to give some credit, if mitchell is being considered as a #3 then it worked.
Chapman is a 5. The only issue I'd forsee is if there is a lack of flexibility with the order, although Latham has done the job well in the past. The issue was Nicholls soaking up 20 balls and same with Ravindra - honestly, it would have been better if Sodhi and Matt Henry batted thereChapman is batting too low in the order. Ridiculous. Latham was out there batting like it was a test match, soaking up crucial balls and overs. ffs.
Don’t spend too much time on it as it will do your head inI still don’t understand just how the IPL works. The amount of no name English and Aussie players you see in squads and yet someone like Daryl Mitchell can’t get a gig?

Just about the only interesting thing about the IPL auction is the interaction between the owners and some advisorsmarketing
english and aussies are also just considered inherently better.
these sides aren't owned and run by the best and brightest, and winning isn't the only priority.
a motivated cwpl drafter could draft a championship winning side within 3 seasons. i'd take them on that bet too.
