    New Game - 3 selectors needed :)

    Here's your chance to surpass the IPL franchise system by picking Test teams....

    So I need the first 3 Selectors to nominate themselves and then pick their team one player at a time…only catch, I nominate the players from the ICC rankings…

    Must pick 2 Openers from
    1 M.L. Hayden
    2 G.C. Smith
    3 V. Sehwag
    4 A.N. Cook
    5 A.J. Strauss
    6 C.H. Gayle

    Must pick # 3-5 Batsmen from
    1 M.E.K. Hussey
    2 R.T. Ponting
    3 K.C. Sangakkara
    4 Mohammad Yousuf
    5 J.H. Kallis
    6 D.P.M.D. Jayawardena
    7 S. Chanderpaul
    8 Younis Khan
    9 K.P. Pietersen

    Must pick # 6 from
    1 M.J. Clarke
    2 S.R. Tendulkar
    3 R. Dravid

    or Allrounder
    1 D.L. Vettori
    2 A. Flintoff
    3 J.D.P. Oram

    Must pick 1 Wicketkeeper (umm no ICC rankings, so Aussie Tragic rankings apply)
    1 M.V. Boucher
    2 B.B. McCullum
    3 M.S. Dhoni

    Must pick 3 Pace Bowlers from
    1 D.W. Steyn
    2 S.R. Clark
    3 B. Lee
    4 M. Ntini
    5 R.J. Sidebottom
    6 W.P.U.J.C. Vaas
    7 Shoaib Akhtar
    8 S.E. Bond
    9 C.D. Collymore

    Must pick 1 Spinner from
    1 M. Muralidaran
    2 A. Kumble
    3 Danish Kaneria

    Okay, first in best dressed, pick players in any order

    So we go one at a time right, 1st owner picks a name, then the 2nd owner picks from the remaining, etc?


    We should do 1-2-3-3-2-1-1-2-3, etc, so the 1st owner does not have a huge advantage.

    ummm, rather follow schoolyard cricket rules of one at a time....if you like I can pick a number between 1-10 and whoever is closest picks first....I think it's not much of an advantage as do you pick bowlers, openers, spinner, batsmen or WK first?

    Okay, first Franchise round is from:

    Jamie 999ers
    The Silentstriker Pigeons
    KP's Dollars

    Let's just go in that order, but be warned SS will pick pace bowlers first
