    Icon5 Cricket draft 1945 -1977

    Anybody interested in taking part in a draft that spans the era of post WWII right up until the Centenary Test?

    Irrelevant option in polls being taken to new levels by having an entirely irrelevant poll.

    I applaud your vision

    Haha, yeah, it's pretty irrelevant i know. Thanks for the reply guys, with Pothas, Howe_zat, Monk, Himannv and myself we have five people so far. I was thinking once we get eight people in total we'll start playing, is everyone ok with that? Also, I was thinking that we could all pick an XI plus a 12th man, how does that sound to you?

    Also, a few rules. Firstly, selected players must have made their DEBUT during this era, however, to allow some of the pre-WWII titans into the fold I will accept pre-WWII players who played 75% of their overall matches during this era. This means that players such as Len Hutton, Lindsay Hassett, Cyril Washbrook, Dudley Nourse and Denis Compton will be allowed whereas players such as Don Bradman, Wally Hammond and George Headley cannot be selected.

    Secondly, players who never played in a Test Match but played First Class cricket are allowed to be selected. This means that South African players who were affected by the Apartheid boycott, such as Clive Rice and Garth Le Roux, are up for grabs.

    Finally, the 17th of March, 1977, is the cut off date for players as that was when the Centenary Test ended.

    Any questions?
