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
there are enough people causing delays already.....no more needed
From the OP:
Not sure if that's changed along with the way, but does that make Howe's picks not.. illegal?As the title suggests, it will be an all time ODI draft where the performances will be based on performances in ODIs only. The requirement needed for a player to be eligible for the draft is that he should have played at least 50 ODIs.

Surely the players we have all been picking have played ODIs and will be judged on that?
If it's now open slather on players who have never played ODIs, I'll take Keith Miller.
If we're still playing by the same criteria we have for the first six rounds, I'll take Simon O'Donnell.
- Sachin Tendulkar
- Brad Haddin (wk)
- Dean Jones
- Ian Botham
- Simon O'Donnell (or Keith Miller)
- Curtly Ambrose
- Dennis Lillee

I'll not pick him if people have beef with it. I just assumed no-one would vote for me.

Even though we scrapped the 50 ODIs rule, I thought people would pick the players based on their ODI performances. And, Yeah. The player must have at least played in ODIs. We can't go on and select the past greats who didn't play in the ODIs. Otherwise, it ruins the essence of the draft.
