    You will be selecting from the players you expect to play in the first test between Australia and South Africa. Please pm everyone in Group B with 8 bids, within the next 4 days. The earlier both of you submit the better, so that subsequent rounds of bidding can take place sooner. I say everyone in Group B because, if for some reason I'm not able to run the silent auction, someone else can do so in that time.

    If you wish to work out a mutual deadline so that neither participant gains an unfair advantage by waiting til the last minute, that'd be great.

    When both sets of bids have been submitted, I will post them on this thread. Feel free to use this thread to communicate and figure out when's the earliest each of you can submit a bid.

    Here are the squads for the two teams:
    Australia
    Michael Clarke
    Shane Watson
    Ed Cowan
    David Warner
    Ben Hilfenhaus
    Michael Hussey
    Nathan Lyon
    James Pattinson
    Ricky Ponting
    Peter Siddle
    Mitchell Starc
    Matthew Wade

    South Africa
    Graeme Smith
    Hashim Amla
    AB De Villiers
    JP Duminy
    Imran Tahir
    Faf Du Plessis
    Jacques Kallis
    Rory Kleinveldt
    Morne Morkel
    Alviro Petersen
    Robin Peterson
    Vernon Philander
    Dale Steyn
    Jacques Rudolph
    Thami Tsolekile

    If you check the scoring system, you should infer that on average, 5 batsmen and 3 bowlers is the ideal composition. You want to pick as few bowlers as you can while still achieving the bowling quota. If you're confident about the 2 bowlers you have, than go for it. Not so sure about the 3 you've chosen, pick a 4th bowler or an all-rounder

    Not really.

    Fair. I honestly think picking on fb and then showing our picks on CF is silly. "Hiding draft patterns" seems a bit pointless to me.
