so basically in this draft, players submitted a parameter each, and i gave two along with GI Joe, which were then randomized and handed out round by round, culminating in the final round in which the drafters picked with their parameter. vote for, at most, 2.

the parameters were as follows:
-a player who has a photo of them getting hit in the nuts
-a player who has never played against the windies
-a player with a home batting average seven higher or home bowling average five lower than their respective away averages
-a player who was dismissed by phil tufnell
-a player who has scored 1k+ runs against 5+ teams
-a player who went two calendar years (jan-dec) without scoring a hundred or taking five wickets: they don't have to be consecutiv
-a player with a batting average under 30 who in your final team cannot bowl or wicketkeep
-a player with the same name or surname as the real name or moniker of a wwe/wcw wrestler
-a player who bats and bowls with opposite hands
-a player who is at least two metres tall
-a player who was the last wicket to fall in a losing fourth innings chase with 25 or less still to get

i think i copypasted your team in to the middle of his

also regarding the height of walsh there's this referring to him and curtly:

900+ Test wickets between them

230 Tests

421 wickets shared as an opening bowling pair over 49 tests – a world record

Courtney holds two batting records! 43 Test ducks and 61 not outs

Both over 6 foot 7 inches tall

A very natural and funny pair on stage – this is their first ever joint speaking tour, a world first!

Between them they own the biggest ‘Little black book’ in the Commonwealth, maybe even the World!

You know what they say about very tall guys….……they can’t use chopsticks!
we're all in it for fun so that's enough for me i guess

Where's that from?

I also demand to see sources for van der Bijl and Le Roux's heights.

How come only two teams actually fit the criteria? Most people chose batting all-rounders instead of sub 30 average batsmen, or else people not tall enough. Well done OS, yours is the only side I can vote for.

in regards to the heights there was all one source that said at least two metres - a mistake on my part, i should have asked for a standardised source - for example the source watson sent me for grieg was wisden while you get van der bijl at two metres from wikipedia, etc.

not sure about the batting allrounders... people might have thought they could trick the system by not naming them to bowl but still keeping the implication there?

I voted for Howe and HB but see no one else has - either you all lack judgment or I need to go and lie down in a darkened room
