    We had a three way tie between kingkallis, Marcuss and Cevno - just sorting that one out now.
    Oh for a strong arm and a walking stick

    So Cevno comes in for Agent and Howe in for Rvd?

    So these are our participants: Camo999, 8ankitj, Cabinet96, Howe_Zat, Cevno, MrPrez, morgieb

    Is it agreed that we are going to do a maximum total tests draft?

    Seems to be the plan, let's get started.

    The Rules:

    1. Everyone is eligible to be picked. We're picking a team to play Tests.
    2. Your team, including your 12th man, must have played a grand total of 150 Tests or fewer.
    3. Maximum 12 hours per pick.

    Round 1 order:

    8ankitj
    Cabinet96
    rvd619323
    Cevno
    morgieb
    Howe_zat
    Camo999
    MrPrez

    Can I recommend that we make the limit slightly higher? I think the strength of the picks will start reasonably strong, but go off pretty quickly, leading people to pick current players who have just started their careers such as Philander or Pattinson.

    With the current limit, even the likes of Graeme Pollock have played far more tests than the average tests per player would allow.

    Yeah I agree 12.5 test per player is too low. Any chance of reviving it? 300 tests gives you an average of 25 test per player to hit which is reasonable enough.

    Nah. Get creative.

    It means that picking "standard" players who turn up in these drafts is a massive investment of resources and I want to see who's prepared to take the plunge.

    Very interesting idea for a draft

    I think that would still be the case with, say 250 tests.

    If you want to stick with 150 tests that's fine, but I just think it may become to difficult in the later rounds. And the standard of the teams may become very poor.

    Can you pick players who didn't play any Tests at all?

    An average of 12.5 Tests does seem rather low.

    Each of the completed teams will be a mixture of players from the19th century, promising novices, South Africans just before they got banned, and the sick & injury prone. Not very expansive.

    Therefore, an average of about 20 does seem more fun.

    Originally I wasn't going to participate this time around, but I'm interested in this concept, so I may as well have a crack.

    I'll go with the opposite direction:
