    What format is everyone keen on? Hopefully we can decide on something tonight. Will be based on Test matches, whatever it is.
    Oh for a strong arm and a walking stick

    Not really interested in a 'classic' draft. I thought the 'clause draft' idea from before has some legs in it.
    I'm always suspicious of shops that sell bait.

    Monk coordinated a Draft recently where each team had at least one rep from each of the major Test playing nations. I think that it worked quite well, and would be easy to organise.

    Keen for another clause draft, myself. Start sending your clauses in, make sure there's a decent amount of players that fall under the parameters.

    Clause: Must be involved in a 9th wicket (Test match) partnership of 100 runs or more.

    I should be joint first with Blakus, if Zaremba's vote is included?

    This might need defining a bit more. For example, this months article is about the 1958/59 England touring team and mentions several players (eg Peter May). Is it OK to use one of those several players even though the article isn't specifically about them as such?

    Pick someone who played test cricket for a country they weren't born in. Eg, born in France played for England

    It would have to be a biography piece.

    So, basically most of the better English players of the last 30 years?
