    Random Player Draft

    With two other drafts coming to a close I've got another idea I wouldn't mind trying whereby 12 players go around in rotating draft order (1st then 2nd, then 3rd all the way through to 12th in each round so if you start 7th your position is 7, 8, 9, 10,11, 12, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6). Each round I will put every test cricketer into a random generator and the first 36 will be available for selection in that round. The teams will be judged on the best XI both in the poll and in any sim which may eventuate.

    Sounds interesting to me.

    I also have an idea for a non-Auction draft to take up some time before weldone's auction-style draft is finished and I might then do another auction one - will post up details over the weekend.
    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!
