Drafters had to pick a first name, then a surname, then make a team out of those 2 names!

Players were allowed to be used by multiple teams, so Graeme Pollock and Graeme Smith feature in 2 teams.

Think this is one of those rare occasions where I'm actually a good shout for best team

I like Jack Pollock but find the John/Jack link a bit tenuous


State Vice-Captain
Yeah I'm still not clear why that was the case, but hey, I'm not making the rules. :)

Thanks for the vote!

tbh its because my dad and grandfather are john/jack. one has john on their birth certif and goes by jack, and vice versa for the other one. maybe my families just weird but i thought it was normal

anyway im annoyed i havent got a single vote. i feel like my batting is the strongest... i guess rafique is terrible tho


Cricketer Of The Year
1) Howe missed out due to lack of having a regular and full time wicket-keeper.

2) Jack Pollock, Ian Taylor gets my vote for having a nicely balanced teams.


Y no Afghanistan flag
I just voted for one team, aldo's. I'm still not sure that Jacques Kallis and fleetwood-smith should be allowed. You won't find fleetwood-smith beside stevesmith in the yellow pages (if they still exist).

The positive about my team is that I think my worst player is better than everyone else's worse. Since I'm all me me me who do you think my worst is, Bruce Taylor?

Victor Ian

International Vice-Captain
I accidentally chose only one team - I was also going to pick the Ian's. I can't figure out how to undo my selection to do it again. Oh well - stiff.
