**** that's Noble, Roberts and Shrewsbury all gone in one round. All 3 were central to my plans, in that order.

I'll take Harbhajan Singh, the best of the 31+ average bowlers with over 400 wickets at over 4wpm. And unlike other Indian spinners he played around half his games away from home.

Bhajji was crucial to my plans so even though bowlers averaging >31 being the least ***y group, I got him Asap.

First Class Debutant
I managed:

Saeed Anwar
Geoffrey Boycott
Ricky Ponting
Sachin Tendulkar
Andy Flower
Warwick Armstrong 5
Jock Cameron+
Imran Khan 3
Shane Warne 4
Malcolm Marshall 1
Andy Roberts 2

Think i lost because most people simply didn't know about Armstrong and I'm a little pissed he has since seamlessly entered the drafting pool :laugh:
Think a lot of people on CW don't rate Armstrong, I was originally gonna draft him over noble and pick a different under 32 batsmen but Armstrong was in the e/f atg Australian Xi on here and assumed people just don't rate him.


International Debutant
Ted McDonald will be my next selection please

Charter 77 so Far

Viv Richards (*) (Bat 48-52)
Les Ames (+) (Bat 40-44)
Wilfred Rhodes (Bat <32)
Ted McDonald (Bowl >31)


International Vice-Captain
For those more in the know on SC cricket, was his average a product of his time where spinners weren't rated? or were Pak conditions geared towards Imran and the like? Would he have a better record if he played more in India?

anyone know?

Fuller Pilch

International Captain
Dunno. He had a 1st class bowling average of 23.24 so it is surprising (and good for my team) that his test average is so high. According to Wikipedia Graham Gooch rated him ahead of Warne.
