“I'm writing a book on magic”, I explain, and I'm asked, “Real magic?” By real magic people mean miracles, thaumaturgical acts, and supernatural powers. “No”, I answer: “Conjuring tricks, not real magic”. Real magic, in other words, refers to the magic that is not real, while the magic that is real, that can actually be done, is not real magic.”
― Lee Siegel, 'Net of Magic: Wonders and Deceptions in India'
Pick One could be Garry Sobers.
Pick Two Curtly Ambrose via West Indian nationality.
Pick Three Fred Trueman via having a batting average within two runs of Ambrose.
Pick Four could be Ian Botham via English nationality.
I'd prefer a free, classic draft, though, personally.

What about a simple clause like you need to pick at least one player from each test playing nation. Keeps it a bit more interesting tactically.
I also really liked the idea of having a limit on the amount of tests your team has played. Say 250 tests max for your entire team would be interesting...
I think chain draft would be fun. We did enjoy the Scorecard Draft so yeah something like that can be fun compared to our classic drafts.

All that chain draft talk did remind me of the Scorecard Draft as well.
I'm in favour of a classic draft ftr.
