    I'm not completely sure but it looked like a repeat of Hall bowling to me.

    He looked pretty bloody fast. Intimidating sort of bowling action too.

    Sorry about the delay guys.

    I'll be making an interesting pick and choose Hashim Amla.

    Healy (WK)
    Proctor
    Willis
    Statham
    Muralitharan

    Res: Saqlain Mushtaq

    The batting isn't the best, but hopefully the depth of Proctor at 8 makes up for that!

    Batting looks pretty good to me! Now it's just Cevno and we're good to go.

    Ah, I found Marcuss' lineup how he wanted it. I am assuming Goddard will be his twelfth man. I will make the thread now.

    Time to prepare for the second season of the League. I want to make sure everyone knows the rules beforehand so we can start sooner rather than later (obviously after voting is over).

    Rules for the voodoo draft
    - The concept of this draft style is to marginally reduce the selection pool of players in order to increase the difficulty and use of strategy.
    - At the start of each round, all drafters will need to send me an email nominating the player they want in their team. If two people select the same player, that player becomes unavailable to all drafters (becomes voodoo).
    - The players who become voodoo will not appear on the selection board in order to make it visually easier for players to see who needs to repick. They will appear on the voodoo list below.
    - Every player who chooses someone without challenge instantly gets their pick.
    - The players who get eliminated/selected will be posted up by myself, and then the players who drew for someone will then get a chance to choose someone else.
    - I will need to select my player beforehand so that it is fair for everyone (honour code applies for me).
    - Don Bradman will be available for selection.
    - My email I will use will be mrtownsend@live dot com.

    Example round using current players. Players who appear on the lists are those that will be kept. The drafter is then locked out for the rest of the round

    R1.1
    kingkallis-
    Himannv- Richard Hadlee

    MrPrez- Garfield Sobers

    Voodoo list: Don Bradman

    kyear2- Shane Warne

    Voodoo list: Don Bradman, Glenn McGrath


    R1.3
    kingkallis- Curtly Ambrose
    Himannv- Richard Hadlee
    Marcuss- Len Hutton
    Cabinet96- Imran Khan
    Eds- Viv Richards
    Cevno- Jack Hobbs
    Blakus- Muttiah Muralitharan
    MrPrez- Garfield Sobers
    watson- Phil Tufnell
    Jager- Keith Miller
    AndyZaltzHair- Malcolm Marshall
    kyear2- Shane Warne

    Voodoo list: Don Bradman, Glenn McGrath

    That would be one round. Easy enough to understand?
