    We had one of those already. Was called Era draft or something like that.

    Indeed, we're likely to do one of them for season four

    I like Jagers original idea of 11-12 different categories for each player selected (Sri Lankan, Yorkshireman, Pre-WWI etc).

    Why not get people to suggest the categories they want ('brain-storm'), then someone can select the best ones and get the ball rolling.

    My category: A spin bowler from India

    If you're doing that why not have it so each member of the draft selects a category for the round they pick first in and then make it up with a free for all at the end?

    Cheers KK. Really not sure what balance to go with, with Grace very capable of bowling, and Walcott very capable of taking the gloves. Maybe one more bowling option in the top 7 to share the fifth bowling with Grace.

    I would personally just leave Grace as the permanent fifth bowler
