    Draft: Best of 1980s and 1990s

    would like to start a new draft to choose players who dominated test cricket in the 80s and 90s. the idea is to build a test XI using players who were active in those decades

    The conditions are:

    Between Jan 1st 1978 and Dec 31 2002.

    they should have played at least 40 tests
    or
    scored a minimum of 1500 runs
    or
    made at least 5 scores of 50 and above
    or
    taken 75 wickets or more
    or
    taken at least 5 four-wicket hauls
    or
    taken 50+ catches
    or
    won 2 "man of the match" awards
    or
    won one "man of the series" award


    One very important condition: the player should have made his debut five years before the cut off, that is before December 31, 1997; and he should not have retired within five years from the start date, that is before January 1, 1983. We don't want champions from 70s and 00s polluting this team. No gilchrist. No boycott.


    if enough guys sign up we can start this draft asap

    If you were that old, and that kind, and the very last of your kind, you couldn't just stand back and watch children cry.

    The more the better imo, but we may have to relax some of the criteria in the OP to have enough players available in the later rounds
