    But why 50 ODI requirement? Can we not make it 1 ODI?
    Because we will be considering the performances in ODIs. 50 is a fair number to judge.

    Question do we have 6 hours to post a team from the time when we said yes?
    Six hours to post your pick after the one before you has made his pick.

    Will play if you remove the 50 ODIs limit

    You're free to not rate players with fewer caps when it comes to the vote, surely

    50 ODIs is fair number and I also think 6 hours is sufficient time to pick your player...

    Sorry mate, but the thing is ultimately the player's reputation will have a big say. One side has a good team with proper balance while the other side has lets say, Gary Sobers who is probably amongst the top three cricketers of all time. Even though, Sobers played only one ODI and didn't do that well, his name will be difficult to ignore. I hope you understand it. Cheers.

    Ok, we have 14 registrants including Howe_zat. I know the limit was set at 12, but I think we can have two more. We will then have two groups of seven teams where the top four from each group will progress to the Quarter Finals. What say, guys?

    But we'll be rating the players based on their ODI exploits. I think everyone here is smart enough to see Sobers in an all time ODI line up and not judge him and his role in the team based on his test exploits.

    I understand the potential problem you have, but I think people will be sensible and view Sobers for the ODI player he was, and therefore not rate him very highly.

    Hmmmm.

    Lets see what a few others say regarding this. If they're ok, then we will go ahead with this.

    I'll stay out then, as we're oversubscribed.

    I think the 50 game limit is fine mate. Make whatever rules you want.

    I see this 6 hour thing lasting all of three picks before it is changed to 24 hours.
    I got great enjoyment shouting "WHY THE **** ISN'T THIS GAME BEING PLAYED AT THE BASIN?!>!?!?" to reasonably significant cheers from the sparse crowd
    one day NZ will bring chappell to his knees in a puddle of his own tears and you'll see Phlegm on his belly greedily tasting every delicious tear before watching the hope fade from that old ****s eyes.
    Overrated XI Warner, Rutherford, Steve Smith, Rahane, Bairstow, Alecz Day, Donovan Grobelaar, Luke Ronchi, Faulkner, Dan Christian, Permaul

    awta

    I would also second this
    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta

    Fair enough.

    No minimum games etc required. Also, you lot want to increase the time limit to twelve hours?
