    I'll pick BB's man K.S. Ranjitsinhji and his nephew Duleep or Kumar Shri Duleepsinhji.

    Best XI. Very good pick btw was hoping they'd slip for another round or two

    Just clarifying some rules.

    24 hour time out seems most fair. If the game is running too slow, maybe change it at a later round.

    Sorry mate but I don't think there are enough quality families to allow having nine teams in the draft but I'll put you down as a first reserve.

    Metallics has had his 12 hours by my count; Mr Fertang up now, surely?

    No fair point. Actually having read the pertinent posts it seems most likely 24 hours got the nod.

    Vote for 12 myself.

    I like 18 hours.

    12 is pretty tough at times, 24 drags it out a bit too much.

    Well i think that's 24 hours on any measurement so I shall proceed with my medical choices, a doctor first and the coroner for later

    WG and EM Grace

    Round arm bowling will be my secret weapon

    My selections are Clive Lloyd and his cousin Lance Gibbs.

    Clive Lloyd was such a fantastic test batsman. He was so imposing against any pace attack. Will also make a terrific captain for my side. Brilliant in the field too, one of the greats.

    Lance Gibbs is such an underrated spin bowler considering the feats he achieved over his test career. Miserly, and yet could still run through a side.

    I'm thinking close family by blood, 1st cousins, uncle/nephew, brothers, father/son, grandfather/grandson and by marriage either brother in law or father in law/ son in law
