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)
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?
"If that Swann lad is the future of spin bowling in this country, then we're ****ed." - Nasser Hussain, 1997.
Do you want the clauses here or pm. Also how about making the person use the clause they propose in the first round?
Just a thought.
Hutton* | Hobbs | Bradman | Richards^ | Tendulkar | Sobers5^ | Gilchrist+ | Khan3 | Marshall1 | Warne4^ | McGrath2
Sutcliffe | Gavaskar* | Headley | Chappell^ | Lara^ | Kallis5^ | Knott+ | Hadlee3 | Ambrose2 | Lillee1 | Muralitharan4
Greenidge | Richards^ | Ponting^ | Pollock | Hammond^ | Worrell5* | Waite+ | Akram3 | Steyn1 | Holding2 | O'Reilly4
Morris | Simpson^ | Sangakkara | Weekes^ | Border*^ | Walcott+ | Faulkner5 | Laker4 | Trueman1 | Garner3 | Donald2
My clause is "Players with a fredfertang feature about them"
Pick someone who played test cricket for a country they weren't born in. Eg, born in France played for England
