    Clause- Player is a part of cricketing folklore.

    (a bit subjective, I know, but part of the clause means you have to write a 50+ word piece on why your player is part of cricketing folklore. Bit different to something stats driven I guess).

    Oh and Eds gets my vote (with 2 points, to 1 point for Himanv, 0.5 points for AndyZH, Kingkallis and Kyear, and 0 points for the rest).
    He just didn't vote in the poll.

    Yeah, unfortunately you were one of the people who lost a vote because of the Rowann75 account.

    Monk I think the folklore question is too easy to twist - any chance of you thinking up a new one?

    I can, but I thought something that was a bit more creative might be a bit different to the usual stats driven stuff/country based stuff might be more interesting. It's basically an open clause, but you have to give a bit of anecdotal evidence as to why your player is part of cricketing folklore.

    My alternate clause can be-

    A player who captained his test team against one of the following Australian test captains-

    Warwick Armstrong, Don Bradman, Richie Benaud, Ian Chappell or Mark Taylor



    Or...


    An English player who played against Australia in the 1948 or the 1989 Ashes series.

    Sent mine via VM but I think I'll change it.

    Clause: Involved in a test match with Vijay Merchant.

    Nothing to do with this Draft, but I have an idea for a future Draft that we may want to keep up our sleeve. If I don't write it down now then it will probably vanish from my head by next week.

    Basically each participant gets to select from a pool of their choice. The 3 pools are;

    POOL A: 'Convicts and Soldiers'
    Australia
    England
    New Zealand

    POOL B: 'Africans at Heart'
    South Africa
    West Indies
    Zimbabwe

    POOL C: 'Great Asia'
    India
    Pakistan
    Sri Lanka
    Bangladesh

    Each participant doesn't have to nominate from which pool they are going to select from until it's their turn in Round 1. When it is their turn then they will indicate their pool of choice - 'Imran Khan. POOL C 'Great Asia'.

    I think that the tactics necessary will be interesting. Obviously POOL A will have the greater number of players to draw from, but if the first 3 participants select POOL A then it may be better to switch to POOL B to maximise selection choices.

    I call it: 'The ABC Draft'
