He was my first choice among the coaches. I picked him on my first go. I guess Dilscoop did not notice this one? Okay, lets see what Dilscoop has got to say here. :)

Thank you CEO :up: Exactly what I had been working on. And I've got to say, auctioning for the all-time ODI draft a month back helped a lot.

Thank you. I went by stats. Alfonso Thomas has 187 wickets in 167 matches with an average of 21.3. He has the highest number of wickets for a paceman and is amongst the best pace bowlers in T20s in terms of average, strike rate and economy rate. Umar Gul has an average of 17.
..
Charl Langeveldt happens to have 100+ wickets as well with an ave of 20. Dwayne Smith has good stats with the ball too.
...
The names aren't as attractive as they could be, I know. But since this tourney is based on stats more importantly, my pace bowling attack is pretty good IMHO. What I think is, I could have opted for better spin options but they were taken already.

But my group seems to be a really tough one. K C, LA and M H are going to be really hard to beat. Texas and Denver can be unpredictable with the results too.

For you the tough one should be LA Kings and KC. LA kings er kono spinner nai... tomar home game e pitch kemon hobe? if it is possible then you could go with a spin oriented attack (mishra, ashwin etc) with pitch favoring spinners

I agree. LA Kings is a really strong team. And to their advantage, it's their home game and not mine. Amar home game er pitch ta motamoti turning wicket. But I'm pretty sure Maysun bro's is pretty much the opposite. But still I think I will be going with a 3-pacers and 2-spinners attack. My opening pair needs to fire like the warm ups.
