Fred Spofforth, 'The Demon Speaks'The figures Sir Home Hordon has shown me of what Grace did in matches against me, 37 innings, 1042 runs, 28.16 average, considerably less than his general average, hears out my theory that I never had any particular difficulty in getting him out. I clean bowled him seven times, ACM Croome says that WG told him that on any wicket he never knew when I should bowl him. This may have been due in part to my artfulness......
I like this draft idea, since its nice and quick. Anyone who avoids Zimbabwe and Bangladesh in the last few rounds are going to have a good looking side. Actually, its probably good to avoid Bangladesh for the last 10 rounds!

You have got to earn the right to be aggressive.
In the future maybe this draft could be run with two separate groups of 10 people? At the end, the top 5 players from each group could play off in a finals competition?
That would allow more participants, but make the draft slower, so probably defeats the purpose.

It is possible for someone to randomly get Zimbabwe/Bangladesh multiple times just because of bad luck. Therefore, the ability to create a good cricket team is pretty much out of the Drafters hands. I'm not sure that I like this complete reliance on good luck.
Perhaps there should be a maximum of one Zimbabwe player and one Bangladesh player per team. Should you get Zimbabwe or Bangladesh a second time then this automatically means that you get to select any player of your choice from any country once all the other Drafters have selected for the Round.
