I might go for some Jos Buttler instead of Johnson Charles if he doesn't look like opening and keeping.

Could we do our own thing where we make no swaps throughout the tournament? Everyone to post up their initial team and we can calculate who wins at the end.

In that case, We got to do it here and someone has to do the calculations every game

Or you know, we just don't make any swaps throughout the tournament and let it calculate the result for us.

But, do you think all of them we have in the group see this thread and follow our rule : not to do swapping?

The majority of my squad seem to be in good form, but I'm thinking that Guptill and Junaid Khan in for Perera and Ashwin might be a winner.

I don't really get what the best tactics are in this game, given the fact that you are allowed 75 changes - it just seems like a very high amount.

But you can only change out a player once, is that correct? So if you have a player, you change him for another player, you cant get the original player back?

Could set it up as a separate competition? Make every team in it visible so that we can see if anyone has changed their team?

These tend to be won by poeple who make changes for every game - which is why I think Daemon is on to a winner, we just agree not to make changes and put our selection skillz to the test

Hi i'm new here, I just wanted to say I agree with you both, my team is now public...

I know the comp is about to start but why don't we just all post our best XI's in here - and at the end see who's side would have won? It would be easy (I think) to tally up the points for each individual player. I kind of want a go at trying to win overall so I've picked a good number of Indian and South Africans.


My team if I wasn't changing players would be:

Neil Anblomee

Hashim Amla
Chris Gayle
Shane Watson
Virat Kohli
Mohammad Hafeez (captain)
Thisara Perera
Johnson Charles
Nuwan Kulasekara
Mitchell Starc
Junaid Khan
Tim Southee

Ok in that case here is my team-


Stacey Richards Barmy Army
Amla
Watson
Gayle
Trott
Root
Kohli
Dhoni (captain)
McKay
Rampaul
Anderson
McClenaghan
 

Prensel

U19 Cricketer
Shane Watson*
Chris Gayle
Tillakaratne Dilshan
Mohammad Hafeez
Jean-Paul Duminy
Ravindra Jadeja
Dinish Karthik
Mitchell Starc
Junaid Khan

I've done a few stupid decisions so far. Definitely should have picked a captain from the opening match and I picked someone from Pakistan last match who didn't even play.

It would be useful if the standings showed how many modifications each team has remaining so you could tell just how rubbish/good you are going.

That's rather appalling for a first round, two wickets and one fifty between them. Robbie P carrying the side, with the bat no less, and Finn hasn't even played.

At least Amla got a score today.
