Any ideas for the next draft? The clause draft that the top tier are doing looks really fun, but it would probably be boring for the guy who gets relegated.
Knocking a few ideas around
Something from that alphabet thread from a few days ago, e.g. you have to pick someone whose name starts with the last letter of the last player you picked, or you have to pick all your 12 players in alphabetical order.
A draft where you can only picked players who never played a test, or players who played a maximum of x tests. Or say everyone has a maximum of (say) 150 Tests to "spend" on their team, and your 12 players must have played fewer than 150 Tests between them.
Everyone available, but the draft order for each round is determined by the batting averages of every player picked in the previous round.
Quite like the maximum number of tests idea.
When you say the draft order is determined by the batting averages of each player, what do you mean specifically?
Like all those suggestions. Particularly like the idea about players who never played a test.
Another suggestion could be only those with a batting average below 40 and (if applicable) a bowling average over 30.
An attempt to draft the worst team imaginable?

What would be the qualification? At least one test?
Devillier has the ability to show ball the right path, there are two ways to do so, 1. form where the ball is coming, 2 where the ball is going to
Amla can just hit the ball harder with the use of timing and strock
Devilliers is younger so he will learn with the passage of time
Devilliers plays in all the situations and conditons while all amla is a powerplay player
So Devillieris can be said as better
Drafting horrific teams is funny but it's too hard to determine a winner since most of the players are one or two match flops.
Oh for a strong arm and a walking stick
Your team must be in alphabetical order by surname. You can start anywhere is the alphabet. Or is that idea too silly?
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)
Actually, now that I think about it - that idea would work better with more participants as you need greater competition between the key letters of the alphabet.
Okay so let's say we go with that draft idea.
Do we have to wait for someone to be "relegated" from the ongoing Clause Draft in the main league before running it?
Yes, we can only start when they finish.
Season four should be ready to start in a day or two.
