    No, nothing yet. With the site downtime and me being away most of the weekend I never intended starting it for a few more days. Up to 11 entrants, but always room for more!

    maybe marc did not receive as many responses as he expected?
    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta

    You will be picking a team of 11 from a squad of 15, so we will have 15 rounds, and the budget for the whole draft is $15m. The draft will run as previously so I will pick the highest bid from everyone and they get that player, then the highest bid for the remaining players and so on. An example of how this works (featuring 2 of the best players in history plus Twatto) is here

    If you don't get a highest bid then you end up with whatever is left but pay the highest bid in the round. For an idea of how this works, check out the previous draft thread: here

    There are 13 players to bid on, everyone picked a different player which is quite surprising - they are as follows:

    Aubrey Faulkner
    Barry Richards
    Brian McMillan
    Colin Bland
    Denis Lindsay
    Eddie Barlow
    Hashim Amla
    Hugh Tayfield
    Jackie McGlew
    Mike Proctor
    Muttiah Muralitharan
    Paul Harris
    Shaun Pollock

    What you need to do now is place bids for the players by email. Also in that email plase include your nomination for round 2 which will be covering the West Indies and Pakistan. The deadline for this is 7pm GMT on Wednesday 7th (please bear in mind I may not run the draft immediately at that time but I will ignore anything received after that time!)

    Do you have to bid on every player?

    Not necessary, but it'll be good for you if you do. Otherwise you might end up with a junk player with the highest bid of the round, as per the rules.

    Yes, as weldone says there is a danger of ending up with a complete numpty and losing half your budget on it - made worse last time by some of the posters nominating numpties every round!
