    The 90s and 00s banlisted draft thread

    So guys, I'm going to start a draft. The rules for the draft are as follows:

    First ten people to sign up get to play. I am one of those 10.
    The draft is for test matches only.
    Players may only be picked who played in the 90s or the 00s.
    Players picked will be picked based on their form in the 90s and/or 00s (i.e. if a player has played for like 1 year in 1990 and had an ordinary time there is no point picking them, even if they were a Great in the 80s).
    22 players are banned from being selected until the final two rounds. These players are based on the best teams of the 90s and 00s that I identified in another thread (with some minor alterations so that players didn't end up in both teams):

    90s.

    Boon
    Gooch
    Tendulkar
    Lara
    De Silva
    S Waugh
    Healy
    Warne
    Akram
    Ambrose
    Donald

    00s:

    Hayden
    G Smith
    Ponting
    Dravid
    Sangakkara
    Kallis
    Gilchrist
    Pollock
    Steyn
    McGrath
    Murali

    All other players are able to be picked, provided that they played in the 90s or 00s.
    For rounds 1-8, contestants will be assigned a random order in the odd round (1,3,5,7) and that order will be reversed in the next even round. The order in round 9 will be random. The order in round 10 will be random, then reversed in round 11.

    In round 10 players may only pick someone from the 90s team.
    In round 11 players may only pick someone from the 00s team.

    The winner will be decided through a public poll.

    Also, just some clarification, is that Devon Smith banned from the 00s list or Graeme
    Mark or Steve Waugh?

    Thanks for the welcome. As you can see i joined a few months ago but have mostly spent my time reading older threads (so I'm well versed in all the vs threads). I liked the look of the previous draft threads and am looking forward to being a more frequent poster from now on

    I'll give it a try if there's space, but wouldn't 11 fit better with the last 2 rounds having 22 players available?
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    Anyone want to join the Society?

    Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.

    I like the idea of giving the last placed person a choice between two players.

    Also means that there is potential for really good players not to get picked.
