Square Drive little help regarding the last pick ? So far weve got 3 batsmen, 3 bowlers & 3 allrounders. One pick left. Im thinking of going for a guy whos relatively active but an allrounder. If 3 player role changes are available it should be okay I guess. Should I go for it ?

Hi bro, good to see you be active
Just to let you know, we’ll probably have to change role of 3 allrounders out of 4, because specialists tend to do better unless the allrounder has a very high contract.

We have 5 changes so I'll sort it out based on activity. Its better not to be a WK since we already have 2 intl WK's but they can play a total of 9 games, so whoever will be a WK would get fewer games.
maddgenius would be online later tonight to discuss

Hmm, never been a huge fan of all-rounders in these type of leagues tbh, they tend to be useless with the bat and expensive with the ball. Plus we already have Asghar, two more emerging spinners seems kind of pointless.

My vote's for the second combo.

In one of the leagues I once played as an AR with the highest contract and contributed with both bat and ball, and the team won the T20 tournament.

I'm fine with the second combo, just a bit wary that if we play the allrounder, his 4 overs could cost us a game

Yaad nahi hai yaar :danish

I think initially it was a high one.

Contributions were middling, 1-2 wickets occasionally and a few runs with just one decent knock.

Don't go with all-rounders unless you're gonna give them a higher contract otherwise they're gonna get hit for runs and will give very short cameos or just short innings.

We'll go with 5 specialist bowlers and try emerging AR in a couple of games

Yeah that's what I'm thinking too. A bit confused to go with an allrounder with a higher contract and play him regularly, or like maddgenius said play 5 specialists
