    Sheep Draft version 4.0

    Its back!

    For those not familiar with the first few Sheep Drafts, I'll ask a couple of questions at a time for example:

    Q1- Select a Cricket with a highest Test score over 260?
    Q2 - Select a Cricketer who's first or last name starts with M?
    Q3 - Select a Cricketer with a highest Test score below 80?

    You email your answers to me, if someone else selects the same player as you, neither of you get that player. You then have a second and third chance however after 3 unsuccessful attempts another selector gets to chose a player who fits the criteria for you, so you are most likely left with the worst player possible.

    If for example person X selects Chris Martin for Q2, while person Y selects Chris Martin for Q3, Q2 will get them.

    There will be a total of 12 questions giving you a chance to balance your final XI a bit more as you'll have no idea what questions are coming.

    I'll start this thing once we get at least 10 people, you'll need to go onto CW once a day (especially on Monday to Friday) to help get yourself a decent team as you have 24 hours to submit your answers.

    Sheep Draft History
    Version 1 - ended half way through
    Version 2 - 1st Blakus, 2nd Matt79, 3rd fredfertang
    Version 3 - 1st Eds, 2nd Blakus, 3rd Pothas

    Let me know if you are keen to play, the more the merrier!

    G'wan then
    Keep thinking it'll be alright if I just get on the road
    If I run I can free my worried mind
    Keep thinking of the day I die when I lose my heavy load
    But I wouldn't want to leave you behind

    That's high praise fred, but I have to agree Tempted to start this very soon with the assumption that we will end up with 12-15 people.

    Poor technique for the above-test level. Plays all around the front feet
