    An important question this, and one we need consensus on: is the limit for the span of each team 100 or 99?

    That one year could make a huge difference for most teams at the end.

    I pick Michael Clarke, who played a special knock of 151 in Bangalore on debut and a 130 odd in Chennai on a turner.

    A bit of left arm spin too.

    Root at 4, Clarke at 5 and AB at 6 with gloves on completes my middle order.

    Only one. Another opener is needed though.

    Saved my years by going with Rashid Khan

    same, he was in my plans too but couldnt pull trigger given his lack of experience in long format cricket. i was hoping others would think the same and i could swoop in if i was stuck for a shorter career player. alas not

    I had less chance to pick Rashid Khan anyways as my 4 main bowlers are done and having Rashid would have weakened batting a bit. Let's see whom I get to pick in remaining turns
