    Sheep Draft

    Looking at setting up a new draft, completely different to any of the other excellent ones we've had in the past 6 months or so. Every 24 hours or so I'll ask a new question. Eg: Name a Left hander who has a highest score under 200.

    Everyone emails their selections to sheepdraft@hotmail.com - If you are the only person with your answer you get that player in your XI, if someone else has the same player you have to re-pick.

    If after 2 or 3 selections [depending on numbers] there are still some participants without a player I will randomly choose one of the draftees to chose any Test Cricketer who fits the criteria.

    Understand? Let me know if you are keen.

    For sure I'm in. Enjoyed the Cricket Families draft. This sounds an even more interesting concept.

    Best aspect of this draft; no more tedious wait for players to make their turn. Removes some of the fun when you must wait 2/3 days for your turn to come. Plenty of possibilities with this draft NUFAN, great thinking.

    Isn't this question basically - name a left-handed bowler?

    It might be a good idea to ban research btw, because otherwise it's just a competition to see who can do the most googling.

    LOL yeah was just an example. Didn't want to give away my questions.

    I don't actually have a problem with research because if one other person is thinking the same as you it's going to be a problem.
