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......
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.

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.
