Fred Spofforth, 'The Demon Speaks'The figures Sir Home Hordon has shown me of what Grace did in matches against me, 37 innings, 1042 runs, 28.16 average, considerably less than his general average, hears out my theory that I never had any particular difficulty in getting him out. I clean bowled him seven times, ACM Croome says that WG told him that on any wicket he never knew when I should bowl him. This may have been due in part to my artfulness......
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.

I'm in favour of a classic draft ftr.
