    That's not how I presumed it would work - I presumed anyone that picked someone who matched with someone else would just not get a pick for that round. Simple.
    Or something.

    Good work James W, just send through an email to sheepdraft@hotmail.com with your choice [I'm now at work and don't have access to hotmail].

    I just wanted to include this rule to the game:
    Whenever 2 or more selectors choose the same player he is automatically banned for the rest of the game. The player must fit the criteria.

    Also is everyone happy with 3 chances before someone picks for them would you rather 2? Will do a snap vote for the next 3 people who answer, this would start from round 2.
    9 1/2 hours to go...

    I like to make things complicated. But nah, I hope it's clear enough.

    Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.

    Ok, so are the failed ones eligible for selection again or are they out of bounds? How many chances at a question do we have (2 or 3) before losing the pick? Do we not get to see the successful ones?

    Amazing support for the Indians for the first selection didn't pay off with 7 draftees forced to make a second pick with Tendulkar, Dev and Kumble all banned.

    This means I need a re-pick within 24 hours from everyone with a fail beside their names..If you pick a player that has already been accepted that's tough luck and will mean you'll have a 2nd strike beside your name. After 3 remember someone picks a player for you.

    In the meantime I'll ask a second question.

    For those on round 1 selection 2 your answer will take preference to someone on selection 2 pick 1 if you pick the same person.

    Second question to come in a few minutes.

    Failed picks so Tendulkar, Dev and Kumble are out for the entire game.
    You get 3 strikes, after 3 strikes someone choices the person for you.
    No, you don't get to see the successful players until the round so like selection 1 in this case is complete.

    Selection 2
    You are required to select a Cricketer who took 6 wickets or more in an innings on Test debut (it can be first or second innings, that doesn't matter).



    Email to sheepdraft@hotmail.com your answer within the next 24 hours or so.

    Don't forget for those who did not get a player accepted in round 1, I need your re-pick too.

    Just a heads up that those of you who are making your second pick for the first question should still make your first pick for the second question.

    When we get a bit further through this, I'll leave a bigger gap so you can think about the balance of the team a little more. At the moment I don't think it's that important.
