    If the participants could vote, I will vote for @ElRaja based on the inspired Eric Rowan pick alone.

    Participants can vote and list their top 3, of course. They should, in fact.

    We will do a final points-based tally based on people's rankings for the top 3 to determine the winner. The poll is just for fun.

    Personally love the XIs put together by brothers @Last Monetarist, @Thunderbolt14 and @ElRaja in that order. Great bowling line ups!

    Kings , and prince would enjoy facing your teams

    @Thunderbolt14 is the winner, in my opinion.

    With FDB being second and Abdullah719 third.

    imo @Ab Fan has the really good balance and depth of players, cant argue with @therealAB batting order, that is crazy strong, then @jeeteshssaxena cos he had the toughest letters to choose from imo.

    Sounds like a plan.

    Top 3 for me:

    1. @ElRaja (he could have picked 10 duds and Eric Rowan and still gotten my vote)
    2. @Ab Fan
    3. @Thunderbolt14

    Some interesting line-ups there.

    Top spot very close call between Last Monetarist and Thunderbolt14 for mine. Last Monetarist has a beastly attack Marshall, Lillee, Pollock, Warne, Jayasuriya and Stokes. Thunderbolt14 too has plenty of firepower and options with Wasim, Imran, Harris, Trueman, Barlow and the mighty Lyon. With the bat even though not as solid as some of the others on there I think these two bowling attacks might be too much to handle for the other sides in most conditions. Relentless. Overall I might have to give this one to Thunderbolt14 by a baby unicorn whisker I think his batting might just give him a slight edge.

    Third spot another tough call between therealAB and Ab Fan I feel. Both well balanced sides with nothing much separating the two overall. Ab Fan has a rock solid middle order probably best of the bunch while therealAB has opted to go for the extra batsman and just the four frontliners which might a pretty good call with Murali in the side who is used to bowling a shedload of overs. He also has a tactical nuke at seven ready for activation. With the ball Ab Fan has one heck of a new ball pairing in McGrath and Hadlee and two quality spin options but I feel for most conditions therealAB might have a bit more variety and firepower with both the bat and the ball on the whole. So again a very close call but I'm gonna have to give this one to therealAB by a chinese nose hair.

    I can see some very strange picks in this draft. My ranking would be....
    1. @Thunderbolt14 ...... IMO most balanced side. Batting lineup is good an ATG wicketkeeper, Captain and strong bowling lineup.
    2. @Last Monetarist ........ Bowling lineup is great
    3. I have two teams for 3rd positions
    @Ab Fan ............ again a balanced side
    @therealAB ......... scary batting line ATG keeper & spinner. only weak link is fast bowling which didn't
    excite me.
