    I don't believe in restricting numbers so all are welcome.

    So far:

    Shri
    Hoe?
    Marcuss
    Michael and a lot of 7s
    Howe_Zat?
    Teja
    Himannv
    Hurricane
    Cevno
    Freddie's biggest fan
    Blakus
    NUFAN
    Me

    Won't close entries just yet though

    Please note I will be attempting to balance things by ensuring no person get's first pick more than once - suspect we'll end up with August first somehow.
    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!

    Anyone want to join the Society?

    Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.

    You can remove the question mark, I have no qualms about having fun in this one.
    "Your averages, captain, coaches and players can probably survive incompetence over a relatively short series, so if youíre going to be rubbish, make sure itís against Pakistan, Sri Lanka, New Zealand or someone."

    The question mark was only there because your username is a question IMO.

    Given the lack of restrictions, I'll sneak in there I feel. Sounds interesting.
    My Supporting XI: V Sehwag, T Iqbal, S Katich (c), K Sangakkara, S Chanderpaul, E Morgan, S Al Hasan, M Rahim (+), G Swann, D Steyn, Z Khan

    And here we go - draft order for round 1 (as the first randomisation picked me as first I reran it!)

    Howe_Zat
    morgieb
    Shri
    NUFAN
    Himannv
    G I Joe
    Flyonthewall
    zinzan12
    Teja
    marc71178
    Hurricane
    Noble One
    Cevno
    honestbharani
    Blakus
    Michael7777777

    We'll reverse for round 2 and allow 12 hours per pick (24 hours for the first pick to allow for not knowing when it'd start)

    Yippee! I've already done the (very casual) research so I'll take Clyde Walcott this round.

    You do realise that as first pick you get to choose the month don't you?

    No, I did not. Thought we were starting with January. Embarrassing.

    If that's the case then I'll pick August and nab myself The Don.

    Thought you might - I tried to make it clear, but obviously if I had done so you'd have gone with him (useless hack that he was)

    Hack is the word, so overrated. On current form at least. I heard he hasn't scored any real runs since the late 1980s.
