Current English County Cricket Draft
Misson Statement - To compile a squad to compete over the 3 formats (4 day, 40 over, 20 over) of a hypothetical English county season where no international cricket is played (i.e. Full England player availability) based on current players.
6 or 8 Participants each draft a squad of 16 English domestic qualified players + 2 overseas players drafted in final two rounds
Snake Draft i.e. abc.. cba
Player selection based on current day but short term injuries or form not a consideration
12 hour time limit per selection
Eligibility of English domestic qualified players = anyone currently playing in county cricket who isn't classified as an overseas player
Eligibility of Overseas Players = Don't have to have played county cricket this season or ever( i.e. best players in the world - assume no international cricket, ipl)
(e.g. For Gloucestershire Hamish Marshall, Roderick, Fuller are classified as domestic qualified players and can be selected in your 16. Klinger and Christian are classified as overseas players and can not be included in your 16 but can be included as overseas players)
Assume Overseas player use as in current domestic cricket. 1 Overseas allowed in 4 day and 40 over, 2 allowed in 20 over.
You will need a decent grasp of the players in English domestic cricket or at least the ability to look at cricinfo
Maybe a brief sentence on each player and the reasons selected and an assesment at the end of the qualities of the squad assembled.
Vote at end for the best squad/ strongest teams for the competitions
