    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.

    Thoughts?

    That would work. Although, probably not too narrow as the person going third will be at a severe disadvantage at having missed out on McGrath and Warne. None of the other bowlers come close.

    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.

    Yeah it should be, was awfully behind schedule last time though. I'll get in contact with Howe/Dan to see if they're running it again.

    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.

    Was actually gonna suggest this. Forces everyone to take a good look at all the old players, especially pre-1900 players.
