Barnes in this match revealed himself once more as one of the most remarkable bowlers that this country has ever produced. He has a positively wonderful command of the leg break.... His great height makes it difficult for the batsman to follow the flight of the ball. He is useful on every kind of wicket, whereas few bowlers of his pace are able to bowl on a sticky wicket. - JACK HOBBS, 'My Cricket Memories' (1924)
I was thinking a "duel draft".
We have 12 players, tournament format, and drafters play matches against each other with very narrow parameters for the players they can select, e.g "must have played under the captaincy of Strauss or Ponting".
4 groups of 3, 2 group stage matches then semi finals and a grand final.
Even better if the semi-finalists and finalists can all get on line at the same time so we can watch the drama unfold in 'real-time'.

Just the first idea that came into my head, I doubt we'd use that. Will wait until more people weigh in before going ahead with it
May need to cut the voting time down from the current 1 week. Otherwise the whole thing will drag on for a month or so.
One day voting for sure.
Will the reserve league be running again? Heh, would love to get in to this.

Keen for a draft regardless of the format.

How about a pre-war draft? It's simple enough to get going immediately and we've only done it once before in the history of CW.
