    Cricket draft - who's up next?

    Who's up next for running a draft? Would be a welcome diversion from the daytime soap operas playing out elsewhere on the forums.

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

    How about a Random Country Draft with a bit of a twist just to pass the time till weldone or hb get theirs up?

    Never ran a draft before but figured I'll have 3 pools of countries where people can select players from and email them to me. If people pick the same player, that player is disqualified and you will end up with an average player listed by me before the round begins.

    I'm not a fan of overly long drawn out drafts though so the deadlines will be tight. Fail to pick and you'll get an ordinary player. No player swapping at the end.

    If you guys are cool with it I dont mind taking it up.

    How about a Test Draft, where you have to pick players who didn't play against or play in the same team as anyone else in your XI?

    I had an idea for the converse, actually. A test draft where each consecutive pick has to be a player that featured in a test the previous player played in, either in the same team or against. Could have a few hilarious plays, where everyone tries to avoid going back far enough to gift Bradman to the next selector.
