    Real time draft- tonight, here.

    Sign up if you want. Will start this at 8 pm Australian EDT tonight (Saturday).


    Rules

    * Each team must contain one player from each of the following countries:
    - Australia
    - NZ OR Sri Lanka
    - SA
    - WI
    - England
    - Pakistan
    - India

    * Any player who has played at least one test can be selected.

    * Bradman can be chosen, but the player choosing him forfeits his/her choice in the next round (just to make it fun!)

    * Each player has only 5 minutes to select a player after the player before him/her has selected.

    * Will run it if we have at least 5 participants. Participants to remain on line for the duration of the draft.

    * I'll randomise an order before we start and then it'll reverse for R2 etc.



    Let me know with a quick post if you're interested, and we'll kick it off this evening.

    Rejecting 'analysis by checklist' and 'skill absolutism' since Dec '09
    'Stats' is not a synonym for 'Career Test Averages'

    Like the rules (especially the Bradman clause, one that I had floated to Jager for prev drafts), notice no Sri lanka, wonder if that can be added to the N.Z selection.

    Sure, we'll combine SL/NZ.
