Sorry was playing some Friday Night T20 cricket (don't ask).

Pick 42: Peter Handscomb - Test Centurion, average of 38 at Shield level. Captain of Victoria. Will be forced to get on the front dog under my leadership.

Pick 43: Scott Boland - Leader of the Victorian attack. Nearly 250 wickets @ 26 in the Shield and in eth-dog current Shield team of the season (I think).

2 Victorians also means I can claim anti-Vic bias if I'm not declared the winner.

Felt like I needed some sort of spinner in there even if he's just a part timer, he and Marnus can be options in that way

This pick is based largely on potential, but I’ll give Josh Philippe a shot to open with Khawaja. All the talent in the world.

Also tossing up whether to open with Wade instead and drop JP down to keep. Will mull it over as the draft continues.

The way I play I spend plenty of time on my phone tbf.
I had you pegged as the consummate cricket lover who updates the scoreboard at the end of the over after he knicks off, not the selfish campaigner who sulks on his phone all day!

McDermott seems to batting better this and does somehow average over 40 this year. Plus he has to play on the bowling friendly track of Tasmania

Stoinis will be my all rounder

I really want a left-armer to round out my attack, and seeing as how he's expressed a desire to return to the whites/isn't retired and is therefore eligible for the draft (happy for eth-dog to confirm this), I'll take one of the best fast bowlers in the country - Jason Behrendorff.

Look I'll be honest you've nailed me in one there. I was just trying to be self-deprecating haha. I genuinely love scoring.

Pick 54: Joel Paris - To round out my attack I'll take a left armer who averages a miserly 23 with the ball in the Shield. Also more than capable with the bat at no.8 again averaging 23 in the Shield.

Pick 55: Bryce Street - Will continue his QLD opening partnership with Joe Burns. Will be able to blunt any attack thrown at him and get us draws when required.

I didn't realise this guy had such an impressive record. Daniel Solway to shore up my middle order with a FC batting average of 48! Granted, he's only 10 games into his career, but slim pickings to be had at this stage.
