Whatever it takes!!!
Its practical. And it is basically how we picked sides in street and school cricket which is the only level I have ever captained. :p

Just me or do Line and Length and HonestBharani both have Javed Miandad? Presuming there has been a mix up somewhere?

I selected Miandad in Round 3 of the draft. Honestbharani tried to pick him with one of his final picks and I advised him straight away that Miandad was taken. He still named his final team with Miandad included.

OOps.. I had a spreadsheet of my picks, I think I changed my pick to Younis KHan in the thread but did not update my sheet. If mrmr can update the OP, and posters can use the Change Vote button if it changes their vote.

Sorry L&L.


And **** you mrmr and morgie, its not intentional. I don't take it as seriously as you ****s do.

Thanks for clarification will have a closer look at sides in a short while as voted for my top 3, was struggling to pick between sides for a fourth and then noticed the Miandad x 2 so knowing there was a mix up somewhere didn't want to commit to a fourth vote as both Miandad sides were amongst what would've been close to half a dozen sides I was thinking for the fourth vote.

That final pick was a tough one, torn between KingKallis and Line and Length - Thought of Agarwal as a bit of a left-field pick but I really like the pace attack and aside from Agarwal the top order especially Smith - a big fan of Angelo Mathews too and think he is underbowled in Test Cricket and Warne along with Murali the best Test spinner. The openers and Botham at 7 just won it for KingKallis for me in terms of four seamers who could be match winners even though I prefer Line and Length's frontline four bowlers I think.

Aside from that all good squads and I'm looking back at some of the squads I haven't voted for and think, perhaps because of the nature of the draft that the squads not voted for still look very strong on the whole.
