    FWIW, even though your day sucked, your draft team is beginning to look imposing. Bowling attack shaping up very nicely. Love a team that contains two genuine spin options.

Instinct says two, which would mean morgieb and Monk gain promotion at the end of the round and the bottom two vote pollers exit the league until they are in line to re-enter. This adds pressure to the draft, as in future rounds even the championship leader may be relegated for a round after a disaster of a draft.

    We have six points-scoring positions (1-6), four neutral mid-table positions (7-10) and two demotion positions (11-12).

    First draft rules
    ATG test draft, players must have played at least one test match.
    No Bradman.
    There is a 12 hour selection zone before you are skipped. You still choose at any time, but the draft continues and you may miss out on players.
    We will have twelve rounds. Your 12th pick does not have to be your 12th man.
    A new thread will go up on Cricket Chat where everyone votes on three different teams, which is how we will determine the winners, point-scorers etc.

    Alright, the draft league is on.
    Just had a thought (yeah yeah, a rarity I know). What happens if there are more than 2 teams tied for demotion? It is possible that 3 or more teams might all be stuck on zero points, or 1 point, or whatever.

    Not sure what to suggest though. However, we don't want to get into the situation where everyone has to vote for their 2 worst teams. It could get acrimonous.

    Perhaps we could just say that 2 teams are demoted when possible, but if there happen to be more than 2 teams tied on points (or no points) then those teams (3 or more) all get demoted?

    I think that a specific time frame for voting is also advisable. Say, 1 week. Otherwise when do you know to declare the winners/losers since the whole of Cricketweb is voting?

    Or, it is compulsory for all participants in the Draft League AND the Reserve Draft League to vote, but the voting is still left open for a week so that other interested Cricketweb people can vote as well.

    But now I'm starting to crap on........

    Gutted Macartney got snatched from me! Good pick Eds. Ponny also a great selection, he was a colossus. Watson, I have been struggling to figure out the voting too - what happens in the third and fourth 'seasons' of the Draft League? Will people start strategically voting for other competitors in order to give themselves an advantage? I would hope that we all agree on an honour code - we all vote on who we genuinely believe are the three best sides. Anyone can vote though, seeing as a large majority of CW drafters are involved in the League and the Reserves.

    For three/four teams sitting with same amount of votes, then tie breaker voting can be done between only those teams; there can be better solution though

    Oh and I choose Alec Stewart, after much consideration. I will play him as an opener though, where he had all of his success. He averaged 45 as an opening batsman and became a very reliable gloveman as his career progressed.

    I'm optimistic. People like seeing great cricket teams and will therefore vote for them. That's why we come here.

    Rohan Kanhai at this point in the draft is as obvious as an obvious thing for the No.3 spot because Chappell and Kanhai batting together would be superb to watch. Chappell working the ball to the onside boundary off his pads, and Kanhai stroking it through the covers for 4.

    Stewart will need at least 10 weetbix for breaky if he's combining opening and keeping duties.

    However, I'm really interested to see who you will pick as your batting allrounder for the No.7 spot Jager. But I won't guess out loud.......

    Some really good teams beginning to form here. Good to see. Jager's team really starting to look one of the classier.

    On that note, delighted with the way my team has taken shape. I firmly believe it would have been absolutely fantastic to watch if nothing else.

    That top four would be enthralling to watch. The majesty of Richards, the raw aggression of Greenidge, the talent of Lara and of course the governor general... one of my all time favourites. I wish I could find footage of him batting.

    The main question is, who will out-score who?

    And which bowler will I put on to contain Richards and Macartney if the pair 'get-going' similtaneously?
