International Coach
My vote goes to @trundler and @Patience and Accuracy+Gut for drafting well balanced Test teams.

Ankit drafted a fine team but I don't feel like voting for a team that is forced to bats VVS at No.7. The all conditions all rounders team is very interesting but sorry can't consider it to vote in a draft where more successful openers and bowling units are competing.


Cricketer Of The Year
Sorry L&L. That's unlucky but we had to cut the list at some point and I've given the explanation for it in the op.

I was abstaining as one of the contestants but happy to give my tie breaker vote to Trundler - only one from top 3 who got my vote in initial round.
