The taboo draft's finished except for one selection and the quick ATG test draft is almost over too, so all good to continue.
kingkallis- Garfield Sobers
Himannv- Imran Khan
Marcuss- Adam Gilchrist
Cabinet96- Keith Miller
Eds- Malcolm Marshall

Oh for a strong arm and a walking stick

Mate, I'll give it a miss (slot in the reserves). I enjoy the end product of the drafts, but hate the waiting between picks. I will check in though a bit and vote on the best teams and give my 2 cents.
BTW re: Bradman, why don't you make him as a bit of a wildcard or something? So everyone has the opportunity to select The Don but if they do it means that their next pick is skipped and they automatically get the last pick of the game or something along those lines. It makes it interesting this way - I doubt everyone will sacrifice a round 2 pick just to get Bradman in round 1..
Also if I was creating a draft - I would exclude every single cricketer named in a prior draft.
Four hours have passed since I declared the draft open again, so Marcuss has eight hours to make his pick.
Appreciate Swanneh For The Genius He Is.
Bore off, seriously.
Only fair I take the greatest bowler to have ever lived, with the first bowler pick.
9. Malcolm Marshall

Was stuck between Marshall and Miller for my first pick. Decided that Miller would be the more beneficial for the balance of the side though.
Allrounders should score plenty of runs and take plenty of wickets in the same game to be classified as 'Great' in my opinion. Like Sobers, Botham, Kapil Dev, Miller....

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)
That too and sometimes the impact he had on opposition and the team itself; just a mere presence of Imran could have been a great lift
