    CW Draft League - The Reserves

    UPDATE: 16/9/2012

    Draft League Reserves - Third Draft
    Rules:
    • Only players to have debuted before the Second World War (everything before 1939, inclusive) are eligible
    • Bradman, as per usual in random draft orders, cannot be selected.
    • You have 12 hours to make you pick, and can catch up at any time (please note, double picks at the end of a round get 24 hours).


    Round 1:
    Camo999 - WG Grace
    8ankitj - Sydney Barnes
    Cabinet96 - Jack Hobbs
    rvd619323 - Wally Hammond
    Agent TBY
    MrPrez
    morgieb

    Round 2:
    morgieb
    MrPrez
    Agent TBY
    rvd619323
    Cabinet96
    8ankitj
    Camo999

    Round 3:
    rvd619323
    MrPrez
    Cabinet96
    8ankitj
    Agent TBY
    morgieb
    Camo999

    Round 4:
    Camo999
    morgieb
    Agent TBY
    8ankitj
    Cabinet96
    MrPrez
    rvd619323



    ----------------------








    Alright then, this is running parallel to the CW Draft League proper, which means we're the awesome Division 2 counties looking for promotion. We're looking for at least 8 sign ups, from people who are NOT in the League proper. Sorry Glamorgan.

    The current list:
    1. Monk
    2. morgieb
    3. rvd619323
    4. Michaelf7777777 (I hope I got the number of 7s right)

    So ideally we'd have four more. I promise you won't be as outgunned as Leicestershire is this season. First in, best dressed etc.

    So, the first draft itself:
    • We draft our XIs, they get voted on, the top 2 drafters move into the league proper;
    • 12 hours per pick;
    • Randomised order every second round;
    • Any other suggestions will definitely be taken on board;
    • Smali is barred from participation


    Draft Topic:
    This is a ODI draft, with the following rules:
    • The player drafted must not have played ODI cricket;
    • Domestic career must have been completed by 1980 (exc. South Africans, for whom the date is 1991);
    • Don Bradman is NOT eligible for selection, given the randomised draft order.


    I'll leave sign-ups open for 48 hours or so, then we'll start drafting (assuming people are still interested).

    In.

    Eta: Is this FC/List A domestic only or are you including grade ect? I'd also point that using domestic careers makes this much harder (no statsguru to give a list of valid players).

    Also by 1980 do you mean non inclusive?

    I think it's mostly test cricketers who played before ODIs began.

    Its a rough guide so people don't pick modern players on technicalities. Basically, you can't pick Phil Hughes, or any other domestic player from the 80s onwards who didn't get picked for an ODI.

    Maybe I shouldn't have put a date on it - everyone should maintain the spirit of the draft

    I'm just going to start the draft now - 5 should be enough.


    Round One:
    morgieb - Sydney Barnes
    Valer
    rvd619323
    Monk
    Michael7777777

    Round Two:
    Michael7777777
    Monk
    rvd619323
    Valer
    morgieb
