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......
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.
No one ever talks about 'the weak, silent type'. When's their moment?
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?

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.

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
