin Donnelly
6. Andy Flower (wk)
7. Keith Miller
8. Mike Proctor
9. Wasim Akram
10. Simon Harmer
11. Stuart MacGill

Not got the time to do a comprehensive write up but here is one to move things along (will update it later with stats etc if we are waiting for others but if not happy for this brief summary - happy to have one of the best leggies around and a competent offspiner to compliment him. Akram provides left-arm variety at an ATG level whilst Miller and Proctor provide good batting depth without compromising much on bowling given they were opening bowlers. Andy Flower an ATG keeper if mostly for his batting, delighted with my 6-11. Happy with my openers - Conrad Hunte in the discussion of a West Indies ATG XI to partner Greenidge and Younis Khan with tons of runs at an average of 52. John F Reid and Martin Donnely solid options if not elite options. Although Martin Donnelly done very little wrong in his limited Test career
