    Pakistan - Watson
    Sri Lanka - Coronis
    New Zealand - Justo

    The order would still be randomly generated, and the time limit 24 hours, but BeeGee would have to wait for Pothas to pick, and Andy would have to wait for Morgeib to pick.

    Thoughts?
    Yes, Coronis should play.

    I'll finish this one using the same format, and if someone else wants to run one after this finishes with Watto's format, go for it!

    Hope that I didn't offend.The Draft as it stands is a very clever way of moving a things along quickly, and getting a interesting spectrum of players selected at the same time. Just concerned for Cabinet's wrists, that's all.

    Nah mate. No offense taken at all. Probably would be better to have a different option for Zim/Ban, but to be fair we need to finish this one this way.

    And I think that Keith Miller completes Round 6 - which perhaps makes some kind of Draft speed record?

    Gilly, McGrath, Warne, Lillee and O'Reilly. Can't really argue against any of them being picked so early.

    Given he is an allrounder and of such quality,I only really see Gilly being picked ahead of him in a draft.

    Sitting in a good spot with Faulkner, Flower and Miller as all rounders. Allows you a fair bit of flexibility in later rounds.
