    ***The Ultimate Cricket League**

    Im proposing a new forum cricketing league, which can be played and enjoyed by all. What is going to happen is, you choose out of all the test and one-day playing nations, choose your starting XI, grounds and ground conditions for the test or one-day international games and i simulate them, like most other games on this forum but there is a twist. The Game will be played ina league format where over 20 test series and over 50 ODI are played throughout the season, and the top 8 will play off in the finals series, another twist. Each team is given a specific salary cap based on there rankings in world cricket, with these salary caps you may choose an 18 man squad for the season. For example i choose India my salary cap is 10million, i may buy 18 men, from any nation, though i must stay under the salry cap. Note:there will be marquee players. So, basically its sort of like football or rugby league but with Cricket and i simulate based on averages.
    For this to go ahead i need all those interested to put there names below, i will need about 20 people for this to go ahead. if you are willing to help me with this project, say that in your post, please don't ask me if you can manage Aus or Eng or anyone else yet because i will sort that out later.
    It should be a great fun game, so those interested put your name below. Thanks

    You will have to talk to James about permission before you go ahead with signups

    Interesting idea. Count me in if it goes ahead. Also, I dont think that there is any need to start a separate forum. Just 1 thread will be enough, but it will have over 1000+ posts once it happens.

    Don't see what the nations have to do with it, since you can choose anyone from anywhere.
