    Experience Draft - Poll

    The concept :
    I've just had another new idea for a test match draft with players being eligible for different rounds based on the number of test matches that they have played over the course of their careers. Their will be 11 rounds with the teams being put to a forum vote and possibly a sim.


    1. 1-10 tests
    2. 11-20 tests
    3. 21-30 tests
    4. 31-40 tests
    5. 41-50 tests
    6. 51-60 tests
    7. 61-70 tests
    8. 71-80 tests
    9. 81-100 tests
    10. 101-120 tests
    11. 121+ tests

    Could a moderator edit the poll and remove the rogue "e" on the end of Sean's name please?

    Could you also correct the spelling of Michael's name? Merci

    Michaelf7777777 Got the (8th) best batsman and (undisputed by the sane of mind) best bowler and (arguably, not my personal opinion) best all rounder of all time in the same team.

    I love the balance of my side, just think it's difficult to look past Michael's in terms of quality though.

    I can see Michael sweeping this. 2 of Seans top 3 and quality every else.

    However I'm going to vote for Fredfertang as his team is the one I'd most want to watch. Style, class and entertainment in every department.

    Michael, Blakus and Fredfertang for mine. Maybe too many Poms in Fred's for my liking.

    Michael the standout choice.

    I reckon my team lacked a true superstar like a Bradman to make voters show interest.

    Hard to go past any side with Sobers and Bradman in it, but you have to love Blakus's bowling attack & his batting v strong too. Faulkner a good batsman to be coming in at seven.

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."

    This. Especially when the rest of the side contains guys like Trueman, Grimmett, Ponsford, Neil Harvey and Hunte. Awesome balance and awesome talent.

    Voted for Michael.
    Would love to see the draft order. Cant understand how someone can grab all 3 of Sobers, Bradman and McGrath.
