    Left Handers Draft Thread

    I've just come up with an idea (actually borrowed from another forum) for a draft made up of either left handed batsman or left handed bowlers. I'll make it a 12 round draft with the order reversing and a new random order being decided every two rounds. Here are therules regarding player eligibility.

    1. To be eligible players need to have played test cricket and be either a left armed batsman or a left armed bowler.

    2. LHB who bowl right arm are only allowed to bat in the top 6 or be 12th man in the completed team.

    3. RHB who bowl left arm are only allowed to bat from 7-11 or be 12th man in the completed team

    4. Wicketkeepers (Who will be defined as having made a stumping in first class cricket) only need to be a left handed batsman to be selected and can bat anywhere in the order as long as they are the designated keeper in the final XI.

    Please sign up if interested

    Yeah sure. Will be a draft where we run out of greats very quickly and those are always interesting.

    Count me in. Were you going to randomly select a starting order, then having everybody move down a place? If so, would suggest 11 would be a good number of players meaning everyone gets a chance to pick first in choosing one of their 11 (or 12 if you want a 12th man).

    Might be tricky towards the final few rounds of the draft but I'm always keen for these.

    @zinzan - What i mean is that i set a draft order for round 1 say 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 but the order then reverses for round 2 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 before being reset for rounds 3 and 4 and so on and so forth.

    So far we have 11 entries so I think we can get started, 12 hours before your pick is skipped and the next person on the list has a go. If another four or five people want to sign on, they can be tacked on to the end of the round 1 order

    Anyway random.org has given the following round 1 order which reverses for round 2

    Round 1

    Would like to follow this thread and comment on the teams (as I'm already busy with my draft).
