    It's actually a Black Sheep draft.

    Okay this is about to start in a few moments.

    To play all you have to do is post something in this thread before 6pm Australian EST on Thursday (just over 24 hours from now) and send an email to sheepdraft@hotmail.com with your first selection.

    I'll give an example of how this will work just assuming ten people are in it lets call them a b c d e f g h i j.
    EXAMPLE: Select a cricketer with a batting average over 50
    So I receive the following emails:
    a bradman b sangakarra c hayden d tendulkar e tendulkar f gavaskar g hussey h kallis i bradman j strauss
    I'll then go like this:
    a bradman b pass c pass d tendulkar e tendulkar f pass g pass h pass i bradman j fail averages under 50.

    so then while i ask another question a d e i j have to pick again lets say they pick
    a hutton d sangakarra e hutton i swaugh j dravid

    it would then be
    a fail d fail [he's already been chosen] e fail i pass j pass

    then
    a ponting d nourse e dravid

    it would mean
    a FAIL d pass e FAIL

    so I would then list everyones picks on here..
    A FAIL B Nourse C Hayden D Nourse E FAIL F Gavaskar G Hussey H Kallis I SWaugh J Dravid

    This means A and E have had their selections taken from them - I would then pick at random or say the next person who posts online picks any cricketer not mentioned who fits the criteria.

    And on to the next question.

    Sounds confusing, you betcha.. Game to start very soon.

    In a nutshell that could be correct OR you could select a great player as everyone else is thinking of picking players no one will.

    Selection 1
    You are required to pick someone who has played a Test Match against John Traicos.



    Email your pick to sheepdraft@hotmail.com and please write your forum name in the subject. You need to post in this thread at least once [if you haven't already] for your selection to count.

    Some very decent names on the list. Will be interested to see who everyone picked. Very quirky and well thought out question to begin with NUFAN.

    Cheers Noble One, just in the process of thinking up some other questions for later rounds, have to make the questions tricky with not too many options.

    Just a reminder it's not too late to join, tick under 20 hours to go.
