Whatever it takes!!!
Teuton, Pothas, AndrewB. Mostly balanced sides and rather even at the face of it, so went with the best bowling attacks IMO.

This was quite difficult to vote on. I think I've changed my vote at least 3 times now.
Haha, you withdrew your vote to my team. Fair enough though, I am not expecting too many votes. Did poorly in this draft. Didn't have a real strategy throughout.

Ah, sorry about that mate. I've changed it multiple times. Lots of very good teams I think. Now that I've looked at yours again, I feel like changing it back to you. :laugh:
