Sorry, you'll have to change your pick, your letter was D, I don't think the de in his name is part of his last name, unless someone can tell me otherwise
It's always d

De Kock

De Villiers

Du plessis

We never refer to them as just villiers or plessis

Similarly just Kock will be just weird

Looks like I got the timing of the pick right

As a matter of fact even cricinfo recognises their last name as de Kock or de Villiers and not just Kock or Villiers

Fair enough, but just for simplicity purpose we will not allow for this draft, just to keep it consistent
I guess no one is left with a 'D' for the remaining picks and @ddrap14 already found someone else so it all works out

Might as well tell @Parth D that his two O' picks are invalid in that case if you're going against the prefixes for surnames. And nobody can claim that Shakib Al Hasan is an A. Or Inzy is a U.

Just being facetious though. I have no issues with the rule.

I am going ahead assuming that @ahmedleo414 will allow the old picks which are already picked till now

my pick coming in 5

11. Stuart Board
It's no joke for a seam bowler to take 500 wickets in Tests. And he is just 34!

Broad began his career as a pure bowler, only to be used as the part-time batter in the middle phase of his career.
but in the recent years, he has again started concentrating mostly on his bowling while translates to his performances as well.
