Half of trundler's team is captain?

Also one tip, list your team with full names. I think psychologically I tend to pay less attention to and therefore underrate teams listed with only last names. There is also a question of who you mean (Richard Hadlee or Dayle Hadlee for example in some draft).


Hall of Fame Member
I think having just last names is basically saying look how many household names I have in this XI don't even need to go into detail

Worked on me as I voted trundler


Hall of Fame Member
Hollow victory, that. The greatness of my XI is undeniable - the votes are for second.

Trundler voted for himself. Surely the cardinal sin of voting for oneself incurs a penalty of instant disqualification? As far as I am concerned, Teuton and MrPrez are currently joint leaders with five votes each.

Wouldn't a one vote penalty just neutralise trundler's vote? Or is this one vote penalty in addition to a voiding of trundler's vote for himself.


International Captain
Congratulations to trundler for the win.

Once again thanks to everyone for taking part and sticking with it to the end.

Looks like I've missed this but on a cursory look I'd have voted for Trundler as well.

Tempted to vote for zebra as I rate his bowling, but not his batting

CowCorner has the most underrated side, should have been on the podium at least

Wow, thanks for at least highlighting the essence of quality in my team.

If only I should have put an asterisk next to every single name like trundler has done...
