I’ve tried to show some loyalty to the England team other than smith who no doubt will milk some home runs

Haha..not sure. Would probably be a trundler - Aussie batsmen are used to facing trundlers from their own Shield competition.
So who's the lead trundler for England?
Anderson, Broad and Woakes are all high-quality.

Or I could go with Vince or Malan.

Knowing my luck, the one guy I leave out will do well in IHAG. :-)

It’s one point per run, five per catch, twenty for stumping and 25 for a wicket. Pick five players one of whom you select to score double points.

Used to be 20 for a run out but personally I don’t include those as it can be hard unless you’ve watched the match to accurately ascribe credit to the right players, do you include the player who receives the throw? What about relay throws? Etc.

Then the winners are ranked according to how many points are scored.

Hey, nice to see you back here, Ted.
All well, I hope?

Cook?

766 runs in 2010-11 not enough that you want a repeat now? :grin:

Lungi called, he wants this team but to replace Moeen with Ishant Sharma, If that's not possible then he will take Jake Ball seeing as Overton is more likely to replace him after being dropped and possibly play well
