Can't believe you stole Smitty.
Haha yours was different. I mean weird cases of cricinfo putting the "Fielding position: wicket keeper" on good domestic bats who are part-time keepers and then people picking them up thinking they're keepers. It actually happens with Puttick every time without fail.

Pretty happy with my batting depth and seam quartet. Maybe a little light on a genuine spinner given shillingfords current ban
Shillingford is a fairly decent pick IMO. Yeah the bans a bit shit but he went alright. One of the better spinners out
Decent side, but I suspect it might be a little too early for the side to really compete.
Surely Watson should bat top 4?
Well I would have used that Bailey pick to grab someone who can play as an all rounder or be solid at 8 at least IMO.
Starc could easily bat 8 in this afaic. Was why I took him 2nd.
agreed but you'd want a bit more after that IMO.
Plenty picks yet.
Yeah Bailey was a weird pick. Watson means you don't necessarily need four specialist bowlers, but I think the bloke you stick at 7 should be able to bowl some seam-up stuff even if he's a batting allrounder.
Tbh I just went Bailey because he's easily the best backup bat for my side available IMO. One at least will underperform so now I have cover. Just as hazlewood provides depth.
Neither likely to be in first choice XI

14&15 - Parnell/Plunkett/De Silva
Bailey may play over Klinger with Watto to bat 3 and Bailey 6
Probably only real places I am a little weak is genuine spin specialists and maybe weak with Vilas then Dilshan for the gloves.
I'd say we could be organizing a trade come draft end.
Vilas would be a great understudy to one of your experienced keepers. Will look at your squad so when the trades open I can offer a mutually benif
