    That's actually a good idea. Wouldn't the person going first just pick Bradman?

    We could start off by using the latest test to be played to prevent that tbh.

    Athlai doesn't lie. And he doesn't do sarcasm either, so you know it's true!

    Good idea! Sachin or Murali hmm..

    EDIT - just thinking about this more, I hope it doesn't just end up being a current players/recently retired draft.

    An even better idea would be to start with a random year (each drafter gets a different random year to start with). You might use an excel randomizer for that, if you wish to. Start soon, I'm ineterested in participating.

    Nice ideas there and sounds good. I can delay my draft for a rainy day so go ahead. As long as we have some draft I'll be happy./

    I think thats a really good idea, or having a format based on that plan anyway. Though I'm always keen for the drafts so would be willing to compete no matter what the format.
