    Quickie Draft Thread

    Stealing this off CricSim (not sure if there's been one in the past on CW). Just a thread for when you're bored and want to have a quick 2 or 3 way draft on anything cricket.

    Just had a post WWII - 1970 one with Jager, ended up with this

    Jager

    1. Bob Simpson
    2. Geoff Boycott
    3. Neil Harvey
    4. Garfield Sobers
    5. Sir Clyde Walcott
    6. Denis Compton
    7. Alan Knott+
    8. Mike Procter
    9. Richie Benaud*
    10. Alan Davidson
    11. Ray Lindwall

    Daemon

    1. Hanif Mohammad
    2. Bill Lawry
    3. Sir Everton Weekes
    4. Graeme Pollock
    5. Keith Miller
    6. Clive Lloyd*
    7. Farokh Engineer +
    8. Alec Bedser
    9. Jim Laker
    10. Fred Trueman
    11. Fazal Mahmood

    Any glaring omissions you blokes can spot? Don't be too harsh on me, I'm not too good with old timey cricket

    barrington?
    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

    Thought about him, but remember people abusing the **** on CW so decided to give him a miss.

    No Bradman, or was it debut post WWII?
    5-0

    RIP Craig Walsh (Craig) 1985-2012

    Proudly supporting the #2 cricketer of all time.

    No 'glaring omissions' in that both teams are very strong.

    As well as the forementioned Barrington I assume you also considered;

    Arthur Morris
    Conrad Hunte
    Peter May
    Greg Chappell (debuted Dec 11, 1970)
    Rohan Kanhai
    Wes Hall
    Neil Adcock
    John Snow
    John Waite
    Denis Lindsay

    But of themselves I don't think that any of those players would add a great deal to either team - "swings and round-a-bouts".

    "I strongly feel the ICC should take action to ban the doosra since it just cannot be bowled legally. Ashley Mallett has said the 'doosra is nothing but chucking' and Australian spinners, including Shane Warne, have raised an alarm against coaching it in Australia." - BISHAN BEDI (2010)

    Debuts in 1970 weren't allowed. Chappell and Barry Richards would've been in our XIs for sure if they were

    Actually, about the only thing I could say is that Jager's team bats all the way down to No.11 as even Lindwall has a Test match century. Plus Procter and Lindwall are faster than Trueman and Miller, so the attack has a bit more fire-power.

    But's that's just being nit-picky I think.

    Yeah, his batting depth is definitely much superior, that's not being nit picky at all. Jager brought up Frank Worrell over Clive Lloyd. Thoughts?
