Gun. Who are the two relegated from the main league?
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.
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:
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

You have got to earn the right to be aggressive.
All right, this is extremely tricky.
Barry Richards (4)
Balance - 146
Mike Procter (7)
Balance - 143
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.
(...Whoops - just realised that you've started already. Please ignore me as per usual)

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)
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:
Don Bradman (52 Tests)
