[DRAFT 1] Kriterion_BD, eugene, CrimsonAvenger, jaybro

Post by brmtaylor.com admin » Tue Mar 24, 2020 9:42 am

We'll do it in snake order:

#1 Kriterion_BD
#2 eugene
#3 CrimsonAvenger
#4 jaybro
#5 jaybro
#6 CrimsonAvenger
#7 eugene
#8 Kriterion_BD
#9 Kriterion_BD
#10 eugene

etc, etc

The rules are you can pick any player who has at least 1 Test/ODI/T20I cap for Zimbabwe. Once someone has picked a player, they can not be picked by anyone else.

Once each poster - and discussion is encouraged as we go - has a completed XI (44 selections total), the rest of us will vote on who has the strongest team. As a baseline, let's say the XI is to compete in an ODI vs Australia at HSC.

For each of the posters participating in this one (Kriterion_BD, eugene, CrimsonAvenger, jaybro) when you make a selection please include a template like this so it's easy to keep track of who has already been selected.
Kriterion_BD: Player Playersurname (#1), Player Playersurname (#8), Player Playersurname (#9), ...
eugene: Player Playersurname (#2), Player Playersurname (#7), ...
CrimsonAvenger: Player Playersurname (#3), Player Playersurname (#7), ...
jaybro: Player Playersurname (#4), Player Playersurname (#5), Player Playersurname (#10), ...

Kriterion_BD, you're up first!

This should be exciting

Happy to take a deputy selector for some else who wants to get involved? As long as it’s not Mamba 😂😂😂

Yeah, I'm not sure what teams 3 and 4 can do at all to balance out not having Andy and Heath. The best guys by far, taken already.

So, my first pick is Grant Flower.

Over to you for 4 and 5 jaybro.

Need to get my wicket keeper secured early as there are really only three elite keeper batsman; them being Andy, Taibu and of course BT

So with pick 4 I'll take Brendan Taylor

Pick 5 I'll take Neil Johnson

Hahah yes I'm too predictable or maybe these guys were standouts? Had to get a keeper in didn't want to be left with picking from Regis, Coventry, Mutumbami, James or Moor?

Yeah, more than you being predictable, those were the obvious next best guys available :)
