There are some seriously good teams and its not easy to pick Top 3.

Anyways, I feel that JOJOXI, Fuller Pilch & Pothas have drafted amazing teams.

Whatever it takes!!!
Had a rough current and last week at work. I really did not follow the draft games closely enough to play better.

Still think my side is the best though. :p

Really hard to pick 3 teams. Lots of excellent sides built by obviously experienced drafters.

JOJOXI - He's missing a Jack Hobbs or a similarly great opener instead of Warner to really take this team to the next level. What I really like though is the batting from 3 to 8. Barrington and Smith sound like a pairing that'll bat for ages. I'm not sure how well Flower bats when he wears the gloves and I don't know if Benaud and Grimmett are the right pairing considering they're both leggies.

FP - Lovely openers and YK at 4 plus Waugh at 5, nice lower order pairings as well. Not quite convinced by Marnus as yet and I'd have liked a better fast bowler in that attack, but apart from this, a top team for sure.

ankit - My only gripe is the opener. I might have preferred Worrell opening instead of Dravid. Apart from that one last pick that ruined it a bit this is simply the best team.

trundler - Love this bowling attack. McGrath and Ambrose!! Wow! The batting is not quite as eye-catching.

ataraxia - Excellent team on the whole and well-balanced. I haven't yet figured out how to rate Ashwin's bowling in Tests so there's a question mark for me there but this is a brilliantly structured side.

Pothas - Brilliant bowling attack and decent batting. The batting probably a lot depends on Hammond a bit.

hb - What am I looking at here?

Himannv - Pff, best team.

kk - He's done it again hasn't he. Excellent bowling attack although I think it's the O'Reilly pick that really lifts the bowling up. Perfectly balanced batting side as well.

Michael - Nice team. I don't know how to rate Jadeja and Latham yet. Love nos 3 to 6 - particularly that Ponting, Tendulkar, Pollock combo.

Teuton - Superb bowling attack and good batting although I think it's down to that Sobers Imran double double.

I still managed an ATG opening duo as well as Weekes and Kohli so I think that's plenty of batting given my bowling attack. Every team is carrying a couple of sub ATG bats so Clarke and Dexter are still fine IMO.

I think I was just blown away by the bowling and then saw the batting and thought it didn't quite have that same feeling. Maybe just needed a star batsman somewhere in there. Anyway I haven't voted yet. Still thinking on it.

Yeah, having an ATG+ like Tendulkar or Hammond would've really sealed the deal admittedly.

Yes sir. I am very happy to have such gun bowling line up of,

Garner
Philander
Roberts
Miller
O'Reilly

Sutcliffe and Gooch can wear out the bowlers and Harvey and Lara can do their magic before de Villiers & Miller murders them.
