Bruno Lawrence's Electric Revelation and Travelling Apparition Cricket Club

Discussion in 'CPL Cricket' started by HeathDavisSpeed, Dec 16, 2010.

    Disappointingly, Youssou N'Dour withdrew his sponsorship for the team after failing to make the knockout stages. For someone who knows nothing about cricket, he shows a very aggressive attitude towards abject failure.

    As such, we have appointed a new sponsor for the coming season in a deceased Kiwi actor's travelling band of minstrels.


    Season Three

    1. Cheteshwar Pujara
    2. Ben Stokes
    3. Virender Sehwag

    Season Two

    8. Irfan Pathan (3)
    9. Ramesh Powar (6/5)

    Whats with you and weird names?
  3. Hunter AD Hunt

    'Sif you'd bat god at 8.
  4. HeathDavisSpeed HT Davis

    I'm very anti naming teams in the American style.

    Albie and Ramesh will swap, actually.
  5. Hunter AD Hunt

    Albeh to bat 3.
  6. Athlai JJD Heads

    Was hoping this would have more Bruno.

  7. HeathDavisSpeed HT Davis

    Virat Kohli & Fawad Alam sign in. Looking pretty solid - certainly a more modern team that Youssou N'Dour were last season.

    S1/S2 Picks Comparison

    S1            		S2
    Albie Morkel		Makhaya Ntini
    Peter Siddle		Chaminda Vaas
    Jesse Ryder		Jesse Ryder
    Friedel de Wet		Sanath Jayasuriya
    Virat Kohli		Brad Hodge
    Fawad Alam		Mark Davies
    Irfan Pathan		Irfan Pathan
    Heino Kuhn		Heino Kuhn
    Stiaan van Zyl		Steve Tikolo
    Dale Benkenstein	Dale Benkenstein
    Ramesh Powar		Ramesh Powar
    Zander de Bruyn		Peter Fulton
    Shoaib Malik		Neil Wagner
    Actually, thinking that in many places we've got an upgrade on our picks from last season so far. Obviously in career terms, Ntini & Vaas are > Morkel and Siddle, but those retirement penalties won't be crippling us this season.

    I think that you were pretty silly for not keeping Hodge tbh.
  10. HeathDavisSpeed HT Davis

    He was definitely the next on the list for retention, but I thought we really took him a bit early given that he's retired from first class cricket and will presumably be hit by a small penalty.
  11. HeathDavisSpeed HT Davis

    Stiaan van Zyl in and completes the XI for now.
  12. Baxter MJ Deane

    Morkel's a better batsman than Powar isn't he?
    Feel free to trade me De Wet as well
  13. HeathDavisSpeed HT Davis

    That's a mistake with the additional benefit of stirring Huntay up a little.

    And on de Wet, I don't think you've got anyone that we'd like to trade at the moment.
  14. Hunter AD Hunt

    GIVE ME ALBEH YA ****.
  15. Farny AP Farnsworth

    I think you should give me Morkel for Rashid. He misses his brother, and you need a better spinner :p
  16. Hunter AD Hunt

    I think both of you need to give me my Morkels.
  17. Fungus K Fung

    First class stats:

    1. Heino Kuhn (+) (45.62)
    2. Fawad Alam (55.54, 34.34)
    3. Jesse Ryder (5/6) (44.30, 29.34)
    4. Virat Kohli (57.59)
    5. Stiaan van Zyl (43.06, 33.83)
    6. Dale Benkenstein (45.05, 34.79)
    7. Albie Morkel (4) (44.24, 29.97)
    8. Irfan Pathan (3) (31.01, 28.99)
    9. Ramesh Powar (6/5) (29.26, 29.44)
    10. Friedel de Wet (2) (16.38, 23.50)
    11. Peter Siddle (1) (15.29, 28.85)

    12. Zander de Bruyn (40.37, 38.96)
    13. Shoaib Malik (33.59, 30.01)
    14. Mohammad Wasim (35.49 - averaged over 50 for the last few seasons)
  18. HeathDavisSpeed HT Davis

    Looking ****ing good to me. And now we've got that monster Mohammad Irfan too, we've got all the backup we really need. Might go for a backup spinner though.
  19. Cribbage RG Cribb

    Mohammad Wasim was a very astute pick; I hadn't realised he'd finally started to score consistently domestically. Funnily enough, I was actually watching a replay of an old game on Foxtel in which he was dismissed for a golden duck when Fungus posted that pick up. At that stage though he had an ODI average over 40 and Ian Chappell was lauding his ability to bat under pressure and rescue his team from the mire (right before he was the middle man of a hat-trick).

    Anyway, I hope he gets a game. (Y)

    I only vaguely recall him playing for Pakistan, and I guess at the time it was a bit of an odd selection, but he's really kicked on in the last few seasons to become a good international player. How do I know that he would be a good international player? He's not being selected by Pakistan.
