    Nah, Chaturanga's only a depth option for me. Kusal's a starter.

    Would put Kusal into a trade for Dilshan though if you wanted, for sure.
  2. Eds E Ames

    I've tried to convince myself otherwise lots of times but a straight swap of Kaushal for Dilshan makes lots of sense for both of us, I reckon. I'd need a shitty keeper in return but we could work that out.

    EDIT: Actually, if Dilshan is allowed to bowl & keep then I wouldn't. I guess a straight swap would work.

    Dilshan is able to be my no.2 keeper and usually be my first part time spinner used so I hold him more valuable now.
  4. Cribbage RG Cribb

    Bumped for Eds.

    So Dilshan would count as a second keeper for you and it'd be fine, even if he bowled like every match he didn't keep in.
  5. Eds E Ames

    Kaushal would be by far your best keeper, plus you have Watson and Smith in your top six and Chaturanga as a reserve. Looks the ideal trade to me but okay.

    Chaturanga and Kaushal in the team >>> Dilshan and Vilas, IMO.

    Vilas has a good record in the best domestic comp in the world. He's also a world record holding gloveman so I took that into account when picking him. I want a top notch gloveman as you could argue I lack a dominant spearhead for my attack; can't be missing chances.

    Cribb to give me some help maybe on whether Kaushal would be on par keeping skill wise?
  7. Cribbage RG Cribb

    Kaushal's keeping is really good. I definitely wouldn't turn down a trade because I was worried about the standard of his keeping.

    Vilas has got a bit of a bad rap; he's an excellent gloveman and a capable number 7 bat at this level. I definitely wouldn't be looking to shaft him and give Dilshan the gloves, but Kaushal would be an upgrade.

    6 for 50 off 22 overs for Hazlewood :fap:
  13. Cribbage RG Cribb

    Haha I was just talking to Hunter about 10 minutes ago about how you actually picked Haze a bit early originally if anything but his performances since you picked him have made him an awesome pick.
  14. Benny BS Read

    Was pick 12 iirc. So much pace depth if Amir comes through the formula accurately.
  15. Gazza GJ Weaver

  16. Athlai JJD Heads

    Amir is probably going to be alright but means we can't set vbookie odds on your games I'm afraid.

    He's learnt his lesson lol.
