    Mystery Box Draft

    A draft where the player pool for each round is randomly selected, from all the thousands of Test cricketers.

    On top of that, you won't know who the players are. You'll know their country, role (batsman, bowler, allrounder or wicketkeeper) and their year of debut. At the end of each round I'll say who has been drafted onto each team.

    Every 5 years we have an election and have to decide who are the least obnoxious out of all the men. Then one gets in and they age really quickly. Which is always fun to watch.

    Indians can't bowl - Where has the rumour come from as I myself and many indian friends arwe competent fast bowlers ?

    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left

    Sure thing. How many players will be up for drafting each round? Should be at least one more than the number of participants IMO, as opposed to the same number.

    It'll be around 20, I think. The majority of Test cricketers are not draft material so I'm ok with a lot of them being left on the shelf.

    Also it'll be funny if Tendulkar or someone doesn't get picked.
